Description

This is a 90-minute session in a dojo. We have a history of 420 years in Tokyo. Our ancestors served the Tokugawa Shogunate government for 265 years as "jikisan hatamoto" (upper class samurai who could get direct orders from shuguns). At our dojo, you will learn to draw, sheathe and wield a Katana (Samurai sword), which symbolizes the samurai spirit. The samurai were well-trained, highly skilled warriors who served their lords with absolute loyalty. They lived their life according to the ethic code of the Bushido, where it states how samurai warriors should act in their personal and professional lives. You will gain insight into the samurai philosophy, along with getting to know the use of katana. You will also change into a simple kimono and a hakama to get into the samurai spirit. Below is the schedule that we plan to follow on the day. 1. Meditation 2. Demonstration by a Shihan (expert) 3. Change outfit 4. Bo shuriken experience (throwing stars) . 5.
