Yagyu Shinkage Ryu Heihou
Shinkage is a form of kenjutsu originating in the sixteenth century. Austin Aikikai is one of only a handful of dojos in the United States to provide training in this art from the traditional Yagyu Shinkage Ryu Heihou, with the opportunity to practice under the direct supervision of Yagyu Koichi Sensei when he comes to the US.
Classes are led by Damier Jasmek Sensei, who trains others with the permission of Yagyu Koichi Sensei.

“We use the word heihou (strategy) instead of kenjutsu (sword technique) because the school teaches not only techniques for killing but rather a way to see and approach any situation, even the way of ruling an entire country.”
