What is Iaido ?
It is said that the birth of Iaido was during the Warring States period in Japan. It was learned as a technique by samurai to protect themselves in order to survive in battle.
Many people are also learning in modern times this movement of the body called "kata." It is utilized in other Japanese martial arts such as kendo and judo, and also applied to self-defense.
Anything is used as a weapon
Anything is used as a weapon
Samurai most often fought enemies with Japanese swords in battle, but it is said that they first practiced using a folding fan as a substitute for a sword.
In addition, there is also a tradition that Jubei Yagyu, who is one of the masters of swords in Japanese history, used a folding fan in actual battle.
The feature of Iaido is that you can use whatever you have around you as a weapon and adapt to any situation.
