The Arts & The Way

We offer instruction in the Martial Arts and Ways of Japan.  Our curriculum includes the study of Kenjutsu (swordsmanship), Aikijutsu (unarmed techniques) and related disciplines.  Our classes adhere to traditional standards of study and decorum, providing a unique experience in the modern era of martial arts.

The Chicago Budōkai was established in 1981, on Chicago’s near north side.  We are part of a larger network of independent dōjō established in 1969 and united by the arts we study.  Our classes are held in Woodridge, Illinois and Madison, Wisconsin.
