Hontai Yoshin Ryu UK - Barnstaple Dojo
The dojo is in the Pilton area of Barnstaple.
Training is lead by Sensei Dave Malvern, 4th Dan, assisted by Dean Shanley, 3rd Dan and David Richardson, 1st Dan.
Dave Malvern also holds 2nd Dan in Iai jutsu and the club has a good balance between open-hand, sword and weapons training.
Over the years, his work has placed him in London for large periods of time where he is one of the assistant instructors at the Budokwai under Dr Mike McClure. He continues this role whenever work allows.
Although the dojo has only recently been opened, for nearly 10 years there have been students in Devon studying Hontai Yoshin Ryu weapons, with regular visits from Budokwai members and teachers.Further information:
