Wish I could give you thanks x 100 for bringing back some wonderful Iaido memories. I had the chance to work with some of the superb cadre of swordsmen you have in Canada some years back, courtesy of the late Sensei Bill Mears. What struck me was that the Canadians were both superb swordsmen and fine human beings...... not a bully or egomaniac in the bunch, and all willing to share knowledge freely. Ohmi Sensei was amazing, and one learned both technique and humility from a seminar with him. My highest respect and best hopes to all of you.

You and everyone else are always welcome to come and train in both Iaido and jodo anytime here in Guelph with Taylor Sensei.

I'm pretty sure Ohmi Sensei and Cruise Sensei would feel the same way.

Drop us an email, to make sure class is on, and come on up and play sticks and sword.

Ninja infestation.

The University has sprayed for them, left out bait traps and the bloody things just keep coming back. You just have to keep an eye out that you dont step on one, otherwise theyre pretty harmless.
