Hi I am Masahiro. I am a sword performer to express deep Japanese cultures and traditions. My passion is sharing the knowledge and experiences of Samurais, to be specific, its core spirits to the world. I have been practicing Samurai sword performance for 18 years and I have also done many Japanese martial arts as Karate, Aikido, Judo and Iaido.
WHAT TO EXPECT
In this experience you’ll shadow a published expert of Japanese martial arts and samurai sword performance, learning to spar and flourish like a pro. You’ll start by dressing in traditional Hakama pants and Kimono, learn key Japanese phrases and manner used when wielding a real Japanese sword. From grand swings to a final pose, you’ll learn how to discern fight styles, sword-acting as well as real sword techniques. This rich, cultural art is all about the fusion of beauty and fierce weaponry, as well as the authentic Japanese way to balance safety and power. Swing into a new routine while our host and staff help you film your own memento of your final performance. You can shoot with your own phone and show the world on your favorite social media, or keep the video as a special experience in Japan as a memory for yourself. Everyone is welcome on this one-of-a-kind experience, especially those who love samurai movies, drama and historic Japanese culture.
