Zen is an assault on duality – life and death, self and other.

We train rigorously, using the traditional forms of Zen, martial arts and fine arts.

Our tools are our breath, our posture, our senses.

The results are the flesh and bones of compassion, available under all conditions.

Open to everyone.
