IAIDO

Muso Shinden-ryu

Japan 1932
Muso Shinden-ryu 夢想神伝流 — is the Iaido School, the classical martial art of Japan. The kata from Muso Shinden-ryu have a number of differences from the kata of its sister art, Muso Jikiden Eishin-ryu. Among the most visible are the manner in which the furikamuri (raising the sword overhead, more commonly known as furikaburi) and the noto (sheathing) are done. Both arts also differ from many other iaido schools in that there is no kiai.
