Check out www.shinjinkai.org. It's located at 3717 N Ravenswood and is the official Chicago HQ for the U.S. Federation of Mugai Ryu Iaihyodo. It is also a branch dojo for Shinbukan Kuroda Ryugi. In fact Tetsuzan Kuroda Sensei will be visiting the US July 7 - 10. Shinbukan Kuroda was founded in 1848 and continues to teach it's curriculum of samurai military arts.

Just so that we're clear these are two different branches of Mugai Ryu.

Midwest Shotokan just calls it Iaido but when you start class or ask some questions you'll find out it's Iai-Tate-Do Iaido. Cieplik-Sensei use to teach out of his house when the class was only about 4 to 6 students. With 6 students, it was really tight.

hmmm it stated Kashima Shinto Ryu

well i thought Kashima Shinto Ryu is more of kenjutsu like Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu. Iaijustu is part of the system.
