Aibukan Dojo Curriculum

At Aibukan Dojo we have adapted what many other styles do well into our own comprehensive system which we call Shin-Jin Aibudo. Our founder, Thomas Snowden, devoted over 50 years of his life to the practice of various martial arts and the development of the ever-evolving system. A few of the many arts from which we draw the aspects of our style are:

Given Snowden Sensei’s history in law enforcement and the military, we try to base our study on the most applicable techniques to handle real life threats. Aibukan Dojo has the added benefit of a diverse group of practitioners who bring their own life experience and expertise to the mat in the forms of doctors who can attest to the effectiveness of locks and strikes on the human body, police officers who have had success in apprehending violent criminals by applying Aibukan technique, and students with extensive experience in other martial arts who contribute to our collective body of knowledge with what each different style has to offer.
