Mugai Ryu Atlanta
Welcome to Mugai Ryu Atlanta. We teach traditional Japanese Swordsmanship, also known as iaido (ee-eye-do). Mugai Ryu is a traditional (Koryu), feudal-era style of Japanese swordsmanship founded around 1700 by Tsuji Gettan Sukemochi. The style aims at teaching practical, combative sword techniques. Practice centers on learning the formal sword drawing and cutting solo forms, as well as paired combative forms using partners. Iaido reiho, or basic sword etiquette and protocol, is also stressed. We have been serving the North Atlanta area since 2004 and are affiliated with the Japanese Iaido Federation.
We offer classes on Saturday mornings from 8:30 – 9:50am at Aikido Association Atlanta in Alpharetta, Georgia. Our classes are open to all adults. Children showing the willingness, self-control and patience necessary to learn are also welcome as we do have some teens and pre-teens who do quite well. There is no falling, rolling or contact involved so older adults are often able to train into advanced age.
