Offering Classes in the Classical Art of the Japanese Sword.

What is Iaido?

     Iaidō is a Japanese martial art that emphasizes being aware and capable of quickly drawing the sword and responding to sudden attacks.

     Iaido consists of four main components, as practiced in the Kata (Solo Forms): the smooth, controlled movements of drawing the sword, striking or cutting an opponent, cleaning the blade, and resheathing the sword in the scabbard.

     In Iaido, the emphasis is on precise, controlled, fluid motions. This art is sometimes referred to as "moving Zen (meditation). 

     New students begin their practice of Iaido with a wooden sword (bokken). With time, these students will begin to practice using a blunt-edged sword called an iaitō. Only at the top levels of experience will iaido practitioners use a sharp-edged sword (shinken).

Open to Golden Crane Students, and Non Students...

IAIDO PROGRAM - No previous martial arts experience needed! Classes are designed for Adult, and Teens (ages 12 years and above).

This class will teach the sword style of Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido, as well as reinforce the use of the Japanese Sword through learning 'Kendo Kata', working on Partner Drills, and Tameshigiri (the art of cutting targets).


Classes will be held weekly, on Tuesday evenings, beginning Jan. 3, 2023,
