The MUST HAVE Iai companion,
By A Customer
This review is from: Flashing Steel: Mastering Eishin-Ryu Swordmanship (Paperback)
It's got something for everyone: If you want to look at the pictures, its got great pictures. If you are just starting Iai,it helps you remember the waza and kata. If you have got a bit of experience and want to learn something new about Iai, it has the history of swordsmanship, the beginings of Iaido, and an explaination of the importance of distance and intensity, as well as how to respond to mistakes and learn from them.
