<i>Tatedo</i> sword fighting

Tatedo sword fighting

Wield a sword like a samurai... well, a samurai in the movies anyway

Become a Japanese stuntman! No samurai movie would be a complete without a sword fight and tatedo is the modern Japanese art of stage fighting using swords made from wood or bamboo.
 
Osaka is the home of this art form, and InsideJapan can arrange an hour long lesson at a famous school which has trained actors for many Japanese action movies.
