Ikenobo Books

There are many books to use when studying Ikenobo.  The Invitation to Ikenobo series is an excellent source for Ikenobo.

  • The six Invitation to Ikenobo books listed below are sold at $10 each while our supplies last.
    • Shoka Shofutai I, Shoka Shofutai II and Shoka Shimputai
    • Beginning Rikka, Rikka I and Rikka II




There are four newly published books that are in English that we recommend and they are also available at every Level I lesson.

We recommend the following package for beginning students.  These books would cost $125 individually, but we will sell them as a package for $100 (15% discount)

The following books are excellent for those interested in more intense study of Ikenobo. They are out of print, but are generally available on the internet.  Some are occasionally available for sale from the chapter.
