I am Hideo, the leader of Shinkageryu Kenjutsu Tsukikage Juku. My job is an instructor in Shikageryu and a violin instructor. You might suppose Kenjutsu is different from violin at first sight, but they are similar about body controls. We don't use muscles but use nerves.
For example, when we relax muscles, the body relaxes but the nerves don't relax. This is common to ways of playing the violin.
Thirty have have passed since I started Kenjutsu, and fifteen years have passed since I encountered Shinkageryu; my important method of Kenjutsu. Not cutting with sword is the core of Kenjutsu, and this law exists in Shikageryu. I am past fifty and feel that I haven't touched the most profound ideas of Shikageryu, but I want to explore Shikageryu more deeply.
