Come along to Batsford Arboretum and learn about the strikingly beautiful art of the Japanese sword, Mugai Ryu, during a demonstration at the perfect location of the Japanese Rest House. Mugai Ryu is an old, authentic martial art of the Samurai, founded in 1693. Its founder was a Buddhist monk, and the style has a deep connection to Zen Buddhism.  Simple and direct, it has a plain beauty with a characteristic calmness and sharp attention. The demonstration itself is free to watch, however the Arboretum entrance fee applies. No need to book – just turn up and enjoy!
