    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. Or you can sign up to our e-mail mailing list using the form in the footer section of this page.


    BS = British Shintaido
    BSC = British Shintaido College

    ETC = European Technical Committee
    ITC = International Technical Committee


    What is Shintaido?

    While Shintaido is grounded in traditional Japanese martial arts, it does not aim to defeat or overpower an opponent, and its practice is entirely non-competitive.
