Established in 1985, by Sensei Robert Corella, our Dojo practices Araki Ryu Iaido. This style was founded by Araki Mujinsai Minamotono Hidetsuna over 400 years ago.
Our style has 20 kata which must be mastered in order to achieve Shodan rank. These kata concentrate on suwariwaza, or seated techniques, because this is when one is most vulnerable. Additionally, we teach Kenbu, which is the unique art of sword dancing.
Located in the heart of central Phoenix, the Kenshin Dojo is a welcoming and friendly environment. We invite you to visit us and learn more about this authentic Japanese martial art.
