From what basic research I had done on iaijutsu while procrastinating at something or other out of casual interest, it had exactly one practical application; as a quick response to surprise attacks.

Actual iaijutsu videos show the practitioners typically in a kneeling position, and doing the draw-slash motions from that position; it's that way for a reason. Certainly, knowing this particular skill-set would make a samurai better equipped to deal with assassins or the like.

Iaido is mostly for emergency situations where quick drawing is necessary.
