iaido: MugaiRyu Iaihyodo – Shiokawa-Ha
Mugai-ryu Shiokawa-ha, head by Grandmaster Okazaki, is an ancient Japanese art of swordsmanship that focuses on Iaido, Kenjutsu, and Jujutsu techniques. The iaido portion contains the techniques for the sword when it is sheathed until the end of its initial draw and re-sheathing. Kenjutsu involves the techniques used with the sword once it is drawn. In Mugai-Ryu the standard long sword and short sword, are used in practice, along with the Bokuto (bokken/ wooden sword) versions of the two. Jujutsu techniques involve empty hand techniques, as well as empty hand vs sword techniques or a mix.
