Bjørn Aris is a former investment banker who became a full time samurai. He is a master of iaido, Japanese swordsmanship. Iaido approximately translates as "the way of mental presence and immediate reaction". It is a solitary practice, whereby one fights an imaginary opponent in the form of kata. Great emphasis is laid on precise, controlled, fluid motion but the philosophical and spiritual aspects of the practice are equally, if not more, important. Thank you Bjørn, It was a pleasure and a privilege to do this project with you!
