Mike Femal - Head Instructor (dojo cho)
Femal Sensei has been teaching Toyama Ryu in St. Petersburg, Florida since 2001. He has won 12 gold medals in competitions in both the United States and Japan and was the overall champion in the 2001 and 2003 Orlando Batto Jutsu Tai Kai.
Mike Femal was one of the founding members of the US Federation of Batto Do. He was awarded the rank of Yondan (4th degree black belt), and became a certified instructor for that organization. He served as the first Membership Director and later as the first Shinpan Bucho (Director of Judges) in that organization. He passed the Zen Nihon Batto Do Renmei Shinpan certification test and formalized the initial Taikai judging criteria for the US Federation of Batto Do.
Femal Sensei is now dedicated to the study of Japanese swordsmanship as the dojo-cho of the independent Konjaku Kioi Toyama Ryu Dojo. He is focused on the continued improvement of himself and his students. They keep true to their path by continuing to visit the Seizankai Dojo of Machida Japan as guests of Hataya Sensei.
