Nihonzashi Store and Dojo 二本差し 刀剣商
The Nihonzashi Store and Dojo is dedicated to supporting Japanese
Swordsmanship. Our mission is to provide high quality low cost equipment
and services to practitioners of Japanese Swordsmanship. The company was
created to support the local students in the St Petersburg / Tampa area, but we
hope we can help you find the right equipment for your needs. We have an
extensive selection of shinken (live functional
katana) and iaito (unsharpened or semi-sharp practice
katana). If you are a serious practitioner of Japanese Swordsmanship or
just love swords, this is the place you have been looking for.
Nihonzashi LLC was formed by Mike and Sherry Femal. Both study Toyama
Ryu Batto Do and understand what training equipment you may want or need.
We are always looking for new swords that can live up to the rigors of the dojo
and real use.
Mike Femal studied Toyama ryu since 1994. He teaches Japanese
Swordsmanship in the Konjaku Kioi Dojo in St. Petersburg, Florida. He has won 12
gold medals in competitions in both the United States and Japan and was the
overall champion in the 2001 and 2003 Orlando Batto Jutsu Tai Kai.
Sherry Femal has 25 years of business and accounting
experience. She is dedicated to customer satisfaction. She has been
involved with Toyama Ryu for many years and has been a student since 2004.
Nihonzashi Sword Shop and Dojo offers a unique place where you can come check
out our huge selection of swords first hand. Every sword is different and
we believe you need to personally find the right equipment for you. Let us
know if you we can support you or your dojo.
