ABOUT JSSC

The Japanese Sword Society of Canada (JSSC) is mostly an educational, non-profit organization located in Barrie , Ontario , Canada. It was founded in 1965 by its President Fred Fimio and Incorporated in 1976. 

The society, with close connections with both the NBTHK and the NTHK of Japan, is dedicated to the preservation and edification of the Japanese sword as a work of art.

The society's main endeavor is toward the education of its members through correspondence courses, planned seminars, meetings and informative, educational quarterly sword journal Published and Edited by Fred Fimio.

The JSSC also provides information regarding instructive books on sword, shows and show dates of other sword societies.

In previous years the society hosted three very successful international shows. People came from all over the world, i.e. China , Australia , South America .  The JSSC hopes to continue this trend with the assistance of member volunteers.

The quarterly sword journal includes a Sword Quiz, reviews of shows and exhibits, sword discussions, articles submitted by members and much, much more.
