I run a club in Wigan (Wigan Bujutsu Kai) under International Martial Arts Federation.

Happily, I learn Iai in a nurturing environment with support from home and abroad. This is a short post as I'm off out to work.

I only have one sword, so I wouldnt call it a collection, but I'm not trained with it. I plan on eventually trying to locate a school in my area for either kendo or ia...but I decided to take a jujitsu class for atleast a year before going into swords.
I do practice with escrima sticks though, and some of the basics carry over I suppose.

I origionaly bought my katana because I had wanted one for ages, but now I train with a boshe job bokken in kendo, all I know is the basics really, so I'm pretty crap at it. I want to train in a dojo but I don't think there are any near me, the only one I've heard of is near london in sutton or some where like that, but I want to know if there is one in Norwich or Lowestoft (does anyone know these places? - in east of england) but I don't think there are any, at least not advertised.

Perhaps a "Stickie" called Find a Dojo or something might help?
