Welcome to the webpage of
BAN SEN JUKU is an international school for traditional Japanese martial culture with training facilities (DOJOS) in Belgium, France, Japan, Reunion Island, Spain, Tahiti, United Kingdom. In our school, we practise AIKIDO to seek the essence of all the traditional martial arts through AIKI, TAIJUTSU, ATEMI, TANTO, IAI, KEN, JO, etc. Teaching is in the traditional style, directly from the master. Beginners and black belts practise together, with and without weapons.

Practising with the sword (AIKI IAI, the art of drawing the sword instantaneously so as to win with the first movement) is especially important, as the sword is a symbolic weapon, the key to understanding AIKIDO.
AIKI IAI is unique to the Ban Sen Juku.

The school also organises special courses, ranging from classes for children right up to courses in GOSHIN or self-defence adapted to modern life, but seen from the perspective of eastern wisdom.

To provide an introduction to the background of traditional Japanese culture, and its roots in Eastern thought, the school has an extensive library of books and videos covering such topics as KI and KOBUDO (old traditional style martial arts). It organises occasional lectures and courses in zazen, misogi (purification), KI training, KI shiatsu massage, calligraphy, Japanese cooking, etc. These usually take place at weekends and are open to all. On request other activities can be organised.
