Kenjutsu is the umbrella term for all (ko-budō) schools of Japanese swordsmanship, in particular those that predate the Meiji Restoration. Some modern styles of kendo and iaido that were established in the 20th century also included modern forms of kenjutsu in their curriculum. Kenjutsu, which originated with the samurai class of feudal Japan, means "methods, techniques, and the art of the Japanese sword".
At EoSD Family Martial Arts, we teach a Kenjutsu curriculum drawn from two different schools - Togakure Ryu and Kukishinden Ryu. Students practice with wooden training swords before progressing to blunted steel.
Our Kenjutsu program also includes Battodo (sword drawing) and Mutto Dori (unarmed against sword).
