Hailing from the sword techniques of Japanese samurai, iaido (ee-ay-doe) is a martial art from battle and warfare preserved for 450 years. The iaidoka (practitioner) wields a sword not to control the opponent but himself. His mind is peaceful, harmonious, and active, ready to react. MATCHA is honored to present a rare appearance of Esaka Sensei, one of Japan's finest iaidoka with a prestigious background of impressive achievements. Watch a riveting demonstration of this art form.
