Dojo Leader Jeff Bishop

Our Dojo is led by Jeff Bishop, Godan Dan Renshi Aikido, who began his martial arts training with judo and karate in the early 70's. His exploration of martial arts led him to aikido In 1983, in which he found a strong affinity. Jeff continues training and teaching today with Bukonkai which he opened in 2011, after many years of training with some of the best Aikido teachers in the UK as well as Japan. Jeff began training in Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu after meeting Carl Long Hanshi in 2011. Since then he has attended seminars led by Hanshi Long in the UK, Europe and the USA, and has demonstrated iai with the KNBK at the World Butokusai in Japan. Jeff currently holds a Nidan rank in Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu.
