Martial arts systems often have lots of rules, traditions, and hierarchy, as well as sparring, gradings and competitions, which can be off-putting for many.

I wanted to offer a new way for females to train together, without combat or grades but with all the benefits, to feel great in body (with the physical training) and mind (with meditation). A ladies martial arts club, where women can train together and feel powerful and confident, just how they are.

And so… Heikō was born!

I hope you can be part of it.
