Symbol of Shinbukan Texas Keikokai School

The Shinbukan Texas Keikokai was originally formed to study Japanese sword arts. We study and practice the classical samurai koryu of Shinbukan Kuroda Dojo, under its soke Tetsuzan Kuroda.

Official Shinbukan Dojos

Kuroda Sensei is the only teacher of his system. There are only 7 official places where you can learn and study Shinbukan Kuroda Ryu-gi under the instruction of Kuroda Sensei. These dojos are:

Shinbukan Kuroda Dojo (Hombu Dojo) in Saitama-shi,Japan

Shinbukan Tokyo Keikokai in Tokyo, Japan

Shinbukan Kansai Keikokai in Amagasaki-shi, Japan

Shinbukan Texas Keikokai in San Antonio, Texas, USA

Shinbukan California Keikokai, at the Dojo of the Four Winds in Encinitas, California, USA

Shinbukan Chicago Keikokai in Chicago, Illinois, USA

Shinbukan Europe Keikokai in Paris, France

*Anyone or place that is not listed among these groups but claims to teach Kuroda Sensei's ryu-gi is not an official student of Kuroda Sensei, and does not have Sensei's permission to teach his ryu-gi, and certainly does not have the knowledge, experience, and understanding of the ryu-gi to teach anyone else these complicated systems.

The Shinbukan Texas Keikokai meets every Saturday from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM.

All persons interested in learning this koryu are welcome to join by applying at the study group geographically located nearest to you. Contact us in Texas at (210) 695-6235, (210) 325-1144, or email us at "stk(at)shinbukantexas(dot)org".
