The Art of Batto Do

The way of drawing and cutting with a sword in a single motion

What is Batto Do / Toyama Ryu Iaijutsu

Batto Do, loosely translated, means the way of drawing and cutting with a sword in a single motion. This is the basic distinction between Batto Do and Kenjutsu, which are fighting techniques used after the sword is drawn. The terms Batto Do and Iai Do are almost interchangeable. Kata is an important training element in Batto Do but cutting is also part of the classes.

Batto Do / Toyama Ryu Kata

The eight Toyama Ryu kata were adapted from the original training kata from the Toyama Military Academy. Each Kata teach the student how to move, draw, defend, and attack efficiently with the sword.

What do you need to start Batto Do?

Beginners should consult with Sensei before purchasing equipment. An important piece of equipment for the beginner is the obi or belt. The Batto Do obi is very different from the usual karate or judo belt, because it must securely support the sword. It must be at least 6cm wide, and must be long enough to pass three times around the body and make a proper knot. Another item needed to start is a wooden sword or Bokken (Bokuto).
