Thanks,

I myself use an CAS/Iberia practical iaito and have no knowledge regarding your specific company. As long as your sensei is okay with the selection offered and your choice I wouldn't worry to much. IMO Best of luck which Japanese sword art are you study it really changes when you start using an Iaito.

I don't have any personal experience with their Iaito, but I've heard good things. No reason to fear getting a junker.

Do you happen to know what branch of MJER this is? I know of an MJER dojo associated with the ZNIR, and I think I recently heard of a Kendo Renmei group. I couldn't read the wps file on the dojos website, which I assume contains more information about the iaido program.

Im actually not sure what branch it is. We discussed it a few weeks ago, but I didnt have my note book with me that day. I know he trains in stockton, but I forgot the name of his sensei. I will ask tonight. I dont have the right program on my computer to open the wps file either.

Ahh. Based on some information found on the following MySpace profile(which admittedly may not be the best source), http://www.myspace.com/sanjurosensei, I think you are probably not practicing Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu under one of the larger branches, but rather something called Toei Ryu. I'm not particularly familiar with it. I'll see what I can find out. You've got me curious.

Not much to find apparently. Most references refer to Kobudo. He is mentioned in an ebudo thread but only briefly. According to the myspace profile linked above Toei Ryu is apparently related in some way to Tosa Iai.
