The Kashimon Dojo facilitates traditional Karate practice under the auspices of the Kokusai Budoin-International Martial Arts Federation (IMAF) and the GIMA- HA Shotokan-Ryu Kyokai of Japan and GIMA-HA Americas. The current president of the Kokusai Budoin is Yasuhisa Tokugawa the great-grandson of the 15th and final Shogun of Japan, Tokugawa Yoshinobu (1837-1913).

​ ​Iaido: 
The Kashimon Dojo is a proponent of the practice  of Toyama Ryu Iaido with the Toyama Ryu Iaido Battodo Renmei (TIBDR) from Japan. The Kashimon Dojo is the first Dojo in the Americas to be distinguished as an Official branch of the Toyama Ryu Iai-Battodo Renmei. We also practice Batto-do as part of the Zen Nihon Batto-Do Renmei (ZNBDR).

The Kashimon Kyudojo was built to promote the practice of the traditional Japanese Art of Archery – Kyudo. We operate under the auspices of the  Florida Kyudo Kai,  American Kyudo Renmei and by extension the International Kyudo Federation of Japan. The Kashimon dojo has the distinction of being the only Kyudojo in Florida and the 4th traditional Kyudojo (5 Person) in the Americas.


As etiquette cross-pollinates with all Martial Arts, we also practice the traditional etiquette of Ogasawara-Ryu.  Ogasawara Ryu Rei-ho (etiquette) was taught to generations of Shoguns and It has become the foundation for all Budo etiquette--- It is known as the best etiquette style in Japan.
