The Shinbukan Dojo Amsterdam offers classes in the samurai arts shinkendo (swordsmanship), aikido (unarmed) and bojutsu (long staff). Students can choose to train in one or both the arts, based on traditional and practical techniques that you can directly integrate in and apply to all areas of your life.
Shinkendo classes for Beginners
These take place on Mondays (18h30 to 19h30) after the Junior class.
This is a beginners focused class.
Junior (11-15yrs) Shinkendo classes
Alongside physical training you will also learn about the Samurai’s philosophies and attitude, and how they mentally prepared themselves to be strong in battle.
Team work, respect and discipline are already an integral part of our Dojo, and we look forward to adding new members to our international community.
