Ottawa Kenjutsu teaches classical Japanese swordsmanship with a focus on safety, precision, and the preservation of traditional kenjutsu.
Classes provide instruction on the use of the katana (Japanese sword) and other traditional Japanese weapons. Practice focuses on how to perform kenjutsu movement and sword techniques with accuracy, speed and power, and how to connect the sword with the body and mind. Kata (prearranged patterns of movement practiced either solo or with partners) are used to train theories and principles as well as teach proper distance and timing.
We are now offering a second weekly kenjutsu class every Monday from 8:00-9:30 p.m! Current and prospective students are welcome to attend either or both classes offered each Monday and Friday.
