Iaijutsu (居合術, Art of Drawing the Sword ) is a traditional Japanese school of swordsmanship that focuses primarily on drawing the sword in such a way that it can actually be used as a combative art. Iaido is primarily used as a feigning technique, meant to surprise an opponent before using more traditional Kenjutsu to deal damage, or Kendo to finish an opponent off. It can also be used as a disarming technique, for example, drawing his sword so fast, you can strike you target with the hilt, knocking the wind out of them and taking them out of a fight before the fight really begins.
