Capabilities

The user has an innate knowledge of iaido, a type of swordsmanship that emphasizes being aware and capable of quickly drawing the sword with precision and responding to a sudden attack.

Applications

  • Countering Intuition - While Iaido is a combative sword-drawing art it is not necessarily an aggressive art because iaido itself is also a counterattack-oriented art.
  • Delayed Effect - Depending on the skill of a user, their strike can occur much later with devastating effect.
  • Enhanced Dexterity - Iaido techniques mainly consists of smooth, controlled dexterity movements in fast-drawing the sword from its scabbard, striking or cutting an opponent, removing blood from the blade, and then replacing the sword in the scabbard.
  • Enhanced Precision - The art of Iaido emphasizes developing precision in its swordsmanship. Iaido masters can perform sword strikes that are more focused and effective than ordinary swordsmanship performed with a drawn sword.
  • Enhanced Quick-Draw - Iaido techniques and swordsmanship emphasized quick drawing the sword smoothly with speed and precision.
  • Enhanced Response - Iaido requires an enhanced response time.
  • Enhanced Swordsmanship - Iaido is an effective form of swordsmanship when fully mastered as the linear motion and force applied to drawing the sword from the scabbard results in slashes that are faster and stronger than ones executed with the sword already drawn.
  • One Hit Kill - Depending on the skills of a master, they can easily kill a target within a single strike.
  • Hyper Awareness - Iaido masters have increased awareness of one's surroundings which are honed through practice of iaido techniques.
  • Maximum Concentration Capacity - Practicing Iaido improves the practitioner’s concentration.
