Enshin Itto-ryu Battojutsu
Enshin Itto-Ryu Battojutsu is a traditional Japanese sword art in which martial artists practice prearranged solo forms with realistic replicas, partnered application drills with wooden practice swords, and traditional bamboo test-cutting with sharp swords (respectively known as kata, kumitachi and tameshigiri).
The martial art focuses primarily effectively drawing and cutting with the sword beginning with the sword still in its sheath, differentiating it from other schools of swordsmanship.
The sword skills taught in Enshin Itto-Ryu Battojutsu have been passed down through generations of members from the prestigious Machida clan, who continue to develop and cultivate these skills to this day.
Students can expect to learn how to effectively attack and defend themselves with a sword at rest.
