The mission of the Florida Satsunankai is to pass on the ancient cultural heritage of the Tenshinsho Jigen-ryu to maintain alive the traditions of the Japanese culture and the Satsuma warriors. At the same time through training of the sword we hope to attain the discipline and develop the character to become better human beings and contribute to the harmony and peace of the world.
