Venue and Times for Training
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.
All classes are led by a mokuroku instructor of the late Ishida Hiroaki shihan, a menkyo-kaiden of Nishioka Tsuneo shihan.
Additionally, we're a dedicated weapons-based dojo committed to training 3 times per week and also have an expectation that accepted students should ideally be willing to undertake a similar commitment to attend the majority of classes, with a minimium requirement of 2 per week.
A non-committal probationary period applies to all new potential dojo students (Dojosei) before possible consideration and acceptance, and our dojo currently has a full membership limit of eight (8) persons only.
Regardless of previous martial arts experience or none, you're welcome to come and watch a class, with prior arrangements, as the starting point for training in Japanese koryu.
However, we do recommend that you begin, first and foremost, by edifying yourself on koryu as it isn't suitable for everyone given the strong emphasis on traditional Japanese cultural values, group structure and etiquette. The best place to start are the various articles on Koryu.com's website (click link here), and then if you're further interested please inquire with us.
Of course, if you're an overseas or interstate Shinto Muso-ryu practitioner visiting Brisbane you're very welcome to come and train with us, just contact us beforehand so we're able to make some arrangements to accommodate you.
Finally, if you wish to learn the kenjutsu of Niten Ichi-ryu (Itto, Kodachi & Nito), that is taught privately within our Dojo, then you must first be an accepted Dojosei.
