The Sword of Clarity
Presented by Kore Grate’

 Description of Presentation


Kore' is honored to be sharing the ancient art of Iaido (EE-EYE-DOUGH) the Japanese Samurai tradition. The Way of The Sword is practiced in both realms of realism and spirituality; to stop an attack as well cutting a path through delusion to the Truth. This practice hones and clarifies the mind, exercises the body, and deepens the spirit.

Kore' will give a historical background including the two distinct differences between “the sword that kills” and the “sword that gives life”. She'll demonstrate a few Katas (Forms), and teach the “Universal Kata-first form” to all participants. (NOTE: No sword needed, we will use our hands as the sword).
