Samurai Experience

Iai-do is a very traditional martial art and has existed long before the days of the samurai in Japan.

He is the owner of “Muso Jikiden Eishinryu Iai Heiho” and is entrusted by the Soke with his dojo.

His performance and that of his students seem so smooth and easy, but it is profound and very difficult to execute. Please experience a part of Japanese culture by experiencing the secrets behind it and for what purpose it has been handed down for more than 1,000 years. 

He is looking forward to sharing the fruits of his more than 40 years of training. Not only for Japanese but also for foreign audiences.

What to Expect

After changing into special costumes inside the Big Arena, participants will hold a sword and receive an explanation of how to handle it. Photos may be taken freely during the experience.
