Head instructor: George McCall

George, a fully qualified Japanese high school teacher, has been working at one of Osaka prefectures top academic public high schools for over a decade. Teaching kendo is part of his job, which makes him the only non-Japanese public high school kendo teacher in Japan.

George ran Edinburgh kendo club from 2000-2003 before moving to Japan. Since moving to Japan, George has studied kendo almost exclusively under police professionals.

George will be assisted by a kendo club graduate of his school who now lives in Canada.
