Masa Katsu Kensho Dojo

Classical Study for a Modern World


Masa Katsu Kensho Dojo of the Twin CItes and Masa Katsu Dojo of Ames, Iowa are both members of the Masa Katsu family. Born in Ames, Iowa the foundation of the Masa Katsu family was started by Garrett Riedemann Sensei. Riedemann Sensei a direct student of James Williams Sensei of the Dojo of The Four Winds in Encinitas, California has taught under guidance of Williams Sensei for the last twelve years. In the fall of 2013 Riedemann Sensei moved to the Twin CItes to open Masa Katsu Kensho Dojo and at this time Riedemann Sensei turned Masa Katsu Dojo over to Jeff Doran Sensei, Riedemann Senseis’ most senior instructor. Both Masa Katsu and Masa Katsu Kensho Dojo can be considered one family with two great locations. Welcome to the Masa Katsu Family!
