Sensei Michael, travelled to Essex to conduct an Iaido Course for our friend Sensei Ian Arbon at Wakarishin Ju-Jitsu.
The course was well attended and the students were instructed in the following areas of Iaido practice:

The 4 main elements of Iaido – Nukitsuke, (Draw) Kiritsuke, (Cut) Chiburi (Shake Blood) & Noto (Re-Sheath)

All the attendees thoroughly enjoyed the course and Sensei Michael has received great positive feedback from Sensei Ian and his students.
