Learn traditional Japanese swordsmanship.
Shinkan-ryū Kenpō 真観流剣法 teaches classical Japanese swordsmanship. The primary curriculum is Kenjutsu and Iaijutsu. It is through our study of this bujutsu that we hope to improve ourselves and the world around us.
Shinkan-ryū was established on the principles of correct bujutsu technique and understanding. An open mind and heart are also valuable to learning these martial arts. Japanese budō is an interesting and challenging endeavor that will engage your mind and body. Although we are learning sword combat that stems from the fighting men of pre-modern Japan, the samurai, the value of learning is to help ourselves and society become a better place. We, therefore, balance our training with historical relevance and spiritual discipline.
The headquarters of Shinkan-ryū Kenpō is the Renshinkan dōjō located in Nara, Japan. Let us know if you would like to visit.
If you have the interest to join through our distance learning, it is available to those outside of Japan. For information on online learning, please contact us.
