Nintai Martial Arts & Wellness
Battodo (translates literally as “way of drawing the sword”) is a close cousin of iaido, both of which are descended from battojutsu and iaijutsu, respectively. These arts all involve learning to draw a katana from its scabbard, strike the target, and return the weapon to its original place in the fastest and smoothest way possible. But the element ‘DO’ (way) refers more to the understanding that the benefits of battodo training should go far beyond the physical. Working with a blade should sharpen the practitioner’s mental focus and strengthen their spirit. In our practice of battodo we explore and build on this connectedness between body, mind and sword.
