This group is like a family we train together and help each other learn . It is definitely hands on so you know when class is done that you have something to work with . I am 57 and have been training here for about 14 years . So much to learn . The instructors have been to Japan several times to earn there rank and learn more . We train with traditional weapons as well as rope and hand to hand where you get to actual knock your attacker down using natural movement as well as joint locks . I never thought about sword work but it ties right into our regular training very well and these guys are master swords men . I encourage all who want a realistic approach to defense to come train .
