IAI-DO (The Art of Samurai Sword)
Iai-Do (Samurai Swordsmanship) is the system of drawing the sword, cutting and returning the sword to the scabbard in a series of smooth, well-defined movements. The Iai-Do practitioner can also develop a strong spirit, improved posture, muscle flexibility and a strong degree of control over his/her emotions. Our school emphasizes two training methods to make Iai-Do techniques more realistic and effective. One of them is traditional Kata [Form] training and the other is Kumitachi or tachiuchi [prearranged sparring] training.
