Learn Japanese Calligraphy
Founded by Master Calligrapher Eri Takase, Takase Shodokai offers authentic courses in Japanese Calligraphy.
While it is better to be able to sit down with an instructor, this is not always possible or practical. And if you are fortunate enough to have an instructor, sometimes more detailed information is needed. To this end we have developed an extensive Japanese Calligraphy course for both self-study and to supplement current studies.
Japanese Calligraphy is all about movement and movement simply cannot be taught in a book. This is why we offer our unique courses on CD-ROM. Each CD in the series shows detailed explanations, stroke order, and frame by frame analysis and there are over thirty videos showing proper technique for brushing the character.
Along with the correct way to brush the character, student samples and videos are also shown with corrections and explanations. By showing both right and wrong technique one learns what is correct and how to fix what is not.
