Shoshinkan Shinkendo Dojo is the only authorized branch of the International Shinkendo Federation located in Massachusetts and the New England States.
Shinkendo offers us a way to pursue truth with full sincerity and deep commitment, and to improve ourselves spiritually and physically. This should be one’s constant goal in life. Obata Kaiso teaches us, “Jin-Sei Shinkendo,” or “Life is Shinkendo.” For more on Shinkendo, please visit the Shinkendo Hombu Dojo website.
Only Shinkendo involves study of each of the five important aspects of swordsmanship: Suburi, Battoho, Tanrengata, Tachiuchi, and Tameshigiri. This allows for one to view the techniques from a larger perspective and pursue them deeply.
