History
Shinkendo (真剣道, 眞劍道 Shinkendō) is a gendai budō that teaches the authentic way of samurai swordsmanship. The meaning of the name Shinkendo can be interpreted as the "real way of the sword".
Toshishiro Obata (小幡 利城) is both founder and head instructor of the International Shinkendo Federation (国際真剣道連盟 Kokusai Shinkendō Renmei).

Style
As students advance in experience, the Iaitō (unsharpened swords) is used to learn the necessary skills of drawing and sheathing with a realistic weapon. Additionally Shinkendo training includes test cutting with Shinken (real swords) against "tatami omote makiwara" (rolled up bamboo mats that have been soaked in water).
Students are also taught traditional samurai etiquette, not only for discipline and historical aspects, but to ensure everyone's safety in the dojo.
