| Mitsuhiro Saruta's goal is to inform people, all over the world, of the
of traditional Japanese BUSHIDO. Aside from his main school in Sakai, Osaka and the now under construction Hiroshima
school, many prominent teachers of various style of sword and other martial arts have come under the RYU SEI KEN banner and teachings of Master Saruta. These schools act branches for Master Saruta as well. They can be found in Japan, Korea,
Philippines, and in many States Of the U.S.A. Aside from being called on as a guest to many tournaments and demonstrations In various countries, Master Saruta has been holding his own international Tournaments and the popular International BUDO Festivals for several years.
