The programs listed on the above menu are all available within the Ryusui-Ryu school and each is designed for a particular age group.
Ryusui-Ryu does pride itself on being a family oriented club and thus caters for all ages. The soft-contact style of our curriculum minimises any chance of injury while still developing a strong level of self defence and self control. It also means that young and old, male and female can quite safely train together.
The senior program is designed for students age 17 yrs and above.
The junior program age range is from 8 yrs of age to 17 yrs.
The little Ronin program is designed for very young children usually in the age range of 5 to 8 yrs of age.
The Iaido (Japanese Sword) program is for 15 yrs and above.
It is possible for more mature children to be placed in the next program up if it is considered necessary. This is possible because each program is designed to feed into the next giving a natural progression from infant, through junior to adult. The local instructor will advise you on this.
