Idaho Martial Arts , serving Eagle since 1997, is a locally owned school that offers instruction in traditional Japanese Karate Do and Aikido.
Washin Ryu Karate Do
Offers traditional Japanese martial arts at its highest level. Focused on respect, honor and self-development, Washin-ryu sets a path for increased mental strength and physical skill.
In our classes, students practice kata (form), prearranged situational self-defense techniques, kumite (sparring) and strength/flexibility drills, immersing themselves in the full range of traditional martial arts training.
Washin-ryu Karate-Do places an equal emphasis on the development of mind and body; so that one truly can become the master of the self.
“The ultimate aim of Karate lies not in victory nor defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants.” – Gichin Funakoshi
Aikido was created by Morihei Ueshiba (December, 14 1883 – April, 26 1969), referred to by some Aikido practitioners as O-sensei (“Great Teacher”). Ueshiba envisioned Aikido not only as the synthesis of his martial training, but also an expression of his personal philosophy of universal peace and reconciliation. During Ueshiba’s lifetime and continuing today, Aikido has evolved from the Aiki that Ueshiba studied into a wide variety of expressions by martial artists throughout the world. Aikido can be translated as “the way of harmonious spirit” where at its core the art teaches self-defense based on non-resistance. The art itself is actually rooted in Japanese samurai warrior tradition however it replaces the mainstream battle focused martial approach with one of self-awareness and compassion.
“The underlying origin of budo is the spirit of universal protection, nurturing and salvation. It is to give renewed energy to yourself and others.” – Morihei Ueshiba
