General Information

 

 There are three full-time Black Belt Instructors of the AIBUDO system at the Cambridge City dojo.  They are SHIHAN Dennis Wissler SOKE (10th Dan), MASTER Steven Jordan SOKE-DAI (8th Dan),   MASTER Alan Campbell (5th Dan).  The Background of training includes BOJUKA RYU which utilized principles and applications of Chito Ryu Karate, Kodenkan Jujitsu, Han Moo Kwan Tae Kwan Do, Chinese Kempo, White Crane and Praying Mantis Kung Fu. AIBUDO also blends an eclectic combination of Grappling disciplines, such as Danzan Ryu Jujitsu, Pancrase/Greco, Sambo, Judo, and Free Style Wrestling.  Old world weapons forms of the Isshin Ryu system are our leader in external Weapons. Fighting techniques of American Freestyle Karate are also included in the system.  There are also minor principles of AIKIDO and major elements of Street Self-Defense.

 All students will be taught on a "one-to-one" basis.  The method of instruction will be in keeping with the ancient tradition of the Kodenkan which may be translated as "The school in which seniors transmit the tradition".  This following translation describes the Kodenkan method of instruction:

 

Senior students help teach junior students in the spirit which professor Okazaki declared was inherent in the work Kokua, "To help one another".

 

We are private and non-commercial, which allows for a more flexible training schedule.  In all cases, we attempt to work around schedules of personal and work.  We do though, encourage the placement of your martial arts training to be number 5 in your life.  One and two being God and Country.  Three and four being Family and Friends.  And then comes your martial arts training.  Other sports and activities as being number six and beyond.  Training in the martial arts requires both mental and physical dedication. To accomplish what the martial arts has to offer cannot be acquired with a “hit and miss” schedule of training. We do offer a “participant only” option whereas you may participate in any regularly scheduled training class without the ability to advance in belt grade or specialty class participation.  It would be more for the physical conditioning and general self defense driven individual.
