While visiting Japan I primarily stayed in Matsue city with family. Matsue is the capital of Shimane prefecture, a rural area in southern / western Japan. I met many wonderful martial artists, including Shigeyoshi Sensei who is accomplished in many martial arts (karate, Okinawan kobudo, iaido...). Iaido practitioners in Matsue are proud to say that their iaido style was practiced in Matsue castle, which is a national treasure due to it being one of the few samurai castles in Japan that is in its original form.
In order to help spread the samurai spirit and the Japanese spirit, Shigeyoshi Sensei would like to come to America. I am helping to plan his trip here and to accommodate him in the States, primarily in my region (NY/PA/NJ tristate area) and New York City. Though, I am sure Sensei would be willing to travel even more. This page is dedicated to Shigeyoshi Sensei's work and to the upcoming trip to America. I will be adding information about his knowledge and experience and details about seminars that we plan.
Of course, we will also be promoting his trip through e-mail and social media.
