After returning from Japan in the mid 70's, Paul Maloney Sensei set up a small group to study Jodo in Sydney.
Over the year, many of the members have had the great privilege to study under some of the best senior teachers in the world when they have visited Australia for seminars and Gasshuku. Australian visits in chronological order - Senseis' Kaminoda, Chambers, Nishioka, Relnick & Krieger.
Likewise when visiting overseas, it is always an educational experience and a time to upskill one's techniques.
Shinto Muso Ryu Jo is studied across Australia as a classical tradition (Koyru) in several capital cities. A condensed version of 12 kata is practiced by the Kendo Federation members as well. Jodo Kai Australia is an independent group with affiliations overseas.
