The Sennin Foundation Center for Japanese Cultural Arts is a small traditional dojo and its walls are tastefully adorned with H. E. Davey Sensei's dynamic Japanese calligraphy. Located just across the bay from San Francisco, it is usually open throughout the week. It has been serving the communities of Albany, Berkeley, El Cerrito, Kensington, Oakland, Richmond, Martinez, San Pablo, Hercules, Pinole, El Sobrante, Emeryville, San Francisco, San Rafael, and Piedmont since 1981.

The Sennin Foundation Center's orientation is relatively noncommercial in approach, and group instruction is personalized, involving small numbers of serious students. Private lessons are also available, and all fees are reasonable, allowing individuals from a variety of income brackets the opportunity to practice. Davey Sensei and a staff of assistant instructors offer noncompetitive instruction in the traditional Japanese arts mentioned on this website. In their teaching of Japanese yoga & meditation, holistic healing arts, effective martial arts, and Asian fine arts, they carry on the authentic and time-honored traditions of Japan's past.

Visits are by appointment only. Please call, write, or send e-mail if you would like to drop by to pick up some free literature and/or talk to an instructor about our various programs. Everyone is welcome to visit.
