Our Training

The training in Meifu Shinkage Ryu (MSR) is primarily focusing on traditional Japanese throwing spikes and blades called Bo Shuriken. This is supplemented with the study of a weighted chain called a Fundo Kusari (we use a safe practice version). In addition, techniques from Kenjutsu and Iaijutsu are used to present to practitioners how shuriken and the katana were used in real combat.
