What we're about

This is a group for anyone who is interested in classical bujitsu or at least wants to know more about Japanese weapons like katana (a long sword), naginata (a glaive) and bo (a staff). All skill levels are welcome.

The Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū is a comprehensive martial arts school which includes many disciplines. Studying of it gradually reveals it sacred beauty and uniqueness and helps you to become physically and mentally stronger. I represent the mainline Shinbukan Dojo (Chiba Prefecture, Japan) of Otake Risuke Sensei and Otake Nobutoshi Sensei in Australia.

I started this group to meet other enthusiasts. Looking forward to exploring the outdoor and indoor activity with everybody.

First training is free. Weekly fee is $20.

To start, all what you need is a comfortable footwear and clothing which should be chosen according to the weather. The organiser has some spare inventory for beginners. If you have your equipment, you may bring it. Basically, we start from learning sword techniques with bokuto (a wooden sword), then move to iaito (a metal imitation sword) and finally to senken (a real sword). Also, we learn how to use bo (a wooden staff) and naginata (a glaive). Trainings with wood weapons can be attended outdoors; iaito trainings are indoor only. First training is free.
