Good day to all, 


Todo Kai, as you know, will be hosting the Kokusai Renemi 2015 seminar. All info and seminar registration can be now found on our website,  

We are grateful to have support of the Best Western Northgate Hotel in Nanaimo who have substantially reduced the room rate  for our seminar and will hold these rooms for booking  until April 28/15 at the discounted rate. As they have stated….“Please book early as rooms are available on a first come first serve basis. Any rooms not claimed will be released on April 28th, after which the discounted group rate will no longer apply.”  Please advise your

students of this great savings and that May/June is a busy time in Nanaimo for multiple events and hotels etc book up quickly!! 

As you will note all payments will be sent to my home address and I will leave you with the option, as dojo heads, gathering all funds and sending them to me or have your students mail us on an individual basis. We will be happy to

answer any further questions through my email address, ,

We look forward to sharing iaido with all of you in May!!


Thank you all so much,

Hi Guys.Classes begin again this Friday,January 9th at the usual time-from 5:45 pm to 7:15 pm.

Sensei pays the Insurance money necessary to keep this Class going out of his own pocket,so it would be nice if more students would come out to practice at this location.

I made announcement in our dojo that I'll be back to practice in January 3rd at Scottish Centre.
My shoulder is much better condition these days, but still kind of scared if it may come back....
I haven't draw my sword almost one year... must be quite rusty rusty (not my sword, but my movement).
Higher angle, Lifting my right arm straight-up (Furikaburi) is difficult, No Ukenagashi please.....
Anyway, I made commitment already, so I got do it.

Hope you can make Scottish centre seminar.
