Beginning Iaido

To start Iaido, you very simply need loose clothing and a positive attitude.  Volleyball-type kneepads are highly recommend though not necessary for the first few classes.  For beginners, practice swords can be borrowed for the first few classes. 

At present, students may start at any time; however, it is recommended that you contact the dojo before coming out so that any questions can be answered and so that we know to expect you.

If you currently have apparel for Iaido, please bring it with you.  If you have your own sword, please let us know and we will inspect it to be sure it is safe and suitable for practice.

Please see the FAQ for additional questions and information.
