British Shintaido College
The British Shintaido College (BSC) is an association of instructors and assistant in Shintaido and those with equivalent qualifications in associated disciplines.
Membership is offered to paid-up members of British Shintaido who have reached the required grade. BSC members pay a higher membership fee which covers the costs of venue hire for self-study BSC meetings which take place throughout the year.
These BSC meetings are an opportunity to practise with fellow instructors, undertake research and development, and to share knowledge and skills concerning teaching. Any BSC member can propose and lead a keiko (or part of a keiko) at these meetings.
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 these BSC meetings.
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.
