“Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido ("The way of the warrior in the dragon's style") is a traditional Japanese martial arts. According to historical sources,“Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido”is based on the sword martial arts of the Japanese samurai: the“Niten-Ichi-Ryu” ("two-sword technique") of the probably most famous samurai warrior“Miyamoto Musashi”(1584-1645) and his work “Gorin-No-Sho” (earth, water, fire, wind and emptiness – the five elements) as well as the“Koryu-Bujutsu”(traditional art of war) of the samurai warriors of the 16th – 19th century. In addition to teaching the physical application of techniques - including basic falling techniques, unarmed fighting techniques, armed fighting with the“Katana”(the "samurai sword") and various wooden and metal arms - “Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido” also tries to enlarge your horizon and sharpen your mind with meditation, concentration and self-discipline.

The“Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido”teaching is rounded off by a theoretical training – including studies on the history, culture, scripture and language of Old and Modern Japan – and an outdoor training, where the skills gained during the practical sessions in the gym are put into practice outdoors.”
