Koryū iaido

Ko-ryū (古流) literally translates as "old school" (ko—old, ryū—school) or "traditional school". We are a traditional school of Japanese swordsmanship.

Our Philosophy

Iaidō (居合道) is a Japanese martial art that is concerned with relationships between people with an emphasis on awareness and being capable of quickly drawing the sword in response to a sudden attack.
