Mugai Ryu Iaido is “cutting Iai”. All techniques have to cut and must be effectively usable in real fight situation. This demand is nowadays rarely seen in other Iaido schools.
Kata (Forms) are trained with real swords. Until the Master degree, or Dan level, Iaito are used. Iaito are training Katana made of steel, but not sharpended. Kata training helps the Iaidoka to work on his posture, charisma and presence.
After gaining some experience, Kumitachi (acutal combat) will be taught, using Bokuto (wooden swords).
The last aspect is Tameshigiri, the cutting test, in which the student learns to cut with a real sword. This is comparable to the breaking test of the weaponless martial arts.
