DaJoGen School of Mixed Martial Arts, located at Zanshin Dojo in Salem, Oregon, is dedicated to the teaching of Martial Arts with the hope that students will one day become Zanshin instructors themselves and continue the tradition.
Zanshin is a state-of-the art Martal Arts school incorporating traditional teaching methods with cutting edge equipment. A 1500 square foot uninterrupted mat sits atop a custom-designed subfloor for throwing and Jujitsu training complemented by a striking area with the most heavy punching bags in the state. A full exercise area features weights, treadmill, elliptical, and more. Fingerprint biometric door locks grant access, computerized climate controls maintain perfect training conditions, and a 45 inch flatscreen plays demonstration videos and student recordings for self-evaluation. The rugged utility of leather kick bags and oak training weapons balances the refined aspects of marble countertops and full-length mirrors.
