Siljun Dobup is a modern iaijutsu form developed by living Grandmaster Jin K. Seong. Drawing from the Japanese sword forms Muso Jikiden Eishin-ry, and Nakumura-ryu, as well as the ancient Korean sword Chosun Sebup, Master Seong designed Siljun Dobup to be fast and efficient, while maintaining the spirit, or zanshin of traditional iaido. Siljun Dobup is often practiced in compliment to Kendo (Japanese fencing).
In the beginner iaido: Siljun Dobup class, students will practice the basics of the form, including proper drawing and re-sheathing of the blade. Students will learn how to execute a proper overhead cut, and will be introduced to the other cutting directions. The class will focus on basic mechanics, while maintaining zanshin, or a “remaining mind.”
