It is a real-world, self-defense system that is so simple it's difficult. Aikido is an art that seeks to harmonize with the opponent's energy and use it against him.

Iaido techniques are real, samurai techniques developed and proven in battle over hundreds of years in feudal Japan. Iaido is the art of smoothly drawing the sword, cutting the opponent, removing the blood and returning the sword to its sheath.
