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.

Happy New Year

For everyone in the Mugai Ryu family in North America, 2018 was a banner year. We accomplished so much and grew in ways we never have before.

We have so much in store for this year; the steering committee and members have been hard at work putting together a new calendar with all kinds of amazing classes, activities, demonstrations, workshops, and special events, and we can't wait to share them with you.

We wish everyone happiness and health in 2019!
