The British Shintaido College (BSC) is an association of Instructors/dan levels and assistants/1 kyu level of Shintaido, bojutsu and Shin-karate. Membership is offered to those who have reached the required grade but the BSC Chair may also invite those who help run regular Shintaido classes – or are aspiring to reach the required level.
BSC promotes high standards in the teaching of Shintaido and deepens members’ understanding of the curricula and philosophy of Shintaido. This is done by sharing practice and participating in R&D. There are close links with the European Shintaido College and International Shintaido College.
In this way, BSC supports general members and the wider Shintaido community in their regular practice of Shintaido.
BSC runs regular one-day workshops throughout the year, usually at Elstree School, near Reading. Members are encouraged to practice together outside of the BSC days and develop strong peer-to-peer links.
Current upcoming BSC meetings are:
- Friday 28th July 2017, Elstree School (before the BS Daienshu)
- Sunday 22nd October 2017, Elstree School
- Saturday 6th January 2018, Elstree School (before the BD Kangeiko)
- Sunday 8th April 2018, Elstree School
- Friday 1st June 2018, Pioneer Centre (before the BS Daienshu)
