Question Iaido?

Over the years, I've noticed several aikidoists also practicing iaido, the art of sword drawing. Sometimes it is taught in the dojo alongside aikido or it is taught privately by members of the dojo.

Since I don't practice this art, I'm wondering "Why iaido?". Is this an extension of sword practice or do people find this a complementary art to aikido? Does it help you stay centered?

Just wondering...

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
