Decker Sensei

The Cork Energy Arts Centre was founded by Decker Sensei, a student of internal martial arts for over 40 years, as a Centre for the study of Energy Arts in Cork City.  After living in the United States for 35 years, Decker Sensei returned to Europe in 2009.  He is an authentic lineage teacher/practitioner  in all disciplines he is sharing:  Aikido, T’ai Chi Ch’uan, Reiki and Hanmi Buddhism.

The Cork Energy Arts Centre is a holistic learning Centre offering affordable ongoing evening classes, full-day and weekend workshops, and advanced training in Aikido, T’ai Chi Ch’uan, Hanmi Buddhism and Reiki.  The Cork Energy Arts Center combines Aikido Cork, Cork Open Centre and the Cork Tai Chi Studio into one Centre for the studies of Internal Arts.


In response to COVID-19 we regret to report the dojo will remain temporarily closed until the Government eases COVID-19 restrictions and reopens Ireland’s society and economy. We hope everyone is continuing to stay safe, healthy, and weathering the unprecedented challenges we are facing.  Please visit our Class Schedule page for the latest updates.
