As a new Mesa resident, I wanted to find a dojo where I could train. So I conducted a Google search on the art of Aikijujustu wondering if there were any dojos near me. I found the Budo Shingikan School of Martial Arts. So I went by to see the school.

Admittedly, the complex where the school is situated seemed a bit dead since there didn't seem to be any active businesses on that particular Saturday. It can be a bit hard to find though during the day until you see the banner outside. At night, there's a neon sign lit.

Although it was a bit hard to find since I'm not originally from the area, upon entering and receiving the warm reception by the front desk and a man who turned out to be the head instructor, I felt very comfortable. Choosing a new school where to train can be quite nerve-wracking and confrontational. After a short tour though, the head Instructor explained that they were offering a week trial where I would be able to experience some of their training. After taking the week, I ended up signing up.

Although there some might have an issue with one instructor handling a class of kids, it doesn't seem any different than any other school teacher with an elementary school class. However, in the case of this dojo, higher ranking students do assist Ms. Shannon, the children's instructor.

No place or situation is perfect, but this place is definitely on another level than of the other "dojos" I went to see. As I said, I looked for a place to train before finding this school. But, I quickly became tired of "McDojos." You know what I mean, those places that seem to spring up overnight offering whatever is cool at the time. Right now, it's MMA. It's pay your fees and you get belts thrown at you (or your kids). By the way, if you want your kid to learn discipline and confidence because they can beat up another kid a la MMA style, then this is definitely NOT your school. This dojo focuses on "blending" with your opponent and using his/her negative energy against them in SELF-DEFENSE, with the option of NOT permanently damaging another person. If learning to hurt others for no reason is your thing, then again this is NOT your place.

In conclusion, the only thing I can suggest is to check the dojo out yourself. Only you will know what works for you.

I could not be more happier. Before I found Budo Shingikan School of Japanese Martial Arts I spent the better part of 3 months searching for a place to start my martial arts training and get back into shape. One year later, after joining Budo Shingikan, I am 47 years old and in the best shape of my life. Most importantly, I've learned how to defend myself in the process. Sensei DAntonoli is a great mentor and instructor. Honestly, you just have to come see for yourself.

Since I became a student of Budo Shingikan School of Japanese Martial Arts almost a year ago, it has become a second home for me. I've met some of the most amazing people and made great friends within the Budo Shingikan family. I couldn't be more amazed at what I've accomplished! I am back in shape and feeling great. I've had lots of fun learning and helping teach lower ranks and encouraging those around me. The kids classes are a blast. Not only do I get to help them, I get to watch them grow to be more confident and respectful.

I could go on but, don't just take my word for it... you have to try for yourself.

D'Antonoli Sensei is the most dedicated, talented and encouraging teacher. He is always accessible and answers all our questions. I hope he knows how much we appreciate his dedication & passion he has for the students.

Wow don't use this place for martial arts. Not nice people, and they will gauge you for your money. I wont be returning, and I certainly wouldn't let my kids go here. What a waste of money.

Yikes- avoid this place like the plague! Not nice people. Wasted my money and time and my child did not learn anything. Money hungry owners, for sure.

This has been the BEST experience in martial arts for our son that we have ever found. He loves attending his classes, dedicated a personal project at school to his training and documented his growth and understanding. The staff and sensei at Budo Shingikan are great teachers of Aikido. We love them and how they have grown to be part of our family in this last year.

Budo Shingikan means The School for Authentic Martial Arts. They do what they say. This is the traditional way. This is Budo. And unlike some places you get promoted when you earn it. Aikido is one of the few martial arts that don??t have an attack move. It is defensive. The more aggressive your attacker is ? the more his energy is used against him. I??m 61 and with the help of Darrel Sensei and all the fine members I do this several times a week plus we have a class where weapons are part of the same Aikido training ?? not a separate affair. This is not like other martial arts schools ?? this is truly a Dojo and that is the best way to train I??ve done them both. I trust Darrel Sensei and the instructors and students not only in my training but also in the training of Aikido to my son. We are part of the family and it was the best part of fate that I found this Dojo.

DON'T SIGN ON THE DOTTED LINE! Classes are way to big, and the owners only care about money. While I took my child to classes where he didn't learn anything, I started receiving emails almost DAILY from this place asking for CASH DONATIONS, ON TOP of the over $120 a month tuition I was already paying. My child got lost in the shuffle while they were busy counting their money. Really pathetic place. If I could give it zero stars, I would.

The Budo Shingikan School of Japanese Martial Arts is a Dojo much like I had gone to when I started my Martial Arts Experience in 1965. This Dojo is a very traditional Japanese style school where the student is the apprentice and the Instructors are the Craftsman. But it is more than just the Kancho (Head of the School) or His Instructor's (Sensei) that instructs the new students ... it is done as a community where all of the higher students help the newer students. This makes all the training more personal and gives even more family / camaraderie feel to the training. Their Dojo is very reasonably priced because of this extended family atmosphere of passing on new skills to each member instead of a money making business. After all - to do Akido or Jujitsu properly and safely one has to have a lot of two way trust going. \n\nKancho D'Antonoli has a wonderful calm peaceful approach to Akido and his dynamic easy going nature sets the proper stage. Sensei Berghain takes the student safely into the realm of explosive JiuJitsu into that confidence area early on with his smooth manners and open dynamics. The weapon classes merge and identify the cross training of the weapon with the weaponless forms of Martial Arts bring the harmony of the two instead of teaching like they are separate skills. All of the Instructors have that calm patience and skills to train new techniques, no matter how complex, in a natural easy to learn manner. Each Instructor cross learns from each other's expertise and brings a vast repertoire of knowledge to the mat and there are Instructors that rotate in from other schools - the commonality of which is their passionate, friendly manner of breaking things down to make Martial Arts training a gentle controlled art.\nI had no reservations in enrolling my 14yr old son and he is loving the experience! He started as a 7yr old in an ATA Taekwondo school and is a 3rd Degree Black Belt in that style. But here at this Dojo he has a whole new experience with real world type of skills in a traditional Family style Japanese School of Martial Arts. He returns excited from class every session.

I found this dojo a few weeks before I left on deployment with the military last March. I enrolled both my children and have started studying there myself since my return. The owners there basically took my family in as their own while I was gone. Even on FB, when I was over seas they were incredibly supportive of both myself and my family. The focus is on learning, not just the physical but everything a martial art should be. I've trained off and on in various styles over the years but ended up moving or life took me another direction, but here, at this dojo, I've found a home.

Awful place for children. My child left this place in tears after class. 20+ students and only 1! instructor. After touring other Dojos around Mesa, I discovered the other places have at least 3 instructors for a class that size. Way overcrowded and totally unorganized. I started getting emails in my inbox almost DAILY from them asking for cash donations on top of the tuition I was already paying.

Other Dojos in Mesa charge around the same price, but have better, smaller classes and aren't always begging for extra money. These people don't care about their students - only about their money.

This matrial arts school is one of the best I have ever found!!! Ive studied martial arts now on and off for years, and after getting out of the military, I have been looking for a school that not only teaches disipline, but also is traditional and has NO CONTRACT. This school is just that. They dont need a contract because once you enter the dojo, and participate in even just one class, you will come back wanting more. Because the classes are not only informative, they are fun and exciting!!! I am very greatful I finally found a school that fits all my catagories, and then some!!!!

Love this place! Kids want to go 5 days a week! I have seen a huge change in my son. He has been doing his home work all on his own, it used to be such a fight. He has something to look forward to, he has goals, and you should see his face when the instructor says good job.\n Its like a family there, everyone is very friendly. Seems like I've known them forever.Truly we were blessed to have found this place. Finding people who really care about the kids, and take that extra time to listen to them in this busy world is hard to find. \n I'm even thinking I could try this, they make it look so fun. Maybe this can be hubby and I's new date nite!

Very involved and Family Oriented School. Greatly appreciate a place where we can take our child to learn fundamentals with patience and perserverance. My Son is at the beginning of something that will be with him for a lifetime. We are very happy that we found this school and we can have this experience to grow with. Definately recommend!!!

Budo Shingikan is a wonderful family atmosphere. My two boys attend several times a week. The instructors are very caring and want each child to have the best possible experience. They are learning the importance of having a good attitude, self control and respect.

I have been training at the Budo Shingikan for a few months now and I can say that I am very impressed! I have trained for periods of time in other martial arts in other cities. I have never come across a teacher that combines the skill and passion of Sensei D'Antonoli. Aikido is a challenging art to learn, and Sensei as well as the other teachers make it fascinating and just tough enough to push we students to perform at our best, but not so tough as to make it discouraging. I've been at the latter kind of dojo before.\nSensei D'antonoli also strikes a great balance between the spiritual aspects of the art, and the more hardcore, practical elements that will get you through a street altercation. Both are very important in the study of Aikido.\nIf you are interested in really learning traditional Japanese martial arts, this is the place to go.

I have known Sensei D'Antonoli for several years. Having trained under him in Aikido and beside him in other arts, I can say that the Martial Arts are his true Passion. When he instructs it is with authority, but when training in an art that is new to him he possesses the humility to maintain his role as a student without presenting the

WOW!!!! WOW!!! WOW!!! This Dojo is amazing. I have been a part of several martial arts schools over the years and am absolutely thrilled with the Budo Shingikan. There is no Kata (pre-arranged forms), its all hands on with a partner, even the kids program, which means you learn to feel what its like to be grabbed or have a punch thrown at you, not to mention you feel when you are doing the technique correctly because your partner falls down. There is also so much stress put onto learning true martial arts. Most schools in the area want you to sign a contract, join a Black Belt Club, and so on...because its all geared towards making money as a business. This Dojo is run just like Japanese Dojo in which martial arts come first and nothing is compromised for monetary gain. The staff is well versed and amazing. They are friendly and yet strong leaders at the same time. They are humble and incredibly knowledgable. You wont find a better martial arts school in the Phoenix Metro area. They offer 5 different martial art practices + weapons work, with Sensei's (teachers) in each art and its all given to the students at a lower price point than the ""industry standard"" for martial arts schools and training. I couldnt possibly give a higher recommendation to anyone!!!!!!!

Kancho Dedeuc D'Antonoli has built a wonderful program. The Dojo is very family friendly. Classes are offered everyday to fit your families schedule! All of the teachers are so great with the kids and very knowledgeable. \nMy 5 year old is learning so much. He has struggled with behavioral problems, and these classes are helping him to learn to listen, focus, and work on his self discipline. I highly recommend Budo Shingikan School of Japanese Martial Arts!

I started up classes at the dojo back in May and ever since that day it has been a second home to me, I would bleed for the place and all the people in it. I have made some amazing friends that I will never forget, opportunities have come up in other aspects of my life through my fellow students, and everyone there has the mindset of being a family. The atmosphere in the dojo is breath-taking, martial artists all around you and every sensei would gladly assist you with anything that you want to know. \n\nI take the Aiki Ninjutsu class twice a week and I never want to do anything else, I count down the days until I get to go back to class to train and spend time with all the fantastic people there. Students of the dojo all help each other and help out around the dojo itself all the time as well. \n\nand the deal is EPIC, one monthly payment with no contract (cheaper than nearly every single martial art school I have looked at in the valley) and you get to take ANY classes you want. ANY. You could be there 6 days a week if you had the time, learn all the different arts and also the weaponry class, and Japanese language! All included! Family packs make it cheaper for entire familys who come in as well. So if a family is looking to get the kids into something awesome and want to spend quality time together each and every week, you save there too!\n\nI honestly don't know what I would do without the classes each week, one of the best things that I have ever done in my life. I hope to see more and more new faces join our family really soon!\n\nI look forward to training with you soon!\n\nAiki Ninjutsu student of the Budo Shinkikan Dojo\n\n-Josh Wakefield

This school of Japanese Martial Arts in high quality. The focus is self defense, not learning how to fight. This approach empowers kids and provides confidence. The instructors encourage self-control and teach how the mind controls the body. The instructors clearly have a wealth of knowledge on the subject of Japanese Marital Arts, and it is obvious that the owner has studied the art for a long time. We highly recommend this school for your family.

First I was just looking for a local martial arts studio that was convenient and close to home for my son. Budo Shingikan School is that and so much more! My son has chosen the martial art of Aikido and enjoys the training. With that, he also has the opportunity to learn other Japanese martial arts that are taught at the dojo. The training is thorough and comprehensive. The instructors are professional and on top of their game. They have become family and we have met many friends with others who have started the journey with Budo Shingikan.\n\n

First I was just looking for a local martial arts studio that was convenient and close to home for my son. Budo Shingikan School is that and so much more! My son has chosen the martial art of Aikido and enjoys the training. With that, he also has the opportunity to learn other Japanese martial arts that are taught at the dojo. The training is thorough and comprehensive. The instructors are professional and on top of their game. They have become family and we have met many friends with others who have started the journey with Budo Shingikan.\n\n

We just walked into Budo Shingikan Dojo to show our 4 year old daughter what karate looks like. She immediately felt comfortable and jumped right in. Two months later, my husband and I are about to start Aikido too!\r\n\r\nThe classes are well paced and keep my daughter on her toes. Both Darrell Sensei and Shannon have made class comfortable for our little one and no one can ask for more. Shannon has really gone well beyond what I would have expected in working with my daughter.\r\n\r\nA great group of people with knowledge and skills to share...love it!!

The Budo Shingikan Dojo has something for the entire family. I was originally looking for a martial arts school for myself, but after meeting the instructors and talking with some of the students I signed up my whole family! The instructors are top notch! I now have 4 traditional arts to train in. The wife, who swore to never train in martial arts, loves the Women's Self Defense Class can't wait for the yoga and pilates classes to start! My son,after being injured in an MMA school (that I shall not mention), enjoys training in the Jujutsu and Hapkido. My daughter never misses the Ninjutsu and Aikido classes. As you can see we have very different tastes in what we want as far as training, but Budo Shingikan has it all! The best part is that it's all offered at a very affordable price-definitely the best bang for the buck!

Our family has been searching for a ""real"" Dojo to become part of the family and we finally found it at Budo Shingikan. Darrell Sensi is wonderful. The level of teaching and instruction is the best bar none. \nShannon is a true pleasure to deal with, she really makes one feel like they belong and makes sure all is as it should be. We could not be happier with our finding this Dojo and the folks who make it so special! \n\nBudo Shingikan is the BEST!
