J Kaikan Boyd is the dojo mother, an entrepreneur, a committed yogini, Certified Counselor, Security Professional, Self Defense Instructor under the supervision of Rory Miller, a Kenpo black belt, kickboxer and senior Martial Arts student under Boyd sensei, and creator of KANZANDO martial Arts.
She is also a MOTHER of an unschooled son, a wife, a daughter, and so much more…
Boyd sensei is a highly spirited and passionate student of LIFE. She is well known for her high standards and integrity, persistence and patience as an educator. She has worked extensively in various environments such as schools, prisons, bars, hotels, arenas and concerts which all have given her the experience needed to complement the training on the mats.
After many years of being in survival mode and walking the earth like an orphan in need of LOVE and connection, trauma and illness led her to further her studies in health and well-being, finding many community resources and providing an outstanding skills set.
J Kaikan also found her way to the Zenwest Buddhist Society where she met her zen teacher and took the Bodhisattva vows in the Rinsai ZEN tradition in a traditional marriage ceremony with her martial arts instructor and amazing HUMAN BEING Jason Rowan Boyd sensei. The rest is history and much of it is found in the books she has yet to write…
She began practicing YOGA with her best friend and AMAZING yogini LINDSAY KNAZAN, where she found her home on the mats again after many years of reflection on LIFE and violence. It is there on the mat that she found PEACE, and now practices and educates people in non dual psychotherapy and MARTIAL ARTS in the way it was intended.
BALANCE and INTEGRITY is her main FOCUS, and it is supported by a TEAM of experts that she will be more than happy to connect you with if necessary.
