Samurai-Arts began some 50+ years ago as "Bushido Jujutsu based in Auckland.
Training with world renown Japanese and European instructors added to the organisations skill base between 1980 and 2010 and the study of samurai-swordsmanship became a fundamental discipline. We continue to teach semi-traditional Jujutsu and traditional Kenjutsu and have a dedicated student base who are pleased to assist with initiation of new students.
We look forward to welcoming new students who have an interest in traditional aspects of martial arts.
