Learn Classical Sword and Swordsmanship: Iaijutsu and Kenjutsu

In Shinkan-ryū Kenpō we train in a well rounded and interesting style of Japanese kenjutsu (sword combat). We are not a modern company trying to tell you classes on how to use a sword. There are enough of those types of websites and businesses. 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 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.

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

How Do I Start To Learn Sword?

Before joining Shinkan-ryū Kenpō, an interview with the head instructor and/or introduction from a current member is necessary.  If you have any questions or you are interested in training then please fill out the form below to contact us.


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 learn through our online workshops 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. During online learning, you are able to post your own videos and ask questions to get corrections. This happens 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 Shinkan Ryū Kenpō.
Distance learning is not as hard as it seems.

How Much Does It Cost?

Normal student tuition is paid monthly through Paypal for those not residing in Tokyo. Monthly tuition is $50.00 USD. If you want to learn but have financial hardships let us know as well. Do not be discouraged from following your dreams.
