Our Intro Class is mandatory for all new students. This Class will prepare you with the basic skills of handling a Japanese sword (how to hold, stand, cut and dojo etiquette), so you can attend regular classes without disrupting our full time students. Even if you’ve studied a different Ryu (style) of Iaido, you are still required to take this class – Ryushin Shouchi Ryu is very different compared to other systems.
