Never been.. but I know of a Kendo place in Bramhall if you are interested in that also?

It's on Seal Road at the Recreational Centre next to the school there.

Our club is situated in Wigan, Lancashire, (about 20 miles from Manchester). We study iaijutsu.

(for the non students, we are taught the classic iai forms, but also distancing, timing, and many other aspects of the sword than just the forms(kata))

If you are interested, reply or send me a mail

You trying to run before you can walk?

Most dojo's wouldn't perform tameshigiri mainly because there aren't enough high ranking iaidoka present.
When you think that for Godan or Rokudan grading only then do most iaidoka use a shinken, its not suprising that cutting in the dojo is rare.
Of course some dojos are different and may use a shinken before this time. But i don't know of any.

I think there are some Ken Jutsu dojo's in the UK who teach individually and you learn tameshigiri, but only when you're at a VERY high standard.

If you could contact me somehow? Maybe by e-mail or something, I'm very interested in taking up Kendo and I live VERY near Bramhall so that'd be very cool.

All the details are in my profile. Thanks.
