    The Author

    Shihan Roger Wehrhahn began his Martial Arts training in 1969 in Kearny, NJ with an excitement and enthusiasm that has now spanned almost three and a half decades. The training consisted of traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate Do and Kobudo (Weapons). In 1980, he began attending as many intensive seminars and training sessions as he could find in the arts of Ken Jutsu and Iai (Technique of the sword). He was truly developing an appreciation for Iai and a thirst for an orderly disciplined form of sword training.
    In 1984, Shihan began his formal training in Iaido under Grand Master Mitsuzuka Takeshi at a summer long series of seminars in NYC and by September, that very same year, was in Tokyo Japan studying Iaido at the hombu dojo. Shihan Wehrhahn holds the rank of 6th dan in Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido in the San Shin Kai, 5th dan Okinawan Goju ryu Karate, 4th dan Kobayashi Shorin Ryu Karate and 4th dan Ryukyu Kobudo. Shihan continues to focus his training and teaching on the arts of Iaido, Kobudo and Karate Do and is available for lectures and seminars.
