The 2012 ‘MSMAS Iaido Festival’ will once again be open to all, irrespective of rank, Dojo and/or Association.
Cost: £25.00 for full day (Or £15.00 for either AM or PM Session)
The Programme (Subject to change) is planned to cover Mus? Jikiden Eishin-ry? forms (Shoden, Ch?den & Okuden).
Subject to numbers, a suitable venue will be located in the area close to MSMAS.
A ‘Special Session’ is also planned covering Tameshigiri, for those with Shinken.
Tameshigiri is practiced at The Mid Sussex Martial Arts School, but only for those who have attained YuDansha ranking in Seitei Iaido, the basis of Iaido at our Dojo, prior to the study of MJER.
During his week-long visit, Kyoshi Long will also personally instruct Renshi Bibby, who leads MJER at MSMAS, on a one-to-one basis.
Also planned, a closed ‘Master Class’ for our entire Iaido Group at MSMAS to close the week……
