Mugai Ryu is the art of Kenjutsu and Iaijutsu of Japanese swordsmanship founded in 1695 by Tsuji Gettan Sukemochi. The primary facet of this art lies in attacking with the sword already out of the saya, or scabbard. Mugai Ryu follows the Katsujinken philosophy, the philosophy that the sword is not used to kill, but to give life. Often offering opponents the chance to surrender before killing them. Historically, Tsuji Gettan's style was based on battlefield principles and techniques honed from the Sengoku period of Japan, tempered with the teachings and enlightenment of the Zen Priest Sekitan, under whom Tsuji Gettan learned the ways of Zen.
