DojoThe dojo was located in a secluded corner of the Little Tokyo district of downtown Los Angeles. At the corner of Vignes and Second Streets is a private lane leading to artist loft studio #7, which was the Dojo. There is not much walk-by traffic nor are there major thoroughfares. It was very quiet and private, excellent for training.

The Dojo's entrance-way was a traditionally-designed Japanese style garden which lead to a handcrafted dojo built in the style of a 16th century samurai mansion. Most of its furnishings were antiques direct from Japan. Many of our guests from Japan declared that it was "more Japanese than Japan". Some considered it to be one of the most beautiful and most traditionally styled dojos in the world.
