KENDO

Kendo (剣道) 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).

JUKENDO

Jukendo (銃剣道) is a modern budo (martial way) that can be traced back to the traditional Japanese schools of sōjutsu (spearmanship).

TANKENDO

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

IAIDO

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
