WELCOME TO CASTLE TINTAGELTokyo’s #1 Medieval Martial Arts Organization!
What is Castle Tintagel?
Benefits of Membership
Get in shape while you learn the skills of the medieval warriors! For some, this will be the first time they have ever had a reason to want to work out; for others, this will be the opportunity to test their bodies to the limit.
Castle Tintagel has a warm and open community of members from many countries. All ages, sizes, and genders are welcome!
The resurrection of lost martial arts is interesting enough on it own, but Tintagel also has regular Tournaments, Challenge Days, and Cultural events. It’s hard to get bored here.
What are Kishido and Bushido?
Study Knightly Combat, both armored and unarmored. You will study 15th longsword, spear, halberd, weapon and shield, dagger, and grappling. Most of our martial arts are based in the German knightly tradition.
Study Samurai Combat, armored and unarmored. You will study katana, yari, naginata, tanto, and grappling.
Members may attend as many standard curriculum classes each month as are available.
What is Medieval Battle Sports
In Castle Tintagel, we keep a strong distinction between the martial arts skills classes, and the competitive systems used to test and hone our skills. Medieval Battle Sports (MBS) is a system of sports designed to help you improve as a fighter and to monitor your own progress. There are many options, so you can fight at your desired level of skill and safety.
Compete in either or both Light Battle activities and tournaments or Armored Battle activities and tournaments.
You might even go on to eventually join the Japan Armored Battle League, which holds regular team events using the MBS STEEL! Rules.
