The Start of a Sword School
It's 2016 and I am officially opening the doors to Shinkan-ryū Kenpō. I wish to spread the good teachings and experience of Japanese iaijutsu and kenjutsu around the world. Everyone that wants to learn properly, should be able to enjoy the practical and interesting techniques of our bujutsu. I hope people will enjoy this endeavor with me.
