2. What is iaido?
Iaido is the art of drawing and attacking with a sword. "Iai" is composed of the characters "i(ru)" (to be, to stay in, to sit, to remain seated) and "a(u)" (to come together, to meet, to harmonize). There is some debate among experts as to how and why the term "iai" came to refer to drawing the sword. One school of thought contends the terms originated with the practice of drawing the sword while seated, which had no practical value in traditional times, since samurai did not wear their long swords while seated. Another possibility is that "iai" was adopted for this purpose to connote the idea of handling an opponent instantly and without moving from the spot on which one is attacked. Iaidoka (and kendoka) wield a sword not to control their opponent, but to control themselves. Iaido is mostly performed solo as a series of kata, executing varied techniques against single or multiple imaginary opponents. Each kata begins and ends with the sword sheathed. In addition to sword technique, it requires imagination and concentration in order to maintain the feeling of a real fight and to keep the kata fresh. Iaidoka are often recommended to practice kendo to preserve that fighting feel; it is common for high ranking kendoka to hold high rank in iaido and vice versa. In order to properly perform the kata, iaidoka also learn posture and movement, grip and swing. Sometimes iaidoka will practice partner kata similar to kendo or kenjutsu kata. Unlike kendo, iaido is never practised in a free-sparring manner.

10. Boston Iaido
iaido consists of a number of techniques, or waza, that represent combative situations where generally one or more opponents initiate an attack.
Iaido, the Way of the Sword, is the art of drawing and using the traditional Japanese sword. Iaido was
practiced by the ancient Samurai for centuries.
Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido
Iaido consists of a number of techniques, or waza, that represent combative situations where generally one or more opponents initiate an attack. Although the waza represent combative encounters, the deeper purposes of iaido are to develop mental discipline, awareness, and mental and physical harmony through practice and control of body and sword movements. Iaido is not considered a sport, but rather an ancient traditional art based on a unique oral tradition for the development of mind, body, and spirit. This art form has been passed from teachers to students in an unbroken line over hundreds of years, so it is the responsibility of each practitioner to learn and practice the techniques correctly so that the tradition is preserved and can be passed on intact to the next generation. Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu, meaning "peerless, direct transmission, true faith style", is the most widely practiced style of Iaido in Japan. It has a lineage of roughly 450 years, making it the second oldest martial art form in Japan.

Studying the Japanese sword arts of Kendo Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido and ZNKR Iaido
Location: 138 Main Street in Acton, MA. Kendo is the art of Japanese fencing. The art is practiced with Japanese fencing armor called "Bogu" and with a bamboo sword called a "shinai". The training for kendo is very intense. Iaido is the art of drawing the Japanese sword. Students do not make contact in this art, but visualize imaginary opponents while performing different attacking and defending senarios. Both the arts of kendo and iaido can be defined in this "Concept of Kendo" established by the All Japan Kendo Federation in 1975: The purpose of practicing kendo is: To mold the mind and body, To cultivate a vigorous spirit through correct and rigid training, To strive for improvement in the art of kendo, To hold in esteeem human courtesy and honor, To associate with others with sincerity, And to forever pursue the cultivation of oneself.

I aido is the art of drawing and cutting with the Japanese sword. It is one of many martial arts that the Samurai studied. Classes consist of traditional katas from the Daito Mushin Ryu, Tameshigeri (cutting practice) and related training with wooden weapons, including bokken (wooden sword), wakisashi (short sword), tanto (dagger), nito-ryu (two swords), jo (short staff) and variations against one another.
  • A false sword builds a false spirit. Weapons training is essential. You must not be a danger to yourself or others.
Swords used in the study of Daito Mushin Ryu are live blades, meaning they are sharp. In the past, only Shinken, true hand forged Japanese swords, were allowed. Today some flexibility has been introduced due to the increasing cost and limited availibility of Shinken. Modern blades must be approved by the Iaido Sensei. Generally speaking, you must train with a sword that you respect. The use of bokken is allowed in lieu of a live blade. In this instance one is not pretending that they are using a live blade, but are being honest about what they are training with.
