San Antonio Iaido Dojo

Direct transmission is our way

Andresen Sensei maintains vital relationships with his teachers here in Texas as well as our group's direct connections to Japan.

Connected to the source in Japan

Staying connected to the source ensures current, authentic, and meaningful iaido. 

Iaido is a living art

Continuous learning keeps the tradition alive.
