“ Samurai experience ”

I really really enjoyed the lesson. My instructor was a very knowledgeable lady. As constructive feedback, I encourage her to speak slowly, so enounciating is easier, and more clear. I think that would help the listening for those whose native language isnt english. Overall, the environment was great. There were plenty of instructors making sure we were doing the right moves. It was an outstanding service. After I went, I recommended it to 4 people and they all went to do what I did thing the same week :) Cheers!


Hello. Thank you for visiting Samurai Kembu Theater. I am very glad that I was able to introduce the enjoyment of this performing arts to your family. We practice and everyday teach as a Japanese traditional arts master. And also we will continue to work to convey the culture that the samurai created. I hope the experiences here will be wonderful memories. Thank you very much.
