I recently read that samuria didn't even wear katana in while seated in seiza yet half of iaido is done in this position can anyone clarify this for me? is the information i read wrong? if its not whats the point of teaching something in such great detail if it has a rarity of ever happening in real combat? i know its very good exercise for you is that maybe the reason it was included? and my other question is and forgive me for asking but is iaido an affective fighting art with the sword? would it really work in a combat situation? i do know its kata are taken from earlier forms and kenjutsu which as far as i know where very affective in what they did. this stuff has really burned a hole in my mind for a while. The reason i ask as well is because i know iaido is good for the mind and body but i also love swords and would like to learn a traditional art of it.
