Mugai Ryu Iai Hyodo

In order to understand the true purpose of Mugai Ryu, one must train for 30 years, then 30 years more, then 30 years more.

End of Year Training

The final class at the Chicago dojo will be December 9th, followed by dinner at a local restaurant (TBD). We will have a signup sheet out at classes over the next couple weeks so that we can get an accurate head count.

End-of-year Events

As the year rounds to a close, we are planning a few events to finish out the year and begin the new one. We also have some changes to payments and membership coming soon, which will take effect as of January 1st of the new year.

Please check back regularly for updates!
