Learn The Sword Online Training Program


This website is designed for those of you who prefer to study online. Consequently, with you in mind, I created this unique tutorial package on Japanese swordsmanship. For the past three decades I have exchanged expertise with thousands of instructors worldwide. Upon my return from the Hombu Dojo in Yokohama, Japan where I studied extensively, I began traveling throughout North America teaching seminars and intensive courses.

During those first seminars the feedback that I was given was that a simple training guideline for martial arts instructors/practitioners was definitely needed. What was once merely a guideline to follow has slowly evolved into “Cyber Sensei” which has become a very comprehensive easily accessed online tutorial program. The Tachi-Iai Training and Ranking manual imbedded with the Cyber Sensei links offer hours and hours of secured HD video of instruction on Japanese Swordsmanship.

Certification Package

This Long Distance Instructor’s Certification Course offers school owners, instructors and students a straightforward way to effectively learn, practice and then become certified in basic Japanese swordsmanship. Incorporate the “way of the sword” into your school’s curriculum as an “add on” or “core” class. When you participate in a traditional Goshindo or combative Chanbara Certification Course, you will learn from the same scripted approach taught in our intensive courses but at your own speed.

During this course you will practice traditional kihon…the basics with short and/or long (wood) swords. You will also hone those traditional skills with the use of the ActionFlex combative padded swords or bamboo hatsuwari depending on your level of expertise. Upon certification you will have the working knowledge needed to instruct the program. This online certified instructors program takes 30 to 60 days to complete.

This package includes:

  • The Chanbara Instructor’s Training Course manual with video downloads
  • Telephone and Skype consultation with Shihan Abbott
  • Cyber Sensei critique and correction included
  • Receive Chanabra certificate upon completion
  • Video updates

Price: $125.00 / one time certification fee + shipping
