Iaido is the Japanese art of drawing the long sword. Basic iaido kata combines drawing the sword with either a defensive block or cut, usually followed by another cut, then chiburi (moving the blade in such as way as to remove blood) and noto (returning the blade to the scabbard).
Iaido is used not only to teach techniques, but as a form of mental and physical discipline, emphasizing correct technique, meditation and character development.
Because kata are performed against one or more imaginary opponents and its emphasis on precise, controlled, fluid motion, iaido is sometimes referred to as "moving Zen."
