Iaido lessons are available
Nihon Iaido ("Japanese sword drawing way") is studied in conjunction with Aikijujutsu, but may be studied as a stand-alone art by interested students, as separate rank is awarded in our Nihon Iaido curriculum.
Our Iaido is a modern (gendai) curriculum of traditional Japanese sword-drawing that is based on the Toyama-ryu, and Dai Nippon Batto-ho systems. All techniques are performed from a standing position, making the art suitable for those who have difficulty kneeling. In addition to solo sword-drawing techniques, the curriculum also includes paired sword forms with a partner (kenjutsu). Students also practice test cutting with live blades (tameshigiri / suemonogiri) to refine their skill with the sword.
