KENDO (剣道)

Kendo is a budo (martial way) that aims to forge the mind and body of practitioners and facilitate the development of character through continued keiko (practice).

剣道は、その道に励む者の心と体を鍛え、継続的な稽古により品性を磨くことを目指す武道です。

TANKENDO (短剣道)

Tankendo means the “Way of the Short Sword”. It is a budo that is based on traditional Japanese tanken (short sword) techniques.

短剣道は、日本の伝統的な短剣の心技に由来する武道です。

IAIDO (居合道)

The object of iaido is to learn to draw the sword in an instant to overcome an aggressor. It is a “Way” in which practitioners seek to train the mind and body through developing a spiritual appreciation of the relationship between life and death, movement and stillness.

居合道は、敵を制するために瞬時に鞘から刀剣を抜き放つことを主な稽古とする武道です。生と死、動と静の関係性に対する感謝の心を育むことにより、心身を鍛えることを目指す「手段」です。
