Bushin Ryu classes at the Budo Shingikan inspire you to reach higher than you think possible. Our dynamic instructors guide you through the intricacy and beauty of Japanese martial tradition, and in the process you will find yourself drawn into the learning experience along with your fellow students. Dare to be great!
The Bushin Ryu curriculum requires you to demonstrate a wide range of martial technique in a variety of situations. You will find yourself challenged as you come to understand that true martial arts have little to do with punching and kicking. The subtle nature of internal structure combined with both gross and fine motor skill development requires you to devote your powers of concentration fully to what you are learning.
Bushin Ryu training is very different from a kickboxing workout. Training in the traditional Japanese martial arts involves both physical and mental dimensions. You will also find that working collaboratively with a partner changes the entire dynamic of the learning experience. Developing the skill of connecting to another person in the process of learning immerses students in a truly holistic training experience.
We view safety as the number one priority in martial arts training. In Bushin Ryu, we spend a great deal of time learning how to safely move and connect, whether one is in the role of "attacker" or "defender". The occasional bump or bruise is inevitable in martial training, but it is essential that students and instructors maintain a high degree of "situational awareness".
If training isn't fun, you won't last very long. That's why we make every class a fun experience! The Budo Shingikan wins "Best Dojo of the Year" in Mesa each year because it truly is the most enjoyable place to train.
Our Dojo is led by Sensei Dedeuc D'Antonoli. Sensei started his path in the study of martial arts in 1992 in Kenpo Karate in Carmichael California. Since that time Sensei has never encountered a form of Japanese Martial Arts he hasn't enjoyed training in and learning about. He has studied many styles of martial arts, and in general has a deep passion for Japanese culture and tradition.
He is a full time martial artist and has dedicated his life to the pursuit of learning and teaching others. Many martial arts school instructors teach martial arts as a part time job, or hobby, and many no longer pursue their own studies. Sensei continues to study and teach full-time. Sensei took up full-time teaching duties in 2006. He was awarded a Senior Teaching License, the highest level teaching license awarded by his instructor.
Sensei has been teaching martial arts to children for many years, both in the United States and in Mexico. His goal is to ensure that classes get kids moving and teach them valuable skills both in terms of self-defense and life outside the dojo. But above all, he believes classes should be fun!
Sensei is recognized by the International Martial Arts Council and has been inducted into The United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame twice in recognition for his contributions to the international martial arts community.
