Chiryaku Dojo Belgium vzw is a non-profit organisation that consists of 3 clubs:

• Chiryaku Dojo (training for adults in Tienen - Main Dojo)
• Shiraha Dojo (training for youth in Tienen - Branch Dojo)
• Tetsukabuto Dojo (training for adults in Hoegaarden - Branch Dojo)

In our clubs you learn all aspects of effective self-defense on physical and mental level: evade, strike, kick, choke, throw, escape, roll, block, lock, groundfighting, training in casual clothes with several attackers, dealing with weapons, showing respect, being assertive, improvising, practising patience and moreover learning never to give up!

As in every traditional Japanese martial art you also learn with us general etiquette, history, anatomy, medical knowledge and spiritual refinement. Competition is not being practised in our clubs because the target is to learn to survive (without any restrictions) in every situation and not to score points or win trophies!

All our instructors have several years experience in martial arts and trained under Grandmaster Tanemura Tsunehisa Shoto Sensei. Our target audience varies from the common man or woman to police-officers, security-agents, professional bodyguards, prison-guards, military officers, ... .

By training martial arts you gain more insight, self-confidence, willpower, endurance, discipline, self-control, ... . You sharpen the mind and learn to become a complete human being. You also learn Japanese culture, you become more flexible and your condition will improve! Everybody (boys and girls, men and women) is welcome in our Dojo. In today's society there is a need, more than ever before, on self-defense and self-protection!

Tanemura Soke (family-head) is a worldwide respected Grandmaster in different martial arts schools and styles and has more than 50 years experience in teaching police-officers, FBI and CIA agents, SWAT teams, SAS and other elite-team instructors.

He has opened for us the gate to learn Ninpo, Ju-Jutsu, Koryu Karate, Goshinjutsu and Chugoku Kenpo and to enter the spiritual world. I am very proud to be a personal student from him!
