Learn Self-Defense While Discovering Authentic Japanese Martial Arts

Welcome To Budo Shingikan:
Home Of Bushin Ryu Aiki Bujutsu

Our martial art is more than simply an efficient method of self-defense. It is a form of Budo – a “martial way”. Bushin Ryu is a Japanese martial art performed by blending with the motion of the attacker rather than opposing it head-on.
  Self-Defense, Self Discipline & Self Development  
Bushido (Way of the Warrior)
"The code of Bushido in which the Samurai lived by is the same code we live by. Our teachings come from the aids given to us through years of war and human conflict. They show us a better way of being using the best types of conflict resolution skills, and living lives of service to others, leading by example.

This is what a modern samurai is! It's living our fullest lives through the enlightening lessons of the past and finding value in being this type of person."

– Dedeuc D`Antonoli, Founder of Bushin Ryu Aiki Bujutsu

Bushin Ryu Is Peaceful. Yet Extremely Powerful.
Bushin Ryu Aiki Bujutsu is a unique martial art that integrates body, mind and spirit. Age makes no difference.

It is graceful and powerful, it emphasizes peace and harmony over aggression and violence.
Self-Defense Against Weapons Including Knives.
In Bushin Ryu, you'll learn how to defend yourself against a variety of weapons, including knives and blunt objects. You'll also work with wooden practice swords (called a bokken), and short staffs (called jo)...

All in all it's a unique, fun, and versatile experience.
Our Martial System is designed to create positive changes in our lives and the lives of those around us. We strive to inspire more than the virtues in martial arts, we strive to render the aggressive aspects of martial arts unnecessary.


Bushin Ryu classes will inspire you to reach higher than you think possible. Our dynamic instructors guide you through the intricacy and beauty of Japanese martial tradition – and in the process you will find yourself drawn into the learning experience along with your fellow students.


The Bushin Ryu curriculum requires you to demonstrate a wide range of martial technique in a variety of situations. You will find yourself challenged as you come to understand that true martial arts has little to do with punching and kicking. The subtle nature of internal structure combined with both gross and fine motor skill development requires you to devote your powers of concentration fully to what you are learning.


Bushin Ryu training is very different from a kickboxing workout. Training in the traditional Japanese martial arts involves both physical and mental dimensions. You will also find that working collaboratively with a partner changes the entire dynamic of the learning experience. Developing the skill of connecting to another person in the process of learning immerses students in a truly holistic training experience.

Safe Enviroment!

We view safety as the number one priority in martial arts training. In Bushin Ryu, we spend a great deal of time learning how to safely move and connect, whether one is in the role of “attacker” or “defender”. The occasional bump or bruise is inevitable in martial training, but it is essential that students and instructors maintain a high degree of “situational awareness”.

Our Classes Are Fun!

If training isn’t fun, you won’t last very long! We make every class a fun experience! The Budo Shingikan wins “Best Dojo of the Year” in Mesa each year because it truly is the most enjoyable place to train.

The Budo Shingikan Dojo is not just a place to learn martial arts it is a place to build self-confidence, pride, and strength. My son, after yet another move (we are a military family), was having trouble adjusting. I immediately felt welcome as the team answered all my questions fully and quickly. Mrs. Shannon, called me as well prior to his first lesson. The amount of patience these instructors have with the students is amazing.

I could not be more happier. Before I found Budo Shingikan School of Japanese Martial Arts I spent the better part of 3 months searching for a place to start my martial arts training and get back into shape. Five years later, after joining Budo Shingikan, I am 50 years old and in the best shape of my life. Most importantly, I've learned how to defend myself in the process. Kaiso D'Antonoli is a great mentor and instructor. Honestly, you just have to come see for yourself.

The experience that my son has gained in his martial arts training is amazing. The Budo Shingikan family is truly a family. Everyone is welcoming and loves training together. My son has been involved with this dojo for just about a year. He has learned so much and dedicated a project at school to his training at Budo Shingikan.
