What in the world is Iai?
Picture yourself whooping butt with a Samurai Sword and you’ve got it.
Iaido is the way of the warrior, using traditional sword techniques of the samurais who ruled Japan during the Tokugawa Period. Essentially, Iaido is to draw the sword, defeat your opponent, and re-sheathe the sword.
This practice retains Japanese tradition and is a safe means of learning sword techniques. In this class, you’ll practice these techniques, which are meant to help attain a meditative mindfulness and achieve aesthetic expression. All the while, you will retain the sword's deadly practicality.
