British Shintaido (BS) holds at least two residential events (gasskuku) and workshops per year. Other events may be organised by local groups, or by the BS College (BSC). We aim to add an events calendar on this page in the near future.
This year’s kangeiko was held at the White Cottages at Douai Abbey, near Reading, on 7th & 8th January 2017.
This year’s Daienshu will be held at Douai Abbey, near Reading, from the 28th to the 30th of July 2017.
Major European and international events
We will soon be adding dates of major Shintaido events taking place around the world which might be worth travelling to for those seeking to broaden their experience of international Shintaido. If you know of a major event please let us know!
BS = British Shintaido
BSC = British Shintaido College

BS events are open to all. College events (BSC or ESC) are usually open to those at Assistant or 1-kyu level and above. Technical Committee meetings (ETC or ITC) are for Senior Instructors, or sandan, and above only.
British Shintaido aims to organise a varied selection of events each year, from fairly modest and affordable local events to the more expensive residential events which enable us to go deeper into our practice. The schedule is apt to change sometimes at short notice so it’s worth revisiting this page to check for updates.
