The Isshinkan dojo will present the Kobudo Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu, a classical and traditional Japanese martial art recognized as intangible cultural heritage by the Ministry of Culture of Japan in 1960. The martial strategy is based above all on the Iai-jutsu – which is the art of drawing the sword – and its combat techniques studied in Tachi-jutsu (Ken-jutsu) be it with the Bokken, which is a wooden sword, or with the Kodachi – a short sword that is used alone or with the Bokken. The warrior technique also overlaps the Bo-jutsu which consists in the way of using the stick against the sword, the Naginata-jutsu or practice of the halberd, fearsome weapon on the battlefield, and the So-jutsu or the art of handling the spear.
