The British Shintaido College (BSC) is an association of Instructors/dan levels and assistants/1 kyu level of Shintaido, Shintaido kenjutsu, bojutsu, karate.
Members meet throughout the year to practise together, undertake research and development, and to share knowledge and skills concerning teaching..
Membership is offered to those who are members of British Shintaido and have reached the required grade. Membership (£30 oer year) covers the costs of venue hire and materials.
The BSC Chair may also invite those who help run regular Shintaido classes – or are aspiring to reach the required level, to take part in BSC meetings.
Shintaido instructors who are members of BSC are also encouraged to join the European Shintaido College (ESC) https://sites.google.com/site/eushincol/ and The International Shintaido Project (ISP) https://international-shintaido.com/
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 Project.
In this way, BSC supports general members and the wider Shintaido community in their regular practice of Shintaido.
BSC runs regular workshops at least 4 times a year. Members are encouraged to practice together outside of the BSC days and develop strong peer-to-peer links. Dates and venues are planned in advance and notified to members.
During the current COVID-19 period of social distancing no face-to-face meetings are taking place. Instructors are invited to join practice via electronic media.
