Palmetto Knights present: Iaijutsu and Kenjutsu (Japanese Sword)
Iaijutsu is a combative sword-drawing art. The formulation of iaijutsu as a component system of classical bujutsu was made less for the dynamic situations of the battlefield than for the relatively static applications of the warrior's daily life off the field of battle. Kenjutsu is the combative art of fighting with the sword after it is drawn. This was either in duels or in battle. The development of classical kenjutsu was designed to be used in and out of armor. We will be demonstrating techniques from Mugai Ryu and Katori Shinto Ryu.
