“ Authentic Samurai Dojo Experience ”

Nice staff, knew English fairly well, and great teachers. It was fun being a samurai for a day and learning Kenbu (sword dancing) as well as the history of the samurai. They even taught me the folding fan, that was so cool. One of the lady instructors took me up on stage and shown me how they performed the Kenbu dance and guided me on how to do it with music. It was an unforgettable experience. Thank you so much.
