It is our goal to introduce Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto ryu to the world in a manner which preserves the secrecy and integrity of the ryu’s teaching but also shows that this Japanese official intangible cultural asset is very much alive.

It is one of the oldest martial arts in existence today but attracts more and more people from all walks of life, ages and nationalities. We thank Otake Risuke sensei for his dedication to the tradition and Otake Nobutoshi Shihan who was involved in this short movie.
