Kashima-Shinryû is admitting new students during Autumn 2020 season.

Successful study of this curriculum prepares student for safe, effective and meaningful study of the more advanced Kashima-Shinryû.

Fee of (50EUR) covers practice fees until end of Dec 2020 and is collected from new students after a few weeks of introductory period (“Try first if you’re going to commit to practice.”)
