In joining Australia's original and most progressive Nakamura Ryu Battodo School you will learn SHIZAN the art of target-cutting, KUMITACHI fencing-drills, KATA sword-drills, JUKENDO  sword v bayonet drills and
 BATTODO the art of drawing and cutting with the sword in one swift action.

Shizan the art of target-cutting: slicing through five rolled up tatami-omote.

To be inundated with membership- applications is indeed a great honour and shows the school's commitment and high level of instruction (Nakamura Ryu Battodo Happogiri Toho Australia) being recognised Australia wide and beyond.

Hans Fricke sensei, now in his mid 80s and in retirement, no longer conducts large classes: teaching only a small group of selected students.
