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.

In-person Class Suspension in Chicago

Due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Chicago and in the interest of keeping our members and community safe, we will be suspending in-person group classes in Chicago.

Again, we are sorry for this inconvenience and are eager to be back in the dojo for regular training; this situation calls for teamwork and patience, however. We will continue to communicate any changes or developments as we become aware of them. Thank you!
