Tenshin Shôden Katori Shintô Ryū is the oldest extant Japanese martial art. The techniques are traditionally trained in the form of kata-bujutsu.

In the Katsujinken-dojo we train: Kenjutsu (swordfighting), Iaijutsu (sword drawing), Bôjutsu (staff), Naginatajutsu (glaive), Ryôtô (two swords), Kodachi (short sword) en Yari (spear).
