Hello,

one of my friends is moving to the south of Hokkaido. Hes looking for a koryu dojo focusing on sword arts. But for the beginning, everything is fine :-)

Best,

Sorry, I don't know of anyone there personally. I know of a few Koryu in Hakodate and Sapporo, but outside the bigger cities in Hokkaido, there's not rich pickings,I'm afraid.

I did come across this:

http://www.aiki.jp/nagao/contact.html

It's a group that teaches Ono ha and Daito Ryu in Tomakomai.

I have no idea of what they teach,lineage etc. but your friend mightn't have a great deal of choice unless he's willing to travel.

Those of us in the Genbukan are very familiar with Nagao Sensei, as he is a teacher of Tanemura Soke. He is the Soke of Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Yamamoto-ha, and also of Mugen Shinto Ryu Iaijutsu.

Thanks for the information! :)
My friend will contact Nagao-sensei when he will be in Japan.

Thank you very much for your help!
