Who We Are

We are a small study group in the West Midlands, committed to passing on the teachings and traditions of the Samurai. These arts have passed from generation to generation since the 17th century, predating karate and judo by over three centuries.

What We Do

We study the traditional Japanese arts of iaido (the art of drawing the sword), kenjutsu (Japanese fencing) and Jodo (the way of the staff). We have fully accredited & insured instructors who have trained both in the UK and Japan.

Where We Are

We are located in Brownhills, between Walsall, Cannock and Lichfield. Our dojo is a 250-square-metre permanent training facility for sword-arts only, and was built in 2011 by the members. Heijoshin has been teaching sword arts since 2005.
