Welcome to Seishinkan Iaido!

The 500-year-old art of the Japanese sword


Seishinkan Iaido teaches the traditional koryu martial art of Musou Jikiden Eishinryu Iaido as taught by the late Yasuyoshi Kimura Kancho (10th Dan Hanshi “Grandmaster”) at his dojo Meishinkan in Osaka, Japan.

The head of Seishinkan Iaido is Glenn Stockwell Kancho (7th Dan Kyoshi) who trained directly under Yasuyoshi Kimura Kancho in Osaka since 1991.

Seishinkan Iaido currently has nine dojos in Japan, Australia, the United States of America, and Poland.

Seishinkan Iaido is recognised as an official shibu (regional branch) of the Dai Nippon Iaido Renmei (All Japan Iaido Federation) and is the only non-Japanese dojo recognised by the Renmei in this way.
