ABOUT

This is lifetime experience. You can find yourself in here. I have extracted the essentials from samurai culture. It’s not only for the battle but also for peace in mindfulness. Now it’s time to get them.

After dressing up for kimono, you’ll relax with matcha tea ceremony. Zen Mediation leads you calm mind for the sword training. Cutting the bamboo target by real sword will brings special feelings, it’s not enough to explain by words. After all training, you will be a witness for special sword performance that you can watch nowhere except here.

I am a teacher and performer who uses Japanese swords to express the heart of ancient Japanese tradition, something that cannot be found in museums or TV and web. My Passion is spreading the real spirits of samurai to the world.
