DISCOVER IAIDO

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.
