Edo Machi-kata Taiho Jutsu is not a standalone, independent martial art system. Rather, it supplements existing training in traditional styles of jujutsu (unarmed techniques), as well as kenjutsu and iaido (swordsmanship). In addition, many aspects of Edo Machi-kata Taiho Jutsu may also be appropriate for modern law enforcement training.

If you are a martial arts student or instructor interested in affiliation with Edo Machi-kata Taiho Jutsu, please contact the your regional representative.
