Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu

Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu (MJER), often referred to simply as Eishin Ryu, is one of the most widely practiced schools of Iaido.  Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu means ‘peerless, directly transmitted school of Eishin.’   The school takes its name from its seventh headmaster, Hasegawa Hidenobu, who founded Hasegawa Eishin Ryu.  ‘Eishin’ is an alternative pronunciation of ‘Hidenobu.’

 

MJER claims an unbroken lineage dating back from the sixteenth century to the early 20th century however due to multiple full transition awards to students of  the 17th headmaster, Oe Masamichi, there exists multiple legitimate branches.

Some ryuha have the first set (tachi uchi no kurai) as part of their yudansha curriculum.  Each of these katachi (essence of kata) was created to promote practice of a key principle of Eishin Ryu under controlled yet reasonably realistic conditions.
