Created by Master Jigoro Kano in the second half of the 19th century, based on the various styles of Jiu Jiutsu he studied, JUDO (the way of softness) is based on the principle “maximum effectiveness, minimum effort”. Fruit of the desire of its founder to create an instrument that had as main objective the formation of valid citizens, JUDO came to become a sport available to all.
In Isshin Dojo classes we will study this discipline in a non-competitive perspective, oriented to some of the knowledge that is in its base and are, at present, less divulged.
ISSHIN DOJO k i d s
One of our wishes is to help in the growing of happy children, both physically and mentally healthy. That’s why we decided to devote a lot of our energy to the young ones.
Disciplines like Aikido or Dance will help kids develop physical skills such as agility, coordination or correct breathing. Important tools for their future, such as focus and self-confidence, will be provided. In our Philosophy with Children workshops, kids will have the opportunity to ask questions, seek answers, suggest clues. Ultimately, they will develop critical thinking skills. All of this goes, of course, without forgetting a good amount of fun!
At ISSHIN DOJO, everyone will have the opportunity of trying a free class of our regular activities. You are welcome to visit us and get to know our teachers and facilities.

Aikido & Team Building
Aikido is a Japanese martial art whose focus is placed on the peaceful resolution of a conflict and not on defeating an opponent.
The whole training is cooperative, in the sense that it is the duty of each practice partner to deal with the evolution of the other.
The goal of common progress is achieved through the exercise of attention in the present moment.
Aikido is therefore a particularly suitable discipline for actions with corporate work teams.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Through practical exercises, originating in the curriculum of Aikido, we will talk about notions such as Cooperation or Mutual Aid. We will see how an art of combat may serve as an instrument of personal and group valorisation, and we will pick some useful examples for the Companies’ day-to-day life and, more generally, in society.
For your team, we created the KYODO Program, particularly oriented to the business world.
Aikido & Team Building actions, with the duration and calendar that suits you.
