The US Marobashikai Shinkageryu Kenjutsu

Kenjutsu, the classical art of Japanese swordsmanship, literally means "sword-art" or "sword-technique”. The U.S. Marobashikai is the US chapter of the Shinkageryu Hyoho Marabashikai of Japan and was established during Grand Master Watanabe Tadashige's visit to the U.S. in September 2002. The Shinkageryu style is a school of Japanese Swordsmanship that was established in the 16th century by Kami-Izumi- Ise-no-Kami. Shinkageryu is based not just on techniques of the sword, but also on the a deep accompanying philosophy, especially that of founder Kami-Iizumi Iseno-Kami's concept of the way of Marobashi or leading a life in harmony with nature, freedom and livelihood.
