Japanese Sword

Fishhawk Martial Arts Academy is unique in that we believe in and adhere to strict Japanese traditions. The Japanese sword has remained a constant in Samurai culture for hundreds of years. Students in Aikijujutsu who have shown proficiency and dedication will be invited to join our Saturday morning sword class. We offer non-Aikijujutsu students the opportunity to learn this age-old art as well.

Students who attend sword class learn  8 basic cuts, how to properly draw and retire the sword as well as study kata (a choreographed pattern of movements). Unlike Aikijujutsu, the sword requires strict attention to detail, requires dedication and nothing short of perfection. Practicing the sword can also be very meditative.  

Sword classes are every Saturday morning from 9 am to 10 am.
