Details

’IAI-DO’ is Japanese martial art which is associated with the smooth, controlled movements of drawing ‘Katana- Japanese sword’ from its ‘Saya (scabbard)’, striking or cutting an opponent and replacing ‘Katana- Japanese sword’ in the ‘Saya (scabbard)’. It emerged in the Muromachi period (1333-1573). The object of ’IAI-DO’ is to learn to draw a sword in an instant to overcome an opponent. It is also a way to train the mind and body through developing a spiritual appreciation of the relationship between life and death, movement and stillness. In this workshop, participants will learn the movements, using ‘Mogito (replica sword)’ which look like real ‘Katana- Japanese sword’ from a genuine Master of ‘Katana’ from the International ’IAI-DO’ Organization, ‘’HOUGYOKU-KAI鵬玉会 and have unique opportunity to experience a spirit of ‘Samurai’.
