Our curriculum encompasses a wide range of iaijutsu and kenjutsu forms. Learning swordsmanship online is entirely feasible with the right commitment and guidance. Our school does not offer single courses, certificates, or individual lessons. Instead, we adhere to traditional kobujutsu and koryū practices, fostering a deep, one-to-one student-teacher relationship. This method ensures diligent and honest teaching and learning, suited for dedicated and committed individuals. Learning is structured in stages, whether you train online or at our physical dōjō.
