Sword Experience

A life-time opportunity to experience cutting with a real Japanese sword! Do you know Iaido? Iaido is a Japanese martial art that “assumes” that you’re in front of a dangerous enemy. This martial art teaches you to be aware, capable of quickly drawing the sword and responding to a sudden attack along with the correct etiquette and postures to do it smoothly. This kind of dojos rarely allows beginners to use a Japanese sword 真剣 (Shinken). Join us to hold and use a real traditional katana!
