We have made big changes recently.  First, we have re-named the school to "The Dojo of Nashville".  However, we are actually two different schools in one space.  Bushinkan Dojo still has classes teaching aikido under the flagship of Aikido Schools of Ueshiba with Mitsugi Saotome Shihan.  We also have Traditional Karate Nashville teaching Shotokan Karate under the World Traditional Karate Organization, chief instructor Steve Ubl.

Second we have moved into a new location at 2403 Nolensville Pike, Suite 102, Nashville, TN 37211.  The new dojo is twice as big as the old space.  Be on the lookout for upcoming seminars for both Karate and Aikido.

Come by and visit any time.

Our dojo was honored to have hosted Steven Fasen Sensei of Shindai dojo the weekend of June 14, 15, and 16, 2013.  The weekend focused on future black belt testing.  Since the class was small, all the students had one on one, hands on, training with Sensei himself. This type of training is invaluable.  Thank you to everyone who helped put this together and to those who came to participate and watch the class.

On February 9, 2013, our dojo was reduced by one student, namely, Kevin Sparkman Sensei.  Sparkman Sensei taught his last class at the dojo before an audience of his students and supporting friends.  The class was enjoyed by everyone.  Afterwards a plaque was presented thanking Sensei for his dedication to the art and to this school.  He had been a part of this dojo since 1989.  Sparkman Sensei decided to retire from teaching at the dojo for personal reasons.  Though he no longer teaches, his presence will always be felt.

Bushin Dojo will now accept students between the ages of 7 and 13 years for their children's class. Classes will not only focus on martial technique using aikido principles, but will also focus on mental discipline, self motivation, self confidence, self-esteem, etiquette and manners.  Martial arts training is also a good way for children to also learn coordination and balance which helps prevent injuries should they also participate in sports.  The confidence and self discipline they develop will help with school work and may improve grades.  Most of all, children who participate in martial arts can learn to defend themselves against school bullying and child predators.  Anyone interested in our program please contact Janay at janay@dojoofnashville.com or by cell phone at 615.601.9303.
