Comprehensive SAMURAI course at a real dojo(Iai・Gekken・Test cutting)

Comprehensive SAMURAI course at a real dojo(Iai・Gekken・Test cutting)

The experiences I provide are not a form of entertainment or performance. There are many instances were groups or teachers take advantage of foreign visitors’ lack of knowledge about Japanese culture and provide them with a pseudo experience. I sincerely believe that this is wrong and teach only teach authentic Japanese kenjutsu (Swordsmanship) and spirit. For those who wish to have a proper experience, or want to study authentic kenjutsu, please come join one of my lessons. The Toyama school of swordsmanship was originally taught by the old Japanese army and was the last kenjutsu to be used in actual combat. It was developed by combining the specialties of various sword schools. Under normal circumstances, this type of thing would never have happened. You can experience it at the honbu dojo (headquarters). I will be pleased if you are able to tell the difference between real kenjutsu and the chanbara (stage fighting) you see on TV or in movies.
