What we will do

Chop up tatami mats in this private lesson with the sword-master descendant of a samurai, where you will learn about Japanese curved katana swords and how they are handled.

The lesson is taught by a 7th-level sword-master of the Hisui-style of Iai sword drawing, who has won the grand prize at sword competitions in Japan and around the world.

During the lesson, you will even get to wear the traditional style of kimono worn by the samurai, including the hakama kilt.

To partipate in this class, we only accept reservations for 2 participants or more.

This activity uses real swords, so it is very important that all participants follow the sword-master's instructions.

For safety reasons, some individuals (especially very active or inattentive children) may not be allowed to use the swords and participate in the mat cutting exercise.

This decision remains with the sword-master, and we cannot refund any individuals who are not allowed to use the swords. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
