Jim Wilson

  Jim Wilson (renshi, 6th dan Iaido) is the instructor at the Kenshokan club.  Jim has trained in Iaido for over 25 years and has over 40 years of experience in the martial arts.  First coming to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in 2000, Jim has trained there ever since as a student of Ohmi-sensei.  He currently practices at the JCCC whenever possible and teaches regularly in Oshawa and Peterborough.

We are affiliated with the Mu Mon Kai Iaido club from the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in Toronto, Ontario.  This is the foremost dojo for Iaido in Canada.  Ohmi-sensei (kyoshi, 7th dan Iaido, 6th dan Kendo) is the head of the family of clubs associated with Mu Mon Kai.  Students at the Kenshokan Iaido dojo also become members of the Mu Mon Kai family.
