TENSHIN SHODEN KATORI SHINTO RYU


Immerse yourself in the traditional koryu practice of Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu.

Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu has influenced a number of other schools such as Yagyu Shinto ryu.

Part of JMAC, Keishinkan is the Australian branch of Sugino Dojo in Kawasaki, Japan. Katie Noad sensei began her training in 1986 under Yoshio Sugino shihan.

Jigoro Kano, the founder of Judo, introduced Sugino to Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu. Sugino's grounding in judo and aikido stood him in good stead to apply taijutsu principles in his Katori Shinto Ryu practice. He believed that "taijutsu forms the basis for everything. From there you can do anything, like naginata, bojutsu, ryoto or kotachi .... and when you use the sword or the bo the tip must be alive".


In his later days, Yoshio Sugino was classified as a national living treasure. Just before he passed away in 1998, his son Yukihiro took over as shihan and his grandson Kimihiko became dojocho.


Instructors Katie Noad and Noriko Shimada train regularly at Sugino dojo in Japan.
