Characteristics of Akatsuki Dojo

Goal of Akatsuki Dojo's Representative, Akio Murayama

Continuing the effort to challenge oneself and becoming a strong individual who is kind and considerate to others.

Through martial arts, I aim to become a compassionate person not only physically, but also mentally stronger.

I strive every day to ensure that our students come to the dojo and leave feeling fulfilled and energized, knowing that they made the right choice by coming. It’s my greatest happiness to see our students satisfied.

I believe that enjoying oneself at the dojo becomes the motivation for coming, and it contributes to becoming energized and healthy. Let’s become stronger, full of energy, and healthy while having fun together.

On the Staff Introduction page (link), I have shared the inspiration behind my fascination with martial arts. I encourage you to take a look.
