Kenjutsu is not a comprehensive study of Budo 武道 (Martial Way), but its focus is simple:
- Train in use of the katana (samurai sword) in a safe and effective way
- Develop the basic understanding of the katana and how to use it
- Support “back yard samurai” that have an interest in swords, by formalizing their training and providing a basic knowledge of the katana so that they can better enjoy their sword
Kenjutsu (Japanese Swordsmanship) enables students to become skilled with the katana quickly and safely. In the end, this course is all about empowering you.
Like most weapons, basic skills come fast but mastery happens over a lifetime.
