International Shinkendo Federation

ISF

The International Shinkendo Federation is an organization dedicated to teaching authentic Japanese swordsmanship. Shinkendo emphasizes traditional and effective swordsmanship, which, with serious training, leads to both practical ability as well as an understanding of classical martial arts. It is steeped in the traditions of the Samurai, such as Heiho (strategy), physical training, and proper Bushido etiquette and philosophy (Scott, 1998).
