Kham taught me about Iaido!

Last week I did something a little different from what I normally do. In fact, it is just about the complete opposite of couples madly in love but it was so fun to get out of my comfort zone and capture Kham. Iaido. What the heck is Iaido? I’m so glad you asked! Because I learned about it! It is a Japanese martial art. The style of iaido that Kham practices is ishiyamaryu-ryu. No, I didn’t sneeze. It uses a combination of body movement, footwork, repetitive swings, stance, grip, and breathing exercises. Kham wanted to learn iaido because it doesn’t focus on close combat situations, it helps you work through what you are about to do in that moment you realize someone is going to attack you, before it ever actually happens. It was all really interesting to hear about. So, we gallivanted out into the hills of Frederick to snap some photos.
