-Written by Senior Student Aman Brar
The Gi Yu Dayton Dojo’s Kancho, Sukh Sandhu, has trained in the art of Kobudo/ Jissen Koryu Bujutsu for over 27 years (as of 2015) achieving the rank of Godan (5th  Degree Black Belt) from Fumio Manaka (Kancho of the Jinenkan Organization). Sensei Sandhu has also attained a Nidan (2nd degree Black Belt) from Masaaki Hatsumi (Soke of the Bujinkan Organization). Sensei Sandhu holds the rank of Shodan 1st Degree Black Belt in Judo. In 2014 he received his 8th Degree Black Belt in Jissen Koryu Bujutsu under the Gi Yu Kyo Kai.
Mr. Sandhu is a licensed NRA firearms instructor and a certified NRA Range Safety Officer.  He regularly conducts CCW courses offered through the Giyu Dojo.
He has extensive experience in combat shooting and ground fighting. Sensei Sandhu has had the unique opportunity to live in various parts of the world as well as serve as a security consultant in both a public and private capacity. Sensei Sandhu has used his training in potentially dangerous real life situations. As a result, Sensei Sandhu is an excellent teacher and a powerful motivator who believes strongly in training at the fundamental level of Budo Taijutsu / Jujutsu. Without training in the fundamentals, Sensei Sandhu believes skill and growth in the art cannot occur.

Training Philosophy

Mr. Sandhu’s philosophy regarding martial art training is that it is an integrated, comprehensive part of a person’s lifestyle.  Training strengthens the body, mind, and spirit. This is not to be confused as a religious statement in either Eastern or Western ideology.
The spirit is the core beliefs, internal strength and fortitude of a human being.
Martial training forges and advances this spirit to cultivate a person to be a good person in their family and community.
