Kogen Dojo

Founded in 2017, the essence of Kogen Dojo is in its name. An amalgam of the Japanese characters 古 (ko), meaning ancient or classical, and 現 (gen), meaning present or modern, Kogen Dojo is a place where both classical and modern martial and holistic arts are practiced and taught.

Kogen Dojo is the manifestation of an ideal.  It is a place where a diverse group of practitioners and arts come together with mutual respect for each other.  Practitioners at Kogen Dojo are encouraged to cross-practice in one or more arts, as a sort of Choose Your Own Adventure in martial and holistic arts.

Kogen Dojo offers:

  • GRACIE JIU-JITSU for self defense and competition
  • MUAY THAI for competition and fitness
  • TAIKYOKU BUDO aikido/jujutsu for personal development
  • TAIKYOKU KIKO movement practice for internal strength
  • YOGA for balance and flexibility
  • MEDITATION for focus and clarity
