Japanese swordfighting

Ryuseiken Battodo in Tucson newspaper


The Arizona Daily Star wrote a piece about the Ryuseiken Battodo classes in their article on "Outta-sight workouts". In fact, our own Maria Rice is on the cover of their Caliente lifestyle insert, plus more photos of other students (Ashley, Valerie and Peter) in the story on "samurai sword". Shihan John was interviewed as part of the class. The piece also mentions the UofA and CFHS classes too.

"Samurai Sword: Fitness is unavoidable with these classes" (it may require registration to read, but its free)

The Knighthawk Armoury builds some interesting realistic looking goshinken. They're expensive but they claim to be pretty durable (not yet tested by us).
