I've been learning from Sensei Braich for about 4-5 years and learned so much, still learning. Not only in martial arts but in life as well. I started learning the sword and now learning all martial arts the school offers. Love the way he and the instructors teach the classes. It's a real honor to be a part this dojo. It's another family. You will get so much out of the school.
Braich Sensei of the Three Rivers Dojo has trained me for the last 12 years. Discipline, integrity, honor, and legitimate technique in kenjutsu, aikijujutsu, and karate is what comes to mind. With real work on your part, you'll be trained to be strong enough and smart enough to not have to fight. If you are searching for a quick black belt for your ego, MMA or rolling around on a mat, this is NOT for you. If you want to learn who, what, where, how and why of when training was a matter of life or death, then proceed further. You WILL get back what you put in to this. As I have learned in the dojo: Everybody works. Nothing in life is free. All start at the bottom
Three Rivers is a Budokan and teaches more than one martial art. The focus is on sword, but how the sword techniques you learn can be used in all other weapon and empty hand techniques. Learning the sword greatly improves all your other martial arts.
Three Rivers Dojo teaches at a challenging and progressive pace. Students of all levels are taught proper techniques and etiquette. Great place to learn various martial arts skills and their origin.
