Spearman and symbols for 'shobukan'.


    Shobukan is a small, non-commercial, independent martial arts group dedicated to the study of the Japanese martial arts, specifically, weapons and jujutsu systems. We currently have dojo in Maryland (USA) and Grafenwoehr (Germany).

    Primarily, we study the Kokoro Ryu system of budo (weapons, jujutsu and kempo) and often host guest instructors from other gendai and koryu budo.

    Additionally, we've received permission from Kiyama Sensei to start studying Shinto Hatakage Ryu Iaijutsu and will host the US instructor as often as possible.
