We are delighted to celebrate Ishido Sensei’s 40th anniversary of visiting Europe to teach and promote Iaido and Jodo to an ever-growing group of enthusiastic followers.

Also we are extremely honoured that his year's seminar will be led by Ishido Shizufumi Sensei himself who will be supported by a delegation of high-ranked teachers from Japan.

The delegation from Japan will be joined by the following Embusha: Inari Yuko, Takiwaza Tomomi and Beau Brier.

The task of teaching will be shared by the Japanese instructors with the participating European sensei.

This year Ishido Sensei has asked that we extend the Bunka Koryu Embu Taikai that was held in 2015 by organising a mixed nations team koryu taikai for Iaido and as close as we can achieve this for Jodo as well. Entry to the taikai is included in the price for the seminar and you will be included as you register. This will give everyone an opportunity to build new relationships with budo students from other European countries as well as Japan.

On this website you may find relevant information regarding the organisation, seminars, venue, lodging and registration.
