Ten Shin Ichi Ryu Japanese martial arts

TSIR Training Options

Shiro Shintaku - Iaido TSIR training available in Maryland, Missouri and Colorado.

Ten Shin Ichi Ryu practitioners typically choose to focus on one main area of study. However, the main element emphasized in Ten Shin Ichi Ryu is the development of a non-aggressive mindset. Through this development, physical technique is executed more efficiently. Student's are exposed to various aspects of traditional Japanese arts in order to develop fully a student's depth of knowledge.

For example, students of Iaido (Japanese sword) might also study shodo (brush writing) to further understand focus, breathing and natural movement. Or they might take a class in Kendo to study quick footwork and sparring techniques. All aspects of training, hard and soft, physical and mental should be explored. It is only modern training that has altered this way and in most cases removed a full curriculum of study in the traditional arts.

In order for each individual to receive personal attention from Soshu Shintaku, Ten Shin Ichi Ryu™ class sizes are limited. Private lessons, small group classes and monthly seminars are offered and open to practitioners of all levels.

Youth Program (Ages 6-12)

Missouri students of TSIR Our Youth Program makes a difference in our students. Children learn the fundamentals of martial arts. These fundamentals teach physical fitness, coordination, self-confidence and discipline . . . all in a fun setting. Because kids learn how to follow directions, they can pay better attention in school, and participate better in classroom activities. Students are taught valuable skills that can be applied to other areas of their life. All of this is accomplished in a positive, safe, and fun environment that children anticipate each week.

Self-Confidence - It doesn't come naturally for many children, but rather is developed over a period of time. As a child accomplishes new goals, his or her confidence level increases. Children become more confident in their martial arts ability because they progress individually at their own pace and are not judged against others.
