I had a lot of fun at my first Iaido lesson today. I think this might be the prefect thing for me.

@matzekult I was looking for something that trains body tension and control as well as mental discipline. And I also like Katana ofc.

@map Interesting, just haven't seen a lot of people actually try Iaido.

@matzekult it's a bit like dancing or yoga in a way.

@matzekult Ha! You are the third follower on here that did or does. So it seems to be popular with that crowd at least. ;)

@map I did it while I was still doing Aikido but unfortunately not a lot of people were interested so they stopped offering the training. But nice to see that it is at least more popular here 😁
