1) I would like to study a koryu system.

2) Their aren't any instructors around within what is a reasonable distance for me right now.

2a) When I found out there was an iaido class going on in my small town I started studying as soon as I could. I love it! I find it and aikido work very well together. Now if only a sensei from a koryu stystem would move near here
