Japanese Sword Arts Demonstration at the Evelyn Meador Library

Iaido, or Iaijutsu is the art of drawing the Japanese sword. It was one of the Japanese martial disciplines paramount in the education of the classical warrior (samurai). Emily Egan Sensei of Clear Lake Iaido (Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu), and Ash Welborn (Shin Shin Ryu Iaijutsu) will demonstrate some of their different schools' unique styles as the Evelyn Meador Library celebrates Asian American History Month! The demonstration will start in the meeting room at 1pm.
