30-Minute Japanese Sword Lesson
I will provide you with a thirty-minute lesson in the use of Japanese sword. This lesson does not require any particular physique, experience, or tools. If you own a bokken (wooden katana), it is recommended you bring it. You do not need a high-quality practice weapon at first. If you do not own a bokken I have enough to train a student or two.
The style we will be using is an amalgamation of ancient techniques and styles studied by samurai. This is not a sport but a system of combat designed to teach body mechanics and techniques applicable today. Not sure how learning how to fight with a sword can be used in the modern world? Find out!
Training & Qualifications
I have trained in Kenjutsu for approximately ten years and have been told by my instructors I am permitted to teach. My art did not award "belts", and neither do I. We were focused on useful, applicable, and practical martial arts training and were not beholden to a particular system of advancement.
I have trained in martial arts on and off since the age of four. I have trained in:
Kung Fu (Mantis)
Of these, I have the most experience in Kenpo, Uechi Ryu, Aikijujutsu, and Yanagi Ryu
Availability & Preferences
I am flexible about locations.
