Japanese Lady Trial Class
The traditional Japanese martial art of the 'naginata,' favored by high-class women such as the wives of samurai and nobility
Founded in 1786 in Itami, a region known as the origin of refined sake, 'Syubukan' is a sacred place for the naginata that is famous in Japan. Based on the instructions by the 17th head of the old Tendo style house, master Kyoko Kimura, there are approximately 50 students training in the way of naginata.
Enjoy the full experience of the traditional naginata martial art of Japan in a historic dojo with an old-fashioned atmosphere. Other than the Basic Plan, where you try the Tendo style naginata in training clothes, there is also a Rhythm Naginata trial class as well.

A truly memorable experience, from the moment we stepped inside we were immersed in the 400 year old martial art. I really enjoyed wearing the clothes Hakama, and taking a lesson. Not strenuous but challenging. Thank you
It was great to learn about it! The ladies were so nice! I want to do it again.

Sensei was very good, super fun to learn about Martial Arts, and actually try it for real! I want to try again!
Training with the leader of Tendo-ryu.
I really liked the fact that it was all older women teachers for a martial art. It was refreshingly matriarchal.
