Iaido at The Dojo The Dojo 3 Photo

Nishio Sensei developed a new form of Iaido called Aikido Toho Iai which illuminates the deep relationship between the katana (Japanese sword) and techniques in Aikido. Aiki Toho Iai continues to evolve in the hands of Nishio’s successor, Koji Yoshida, who continues to focus on this methods which is thoroughly rooted in the traditional use of the katana. For example, Nishio’s sword work is otonashi or silent, meaning the contact between blades minimal and movements are done in the gaps of the opponents attack.
