Remembering Ron Plumsteel
It is with great sadness that the Vancouver Iaido Club announces the passing of our dearest friend Ron Plumsteel.
Your brightness, warmth, and laugh will be deeply missed. We loved all your stories and hearing about all your travels. Your patience and kindness in sharing your knowledge of iaido was a fixture in our dojo and we appreciated it so much. You will be in our hearts always.

Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido
The Vancouver Eishin Ryu Iaido Club practices the classical form of iaido known as Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu. This martial art dates back over 450 years and is unbroken in its transmission through the ages. The founder of the martial art that would later become known as Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu was Hayashizaki Jinsuke Minamoto no Shigenobu (c. 1546 - 1621). The Vancouver Eishin Ryu Iaido Club is led by Hiro Inoue Sensei and it is an officially accredited dojo of the iaido international federation known as Seito Seiryu Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido Kokusai Renmei (IKR). Seito Seiryu Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido Kokusai Renmei, also known as Iaido Kokusai Renmei, is headed by Esaka Sensei.
