This is the official website of Ryushin Shouchi Ryu (柳心照智流). RSR is a school of Kobudo (ancient martial arts) specializing in iaijutsu (quick-draw sword art). Originating in a traditional swordsmanship that has been transmitted over hundreds of years, this style distills the wisdom, discipline, and determination of the generations of masters. This organization is dedicated to the practice and preservation of the skills that closely resemble the fighting techniques of the samurai, which fundamentally derive from conscious breathing and body movements that determine the speed and accuracy of sword movements.  Today there are several AFFILIATED DOJOS around the world (Asia, America, Canada and Europe) that study Ryushin Shouchi Ryu. If you are interested in learning and preserving these techniques please visit our MEMBERSHIP PAGE.
