Charity

Community Spirit

Good Day,

     Part of Martial Arts Training, and Black Belt Spirit, is the Discipline and Generosity to Help our Community.  Over the last 18 years, Golden Crane has raised food donations for the Food Bank many times to facilitate this understanding and training. 

     This year, Kyoshi and I would like to, once again, extend to you the opportunity to make a monetary donation to the NH. Food Bank.  We have chosen a monetary donation in lieu of goods so the food bank can purchase what they need rather than use what they have.  Any left over funds can be used to purchase food at other times of the year rather than just for the holidays.

     Please leave a cash or check donation in our Dojo Office.  (If paying by check, please make it out to the NH Food Bank so you may deduct it from your taxes.)  

     Last year Golden Crane raised $1769!!!  THANK YOU!!!  We would like to beat that goal!!!  

     Please go to www.nhfoodbank.org for more information about the Food Bank.  Our fundraiser will be active from Thursday, Dec. 1st to Thursday, Dec. 15th.

     Please give generously. 

     Thank you! Kyoshi and Shihan

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).
