Iaido: Something that's just a little bit different
Iaido is Martial Art that has its roots in ancient Japan. It is the art of drawing the Japanese sword. A sister art to Kendo it is non contact and teaches 'katas' which are pre-prepared forms or situations to deal with that train your muscle memory to react.
WHAT IS SEIBUKAN ASHFORD? WHAT IS OUR APPROACH?
Seibukan is a club where both Seitei (modern) and Koryu (traditional) Iaido are taught, specifically the Muso Shinden Ryu style.
We train hard at Seibukan, but we try to do so in a lighter environment than you might find at other clubs. It's important that each lesson is fun and enjoyed.
We're a British Kendo Association registered dojo and as such we strive to meet their standard.
