Message from the Representative

I had been acting as a professional martial artist and then opened Wajutsu Keishukai HEARTS in November 2010. I opened this gym based on my thoughts: “I want to expand the martial arts world” and “I want to raise awareness of martial arts among people”. You may imagine that it is difficult for you to start the martial arts and that you cannot do them easily. In reality, there may be a lot of people who hesitate to go to gym due to their scary feeling to the martial arts even though they are interested in them. However, I would like such people to start the martial arts. If you try the martial arts, you will enjoy them. If you actually move your body, you should like them more. I hope that Wajutsu Keishukai HEARTS will become a place to encourage people hesitating to start the martial arts to start them.
Of course, any person who is not interested in the martial arts is very welcome! Wajutsu Keishukai HEARTS has not only martial arts classes but also fitness classes. Let’s sweat together pleasantly and easily!
“Everything is OK if you enjoy the martial arts.” This is my concept and the concept of Wajutsu Keishukai HEARTS.
Becoming strong or competing each other is important. However, it is based on the feelings that you enjoy the martial arts and that you find interesting things about them.
Anyone can easily do the martial arts, so I wish to lower a barrier to entry into the martial arts.
Wajutsu Keishukai HEARTS is 5 minutes’ walk from Shinjuku Station. It has full-time instructors and the hours of freestyle practice are available so that you can move your body at any time. So, you can drop by the gym while commuting to or from work or school and easily sweat in the gym.
Let’s enjoy the martial arts to the full at Wajutsu Keishukai HEARTS!
