Shinkan-ryū kenpō is a sword-based martial art in the classical Japanese swordsmanship tradition. It holds high the ideals of correct technique and principles of mind, sword, and body. Learning Iaido, a type of Japanese budō, is an interesting and challenging endeavor that will engage you physically and mentally.
Although we are learning sword combat that stems from the fighting men (samurai) of pre-modern Japan, the value of learning is to help ourselves and society become a better place. We, therefore, balance our training with the historical relevance of sword fighting 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 membership to learn iaido online, it is available to those outside of Japan. For information on online learning, please contact us.
