Iaido and Aikido

So how many people practice both? I know lots do.

In the UK if you're looking for an Iaido class you probably would be better off either looking for either an aikido or kendo dojo in your area and asking them

Speaking of which does anyone know of any Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido teachers in Scotland?

And it's certainly not just the UK where that is true.

I've done both, and simultaneously for some time, and I'm inclined to broaden the question a bit. It's always struck me that doing a gendai art like aikido, with a prominent and modern philosophical content, is a bit of a contrast to training in a koryu art (assuming your iai is koryu, I suppose). The kendo folks always had a clear rationale for including kendo no kata and iai training - the old fogies (reasonably) observed that the uppity youths weren't real clear on the handling of a sword after all that shinai work (and enrollment in their koryu dojo was declining, too). I know lots of people like to talk about how "aikido came from the sword" and all, but I wonder what folks perceive they take out of such dual training.

That'd be really great, thanks! I'm missing my Iaido while I'm stuck up here in Aberdeen, so I'll take as much as I can get
