Iaido is used widely as a martial art that is used by both men and women of all ages to train their mind and body and to lead their daily lives because they use their mind and body reasonably.

You can learn and practice not only the technical aspects of Iaido but also the works that can be used in daily life, and the spirit of "non-combatable technology."

Many people can experience it regardless of age or sex.

Iaido is a martial art that allows anyone, young or old, to participate because it is a method of rationally manipulating the body and mind and does not rely on muscle strength. Even people who are not confident in their physical strength can cultivate their physical strength and sense of balance by reasonably repeating daily activities such as sitting and standing. In addition, shaking the sword with the whole body improves the muscle strength of the whole body.
The practice of Iaido is to repeat the "shape" that has been passed down from ancient times. In the process, you can improve your mental strength by gaining self-esteem and training your mental movements such as imagination about virtual enemies and danger. By gaining this power, you may see yourself a little different from usual.
