Section Iaido

The Way of Harmony in Existence

The iai is practiced in the form of kata composed of four movements: the nukitsuke (the draw), the kiritsuke (the cut), the chiburi (the cleaning of the blade by shaking) and the notô (the rewrapping).


 
These kata are made from a sitting or standing position, according to the techniques. The practice of iai proper (solitary practice) amounts to about 70% of the work. The work of kenjutsu at 28%, so as to allow the practitioner to experience the work for two. Once a year, in order to test the techniques carried out alone throughout the year, the section of the SDK organizes a stage of cuts (tameshigiri) on the shore of Lake Biel. On this occasion, braided and moistened beach mats are available to practitioners to test their art.

Arts martiaux à Genève : Closure of the Dojo Liotard during the holidays

After the water damage at the Liotard Dojo, the city decided to close the dojo completely during the holiday period in order to replace the floor.

This does not mean the end of the training because most sections have introduced alternatives (including other training places) to continue the courses!

We invite you to contact your section representatives to find out what your section has set up.

If some of you would like to get business in their lockers before the start of the work and the complete closure of the dojo, we invite them to do so before the end of this week!
