Tenshinsho Jigen Ryu is a Japanese martial art founded in what is now Kagoshima, Japan in the 16th Century. The Tenshinsho Jigen Ryu Seibukan is located in Frederick, Maryland, and focuses on the sword arts of iaido (drawing and cutting in one motion) and kenjutsu (paired combative forms). The Seibukan maintains a close relationship with our teachers at the Tenshinsho Jigen Ryu Shobukan, our home dojo, located in Kasukabe, Japan. Ueno Kagenori Saikoushihan, the head instructor travels to the US frequently for teaching, holding seminars in Frederick, Maryland, Florida, North Carolina, and West Virginia.
