Aikiken

Part of Aikido training this discipline was designed by O Sensei then later developed by Saito Sensei.

The system works by applying the principles of Aikido and thus is dissimilar to other sword arts. Its intention is to help counteract it limitations of pure open hand practices. The practices are split into Solo suburi, and partnered Kumitachi practices.

Iaido

This is the art of sword drawing an in many ways compliments aikido.

It is concerned with drawing, cutting and sheathing a sword with leathal intent. The exercises are aesetic in nature and designed to hone perfection.

"Iai" roughly translates as alert mind state, thus there is an importance to train the mind to be aware and alert. This benefits aikido training.

Mostly Iaido is performed as solo katas starting and finishing with the sword sheathed.
