Mugai Ryu North America

Mugai Shinden Mugai Ryu Iai Hyodo, or Mugai Ryu Iaido for short, is a traditional, feudal-era style of swordsmanship founded by Tsuji Gettan Sukemochi in the year 1675.

The style aims at teaching practical, combative sword techniques with an emphasis on Zen and the attainment of enlightenment through swordsmanship. This connection to Zen comes from Tsuji Gettan’s strong belief that the ”sword and zen are the way of the same truth.”

Our school is affiliated with the Nippon Iaido Renmei in Japan under the guidance of Soke Nakatani Yoshitaro, the 12th headmaster of Mugai Ryu. We have been active in Chicago since 2003.
