Welcome to the Brussels Yaegaki-Kai

The Brussels Yaegaki Kai is an Iaido (居合道) dojo located in Brussels (Uccle) Belgium. We hope that this website will promote the development of Iaido. A Japanese martial art coming directly from the samurai-time.

The Brussels Yaegaki Kai - Iaido Club Ucclois is an affiliate of the All Belgium Kendo Federation (ABKF), which itself is part of the International Kendo Federation (IKF). Membership in the Brussels Yaegaki Kai dojo is open to anyone interested in learning Iaido and all skill levels are welcome. View our training hours page.

Happy BDay BYK – 20 Years

Covid-19 Confinement will not allow us to celebrate the BYK 20 years in the best way we can and our sensei Oda senei will miss us for this important milestone in our dojo history. But Party will gon on … Just a bit postponed. May the sword be with you 🙂

Oda Sensei

It is with very deep sadness that we inform you that our sensei, Oda Katsuo Iaido 8th Dan Hanshi & Kendo 7th Dan Kyoshi passed away yesterday.

He was way more than a sensei for us, he was the heart of our loving Eishin family. A grandfather, an uncle, a brother, a friend. Giving hard lessons in the dojo but always ready for a friendly Dai ni dojo full of joy, sharing stories and simple moments of nominication.

He will always be in our heart and his teaching will be forever with us in our daily practice and life. He was more than doing Iaido and kendo, he was living them. There would be so many things to say but no words will be enough. For all of those who knew him it is a terrible loss and pain.

He was fantastic. Goodbye sensei you will live forever in our heart boss. He was the boss. He was our boss.
