    The North American dojo for TSKSR is in Woodinville, with Philip Relnick Sensei.

    It depends on what you mean by "near." There's quite a variety up here in the Seattle/Bellevue/Woodinville area, but not much down in Tacoma.

    Thanks for helping. You might not see it as doing much, but being willing to help goes a long way.

    Thanks on behalf of the poster.

    No, it's not really. I live 45 miles each way from where I practice, and make that drive twice a week for years.

    The Japanese sword arts, although certainly more common than they used to be, are still fairly rare and difficult to find.

    Geographically, 45 miles isn't far, but the traffic pattern for that particular route takes you through the fourth worst traffic pattern in the USA. (If you're wondering, Seattle Metro traffic is better than San Jose's, but not as bad as New York City's.) Put another way, to drive that 45 miles, you should figure two hours each way for a normal commute, and three hours on one leg of the trip if there is a minor blocking accident, construction, or a Seahawks or Mariners' game. A full blockage of the interstate of course increases travel time for the affected leg of the trip to maybe 5-6 hours one way. So, personally? I'd look at one of the many kendo and iaido clubs in Tacoma Metro and South King County. True, the local talent isn't as deep as it is in Japan or Korea, but it is comparable to BC's Lower Mainland or San Francisco Metro, and the commute is much more feasible. http://www.pnkf.org/
