Iaido, art of japanese fencing
We practice Iaido in the heart of Hamburg (Barmbek) in a bright, friendly hall. We learn Iaido together during katatraining. With an active trainer you can expect progress quickly. Our members look forward to your visit!
You start learning with a bokken. This wooden swordcopy is cheap and easy to handle. You do not need special clothes at the beginning. First, you learn basic skills. Through that, physical strength, flexibility and your balance increase. You get more experience after having bought an iaito (training sword). Many different kata accompany the training. A kata is a short motion sequence, which corresponds to a real fight.
At the beginning you learn 12 forms of the Seitei-Iai. These forms provide to build up all necessary basics and knowledge. Later you get deeper insight by practicing the forms of Muso Shinden Ryu. It offers 3 stages of understanding.
