About Me

Kouken Sugiura is a film and theatre actor and film producer.

He is a practitioner of Suio-ryu and is trained in several ancient Japanese martial arts. He can do theatrical combat using katana and other medieval weapons. 

He is a dedicated practitioner of the ancient school of samurai horseback archery that worked closely with Director Akira Kurosawa on many of his period pieces including Seven Samurai and Hidden Fortress. He regularly performs in Shinto ceremonies in Japan and overseas performances. In addition to the bow and arrow, he can handle a variety of weapons on horse back including the sword, spear and naginata.

「七人の侍」「隠し砦の三悪人」などを制作した黒澤監督が惚れ込んだ弓馬術を礎に、神事・国賓のもてなし・海外から招聘されての演武に携わる。

また太刀,薙刀,槍など他武器を扱う騎馬術にも長ける。

 

地上での対人闘技を想定しては古流の総合武術である水鷗流居合剣法を修行。

殺陣においても実践的なそれを体現する。
