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.
