Iaido friendship workshop- Intro to Ryushin Shouchi Ryu with Kunikazu Yahagi Sensei

Updated: Jan 7, 2020

Please join us for this iaido friendship workshop and an introduction to Ryushin Shouchi Ryu taught by the second soke – Kunikazu Yahagi Sensei. The workshop will include keiko sessions in Iaido (9-11am), RSR forms of kumitachi (paired bokken kata) (12:15-2:15pm), and a brunch provided by Bond Street Dojo.

Ryushin Shouchi Ryu (柳心照智流, RSR). RSR is a school of Kobudo (ancient martial arts) specializing in iaijutsu (quick-draw sword art). Originating in a traditional swordsmanship that has been transmitted over hundreds of years, this style distills the wisdom, discipline, and determination of the generations of masters.

We are pleased to welcome beginners and newcomers to train with Yahagi Sensei for an introduction to RSR. This event is open to non-RSR members. Please make sure you sign-up prior to the event.

Co-hosted by the Bond Street Dojo and sponsored by New York Budo Association.
