What do they say about us?

“I enjoyed practicing martial arts during 4 years under Xavier Duval’s supervision. His approach is really interesting because it combines the wide Japanese Jujutsu curriculum with the fundamentals of body use offered by the teachings of Aunkai. It’s definitely a rich and genuine training that you can expect after joining the Seishin Tanren Dojo.”

“Xavier Duval visited our dojo in Belgium end of January 2016. We didn’t think we would have a chance to meet him given the distance but fate allowed us to meet an exceptional and friendly person, with whom we had a great time. We are grateful for all he brought us and next time we will probably meet him in Hong Kong as we will make the effort to visit him.”

“We finished the year the best possible way with a Nihon Tai Jitsu initiation seminar led by Xavier Duval. Xavier allowed us to discover the depth of his art, bringing us a different vision of martial arts. In his teaching we found the same principles we have in Hankido: SOFTNESS, MASTERY, LISTENING. Thanks to Xavier for coming all the way from HK to share his knowledge with us”

“The Seishin Tanren Dojo under Xavier Sensei takes a holistic approach to the learning of Budo. The demonstrations of form are accompanied by explanations of the origins of the techniques, their place within the discipline, their relation to other similar techniques and the principles of stance, movement and body structure involved. This approach allows the student to develop the understanding of the tradition and the art that is necessary to make true progress in bujutsu”

“On behalf of the management of Aikido Shinju-Kai, I would like to thank you for the recently conducted workshop “Aunkai Bujutsu Introduction Workshop” on, 8th May 2016 at Aikido Shinju-Kai Headquarters. The workshop is indeed inspirational and brought along with it new perspectives and motivation, in the understanding of the application on how Aunkai can better aid in the development in Aikido. I believed all our students have truly enjoyed themselves, just as much as you might have enjoyed sharing with them!”

“The Seishin Tanren Dojo – Hong Kong provides an amazing opportunity to train in a wide variety of martial arts. You will re-learn to move your body through the practise of a thrifty use of raw strength while understanding the importance of core strength and applying it to a vigorous Aunkai, a redoubtable Nihon Tai Jitsu, and a fine and sharp Kishinkai Aikido.
You will not only get the real chance to practice under Xavier who is an avid researcher of the Bujutsu, but Xavier is also an enabler, he will broaden your experience further as he brings experts from around the globe several times a year. Don’t waste any more time, join us!”
