The Kindai Inazuma Ryu Tai Jutsu program is our core martial arts system.  Kindai means “modern,” “Inazuma” means lightning, “Ryu,” means system or style, and “Tai Jutsu, stands for body science.  Study in this system requires an adult student to commit to at least 2 classes per week.  The students will be exposed to different stretching exercises that will increase their flexibility and muscle tone.  They will be put through a cardio workout, which will help them burn calories and lose weight.  They will learn both physical and cognitive concepts of the martial arts through strategies and tactics.  Students will also be exposed to the history and philosophy, and may also study the spirituality of the system if the students so desire.  In these classes, we focus on practical self-defense, for street situations in today’s world, primarily focusing on close quarter combat.  We utilize pressure points, joint manipulations, nerve centers, off-balancing techniques, punches,  kicks, throws, ground fighting techniques, as well as knife, gun, and club defensive techniques.

Leominster Martial Arts_Aikido students_Katana
Adult Saigo Ha Daito Ryu Aiki Jutsu/Aikido

Minimum 2 Classes Per Week

The Aikido martial arts system is on the other side of the spectrum as it relates to the Tai Jutsu system.  It is a more passive martial art.  Aikido is primarily the art of  redirecting an opponent’s energy, be it cognitive or physical.  Due to its off-balancing techniques, the practitioner learns how to fall correctly without sustaining injury.  Aikido emphasizes learning how to receive a throw because a majority of the aikido techniques have throws contained in them.  There are elements in this system to reduce the fear of falling that uniquely builds confidence.  If an assailant were to attack an Aikido practitioner, the Aikido student would move off to the side to avoid getting struck, redirect the assailant’s energy to ward off the attack, get the assailant into a lock technique, and either choose to immobilize the assailant, without harm or the student could utilize a throw technique to project the assailant away.  The student studying Aikido will also study the history and philosophy of this system.

Adult Martial Arts Kumiuchi Ryu Jiu Jutsu- By Invitation only

Minimum 2 Classes Per Week

There is a time honored tradition within the martial arts to pay respect to the Martial Arts mentor who sacrificed time and attention to nurture, guide, and instruct another to rise to the title of Soke by continuing the mentor’s martial art’s system.  As such, I, Soke LeClair pay hommage to my mentor, Soke Rubiano’s system- Kumiuchi Ryu Jiu Jutsu.  Students at our dojo begin their martial arts journey with my Kindai system and when the practitioner achieves the brown belt level, that student has all the principles and concepts needed to transfer into the Kumiuchi Ryu system. Therefore, the student may receive an invitation to commence a dual study of the two systems simultaneously.  The Jiu and Tai Jutsu systems are a more aggressive type of martial art, using a wide variety of blocks, strikes, chokes, and throws in combination with other defensive maneuvers.
