Shintaido of America is the principle organizing body for all groups within the United States and Canada.

Shintaido is a unique combination of martial arts and body movement that cultivates the spirit along with the mind and body created in Japan in the 1960’s. It has been called a moving meditation. In Japanese, shintaido means “new body way.” Shintaido’s forms exemplify openness and freedom. The movements of shintaido provide a new way of experiencing our relationship with ourselves, others, nature, and the spiritual world.
