Seitei Iaido is a modern martial art form of Japanese fencing that involves the practice of solo kata using an iaito (aluminum alloy practice sword) or bokuto (wooden sword). The focus is on drawing from the saya (sheath) and striking/cutting with the sword (nukitsuke). There are 12 kata that are taught as the curriculum. Practice also involves learning Kendo kata, fixed paired patterns of techniques. Iaido training develops awareness, concentration, and discipline.
