Iai (居合)

Iai is the practice of drawing with the smooth controlled movements of the sword from its scabbard or saya, striking or cutting an opponent, removing blood from the blade, and then replacing the sword in the scabbard. While new practitioners of iai start learning with a wooden sword (bokken) until they are experienced then they can use a blunt edged sword, called Iaito .
And it promotes  balance ,concentration ,coordination and proper Samurai  movement .
