Walthamstow Battodo - Way of the Japanese Sword.

Walthamstow Battodo with Sensei Bogdan Drinkov 2nd dan, teaches Nakamura Ryu Battodo.

Batto’ means to draw and strike with the Japanese sword. ‘Do’ refers to a path of training aimed at the complete development of the practitioner.

The Nakamura Ryu school of swordsmanship was founded in 1952 by Taizaburo Nakamura, one of the greatest swordsmen of the modern era, a combat veteran, instructor of close combat and lifelong researcher of traditional swordsmanship. Like Miyamoto Musashi, he abhorred the artificial and impractical developments in many sword schools and sought to recreate a school of genuine combat swordsmanship.
