|Seattle Samurai shares space with Namaste Yoga Studio|
Seattle Samurai Arts opened in North City on April 11, sharing space with Namaste Yoga Studio at 18021 15th Ave NE Shoreline 98155 (map).
By Joshua Ross, Seattle Samurai Arts
I teach a classically based Samurai Martial Art, or Bugei, called Nami Ryu Aiki Heiho.
Teachings include how to fight with a sword, draw a sword from the scabbard, and fight empty handed using jujutsu and strikes. Through this you can learn self defense for yourself and family as well as how to hold your own personal space and be confident.

One of my teaching goals is to help students, whether they are kids or adults, become curious about the world and cultivate a desire for knowledge and want to learn -- to reach for a place where learning for curiosity becomes the goal instead of a reward.
To this end Sato Bu Kan offers two curricula - one is a belt system and the other is a no belt system.

The goal of the belt system is to be a familiar starting point for students who want to be a black belt, but the goal is to get them curious and on a lifelong road to learning for the sake of curiosity.
Any person is welcome to come an learn from me. We accept students from 8 and up with some exceptions for younger kids if the interest is there.
