Iaido

What is Iaido?

Iaido is the art of the Japanese sword, of drawing and striking in a single, smooth movement.

Using metal swords (Iaito), students learn Kata – simulated combat situations that reflect the traditional uses of the sword.

Developed four centuries ago, the art teaches the techniques and posture required to correctly handle a sword, along with developing the focus, confidence, and general well-being of the student.
