Shinkan Ryū Kenpō 真観流剣法 is a Koryu based sword system. This style of swordsmanship derives from the Edo period of Japan. Shinkan Ryū Kenpō focuses on the martial arts of the long and short sword. The primary curriculum is Kenjutsu (studied in paired forms called, kata) and Iaijutsu / iaido.
Our emphasis is on correct technique and understanding. An open mind and heart are valuable to learning the martial arts. Japanese budo is an interesting endeavor that will engage your mind and body. Although we are learning sword combat that stems from the fighting men of medieval Japan, the samurai, the value of learning is to help ourselves and society become a better place. The headquarters of Shinkan-ryū Kenpō is currently the Renshinkan 錬心館 in Tokyo, Japan.
