Learning Iaido online is a wonderful challenge.
Iaido or Iaijutsu can be deceptively simple in its movements but like anything simple in nature there is profound depths to explore. In nature a block of green color, a leaf. Moving closer and inspecting further we can find the details. The basic components are drawing the sword (nukitsuke), cutting with the sword (kiritsuke) and symbolically removing blood (chiburui) returning the sword (noto). Learning the art of Japanese sword has a lot to offer physically and mentally.
