Begin your lesson with an introduction to iaido from an experienced master. Placing emphasis on awareness and the ability to quickly draw the sword and respond to sudden attacks, iaido subscribes to non-combative aims and is regarded as a defensive art. Your instructor demonstrates several techniques of the precise and graceful sport before leading you step-by-step through basic maneuvers.

Learn how to handle a real iaido sword, and the different ways in which it can be drawn from the sheath. Also take the rare opportunity to try real cutting techniques on bamboo and straw forms, following careful instruction from your master. After spending time practicing this beautiful art form, leave your lesson with new knowledge and a fresh interest in Japanese martial arts.
