Musokai Dojo

We are a school of Japanese Swordsmanship (Iaido) in the style and tradition of Muso Shinden Ryu.

Our dojo name honors the original vision and teachings of Hayashizaki Jinsuke Shigenobu (1546-1621), universally considered the originator of all styles of Iaido.

Swordsmanship at Musokai

We study and practice Iaido using practice swords (iaito). These weapons look and feel like Samurai swords (katana), though the unsharpened blade is made of lighter metal alloys.

Please see About Iaido to get more of a sense of what this fascinating martial art is like.

As in all Iaido dojos around the world, for safety our practice is limited to facing only an imaginary opponent. To bring that opponent out of the realm of imagination, some Musokai students also practice Kendo Kata.
