Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido in New York City and New Jersey
Iaido is the art of drawing the sword. Students learn prearranged solo exercises of great precision called kata, which involve drawing the sword, blocking an attack, delivering a counter-attack, and returning the sword to its scabbard.
Visitors are welcome to come and watch a class, at no charge. If you want to try an introductory class, or for an explanation of class fees, please ask the instructor. For more information, contact:firstname.lastname@example.org
