Taisoken (meaning ‘exercise sword’) is a new form of ‘warrior fitness’ - fitness training based on the traditional Japanese sword movements.
It has been formulated to help sculpt and work your whole body, strengthening your core and empowering the mind. Taisoken Sword fitness training is Cardiovascular and is suited to all levels of fitness.
Taisoken Sword Fitness has been developed and is led by Jeff Humm, who has been studying studying the use of the Japanese sword for over 35 years together with other traditional martial arts. He holds a Masters degree in Traditional Japanese Martial Arts and a 7th Dan in Japanese fencing (Kendo). In addition to being an International & National teacher for over 20 years in some of these Arts, recently he has used his considerable knowledge to develop a programme of physical training forms that would bring elements of classical sword training to a wider fitness aware public who are looking for more than just a gym workout.
Taisoken classes take place on most Sunday mornings and some Friday evenings from 2016 they are for ladies only.
