Makoto Wanomichi Sonkei Dojo

The Sonkei Dojo, a unique place in Brittany

In fact, the Sonkei Dojo is the personal dojo of Patrice Le Masson and Isadora Pointet. The dojo is located in southern Brittany, in the Pays d’Auray in Brec’h (between Vannes and Lorient) 20 minutes from the beaches, the Gulf of Morbihan and the Landes of Lanvaux). He offers uchi deshi formulas (which means “internal student”), regular internships and courses throughout the year.

In Brittany, at your own pace

Book for 2 to 7 days in uchi deshi by practicing 2 to 5 hours a day, participate in the evening class … Or come punctually for a three-hour course on a Sunday morning.

“Uchi Deshi” near Auray, Morbihan

We have designed our uchi deshi formula to allow you to experience a unique and intense moment. You are already improving your practice, but you are also recharging your batteries in a natural and relaxing environment.That’s why the formula may include accommodation and meals. Thus, this allows you to fully enjoy your stay. Four hours of practice will be offered to you during the day, but you can adapt your pace by favoring certain times only.

One seminar per month at Sonkei Dojo

In addition, if you want to practice occasionally at the Sonkei Dojo, Patrice Le Masson leads one workshop per month on Sunday morning. This allows many practitioners from different regions to know the Dojo and its students, but also to study Wanomichi more intensively.

Year-round courses at the dojo

The Sonkei Dojo is home to Aikido makoto brech club. Patrice Le Masson directs the classes which are organized so as to alternately practice bukiwaza (Jo, Bokken and Tanto) and taijutsu (bare hand techniques).
