Doh! meant to attach these to the existing Kenjutsu thread but made the mistake of posting it as a new thread instead, my apologies...

Here's another neat pic of Iaido and Iaijutsu or Battojutsu (quick-draw/quick-kill to put it bluntly). Some of the more common and or well-known Ryu (styles) include:

Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu
Tatsumi Ryu
Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu
Shindo Munen Ryu
Muso Shinden Ryu
Katori Shinto Ryu

And many more obviously...

The second pic is an interesting one of Tameshi-giri or the actual physical cutting of the sword. Also tried to find some pics of Shinkendo but alas those are hard to find (considering they use real blades it's no wonder 8-P)

Anyone else have any neat Kenjutsu/Kendo related pics I would ask that you please post them for the benefit of those members who have expressed an interest.
:D
