Japanese Sword


During this course, you will be introduced to the Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu style of Japanese Sword Fighting, a traditional style of Kenjutsu and Iaijutsu. The modern martial art of Kendo is based on this and similar traditional styles. Practice involves working through a series of forms (kata)- both solo and with a partner- using wooden swords and, at an advanced level, live blades

This is a course for beginners.


In this course students can expect to learn correct cutting technique, the core principle of the style, and a selection of introductory kata.
