Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, the Rivonia Kendo Club (RKC) is a professional martial arts institution, offering the Japanese Martial Arts of Kendo, Iaido & Jodo.
Iaido is the Japanese art of drawing, cutting, and resheathing the katana. It places a great emphasis on correctness of form, precision and efficiency of movement, and mental focus.
Why do Iaido?
There are many reasons why people do iai, but here are some of the most common:
- to develop their powers of mental concentration;
- to train their bodies at their own pace;
- to help maintain a cultural tradition dating back hundreds of years;
- as a form of “moving meditation”.
