The Dojo

Now, Martial Artists in the Orange County, California have a place to enjoy practicing various styles of Japanese authentic Martial Arts in one single location, BUTOKUDEN. We have classes for all levels in Kendo, Karate, Naginata, Aikido, and Jodo. In the olden days in Japan, every major city had a place called BUTOKUDEN. This is where Martial Arts were taught to the community, and also a cultural gathering place, where children and young adults were taught the philosophy of Bushido through the Arts of Budo. We are located in the heart of Irvine, in Orange County.  BUTOKUDEN is 100% backed by E-BOGU.COM, Inc., a world leading Martial Arts equipment supplier, in order to promote Martial Arts to the community.Please come if for a free trial for any of our classes.
