Mugai Ryu is an ancient Samurai Art with a strong influence from Zen Buddhism. It is still, serence, and yet often complex and challenging. It is also a bizarre amount of fun!
Anyone can join in. There is a 60 year age difference between our oldest and youngest students, and people from all sorts of backgrounds take up Mugai Ryu.
So what is it like? One of our teachers described it as:
"like the tea ceremony with sharper instruments."
But there's a lot to it, including learning sword fighting drills and target cutting. It's a formal art, and it can be very formal indeed. Classes, though, are usually relaxed and fun. Get a flavour of them from the short video we made as part of our #preconceptionfree campaign.
