Hello, welcome to the site of the Byakkokan Dojo.
This school teaches the curriculum of Toyama Ryu Batto Jutsu, a style created by the Japanese Army. The Zen Nihon Batto Do Renmei and its US counterpart, the US Batto Do Federation, curriculum is also taught here.
The dojo was started in 2005 with the blessing of Hataya Mitsuo sensei (President of All Japan Toyama Ryu Iaido Renmei), and Bob Elder sensei. Through this dojo, I am given the chance to share with people what has become a huge part of my life, and also the chance to continue training for myself.
I humbly invite anyone to come and watch our training sessions. You can even come and try a class! But more than anything, I invite practitioners of all styles and disciplines to come. We are not close minded here - our way is not the only way and we welcome others so we may share and learn from each other. And most of all, enjoy training together!
