I am learning Muso Shinto Ryu Jodo which includes Kenjutsu. I am also learning Seitei Iaido and Muso Jikiden Eishin-ryu Iaido.

In jodo we do kiai, in iaido, we never do. Same teacher for both. What do other schools do? Does anyone know the reason for the difference?

Other sword schools kiai. From my understanding, those based more on court/castle etiquette do not kiai while those that have direct battle applications kiai.

You'll find that different schools kiai in different ways and with different specific kiai. Niten Ichiryu has three kiai sounds but they are only done on the Shidachi side in the nito seiho (two sword side). They are Zu Tan Feh

MJER tachi uchi no kurai has ya ei to

Kendo no kata has ya to

and so on. You'll even find that iaido "has kiai" it's usually silent but it's there in many lines. I often find my jaw dropping although my mouth isn't open when I'm doing iai.

I'm with Taylor-sensei on this one. The line of MJER which I practice kiai's as well, it's just that it is usually silent. Physilogically it's identical, just without the vocalization.
