Jim Alvarez has been training in the martial arts for over 39 years. He holds the rank of Godan in ASU and trains directly under Saotome Shihan. He is Kyoshi/Toku-i in Shinkendo as well as Sandan in Toyama Ryu Batto-do both awarded by Shinkendo Kaiso Toshishiro Obata.
In 1989 Jim opened his own dojo to further his exploration of Aikido. Soon after opening the dojo Jim found there were elements that were missing in his Aikido sword training that he longed to explore. In his search for these elements he discovered Toshishiro Obata Sensei and the new art of Shinkendo he had just developed. In 1992 he began his training under Obata Sensei and has since been exploring the connections between Aikido and Japanese sword.
