Sword Seminar Pictures

Our most recent seminar, Sensei Paul's Samurai Sword seminar was a great time. The students learned a little bit about the history behind Japanese style sword work, specifically Iaido, the art of drawing the sword. Weaponry is the foundation for much of the empty hand work in different martial arts styles and its very interesting to study. We gave all of the students that attended boken (wooden swords) and taught them the importance of treating it like a real sword and to always be aware and mindful.
