Venues and Times for Training
Kobudokai Australia incorporating Sumera Budo-juku Australia Dojo.
Kobudokai Australia hold full public liability and professional indemnity insurance through SportsCover Australia.
We operate on a non-commercial (non-profit) basis with membership/insurance and training fee schedules that are intended to cover costs only, like venue hire and liability insurance.
classes are led by a mokuroku practitioner approved by Ishida Hiroaki sensei (JPN), a menkyo-kaiden of Nishioka Tsuneo shihan.
Shinto Muso-ryu training consists of formal pre-arranged partnered forms (kata), so there's no free sparring or competition.
Currently all potential new dojo members, without exception, will need to attend a set 6 week course (once a week, every Sunday).
These courses provide an introduction to the basic sword and stick techniques of the ryugi as well as some of the ettiquete of a traditional Japanese cultural art, without any need for a commitment from either side.
They also allow us to get to know you, and you us, so we can determine your potential suitability wthin the group if you do become interested in becoming a member. At the same time, out of consideration, the courses also minimise the disruption to our regular members ongoing training and commitments.
Of course, you're welcome to come and watch a class first with a prior arrangement. Regardless of previous martial arts experience or none, or a even a member of another SMR ryuha, everyone is welcome to attend these courses.
Course class sizes are limited to four (4) participants maximum (minimum age 18) with all equipment supplied and the cost is $48 per course.
