Samurai Swordsmanship 101: Traditional Martial Arts for the Modern Age

Friday 16:45 

Meeting Room D

Being a samurai in ancient Japan was not easy. Tasked to defend their masters from uprisings, assassinations, and simply daily unrest, makes the occasional trucker convoy seem insignificant. And yet, the mental and physical stresses we face in modern life are strangely comparable.
In this workshop, we’ll introduce the traditional martial art of Iaido: The art of sword drawing. You’ll get to practice techniques using a training (wood) sword as designed for real historical scenarios, and gain a better appreciation for how to apply these lessons to your daily life.
