In April 2019 I visited Ishido Sensei in Kawasaki and asked him about re-organizing the Monjin system under Ishido Sensei. By this time, Chris Mansfield and Len Bean had left the Ishido group so it was time to revise the Dojo organization under Ishido Sensei.
He decided to use the classical term “Jikimon” (直門), which he found in the old Muso Shinden Jushin Ryu writings that were given from each teacher to their most trusted students.
The following persons were appointed as Jikimon in Europe:
Jock Hopson (Iaido Kyoshi 7 Dan, Jodo Kyoshi 7 Dan, Kendo Kyoshi 7 Dan)
Vic Cook (Iaido Kyoshi 7 Dan, Jodo 5 Dan, Kendo 4 Dan)
Lee Loi (Iaido Renshi 7 Dan, Jodo Renshi 7 Dan)
Louis Vitalis (Iaido Kyoshi 7 Dan, Jodo Kyoshi 7 Dan, Kendo Kyoshi 7 Dan)
Takao Momiyama (Iaido Kyoshi 7 Dan, Jodo Renshi 7 Dan, Kendo 5 Dan)
Andy Watson (Iaido Renshi 7 Dan, Jodo Renshi 7 Dan)
Dominique Losson (Iaido Renshi 6 Dan, Jodo 5 Dan)
