but iaido folks don't like you doing that though, because you don't look good that way. and good looking while drawing the sword to cut some bugger(s) is paramount for iaido, right? remember, that we, asian, looked good naturally so you have more works cut out for you.
Please keep in mind with us Scots it is really hard to look good pulling a 6 to 10 lb 55 inch Claymore longsword off your back while wearing a short skirt in a muddy field. Of course the blue paint helped.....
