The Sword is like the Heart
If the Heart is virtuous, so will be the Sword
To learn the way of the Sword
One must first learn the way of the Heart

Welcome to the home page of the Kikusuikai dojo of Iaido, located in the town of Setoda, in Onomichi City.

Our dojo is affiliated to the All-Japan Iaido Federation, and we strive to practice and perpetuate the waza (techniques) as prescribed by the Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu School of Iaido.

Should you wish to learn more about our activities and/or our school, please access the relevant pages using the menu to the left.

☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ We always welcome new students! ☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

We, at the Kikusuikai, want to meet and practice iaido with as many people as possible. If you are interested in ancient martial arts, if you want to try something new or if you want to get some exercise but do not feel confident with your overall body strengh, come to one of our training sessions. You can just watch, or try iaido for yourself!


Students of the Kikusuikai practice once every week. Please come and take a look. We also extend the invitation to iaidoka passing through - come and train with us!
