Osada-Ryu Dojos and students

Please visit Mr Osada Steve’s website to read the original and updated information in English about Osada-Ryu Dojo and students

at Osada-Ryu on this link and this other link for student information. Enjoy!


The Tokyo Dojo focuses exclusively on one-to-one tuition, coaching and training. Intensive courses are tailored to individual needs, have a typical duration of between two and three weeks, and include free accommodation at the Dojo itself. The very first one-to-one intensive course at the Tokyo Dojo took place in 2003.


Melbourne Rope Dojo

The Melbourne Rope Dojo holds two classes weekly (a beginners and an intermediate) in Osada-ryu. The Dojo also offers private one-to-one tuition. Bi-monthly, the Dojo holds a Salon, with the focus being on tying rather than instruction.

The Dojo has one Licensed instructor.

Vienna Kinbaku Dojo

The Vienna Kinbaku Dojo holds weekly training sessions in Osada-ryu. The Dojo has two instructors graduated within Osada-ryu.


In being an “open” system, Osada-ryu is consistently evolving to reflect the latest developments in the Japanese tying arts.
To safeguard authenticity abroad, all Dojo masters receive regular specialist instructor training, with instructor licenses
having to be renewed mandatorily every year. If you are a student and are unable to find your name here, please contact
your respective Dojo.
