Our classes are based on our philosophy of developing a students mind, body and spirit through structured lessons teaching preparation and etiquette (saho and reiho), fundamentals (kihon), techniques (waza) and kumitachi (crossing swords).

The study of our art does not end with a 'black belt' grading. As Iaidoka (students of Iaido) we strive to perfect our techniques over a lifetime of dedication and commitment understanding that we can always be better tomorrow than we are today.
