A collection of lectures, interviews and features covering a breadth of fascinating Iaido topics. Collating some of the latest materials from renowned Japanese Sensei into one volume. These articles are entirely Japanese, but are an excellent resource and opportunity for Iaidoka studying outside of Japan.

Standout features include interviews with three Sensei who are aiming for their 8-dan - Ichikawa Manabu (Tokyo), Uda Takahiro (Tokyo) and Kawaji Toshihiro (Fukuoka) - and a lecture from the ZNKR's Vice-chairman Okura Noboru "Learn Iaido with the feeling of a Samurai".

The first main feature of this collection is a commentary on the techniques of the Seitei Iaido Kata, supervised by Ogura Noboru Sensei, commentary provided by Kusama Junichi Sensei and the embu performed by Nakamura Masato Sensei. This commentary and analysis covers all twelve techniques.

The second feature takes a look at four Hanshi 8-dan judges who have sat on senior level grading panels and discusses their thoughts on what it takes to pass these exams.

At 146 pages - full-colour and, black and white features with outstanding photo quality - this publication is a pleasure to read. This is the first edition of Iaido; Tora no Maki (Scroll of the Tiger), further editions will follow each year.

Written in Japanese.

4 of 5 Limited Value to Non-Japanese Readers November 30, 2019
Reviewer: Anil Sahal from Holmfirth, West Yorkshire United Kingdom  
This publication is written entirely in Japanese, thus the benefit for those who cannot read Japanese is limited. Having said that, it is filled with serial photos of the world’s top practitioners, helpful circles and crosses and so you can learn something from this weighty magazine.

An English version would fly off the shelves and become a best-seller!
