Kokoroshin Dojo is a jujutsu club located at 39 George St. E, Havelock, Ontario. We have kids and adults classes every Monday and Thursday evenings.
Chokushin Aiki-Jujutsu is a Gendai (modern eclectic) system of martial arts. The techniques found in Chokushin Aiki Jujutsu are of Japanese origin and similar to those taught in both older and newer systems of martial arts. The system has techniques common in both Daito Ryu Aiki-Jujutsu and modern Aikido and incorporates strikes along with hip, shoulder and sacrifice throws found in older systems of Jujutsu such as Kito ryu and Tenshinyo Ryu as well as modern Judo. Judo however differs from us as its techniques are taught mainly for sport and competition and many of the techniques have been modified from the way they were originally done.
I have recently left Paul Fox Senseiís organization to pursue a direction and approach to the system which I have I felt differed in philosophy and spiritual outlook. I feel the true spirit of martial arts is the spirit to survive and to achieve maximum damage when required with the least amount of effort, while I believe their direction is one of self defence but with minimum damage to neutralize an attacker.
Neither organization is wrong in its interpretation of the techniques but simply have different goals in mind. All members of the of my dojo have nothing but the up most respect and good will toward Paul Fox Senseiís Chokushin organization. All members of the Chokushin group are always welcome to train in my dojo.
Phil Anderson Sensei is a certified Menkyo in Chokushin Aiki-Jujutsu. The title of Menkyo is in reference to the second teaching license and is equivalent to the ranks of 6th-7th degree black belt in the kyu-dan ranking structure.
