Sensei Scotts journey in martial arts started as a student at the age of fourteen here in Lowestoft.

 

Having suspended his martial arts training while serving in the British Armed Forces Scott returned to Martial Arts studying Traditional Japanese Shotokan Karate at the Satori dojo under Chris Broadley in Lowestoft acheiving Dan ranking in 2004.

 

Scott has been studying Iaijutsu since 2014 initially independently and in recent years with the Rhode Island Budo Academy and the Japanese Budo Association where he achieved Dan ranking in Summer 2020, and is currently ikkyu (1st Kyu) with the Yamato-Ryu Nippon Budo Kai.

Scott has studied military history throughout his life, focusing on the Sengoku Jidai (Age of the country at war) and the american Civil War. He is contemplative, and often enjoys demonstrating the Japanese Tea Ceremony (Chanoyu) as he attempts to find Heijoshin (Peace of Mind)

 

Scotts obvious enthusiasm for both the technical and spiritual side of Iaijutsu creates classes that challenge and encourage students while reinforcing their achievements.
