Isshin Dojo at Shimotsuki Village.

The Isshin Dojo (一心道場 Isshin Dōjō?) is a kenjutsu school, a school of Japanese swordsmanship. Its owner is Koushirou, who is a skilled swordsman and father of the deceased Kuina. It is the place where Zoro trained his Santoryu and in the anime is the only dojo Zoro did not take down the sign of.

It is revealed that 12 years before the current storyline, the town was visited by Monkey D. Dragon and the revolutionaries, and that the dojo assisted them with supplies for the injured residents of the Gray Terminal.
