Training Opportunities

The art of Jiki Shinkage-ryu heiho in the United States is due to the efforts of Dr. David Hall, who leads the Hobyokan in Rockville, MD. Dr. Hall () studied under Namiki Yasushi, Yagyu Nobuharu, and Donn Draeger while living in Japan. Several Hobyokan students now are geographically dispersed and have private training groups, each offering instruction in Jiki Shinkage-ryu heiho. These dojo have a formal interview and evaluation process for new students. Prospective students should take time to become familiar with the available literature on classical Japanese martial arts (koryu) as a prerequisite for study:

☳ The Seikoukan Dojo is led by David Sims (), who teaches Jiki Shinkage-ryu near Raleigh, North Carolina.

☳ The Gassankan is led by Mark Raugas, who teaches Jiki Shinkage-ryu in Seattle, Washington. He may be reached at the email address below or at gassankan.org.
