Musô Shinden Ryû Lineages


Here you will find some versions of Musô Shinden Ryû and Musô Jikiden Eishin Ryû lineages of headmasters or master teachers (the links are below). These have been obtained from our teachers or, if from some other source, there is a mention of this.

We have put these on our homepage in order to find out the proper pronunciation for these kanjis and also to discover why there are so many different versions of names or ways of writing the names of the headmasters of these iaido schools.

You need to have a PDF-reader and installed Asian fontpack or other program which can show the kanjis properly. You might find a shareware browser from the page of Jim Breen at Monash University or from NJStar Software. Adobe Reader Adobe Reader and Asian Fontpack
