Club history

The roots of Edinburgh Genbukan date back to 2000, when the club was publicly known as The Edinburgh Iaido Club. In 2005 the club became officially known as Edinburgh Genbukan, the first branch dojo of Kobe Genbukan, after permission was given to Honisz-Greens sensei to publicly use the name. This is in recognition of the strong connection the club has with its roots in Japan and to Oshita sensei. With Honisz-Greens sensei's extended absence in Japan, the club has gone from strength to strength under the stewardship of David McLean Sensei.
