samurai sword shinkan ryuLearning Classical Swordsmanship

In Shinkan-ryū Kenpō we train in a well rounded and interesting style of Japanese sword combat of kenjutsu and iaijutsu. Although we branch out and allow training outside of Tokyo via online classes, we are not commercially selling classes on how to use a sword. We exist as a complete school founded in the classical koryū tradition in Japan.

Shinkan-ryū Kenpō's goal is to give the student a grounded and deep understanding of its kenjutsu and iaijutsu. When you join a school the goal should be to become a swordsman in that particular system and understand the sword combat of the respective school. This is what we strive for.

We offer a traditional, authentic and comprehensive iaijutsu and kenjutsu system to learn. Our instructor is experienced and patient, competently transmitting his knowledge and techniques to you. There is no being held back. In Shinkan-ryū Kenpō you progress as your abilities allow. The training is in-depth and can be enjoyed for a lifetime.

How Do I Join And Start To Learn The Sword Arts?

Before joining Shinkan-ryū Kenpō, a personal interview conducted with the head instructor and/or introduction from a current member is necessary. This is usually done through something like Skype. If you have any questions or you are interested in training then please fill out the form below to contact us and let us know a little about yourself.

The video above is a sample lesson made available to the public. More videos available on the video page.

How Does Learning & Training Work?

If you live in Tokyo,  you can come train with us directly. If you are not in Tokyo you can still join the school and  learn through our online classes and lessons. All students in and outside of Japan have access to appropriate teachings and lesson videos. We have well over one hundred training videos for students.

During the online learning process, the head instructor goes over the techniques with you. Students are always welcome to ask questions so they can get corrections. Learning takes place in online workshops or in one on one and/or supplemental videos etc. We have students in different countries who enjoy learning and make good progress through online study with our school.
Distance learning is not as hard as it seems.
