Every martial artist or anyone who is interested in Japanese samurai culture should pay a visit to the laido dojo. This is a rare opportunity to learn firsthand about the history behind the katanas and armors, how to appreciate a real katana, and most importantly try cutting through the bamboo mat.
Even though it was an experience class, all skills taught were entirely based on real martial arts training, rather than showmanship.
This is definitely the highlight of my trip to Tokyo and I will definitely come back. Thank you!
