Welcome to our news and archives.  Please note that all test results are posted for the current year, but may not appear in the archives.  Full records are kept at our main office.  In addition, photographs and news releases prior to 1997 are kept in our school library at our main location dating back to the 1960s.

Iaido February Testing is now Completed

The February Iaido testing was set for two available dates.  One, for which the results have already been posted, took place on Wednesday, February 14th, and the second day available to students was set for Friday, February 23rd. Two dates were made available for those students living far enough away that they might not have been able to make the trip in the middle of the week. One student who lives outside of New York State was unable to make the Wednesday, February 14th testing, but did test on the Friday, February 23rd date. 

The student, Bret Jessee, started his testing at 6:00 pm and concluded by 8:00 pm.  He had as a partner in Kumi Tachi and Muto Dori two of the classes’ Tashi students, and he was graded by Headmaster Crandall.  His spirit and kihaku were a credit to his Bushido training.

Bret Jessee has passed his testing.  He is now ranked as an Advanced Student in Takenouchi-Hangan-Ryu-Matsuno-Crandall Iaido/Batto-do, and he will receive his certificate and black stripe at his next class. 

Congratulations to Bret and all of the Iaido students that tested this February.
