We are happy to announce that Toronto Kenjutsu will be offering classes twice a week starting in April.
Classes will now be held every Monday and every Wednesday at Kokoro Dojo, both nights at 8:30 pm.
We are thrilled that our classes have been popular enough to warrant such a step. This group started in 2008 with very modest objectives — only to provide a space for interested folks to practice Katori Shinto Ryu in the center of Toronto. With the support of senior instructors like Tong Sensei and Wiens Sensei of Tokumeikan, Toronto Kenjutsu has been able to grow and flourish, providing a chance for students of Japanese swordsmanship to practice this legendary art here in Toronto.
Katori Shinto Ryu is best practiced in small groups — only through direct communication can this subtle and demanding style be properly learned and understood. Each practitioner must have time to listen and absorb what they are learning. Opening a second evening of practice allows us to maintain our small class size and still accommodate more students.
We are very grateful to the tremendous folks who share our practice with us and have made this possible, and of course to Tong Sensei and Wiens Sensei whose support has made Toronto Kenjutsu possible in the first place. Thank you all, and we look forward to seeing you twice as often!
