Ramon Lawrence - Iaido and Jodo Renshi
My original martial art was Judo, which I started in February 1967 and retired from (after a spinal injury caused at work) in 1983.
I started Jishukan Ryu Jujitsu in 1978.
I am one of the founding members of the West Australian Kendo Renmei, for Kendo (1986), Iaido (1990), and Jodo (1993).
I started Tamyiya Ryu Iaijutsu in 1999.
I commenced training in Kyudo in 2011.
