Auckland Iaido Club is located at 165A Pilkington Road in Panmure, Auckland. We are open to all grades and train on Thursday nights from 7 to 9.
Iaido is the art of the Japanese sword, of drawing and striking in a single, smooth movement.
Using metal swords (Iaito), students learn Kata - Simulated combat situations that reflect the traditional uses of the sword.
Developed four centuries ago, the art teaches the techniques and posture required to correctly handle a sword, along with developing the focus, confidence, and general well-being of the student.
Auckland Iaido Club trains in the dojo of the Auckland Kendo Club. The club teaches Seitei Iaido and, for higher grades, Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido. All grades are welcome to come along and practice at our weekly Thursday evening sessions from 7 to 9, 165A Pilkington Road, Panmure.
