Interested in joining Iaido?
New students may join at any time throughout the year. For the first month, new students may come try practice at no charge. No fees will be due unless you decide to continue past the month-long free trial period.
After the first month, there is an organization registration fee of $75 due, and ongoing fees of $80/month. The organization registration fee is one-time, but does not apply if you are also, or are a returning former member of the Edmonton Kendo Club.
The Edmonton Iaido Club is also part of the Edmonton Japanese Community Association. As EJCA members, each Iaido practitioner is also required to hold membership in the EJCA. When you first join Iaido, a portion of your $75 registration fee is applied to your EJCA membership.
For your first practices, equipment is available to borrow. You will need to purchase an iaito or bokuto with saya (The club can provide bokuto, or we can suggest one of several online retailers, if you prefer) an obi, and kneepads if you register after your trial month. Please see the Equipment page for more information.
