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

This is a super fun experience of 'becoming a samurai'. You get to learn about the culture and how it has become traditional Japanese culture. Then you get a tour of Sensei's dojo, armours, shrine, weapons. You get to ask questions of real experts. And then you can practise sword techniques with feedback from Sensei! What more could you want?!

It was definitely a great experience! We booked a private lesson for a student group. We enjoyed the historical section where we learned about different armor pieces and helmets. Great hospitality and willing to answer every questions. Practicing the sword work was absolutely FUN! Thank you for the great experience!

We booked this event as part of a team building exercise for a student group. The hosts did a wonderful job of providing historical context and information on samurai before starting the exercises. All of our group thoroughly enjoyed learning about samurai as well as practicing for ourselves. The instructor was very thoughtful in working both with the full group and one-on-one with participants. It was well designed, informative and lots of fun. A really great option for a zoom meeting in which you can get up and move about the room. We learning so much in such a short time! I highly recommend this for team building, families, and those generally interested in learning about a fascinating aspect of Japanese culture.

Very interesting and fun for both me and my sons. We especially enjoyed learning about the armour and trying the sword fighting moves (though our ceiling was a bit too low!).

We really enjoyed our session with Koshiro and and co host Makoto. It was very interesting to learn some history about Samurai, see some their incredible outfits and learn some moves. The older kids (8) loved it! My younger son (6) found the history a bit hard to follow but loved the weapons lesson! We are planning a trip to Japan now since we enjoyed it so much. Thank you!

We planned this experience as a Christmas gift to my family from ages 5-61 and everyone had a fantastic time. It was a great way to celebrate our heritage and we learned a lot about Samurai culture. The kids (and adults) had a blast practicing their moves.
