Dokan is an association (non-profit organization) that develops and structures the practice and teaching of traditional Aikido and associated martial arts in the area of Rennes (France). Our website presents and regroups Dojos of the DENTO IWAMA RYU AIKIDO France group based on Rennes, Chartres de Bretagne and Bruz. Our practice is directly related to Japan and the “Iwama Shin Shin Aiki Shurenkai” organization of Master SAITO Hitohira whose teaching we follow.
Beyond the martial practice, we aim to develop close relations between our discipline and the practitioners and structures proposing the study of Japanese Budo and Japanese culture. We build many projects throughout the year and organize regular exchanges with Japan.
You will find below an interview of SAITO Hitohira Sensei realized in Japan in May 2018. This interview presents the different aspects of our practice.
