United States Tamiya Ryu Iaijutsu


Michigan Honbu Dojo

Michigan Honbu Dojo - East Lansing, Michigan

The Michiagan Honbu dojo is the headquarters for Tamiya Ryu Iajiutsu operations in the United States. Surrounded by a beautiful Japanese garden, this traditional dojo was built from plans based on a traditional Japanese training hall.

All classes are by assignment and are held weekly throughout the year with the exception of a winter weather break - The dojo is unheated and Michigan winters are harsh!

Special classes or changes to this schedule will be discussed in the respective classes. Please note, if there are 5 weeks in a given month, there will be no classes during the fifth week.


The USTRI Honbu dojo is currently offering a free introductory month of training. No contracts are required. Please contact Gensui sensei for more information.

Training Schedule

Saturday, 10:00am - 12:00pm (Mixed Level)

Saturday, 12:30pm - 2:30pm (Advanced)

Interested in training at the Honbu dojo? Weekends too busy? Contact us and we may be able to schedule weekday training accommodations.

The Honbu dojo is typically closed during the harsher winter months as the dojo is traditionally built and is not insulated and not heated!
