The teacher of Yabusame, who has more than 20 years of experience, teaches

I am a teacher at the headquarters dojo of the All Japan Toyama-ryu Iaido Federation, and a teacher of Yabusame. This experience is neither entertainment nor street performance. I will teach you real swordsmanship and spirit. If you want to experience it in the right way or study the real thing, please join us.

You can experience the beginner's class in 3 fields of swordsmanship in one stop.

You can experience beginners in the three fields of Iai, Kendo (shooting sword), and sword pulling. Before the experience, give a lecture to deepen your understanding of swords. At Iai, you will learn how to pull out and put in a sword using a simulated sword, and at the shooting sword, you will practice the warping of Japanese swords and how to use ho with a wooden sword. After that, a mock match will be held with a shooting sword and a bamboo sword. In the sword pulling, you will experience the sharpness of a Japanese sword by actually slashing two rolled straws per person using a serious sword. You can take a photo at any time.

I will issue a seal

Those who have completed this experience will be issued a certificate of Toyama Ryu Bizenkai. Half is written in Japanese and half is written in English.
