Ninja-Iai: Iaijutsu Quick Draw Training Drills with Kodachi (Ninjato) | Ninjutsu, Bujutsu, Kobujutsu
In this video I demonstrate a basic iai (iaido) sword drawing training drill to help develop the skills needed to be proficient in iaijutsu. In this drill I am using a kodachi (ninjato) because the ryuha that we are training in has a strong focus on the use of the short sword.
The training (keiko) of Iai/iaido/iaijutsu is to be able to respond quickly to a unexpected attack efficiently. This is a skill-set that is highly needed in today’s world of self-defense, as these same skills can be equally used in the use of concealed carry with edged weapons for self-defense / self-protection.
This lesson is directly for the practitioners of the ancient Japanese koryu martial arts of the ninja and samurai, such as ninjutsu (ninpo) and bujutsu (budo).
