Iaito Chiburi
Reference : LYS695
The Iaito Chiburi (血振) literally means "to get rid of (shake off) blood", and the movement presented is that of throwing the blood of a defeated enemy from the blade with a dexterous movement before sheathing it.

This heavy iaito is a traditional training tool used in Japanese martial arts such as kendo, aikido and iaido. It is used to strengthen muscles and improve the technique of cutting movements.

This heavier and thicker training sword, due to its shape and weight, it forces the practitioner to use correct cutting technique, using body and hip movement rather than arm strength alone.

Regular use of a heavy Iaito like this Iaito Chiburi, can help improve the strength and coordination of cutting movements, as well as strengthen the muscles of the arms, shoulders and legs. It can also help develop the concentration and mental discipline needed to practice Japanese martial arts.
