Meet Dalton - Our Latest I Am JMAC Profile!

Have you ever wanted to train in martial arts?
You're never too old - or too young - to start! 

One of the most important aspects of martial arts training is that it’s for everyone. It doesn’t matter what gender you are – and it certainly doesn’t matter how old you are – you can still benefit from training in karate, judo, jujutsu or iaido! Dalton Schotte, our latest I Am JMAC profile, is a perfect example. In 2014, at 7 years old, Dalton started training in Karate. Now, as a young man, he’s still training, still learning, and still growing as a person.

Japanese Jujutsu Classes in Ann Arbor

Japanese Jujutsu Classes in Ann Arbor, MI

If you’re looking for Japanese jujutsu in Ann Arbor, JMAC is your top choice. Suino-Sensei started JMAC in 2006 with the help of a handful of investors. The dojo quickly became a place for serious but joyful martial arts training. You can choose from several legitimate Japanese martial arts systems and train with a group of dedicated, safe, thoughtful people who work on improving themselves in every class.

Jujutsu is an amazing combination of physical skill and mental achievement. The techniques are organized around sets of principles. There are a lot of these movements, but they’re not unlimited, so you can master them over time and become very skilled at takedowns, throws, pins, chokes and submissions.

The best way to get a feel for jujutsu training at JMAC is to come to watch a class. If you like what you see, you can sign up for your two free intro lessons. You’ll learn the etiquette, safe falling skills, and the basic stepping and defensive movements. When you sign up for a trial membership, you’ll be prepared to make it through the class. From there on, it’s all uphill!

Japanese Jujutsu Classes in Ann Arbor - JMAC

Looking for a place to train in Japanese Jujutsu in Ann Arbor, MI?

Japanese Martial Arts Center has some of the best instructors & students to train with.

In 1988, armed with a master's degree in English and a few dollars, Nicklaus Suino set out for Tokyo. After a 14-hour flight, a 2-hour train ride, and a 20-minute ride in a friend’s Nissan, he arrived in time for dinner, a beer, and a long night’s sleep!

One of the first things he did was reach out to Sato Shizuya, the leader of a martial arts system called “Nihon Jujutsu.” The words mean “Japanese Self-Defense Art.” Suino and his longtime friend John Gage trained with Sato-Sensei at the Judo Club located within the American Embassy Housing Compound. They often attended classes three times a week, spending as long as 8-10 hours training on Saturdays before venturing into the nightlife district of Roppongi.
