Dojo Aims

Kenshinkan Dojo was brought about to teach the Japanese Martial Arts and culture through the practice of Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu. An ancient Japanese art of drawing the sword and cutting in a single movement.
The goal of the practice is to attain perfection on a physical and technical level. As perfection is the aim, the way towards will be a long and difficult one.
The specific character of this martial art makes it accessible for all ages and gender, although certain maturity is needed to start serious practicing.
The secret of Iai-do is a calm but strong mind. It is said that the sword is like the mind, and if the sword is straight the mind must be alike.
Kenshinkan Dojo is honoured to be the first Dojo in the UK and Europe to become part of the Japanese Budo Association, and to grow in both clubs and styles of Japanese Budo in the future by promoting and supporting the Japanese Budo Association (JBA) within the UK and Europe.
