For a Free Trial Class or Watch a Class

Call or text us at 281-630-0821. (If text, include your name and bit about yourself.)

By appointment, we welcome you to come and watch or participate in a training session. Discovering what iaido can do for you will take more than one session. We encourage you to keep that in mind when you come and watch a class or take a free lesson. If you want to do more than watch, be sure to let us know so we can arrange to have equipment on hand for you to borrow. We have a good friendly group of talented people from various martial arts as well as those that have made this their sole passion. 
( Separately, you can inquire about private lessons to be conducted in person or on Zoom or Google Meet. )

Every year we host Iaido seminars taught by Roger Wehrhahn Shihan, Chief Instructor for North American San Shin Kai. He was a direct personal student of Mitsuzuka Takeshi Sensei for a quarter century until Mitsuzuka Sensei passed away. Wehrhahn Shihan continues to this day a close relationship with Mitsuzuka Sensei’s son, Munehiro Mitsuzuka Sensei who began sword training with his father as a young child and helped instruct the first westerners that came to Japan to study in the 1970’s. The North American San Shin Kai hosts an international summer camp every August where formal testing for rank advancement is conducted.
