The intended purpose of this website is to provide information and resources for those interested in the art of Kenjutsu, in all its forms. Here we use a very broad brush stroke to include many lineages and/or dojos that teach Japanese sword training. This would include (but is not limited to): Kenjutsu, Iaijutsu, Iaido, Kendo, Naginatajutsu & Bizento.
This might be a good place to point out that there are many, many different forms and/or styles of Kenjutsu that range from extremely traditional to very informal. Everyone is wired differently, some people need the rigidity, ritual, and ceremony that come with the more traditional schools. Other people need a little less formal environment to learn. That being said, our goal is to include input from anyone who teaches any form of Kenjutsu.
Our goal is to provide a comprehensive dojo list and a central source for quality training weapons, videos, books and articles about Kenjutsu as well as interviews with leading instructors. We are constantly looking for quality content for this site, if you are a Kenjutsu instructor or know of one you would recommend to write an article or be interviewed, please feel free to send us an email from our contact form.
