Kata (Forms) are trained with real swords. Until the Master degree, or Dan level, Iaito are used. Iaito are training Katana made of steel, but not sharpended. Kata training helps the Iaidoka to work on his posture, charisma, presence and of course the use of the sword.

Next to Kata, Kenjutsu is taught using Bokuto (wooden swords). Kumitachi is training the techniques with an actual partner, optionally Kendo-like sparring is also part of Kenjutsu.

The last aspect is Tameshigiri, the cutting test, in which the student learns to cut with a real sword. This is comparable to the breaking test of the weaponless martial arts.
