Training

Training at the Adelaide Tatsumi-ryu Kenkyukai is held on Saturdays from 3-5pm in the Unley area. People who are interested in training are encouraged to contact us using the form here.

Before beginning training, it is recommended that students familiarise themselves with koryu. Koryu.com is an excellent resource and more sources of information can be found on the recommended reading page. For information specific to Tatsumi-ryu, the following articles provide the best introduction:

Keeley, Liam. ‘Kato Takashi: Reflections of the Tatsumi-ryu Headmaster’ in Koryu Bujutsu: Classical Warrior Traditions of Japan
