Welcome to Federation Geido Tao Chi Kihon

Our federation is founded with our passion for traditional martial arts. Chi Ryu Aiki-Jitsu, Okinawa Kobudo and Iaido are the main focus in our daily training routine.

At our Federion, we do not only teach martial arts, we strive to create a community where we can share our passion for tradition, etiquettes and elegance.

Feel free to get in contact with the Honbu Dojo or one of our affiliated clubs in Europe to get further information.

Sometimes students expect the sensei to make them better in their techniques or to “deliver” the techniques. They train them for a while until they decide for themselves that it is time to get/ask for the next technique. It is more like a teacher – customer – relationship rather than a sensei – student – relationship. But that’s not how the study of martial arts works, regardless of whatever art you study. Students adapting to the teaching routines of a dojo rather than the sensei adapting to the student is the most distinctive difference between a traditional dojo and a modern school of martial arts.
