Announcing the El Tajin, Veracruz Shugyo - April 23rd to April 26th Train in the Warrior Ways among the ancient pyramids and pristine beaches of Veracruz

Our Next Dojo

Training in different environments is a critical aspect of our training. It informs how we hold and change our structure, influencing how we move. Additionally we have sought to make the most beautiful places in the world our dojo - the place where we practice our ways. The aesthetic aspect of training trains a worldview which we believe to be imperative in becoming whole martial artists. About El Tajin: Located in the state of Veracruz, El Tajin was at its height from the early 9th to the early 13th century. It became the most important centre in north-east Mesoamerica after the fall of the Teotihuacan Empire. Its cultural influence extended all along the Gulf and penetrated into the Maya region and the high plateaux of central Mexico. Its architecture, which is unique in Mesoamerica, is characterized by elaborate carved reliefs on the columns and frieze. The 'Pyramid of the Niches', a masterpiece of ancient Mexican and American architecture, reveals the astronomical and symbolic significance of the buildings. El Tajin has survived as an outstanding example of the grandeur and importance of the pre-Hispanic cultures of Mexico. About the Dojos : Both the California dojo and Mexico City dojo will be in participation at the shugyo. About Outside Participants: We welcome all participants from any style to attend our shugyos. We only ask you check your ego at the door, and come in with an open mind. Your need to take care of ALL your food, stay and personal expenses. There are no fees for training with Sensei or the sempai's. For more information please contact Fernando Munoz Sensei in Mexico City or Allan Johnson Sempai in California or leave me a message here
