Kenseikai - means Sword Saint Society. Kenseikai dojo was established in Great Britain by Fujii Sensei more that 40 years ago, in 1967

We primarily concentrate on teaching the three arts of Kendo, Iaido and Jodo. However, amongst our teachers we have a wealth of knowledge pertaining to various other sword and staff arts. Many of these are taught within our group of dojo's and on regular courses that are open to all

We welcome complete beginners and martial artists of any standard to our dojo's. Please feel free to get in touch with us and we will be pleased to answer any of your questions. Or show up to any of our classes and speak or train with us    (contact us)


On Tuesday the 11th April Fujii Okimitsu-sensei suffered a fatal heart attack.
His contribution to kendo is hugely underrated and that he occupies the position as the “Forgotten Ronin” of British kendo, as he touched each and every part associated with kendo and iaido in the early days of the BKA.
Arriving in the UK on the 1st April 1967 he spent most of his life here dedicated to kendo and the Kenseikai kendo clubs that he established.





Fujii Okimitsu 1939 - 2017

Fujii-sensei had lived in Cornwall for many years where he continued to practise and teach kendo & iaido until he sadly passed away.
We will remember him with sincere respect, and fond memories as a very modest, diligent teacher with a kind nature, and a mischievous smile which was to be seen both in and out of the dojo.

‘Rest in Peace dear friend and sensei’.

Paul Budden
