Iaijutsu is a combative sword-drawing art but not necessarily an aggressive art because iaijutsu is also a counterattack-oriented art. Iaijutsu technique may be used aggressively to wage a premeditated surprise attack against an unsuspecting enemy.The formulation of iaijutsu as a component system of classical bujutsu was made less for the dynamic situations of the battlefield than for the relatively static applications of the warrior's daily life off the field of battle.

You have to attend one of the classes of Phil Sensei and get started. All you have to do is to join the practice.
Of course. This is the art of Japanese Swordsmanship. As a beginner we do not suggest that you buy your own sword yet. We have many wooden swords that you can use for practice in our lessons. When you gain experience you can buy your own sword for practice and mat cutting exercises.
We suggest you come to the first lesson with training suits. Street clothes are not allowed on the mat. If you decide to practice this art than you can buy your own DOGI (clothes of the Art).
Of course. Women, children can also practice this art. Adult and children classes are on different times.
Iaido requires extreme precision of its techniques and demands tremendous concentration during practice-both of which ask a great deal of self-discipline and sincere personal commitment on the part of the student in order to master. As a reward for these efforts, it can offer the individual a lifetime of physical, mental, and spiritual growth, as well as an enlightened and peaceful state of mind.
Come join us during one of Phil Sensei's lessons and you will find tranquility with the art of Iaijutsu and forget about the daily stress and problems on our mats.
