List of Iaido Waza
Iaido wazas are the most utilized form of training in the dojo. They can be started kneeling or standing and consist of drawing the sword, a striking or blocking technique, a swing to remove blood and finally returning the sword to its saya (scabbard). Wazas are also used to teach counter attacks.

Drawing/Using The Sword
- The sword (bokken, katana or wakizashi) is placed in the belt with the blade facing up.
- To draw the sword, you must first "unlock" it by pushing the tsuba with the thumb to loosen the sword.
- Next the saya is tilted outward and the hand is placed in the correct position.
- The sword is then pulled out in the way that requires keeping one hand on the saya until it is removed.
- You will then use the sword with both hands.
