Learn the art of the Samurai

Saturday 9 September 2017

11am - 12pm

A demonstration of Japanese Sword art, Mugai Ryu

Come along and learn about the strikingly beautiful art of the Japanese sword, Mugai Ryu, during a demonstration at the perfect location of the Japanese Rest House, Batsford Arboretum. Mugai Ryu is an old, authentic martial art of the Samurai, founded in 1693.  Its founder was a Buddhist monk, and the style has a deep connection to Zen Buddhism.  Simple and direct, it has a plain beauty with a characteristic calmness and sharp attention.

The demonstration itself is free to watch, however the arboretum entrance fee applies. No need to book – just turn up and enjoy!
