Evolving from the traditional Samurai swordsmanship of Feudal Japan. We are offering you the opportunity to discover another culture that is based on Medieval Japanese traditions and has been influenced by Zen ideas. Learn to manipulate a shinai (or bamboo sword) in real strikes against other people as well as non-contact traditional training by way of "Kata" or forms. General techniques of attack and defense practiced and armour is worn for more advanced training and for sparring and competition. Enrol if you dare!
