Dojo Ahimsa is situated in Renon, Denpasar. The training is held by Sensei Kanno, who passes on the training given to him in Hombu Dojo.

The style is Aikikai, with emphasis on the importance of practicing good basic techniques, as they are the foundation of everything.

 
In addition, training is given under the Motto “A good Uke makes a good Tori”. These are two Japanese terms, meaning the person initiating the exercise (attack) - Uke - and the partner neutralising it, and immobilising or throwing the Uke - this is “Tori”. It is equally  important for both partners to be good, and perform properly; only this way can the techniques be exercised effectively, and safely.

The Dojo was named “Ahimsa”  on 17th August 2015, on Indonesian Independence day; Ahimsa is a term meaning 'not to injure' and 'compassion'.
The word is derived from the Sanskrit root ”Hiṃs ”– to strike;  “Hiṃsā” is injury or harm, ”A-hiṃsā” is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.
 Ahimsa is also referred to as non-violence, and it applies to all living beings - including all animals - according to many Indian religions.
