I changed the design, but not the content, in line with the previous change of my aikido pages.


November 13, 2007:
I added a webpage about how to buy a shinken, a sharp steel katana sword. It is here.


September 20, 2007:
I changed the design, but not the content. Mainly, I added the top image, and modified the webpages some.


March 11, 2006:
I have removed the Guest Book. It was flooded with advertisements. If you want to comment something on this website, please use the Visitor response form.


December 27, 2005:
I have added a 3 minute iai video to the solo video clips, where I do some iai forms from here and there. See video clips. Direct link to the new video clip: iai-video


November 22, 2004:
Duo video clips have been added, of the Aikibatto partner exercises, where both have bokken. Duo video clips. Accordingly, the solo video clip page has been edited slightly.

November 9, 2001:
Correction of kote chudan and kote jodan, in both the ken and jo forms, as to specifying uke's cut. It is not necessary to specify whether it be men, chudan or gedan in the following movements: kote chudan, sword exercise frame 6, jo exercise frame 7, kote jodan, sword exercise frame 4, jo exercise frame 4. Detailed comment of kote jodan sword exercise has been corrected accordingly.

Addition of the term habaki (metal collar on the base of the blade, to make it fit and stick to the scabbard) in the glossary.


October 17, 2001:
Correction of the translation of iaido (the way of joining with being, also implying sitting), according to authorities on iaido-L. In the text on basics and the glossary.

Jo exercise 5, clarifying on movement 5: "jodan kamae as with a sword".


May 12, 2001:
Jo exercises, corresponding to the ten Aikibatto sword exercises, added.
This page, formerly named "Corrections" was therefore renamed "Corrections and additions"


February 19, 2001:
Commentary chapter renamed Details, in all exercises. I simply believe that the headline Details is more accurate for the content.

Guestbook added.
