Shinai Day

Thursday 25th April; All day

Every lesson all day will be shinai training! Shinai is an awesome way to drill reflexes, discipline, focus, awareness and the ability to stay sharp and relaxed knowing that your partner will try to hit you with a glorified cane. Fun aside,Shinai is an incredible tool to augment your training whether you want to improve your goshin or you kihon.

Check out the video for an idea of what we will be doing…

I look forward to seeing you on the mat!


Celebrate what you want to see more of.”
