What is Iaido?
Iaido is the traditional Japanese martial art of drawing and cutting with the samurai sword. The purpose of Iaido is to develop awareness, centeredness, sincerity, a calm mind, and mental and physical harmony through the practice of traditional sword techniques. It is the Japanese martial art that is most closely associated with the samurai class and Japanese nobility. It is not considered a sport, but rather a unique and ancient traditional art for the development of mind, body, and spirit. The Canadian Iaido Association (CIA) was established in 1992 to promote iaido in Canada, establish formal links with the All Japan Iaido Federation (ZNIR), to hold seminars on a regular basis with high-ranking teachers of the ZNIR, and to administer dan examinations in Canada in accordance with the standards and methods of the ZNIR.

While new students of iaidō may start learning with a wooden sword ( bokken ) depending on the teaching style of a particular instructor, many of those who study iaidō use an unsharpened sword ( iaitō ). Some advanced practitioners of iaidō use a sharpened metal sword ( shinken Because iaidō teaches the use of actual metal weaponry, it is almost entirely based on the teaching of forms, or kata . Multiple person kata do exist within some forms of iaidō, but the iaidōka (practitioners of iaidō) will usually use bokken for such kata practice. Iaidō does not include direct competition or sparring of any kind. Because of this non-competitive aspect, and iaidō's emphasis on precise, controlled, fluid motion, it is sometimes referred to as "moving

Iaido Etiquette The Iaidoka (a practitioner of iaido) wields a sword: not to control the opponent, but to control himself. Iaido is mostly performed solo as a series of Waza. The Iaidoka executes various techniques against single or multiple imaginary opponents. Each Waza begins and ends with the sword sheathed. In addition to sword technique, practitioners require imagination and concentration in order to maintain the feeling of a real fight and to keep the Kata fresh. In order to properly perform the waza, Iaidoka also learn posture and movement, grip, and swing. Iaido is never practised in a free-sparring manner. Iaidoka practice to prepare for a surprise attack, where an immediate, efficient solution to the problem of aggression is necessary. Therefore, the technique is highly refined. Every unnecessary movement is cut away. Technique is simple and direct. The training method is aimed towards development of the practitioner’s every mental and physical resources. Iaido is the art of reacting to a surprise attack by counter attacking with a sword. An in-depth reading of the Japanese characters for iaido is:

    zSB(3,3) Thinking about the practice of the Japanese martial arts style of iaido in this day and age might leave one imagining a scenario from the movie Highlander . In other words, iaido history and practice could certainly point a 21st century person's mind in the direction of a warrior unsheathing a sword in a public garage and beheading someone. Of course, practitioners of the major styles of iaido would almost certainly chuckle at such a notion. Regardless, to know iaido is to know how to draw a sword from its scabbard and cut an opponent with it, before removing blood from the weapon and putting it away again. When you think about it all with matter of fact step-by-step precision like that, things suddenly feel a little chilly, do they not? Iaido History Between the years 1546 to 1621, a man by the name of Hayashizaki Jinsuke Minamoto Shigenobu lived in what is now considered the Kanagawa prefecture of Japan. Shigenobu is the man credited with formulating and establishing the exclusive art of sword fighting that is known today as iaido. That said, it's important to note that the art of iaijutsu, a precursor to iaido, was developed by Lizasa Lenao, the founder of Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto-Ryu, almost 100 years earlier. Though Lenao's art was not exclusive to sword fighting, his style no doubt impacted the growth of iaido as an exclusive art. Furthering this notion, before taking on its modern day name, iaijutsu was the popular term for the iaido. As was customary with many martial arts names, the 17th century saw that the term "jutsu" was replaced with "do".

    Iaido - The expression of the Samurai spirit
    The Japanese sword was considered to be the symbol of a pure spirit capable of expelling the evil spirit within ourselves. Through TSIR Iaido training, practitioners learn to cultivate the focused, disciplined and fearless mindset of the samurai. Practitioners study to use effective sword techniques for life protection. Soshu Shintaku studied (in Japan) Eishin Ryu Iaido from two instructors, Ishigaki Moriji, and Hikitsuchi Sensei himself. *Moriji Sensei was an instructor of sword arts to Hikitsuchi Sensei. Once unsheathed, the Japanese sword is one of the most threatening of the weapons we study in TSIR. While all weapons must be studied seriously, the sword even moreso as it is a weapon which yields tremendous power. The proper use of this weapon requires a great deal of control and concentration. Incorrect use of katana can cause serious damage to yourself, as well as others. Potential students of Iaido will be taught to train with a calm, focused mind. Historically, the sword was more than just a weapon to the samurai. It was believed to contain special powers, and life of its own. A famous tale of two swordsmiths unfolds this way:

    JAPANESE SWORDSMANSHIP - IAIDO, IAI-JUTSU, KENDO, KENJUTSU, BATTO-JUTSU IAIDO.COM recommends the Japanese Martial Arts Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where intensive courses are offered in iaido, judo, and jujutsu (jujitsu). Kendo is practiced in a weekly workshop. See the Japanese Martial Arts Center site. IAIDO - the way of the sword, is a martial art form that began as an off-shoot of kenjutsu. It was developed as a defensive method to counter surprise attacks and enemy raids in fifteenth and sixteenth century Japan. The purpose of iaido was to slay an opponent with one stroke of the sword immediately after unsheathing it. In order to create such a defense system, situations and circumstances of surprise attacks were studied to devise a systematized way to use the sword effectively against many forms of attack.
    Hosted by Network Services Group, LLC The Japanese Sword, known as the katana , was considered the ultimate weapon of the samurai , to be used not only as a fighting tool, but also as a means of achieving enlightenment. Through incessant practice in the ways of kenjutsu , a warrior was thought to be able to shed his illusions and more clearly perceive truth. The evolution of the Japanese blade, from the early

      Iaido is a martial art from Japan that is a mastery of smooth, controlled movements that draw the practitioner's sword from its scabbard, cut the opponent, remove any blood from the blade, and replace it safely and cleanly in the scabbard. Newer students use wooden or unsharpened swords, whereas more advanced students use actual, sharp metal swords. This art is nearly exclusive in the teaching of forms over fundamentals or actual striking. Practice is performed on wooden dummies and doesn't include any kind of sparring or direct, one-on-one competition. It's more about the perfection of a controlled and fluid motion The word Iaido roughly means "the way of mental presence and immediate reaction." The art grew in its popularity as early as the 1500s. It is often confused with Kendo and Kenjutsu, but those either do not train the drawing or re-sheathing, the singular person in competition, or developing one's own method of attack. Sometimes referred to as battojutsu or iajutsu, it has been renamed with the suffix -do as many other Japanese martial arts in order to place a greater importance on the spiritual and philosophical nature of learning the art. Some have called it "moving Zen" because of the mental concentration needed to perform the perfect movement. The art's different forms are performed in solitary stance against one or many invisible, imagined enemies. Some schools will train in pairs and won't train cutting techniques.

    What is Iaido?
    Iaido is one of the Japanese traditional Budo concerned with drawing the blade and cutting in the same motion. ( Budo means martial arts or military arts in Japan). A typical form consists of the draw and cut, a finishing cut, cleaning the blade and returning it to the scabbard, all without looking away from the imaginary opponent. Most practice is solo, eventually with shin-ken (a real blade). In contrast with Kendo, Iaido is performed without protective coverings of any kind. Students must strive to achieve power, precision and perfection in their form. Along the way they learn balance, grace, and control both of the body and the mind. Iaido dealt more with everyday situation rather than those on the battlefield. The term "Iai" is taken from the Japanese phrase: "Tsune ni ite, kyu ni awasu"
