The Making of Shōgun – Chapter One: Honoring Authenticity | FX)



FX's 2024 mini-series Shogun is the most recent adapation of the 1975 novel of the same name by James Clavel. Vancouver Rishin Ryu Iaido Club (Esaka Dojo Vancouver) worked on the production of FX's 2024 Shogun as BG, SAE, stunt performers, cast and instructors of the swordmanship. 

The club and its members on set dedicated at the highest level to bring forth the historical accuracy of swordmanship. We want to express gratitude to the participated club members and celebrate this unique experience of passing authentic iaido knowledge to a broader community and audience. 


Set to be in the 17th Century, the production of this drama piece pursues a high degree of accuracy on the handling of Japanese swords worn by the actors and stunts. Iaido's historical teaching linage is set as a formal referece. In particular, the wearing, drawing, martial movesets, and sheathing, as captured in details in many scenes, are the main focus of the club's consultation role. 


Many of our talented members also participated as actors and stunts, bringing their own talent and other forms of martial arts training to this production.

It is a pleasure and honor to work with other Vancouver martial arts groups on the 2024 SHŌGUN production together. It is truly amazing to see a connected dedication to martial arts from different local schools of training, each bringing their own historical lineage to set. 

Thank you all for the collaboration and the SHŌGUN team that made it possible.

Please watch for members of our club to appear in the show when it comes out and for more information about the Vancouver Eishin Ryu Iaido Club, please contact us at:
