Shinkan-ryū Kenpõ allos you to learn iaido and bujutsu (Japanese martial arts) online. This art is a chance for a unique and comprehensive study of kobujutsu swordsmanship. We are not a school to nickel and dime you every other month with tests and gimmicks; our approach is serious and focused on building solid basics to develop more complex techniques and concepts as you progress. We do not sell iaido lessons as most online martial arts schools do. Our online iaido students come from different backgrounds and countries. They make good progress with dedication and discipline. Whether you study online or in person, you are part of the school community, not just a paying customer. We believe that learning the art of the sword takes effort, but it is not as daunting as it may seem. For more information on learning, check out our resources. Join us at Shinkan-ryū Kenpō for an in-depth and fulfilling experience.
There are many iaijutsu and kenjutsu forms within our curriculum that students train in. It is certainly possible to learn swordsmanship online; all you need is the desire to learn and put in the training time with a dedicated teacher.
Shinkan-ryū Kenpō does not sell or offer one-off (or extended) courses, certificates, or single lessons; rather, it is traditional learning as is typically done in most kobujutsu or koryū schools here in Japan. It is an intensive one-to-one student-teacher relationship based on diligent and honest teaching and learning for any diligent and committed person. It is a traditional school of swordsmanship. Learning is linear and in stages, whether online or in our physical dōjō.
To learn online, you must meet some requirements first.
