Kenjutsu should not be confused with iaido or iaijutsu, where the former being a modern developmental with both sporting and artistic aspect with a focus on an aesthetics of execution as well the individual-actualization of the practitioner.
Iaijutsu remains a distinct yet complimentary practice to Kenjutsu in most ryu, but this is not universally correct as many kenjutsu ryu have no iaijutsu training in their syllabus.
Another general distinction between iaijutsu and kenjutsu was the condition of the sword at the start of the kata - in iaijutsu, the sword begins sheathed and the emphasis is on a few initial cuts, while in kenjutsu, the sword begins unsheathed, and the emphasis is on both attack and defense.
