A bit of our Dojo History

The Raining Spirit Dojo was officially founded on 1st May 2009, in Melbourne, Australia, by Sensei Sylph Dominic Hawkins. Sensei Hawkins taught classes under the Hoshin Jutsu Australia Pacific umbrella organisation from May 2009 to Sept 2013. He first began studying martial arts with Hoshin Jutsu Aus Pacific in Sydney in the year 2000/2001. Sensei Hawkins created the 12-Phase Hoshinden Jutaijutsu style now taught at The Raining Spirit Dojo since 2013, as an attempt to use martial art concepts to continue exploring the manifestation of different physical phenomena and the bio-mechanics of correct leverage, angles of force and balance control.
