Sōke Katsuse Yoshimitsu Kagehiro established the Suiō-ryū Finland Shibu on 1 July 2013. We are an official branch of the Suiō-ryū directly under Sōke. Jukka Helminen, Taneli Takala and Jussi Jussila are in charge of the Shibu, and function as Sōke’s representatives in Finland and other countries. All members of the Shibu are direct students of Katsuse Sōke. We are not affiliated with any other organisation or federation.
The Finland Shibu has groups in the following cities: Helsinki, Jyväskylä, Kotka, Kouvola, Kuopio, Lahti, Savonlinna, Tallinn, Tampere, and Turku.
