    -- ​ 25 YEARS OF NITEN CULTURAL INSTITUTE

    AUDIENCE AT THE GENERAL COMMAND OF THE MILITARY POLICE

    The Niten Cultural Institute, through its master Jorge Kishikawa, visited the premises of the General Command of the Military Police of Sao Paulo on August,10th.
    The visit, in a hearing form, was the invitation extended by the Military Police Command to the Institute, due to the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Niten Cultural Institute.
    Topics such as the Japanese police and their relationship with Kobudo techniques were discussed, as well as aspects of the history of Japanese culture.
    Master Kishikawa has been transmitting Kenjutsu and Goshinjutsu (self-defense used by the samurais) techniques for more than 10 years to the police forces.
    General Commander of the Military Police, Colonel Marcelo Vieira Salles received Master Kishikawa and his entourage, when matters related to Samurais and the Japanese police were approached. Next month, a Tribute from the General Command to the Niten Cultural Institute will be handed over for the services rendered to the community of Sao Paulo since its foundation.
    Also in Manaus, student Amorim, an army colonel, has transmitted to his battalion Samurai techniques for emotional control and survival in the jungle, which he said has proved very useful.
    According to Master Kishikawa, Japanese kendo practitioners seek the Niten Cultural Institute because, according to them, "In Japan, it is not possible to practice Kenjutsu in combat."
    The grace of this success lies in the fact that Master Kishikawa is the only one in the world who has assimilated ancient techniques and adapted them to combat where he has proven proficiency. His training as a sports physician allowed the traditional techniques, considered lethal, to be adjusted to combat with extreme safety.
    In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the 1st World Kenjutsu Tournament will be on October 20th and 21st, with representatives from the United States, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, and Portugal.
    In programming, there´ll be unprecedented demonstrations where, according to Master Kishikawa, declaring his determination:
    - "It´ll be an event never seen in the world."
