What Is Isshi Sōden?

In the Japanese martial arts the term isshi soden refers to how a certain set of ideas, methods, and secrets are passed to the next generation, with isshi soden regarding a one-to-one transmission between a teacher and the student, in the martial arts.

Isshi Soden refers to the fact that the martial arts transmission *must* be direct and in person, as there is no other way.

How can one capture and understand the feeling of the martial arts unless one has directly experienced it?

Located in Westchester New York, the Bujinkan Shinmyoken Dojo is a martial arts training group founded in 2005 with the aim of coming together as martial arts friends to study the Japanese martial art of Masaaki Hatsumi through the lessons of the Bujinkan dojo.

As friends (buyu) we come together to grow, learn, and share our individual potential in this wonderful martial art.

Questions, comments, feedback, and inquiries may be emailed to the group here: BujinkanShinmyoken@gmail.com.
