We started the studio in 2013 with the permission of Yoshikazu Nakamura, Shihan. Bob Lowry is the founder of the DC chapter who began his martial arts training in 1989. His instructor Yoshikazu Nakamura began training in 1961 when his Father gave him to his Uncle. Shihans Mother and Father were both descendants from Samurai clans, this is why the studio is called the Samurai Training Academy.
Our Mission is to carry on the history of the Bushinkai Martial Art within a welcoming environment creating everlasting relationships with the family members of The Samurai Training Academy.
