Access to over 130 video-lessons

Since we want to stay as authentic as possible, some of the content needs to be unlocked by taking examinations to stay in line with the official Mugai Ryu Meishi Ha curriculum since some Kata are restricted by rank. You will start with over 90 videos.

Take officially certified examinations online

You can only take examinations online till 1st Kyu. For Dan-examinations you will need to take the exam in person with a certified master. Next to the about 20 Dojos Europe-wide in our Mugai Ryu Europe federation, Mugai Ryu Meishi Ha has dojos worldwide. Your examinations will be officially certified by the Mugai Ryu Meishi Ha Soke Niina Gyokusou Toyokai.

Upload your video for corrections

To ensure your correct training and development we will have a personal contact. This is mainly established through corrections of your techniques and Kata, but can also include direct questions from your side. We prepared a guide on your User Page for the procedure.
