Last weekend, our dojo hosted a seminar featuring instruction from Takashi Ishikawa Sensei, 6th Dan. Aside from the general movement exercises, smooth techniques and focus on bokken and jo kata, Ishikawa Sensei spent the last 30 minutes of the class showing Iaido kata. It was quite impressive to see a master of Iaido showing and explaining the subtle movements and reasons for the sword kata.
Ishikawa Sensei apparently visits our dojo every few years, and this was, I believe, his 3rd visit. I look forward to his next seminar.
