Takeda Ryu Nakamura Ha
We practice the Takeda Ryu Nakamura Ha (the Nakamura style of the Takeda school).
It is the Japanese Martial Art of the Samurai, full of respect and tradition.
Takeda Budo (Martial Arts) is a 'Sobudo' (comprehensive Martial Arts).
It is composed of different disciplines, the main disciplines are:
- without weapon:
- with weapon:
At a high level, all the disciplines become one to fight like a Samurai.
