We have recently begun revising our website to include location information for each branch dojo in the Suio Ryu Iai Kenpo USA Shibu.
This would include Anaheim and Irvine in Southern California; San Francisco, California; Pawtucket, Rhode Island; Grove City, Ohio; Omaha, Nebraska; and Sequim, Washington.
The Suio Ryu is one of the few extant koryu, or ancient systems of martial arts, practiced today. It was founded around 1600 by Mima Yoichizaemon Kagenobu, and has followed the traditional method of oral transmission. Today, the head of the Suio Ryu is Katsuse Yoshimitsu Kagehiro, who lives and teaches in Shizuoka City (formerly Shimizu city) in Shizuoka prefecture in Japan
