Figuring out what weapons and training gear you’ll need for Japanese sword training can be difficult at first.
First, you’ve got gear with Japanese names that you may have never heard before.
Add in a bunch of uniform and weapon choices and you might end up confused.
After seeing more than one new student perplexed, we decided to add a page to the website that provides links and explanations for the training gear you’ll need for video Zoom classes, as well as in-person classes (at some point – we can’t wait to be able to train in person again!).
Be sure to check out our Training Gear page. I promise to update it often to provide you with new gear choices to round out your samurai training garb.
