Welcome to the website of Seiun-Iai!
We practice “Iai”. “Iai” is one of Japanese
traditional martial arts and a technique to use a Japanese sword effectively
Our school is, however, not traditional but
contemporary. Although our technique is based on the traditional one, it also
includes the different elements of other actions. For example, those of Karate
and of sword battle(“Tate”).
What’s more, you can choose your favorites
from about 100 parts of our technique, “customize” them, and make your own
Besides, We sometimes collaborate with
Japanese traditional musical instruments, such as “Biwa”, “Hue”, and “Tuzumi”. It’s
really artistic, isn’t it?
Come and join us in Seiun-Iai. We practice on every Saturday evening (7-9 pm) at Matsugami elementary
school gymnasium in Katsushika ward, Tokyo. See the map here .
