Kurikara ryu is a system of Heiho or strategy. This is a method of cultivation based on Japanese swordsmanship and the internal training methods required to support this art. 

The principles of this system are contained in the Kujiho (nine characters) mandala - a Vajrayana based teaching that evolved among the yamabushi (Japanese mountain monks). This course will focus on the first five of the nine stages of this process which describe the realms of earth, water, fire, air and space and their manifestation both in physical action and observation.

The course will be taught by John Maki Evans 7th Dan the author of Kurikara - the Sword and The Serpent (Blue Snake Books 2010). 

Participants must have some proficiency in sword arts and experience of internal training.
