Daitoryu aikijujutsu Takumakai European head dojo

Practice of the Takumakai style of Daito-ryu commenced in Finland during 1995 in Fudoshin dojo, which is the Takumakai’s head dojo in Europe. Finland’s two Takumakai dojos, located in Helsinki, remain the only ones in Europe. So far nowhere else in Europe can you learn real Daito-ryu. However, we are forming study groups in European countries.

Our goal is to provide high quality instruction to anyone with the enthusiasm to learn.

Are you interested in learning real Daito-ryu? Then come and practice with us!
We can also help you organise a Daito-ryu seminar in your location.

Getting started with Daito-ryu

We have two approaches for beginning members: beginner courses and the basic technique groups. If you have a background in other martial arts, we recommend the basic technique group. If not, the beginner course is a recommended way to introduce yourself to Daito-ryu.

Beginner course

The last beginner course began on January 27th, 2014. The next one is planned for the fall season, but not yet scheduled. Upcoming courses will be announced in our blog and our seuran Facebook page.

Basic technique groups

Practice in the basic technique groups is ongoing. The practice times are on Mondays 18-20 and starting in September, also on Thursdays 20:00-21:30.

If you have any questions or are interested in practicing Daito-ryu Takumakai, please contact us at:info@daitoryu.fi or jyrki.rytila@daitoryu.fi.
