About Us


The dojo has been a work in progress for its founders Chris Peterson and Jesse Bair since they started training together in 2000. While the founders have continually trained with one another, they were both teaching Shoshin Ryu Martial Arts in separate locations in the Boise and Meridian, Idaho area until the dojo opened in 2011. They are now glad to have one facility dedicated to the teaching of Shoshin Ryu. The dojo is a place where adults and children alike can come and learn about self-defense and personal growth.

Our classes are designed to challenge a range of skill levels from beginner to expert. We welcome any skill-level and are committed to helping you achieve your goals.
