Suzuki Sensei first started in budo with the study of Wado Ryu karate-do, training under legendary experts in Japan. He rose through the kyu ranks, eventually earning black belt degrees in Wado Ryu before deciding to devote all his efforts to Japanese swordsmanship. He has become one of the highest ranking teachers of iaido (battodo) in the world.

The images above are of Suzuki Sensei and Guy Power Sensei in Japan many years ago. Power Sensei is one of two Directors of the SMAA Iaido Division, and he has received a seventh dan from the International Iai-Battodo Federation in Japan, and a seventh dan and Shihan teaching certificate from the SMAA.
