Hello everyone! After several years of my teacher recommending that I do so, I have finally come to a place where I am ready to open a dōjō, which I have named the Hachidori Dōjō. For me, the hummingbird is a representation of endurance, precision, and maneuverability. It is for this reason - and to honor my good friends at Swordguild Portland - that I have chosen this name. The dōjō offers training in both Japanese and European martial arts. Emphasis is placed on the integration of armed and unarmed methods in to a single unified process of attack and defense. I invite anyone who is interested to visit my website at www.hachidoridojo.com for more information. Novices and adepts are both welcome. All members of the dōjō (and all visitors to the dōjō) will be required to conduct themselves in a respectful and considerate manner. Thank you, and have a wonderful day!
