WHAT IS THE 24 EIC 2017

EUROPEAN IAIDO CHAMPIONSHIPS

Iaido (居合道 Iaidō), abbreviated with iai (居合), is a modern Japanese martial art that emphasizes being aware of the enemy and quickly drawing the sword in response to a sudden attack.
The next European Iaido Championships will take place in Turin, Italy, in November 2017.
CIK (Confederazione Italiana Kendo – Iaido) is a non-profit, non-political sports organization for promoting and developing Kendo, Iaido, Jodo and Naginata in Italy.

Please come without sharp sword, practice with Iaito!

According to Italian regulations, it is necessary to have a weapon carrying permit to carry a shinken. As a consequence, people entering Italy might encounter problems (a shinken might be seized by airport officials). We suggest that you travel with a iaito.

There will be no problems for using either a iaito or a shinken for the examinations, according to the European regulations.
