Our vision

Personal evolution through the practice of traditional martial arts.

About Us

We’ve been teaching traditional Japanese swordsmanship for more than 10 years in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. Dedicated to the practice of martial arts and the value it provides to one’s everyday life, our guiding principle is Jinsei Shinkendo – Life is Shinkendo.

The sword has to be more than a simple weapon; it has to be an answer to life's questions.”
