|At the University of Guelph, students
of the Sei Do Kai study the All Japan Kendo Federation (ZNKR) Iai
(Zen Ken Ren Iai) and the Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu (MJER) Iai.
The University also offers classes in Kendo
and SDK offers classes in Seitei Gata Jo or the Zen Ken Ren Jo forms
(as well as in Shindo
Muso-ryu Jodo). All three of these arts are governed by the
Federation and the Canadian Kendo Federation.
Finally, we offer classes in the Hyoho Niten Ichiryu kenjutsu under the supervision of 10th headmaster Masayuki Imai and 11th headmaster Toshio Iwami.
The Sei Do Kai is a University of Guelph registered club, operated under the U of G athletics programs. The club is open to anyone of any level, and always welcomes new students and spectators. The Sei Do Kai is also a member of the Canadian Kendo Federation and the Ontario Kendo Federation.
Sei Do Kai may be translated as quiet-active school. Our students strive to understand this unity of action and quiet in the sword practice and in their own lives. The arts are not simply for self-defence or learning how to use a weapon, but are intended as spiritual training.
The club has offered classes and seminars since the fall of 1987. At least once per year senior instructors are invited from Japan, and at other times instructors from other countries come to Guelph to teach.
From Sept to May (fall and winter)
