Yahagi Sensei  Seminar (Sept 30 – Oct 1, 2023) – Yahagi is a sword specialist and the Headmaster of Ryushin Shouchi-Ryu, a school of kobudo (ancient martial arts) specializing in iaijutsu (quick-draw sword art) and tai kumitachi (partner bokken training).  We have trained with Yahagi Sensei in Japan on multiple occasions and this will be his fifth trip to Oregon.

At Pacific Rim, our lineage in Iaido is connected directly to Yahagi Sensei.  Our head instructor, Martyn Sensei has trained under Yahagi Sensei since 2013, is certified to teach and promote in Ryushin Shouchi Ryu, and is currenly the International Director for the organization.  Martyn Sensei travels twice a year to Japan to continue his own training with Yahagi Sensei.

Don’t miss this semianr!  Yahagi Sensei does not travel outside of Japan often to provide direct instruction and no prior experience with sword arts required!
