Sapphire Blade Dojo was the Seppun Miharu dojo.

Founding Edit

The Sapphire Blade Dojo was constructed within Toshi Ranbo very shortly after the coronation of Toturi III in 1160. It was consecrated by the Hidden Guard, the Seppun family's shugenja. [1]

Sensei Edit

The first master sensei of the Dojo was the Seppun Daimyo, Seppun Kiharu. Kiharu busy agenda made that much of his duties were passed to younger sensei who focused exclusively on teaching, as the magistrate Seppun Katsura who exclusively oversaw the training of the Seppun Magistrates. The day to day administration of the dojo fell to the two senior sensei, Seppun Hiroko and Seppun Shotaru. [2]

Training Edit

Every Seppun was taught to prepare for a duel. Iaijutsu was the most common but all manner of martial conflicts were anticipated as well. Social contests were not as emphasized as the Miya or the Otomo. [3]

Legion of the Sapphire Chrysanthemum Edit

The Legion of the Sapphire Chrysanthemum were the only non-Imperiall samurai permitted to train within the dojo. [3]
