    I'm familiar with overall styles like Iaido, Kendo, etc. But, what about a more indepth listing?

    Like for example Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū and Musō Shinden-ryū.

    Hey Bob,
    It sounds to me like the Ryu Guide at Koryu.com is what you are looking for. Great information on the classical arts of Japan there ...

    That looks like what I'm thinking of. Thanks!

    Hmm....now to figure out how to add something similar to Martialpedia.

    hello bob.

    you might want to start your list at the top, beginning with the foremost martial art of japan, i.e. tenshin shoden katori shinto ryu. this system is second to none.

    cheers.

    The trouble is, are you looking for schools that teach sword only, or comprehensive systems that include sword. TSKSR has more than sword in it.
