Description

Ninjas and samurai have long been a part of what makes Japanese culture so unique. In fact, the samurai code of honor has informed the rules of conduct for much of Japan’s society. Immerse yourself in these traditions as you unleash your own inner warrior with this exciting sword-fight lesson.

This program involves 3 parts: demonstration, instruction, and performance. Begin by first watching 3 samurai and ninjas show off their impeccable technique. Next, spend the majority of the experience learning a special kind of sword-fighting known as tate. This theatrical method was once reserved only for professional stage and film actors. It focuses on unique expressions, demeanor, gestures, etiquette, and attentiveness—and is widely considered one of the most beautiful styles of combat. Combine this with the moral principle of dou for a fully immersive experience in the Japanese culture of discipline and grace. Following your lesson, you have the chance to perform your own stage scene while wearing a traditional kimono, ninja costume, or samurai armor.

This incredible event can be enjoyed in a shared group of up to 12, or in a private group of up to 4 for a personalized experience. Those who choose to participate in the shared group also have the opportunity to throw a rubber ninja star known as a shuriken. Hit the center of the target and take home a special prize.
