Suiō-ryū Iai Kenpō
Suiō-ryū Iai Kenpō (水鷗流 居合 剣法) is a classical japanese martial art founded by Mima Yoichizaemon Kagenobu in 1615, which has been passed down until today. Katsuse Yoshimitsu Kagehiro is the 15th generation Sōke , and teaches the tradition from the Honbu Dojo, the Hekiunkan, located in Shimizu, in the prefecture of Shizuoka. As heir to the tradition, he is responsible for its transmission, and all training groups in Japan and in other countries are under his supervision.
The french branch (shibu) of the Suiō-ryū Iai Kenpō tradition (水鷗流フランス支部) was established by Sōke Katsuse Yoshimitsu Kagehiro on June 18, 2016 during the Numazu summer camp.
The french branch is under the direct supervision of Sōke Katsuse Yoshimitsu Kagehiro. Joan Cresp (Shō-Mokuroku Suiō-ryū) has been appointed as responsible for maintaining tradition and organization in France. All members of the french branch are Soke students. Currently there is one dojo in Toulouse. The french branch itself is not a member of any other sports federation or organization.
