The Musoshindenryu Iaido – Moorhead Dojo, in association with the Midwest Kendo Federation (MWKF) is happy to announce our first annual IAIDO seminar in Moorhead, Minnesota on July 29, 30 & 31, 2011. Instruction will be provided by the AUSKF via the AUSKF visiting instructor program. Instructors will be announced as those details are finalized.
The seminar will focus on Iaido – fundamentals, and kata, but will also feature a couple of sessions of Kendo keiko. One track of instruction will be an “Introduction to Iaido” that will teach beginning Iai
practitioners or Kenshi that do not yet practice Iaido the basics needed to start learning Iaido; and there will be a second parallel track of instruction with a focus on Iaido for current practitioners. A complete (tentative) schedule can be seen on the Schedule of Events page.
The seminar is open to anyone – of all levels of Iaido experience. There is a separate fee structure for members of the AUSKF / CKF. Participants who are not members of the Kendo Federation who wish to join, may do so at the seminar. The cost of membership in the AUSKF is $40/year.
Attendees are encouraged to register online and there is a discount for pre-payment.
The seminar will be held at Concordia College, in Moorhead MN, and affordable on-campus accommodations are available. More information on the location and lodging can be seen on the Venue page.
There will be vendors from Nosyudo of Seki Japan, SDK Supplies and ProSwords both of Canada offering a selection of iaito, steel iaito, and gear.
The local site organization is being handled by Mr. Bradley Anderson, head instructor of the Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido Moorhead Dojo.
Your attendance will help make this event a success!
