5.08 Introductory workshop

We invite all new enthusiasts who want to start their adventure with Katori Shinto-ryu to our dedicated introductory workshop!

Our introductory workshop is 3 hours devoted to explaining the basic aspects of training and kata, which will give you a much better start to practice. This is an opportunity to gain basic information and skills that will be invaluable during regular training.

Our priority is to provide you with solid foundations that will help you master the material necessary to practice the first form of kata in pairs.

We would also like to inform you that this is the last workshop of this type during the summer holidays.
