Hello, everyone !
I'm the master and founder of our Samurai Art - BUGAKU 武楽.
It's the dynamic performing arts; the cultural fusion of Japanese traditional martial arts and Japanese traditional performing arts like Noh-theatre that Samurai practiced and loved.

"Great Performance! This is the Art!"
- by Guccio Gucci the 4th

With over 30-year martial arts experience, I've taught BUGAKU for 15 years to Japanese and foreign students, and performed all around the world such as London, Florence, Berlin, Paris, Moscow, Jerusalem, Shanghai, San Paulo and more.

I received three Higashi-Kuninomiya Imperial Awards for the international cultural and peaceful contribution in Japan, and in 2019, received the 1st prize selected by the audience in the international theatrical prize in Milan !

Co-host Makoto is an assistant & one of BUGAKU instructors

I love, love, loved learning about the Samurai culture! I was a little embarrassed while practicing the sword moves at the end since I can't remember my left from my right and got everything backwards, but Koshiro was extremely patient and kind. It was nice to be encouraged by someone with 30+ years of experience. I appreciate the culture so much more and can't wait to see our local exhibit in Dallas. This is so much more fun than just reading!! I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Kashiro and Makato gave my team and I a truly unique experience. We all enjoyed learning about the Samurai way of life and had fun practicing some of the moves. Kashiro's swordmanship was very elegant and I'm impressed. If my sword had been real I probably would have sliced off my own ear! Thank you for a pleasurable and educational experience. I hope to visit Tokyo one day and I will look you up.

Very informative and engaging it was perfect as a group activity and I learned a lot about the culture, armor, and techniques of samurai. Getting to move around and do some sword motions was a great. They dove in more than just your classic museum examples to the armor which really impressed me.

We had a great experience for my husband's 40th as we were in quarantine and did this to celebrate near the birthday with our 7 and nearly 5year old. A wonderful experience for adults and children.
