Nichibukan Iaidō

Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido in New York City and New Jersey

What is Iaido?

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.
