What is Iaido

Iaido is the art of swift drawing of the sword and contra-attack in one fluid movement, in response to an unforeseen attack from an opponent. The purpose of mastering this art in ancient Japan was to train in self defence in case of a sudden attack during everyday activities.

The effectiveness of the defence in such a situation was primarily dependent on the exactness and precision of judging distance, an intuitive perception of the direction of the attack and the perfection of the execution of the technique all intimately linked with a complete mind-body unification.

Similarly to other traditional Japanese martial arts containing the element "do", which means "way", in their name, the purpose of training in this martial art is not to learn to kill but for spiritual growth and development. Training provides a "way" for constant growth and development of the mind-body unification, and the perfection of gracefulness of movements, technique and inner harmony.

Keeping in mind the aims that students of the art of iaido, Budostuff is very pleased to be able to offer you high quality uniforms, Japanese swords, and iaido accessories made in Japan, using Japanese quality materials and according to traditional methods. We are completely certain that you will be pleased with the excellent quality of the iaido gear offered by Budostuff and that you will be able to find something of interest to you.
