Iaido at Byakkokan Dojo Byakkokan Dojo 1 Photo

Class is broken down in 3 aspects:

  • Kata is the practice of basics and forms;
  • Tameshigiri (or test cutting), in Toyama Ryu Batto Jutsu, is to test the cutting ability of the sword, gain experience in striking a solid object and improve timing, distance, angle and grip;
  • Gekken is free play or sparring. We use foam swords, but although they do use foam, they are not flexy or soft. They have a dense center and can do some damage and understand gekken is not for everyone.
