Yotsume Dojo

School for Japanese Martial Arts and Healing Arts

The Yotsume Dojo and SOJHA (School of Japanese Healing Arts) are both my schools for Japanese martial arts and various bodywork arts such as Koho Anma, Sokushindo, Kotsuban Yumeiho (Seitai), and Anpuku. My school and private clinic are located in Fountain Hills, Arizona

Forging (by heating yourself in a fire) a clear road ahead is found! Let us never forget that the focal point in a Japanese Dojo is the “Kagami” mirror. We must train to keep our mirror clean so we can reflect well. This term can be broken also into three characters of Ka, Ga, and Mi. This is at the very “heart” of why we train!

We also believe that the absence of positive touch, like the absence of food and water, results in people developing a wide range of physical and psychological symptoms.

Anma Shugi 按摩手技

There are nine major categories of techniques within the art of Anma. Seven are original and two were added later on: (Kyosatsu Ho and Haaku Ho). Also, the Kyokute Ho methods are only found within the Japanese tradition of Anma and not in any other art form. Each section allows you to work the body in a uniquely different way. These nine sections create various effects that assist in the achievement of the goals of Anma Therapy. During an Anma massage all nine areas are utilized which creates a very complete full body therapy.
