The purpose of Matsukaze is studying Kendo, Kenjutsu, Iaijutsu from era prior to the the modern age of Japan (prior to the Meiji Restoration in 1868).
Financial the group is based on a non-profit foundation. Our group contents of people who maintain the old traditions and enter into a study group about the culture of the samurai, the professional warrior of nobility in the feudal Japan which was in service at a feudal lord.
The practically practise is based on the oldest budo system, called kobudo. In kobudo are moral and discipline more important than techniques. Without moral and discipline there will be no tradition. We have passion for the old Japanese swordsmanship from the Tokugawa period (1603-1868) and are not interested in modern initiative within Japanese culture like sport (competition).
We refer to the website for the Danish Traditional Kendo Federation concerning description of the Japanese swordsmanship Kendo, Kenjutsu and Iaijutsu.
We have base in Vallensbæk where the practise take place in the open and indoor. Furthermore we have frequent practise with the groups below in order to development the community and the capacity technically.
