From a young age, Masayuki Shimabukuro studied judo, karate-do, Okinawan kobudo weapons and other traditional Japanese martial arts techniques before focusing his attention to the Samurai swordsmanship. In 1975, Masayuki Shimabukuro began his sword training under the supervision of Miura Takeyuki Hidefusa, 20th generation grandmaster of muso jikiden eishin-ryu in Osaka, Japan. When Masayuki Shimabukuro was appointed Kokusai Bucho (International Chairman) of the Nippon Kobudo Jikishin-kai, he made it his mission to spread the martial arts techniques of authentic eishin-ryu samurai swordsmanship all over the world.
