Iaido is the traditional art of drawing the Japanese sword from it’s scabbard, striking or cutting an opponent, removing blood from the blade, and then resheathing the sword. Training is based on Muso Shinden Ryu.
Rivertide Aikikai’s Iaido Study Group is affiliated with the Kiyokaze Iaido Federation and is under the immediate supervision of Vu X. Ha Sensei of Boston Aikikai.
