MSMAS Kendo ~ Enjoy 'OPEN' Kendo Seminar with Renshi Terashima ...

Another great MSMAS Kendo Seminar, this time held in our new Kendo Dojo...


Held under the leadership of MSMAS Kendo Head Dr Shuichi Terashima 5th Dan Renshi, Shihan DNBKID, B.A. (Hons), M.Sc. & Ph.D.

Terashima Sensei was born in a small town in the Northern Region Tochigi Prefecture. His family history was that of the Shizoku (Samurai warrior) class, descended from Aizu han (Aizu clan), with inherited blood of Seiwa-genji. Unfortunately his family archives were destroyed and burnt by the Satsuma army during the Aizu-war. (1868). When Shuichi was 5 years old he first took up a shinai under the tutelage of his Grandfather. He was then moved to a local Kendo Dojo when he was 7.

The Dojo was large with about 100 Members with several Teachers from Tochigi Police and Kokushikan University, there, as a result of hard training; he had some good results at major tournaments. At the age of 17 he was diagnosed as RD (retinal detachment). After recovering from his operation, he resumed Kendo.

His biggest change in Kendo was meeting with one Nito kendo-ka (two swords) which had a great impact on the future of his Kendo life. Nito style made him think how deep sword fighting philosophy was and he has been training Nito Kendo since then.
