How to be approved in Polytechnic School




Recently I was approved at the college entrance examination of the Polytechnic School of USP (São Paulo University, one of the best universities in Brazil) in computer engineering, and Sensei asked me to share this experience of being approved without being absent from Niten.
One of the first Golden Moments I saw, and also one of the most remarkable to me, was when Sensei taught about "what should be done, and what shouldn"t be done." He said: "if you do what must be done, and not do what should not be done, " I would already be very well, compared to the others.
But "to say" is something very different than actually "doing" it, and I remember Sensei saying, "If it were easy like that, there wouldn"t be such a Golden Moment," and that"s where Niten makes the difference.
Going to practice regularly, listening to Sensei"s Golden Moments, and the energy of the path"s warriors is what motivated me the most during the journey of college entrance exam, and I realized that when I didn"t go, I got softer, lazier, and left the commitments aside, many times.
So, if you are going to do these exams, do not forget to go to the training because of your studies. On the contrary, go to practice to help with your studies!

Samurai Day 2018 3

"Konichiwa! Shitsureishimassu!
Congratulations to you Sensei!!!
Omedetou Gozaimasu!
Before Niten, I walked lost in the fog, aimlessly, lost in this modern world.
But far away I saw a lighthouse, and it was Sensei who leads me to a new land full of millennial teachings.
Thank you Sensei for letting me be part of this Samurai family called Niten!
Thank you for your courage for teaching Bushido!
Thank you for polishing us and sharing the Golden Moments!
Domo Arigato Gozaimasu!
Sayonara Arigato Gozaimasu, Sensei."

Samurai Day 2018 1



The April 24th is the day to celebrate among Warriors!


After the Iaijutsu training, we´ve met at the Hokkaido dojo to celebrate our day and Sensei Jorge Kishikawa´s!




“Samurai day” was instituted in 2007 in São Paulo city and later in Piracicaba, Ribeirão Preto, Campinas. Moreover, the states of Paraná, Amazonas and Santa Catarina honored Sensei Jorge Kishikawa for spreading the warrior tradition from the Samurai sword, the KOBUDO and the Samurai´s philosophy, the BUSHIDO, all over Brazil.

Two legacies that were the key foundations for Japan´s development and to make it one of the most important and respected nations in the world.
O dia escolhido para essa homenagem é 24 de Abril, data de nascimento do Sensei.





Arigatou Gozaimashita for the presence of all.
May we continue along this path of Honor, courage, and joy!

Gambate Kudasai Samurais from Niten!

Samurai Day



Translation

Ohayou Niten,
Ohayou to everyone,

Today is the Samurai Day....Samurai!
This word has a tremendous importance in my personal experience, in my life.
Thanks to the teachings from these warriors that I have achieved so many things in my life, and get until here.
Honor, Loyalty, Justice, Wisdom, Compassion and essentially the Courage to overcome this life which is not easy at all.

I wrote in my book Shin Hagakure: "Life is not a bed of roses"; so we need a compass ... this compass is the samurai culture for me ... this compass is the sword, for the Niten students.
I want to celebrate this day with you all. And those who aren´t yet a samurai warrior, I want to invite to try out how good it is to be a samurai warrior.
I will transmit a phrase from a monk Nissen Shounin, that worth for those 25 years that I have spent at the Niten Institute: "It is okay to be hated if the sincere feeling of helping others remains until the end."
(he repeats)
"It is okay to be hated if the sincere feeling of helping others remains until the end."
Thanks to this thought I could be able to be understood.
Thanks to that we´ll move forward, bringing happiness and liberation for all of our students.
Arigatou

62nd Paulista Award 2 - Nippak Newspaper


Published in Nippak Newspaper on April 12nd, 2018



Translation
For the seventh consecutive year, the City Council of Sao Paulo was the stage of the Paulista Sports Award, in its 62nd edition this year. The ceremony - one of the most popular in recent years - was held on the 4th of July in the main hall of the main Legislative House of the country. It was attended by Yasushi Noguchi, the Consul General of Japan in Sao Paulo; also the councilor Aurélio Nomura (PSDB); the president of the Kunito Miyasaka Foundation, Roberto Nishio; Yoshiharu Kikuchi, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the 110 Years Celebration of Japanese Immigration to Brazil; and state representative Pedro Kaká, and the "always representative" Hatiro Shimomoto

From Argentina
Kobudo has given "international" status on the Paulista Sports Award with the honored Maria Flavia Saieva, one of the first students of kenjutsu, iaijutsu, and jojutsu of Argentina´s dojo of Niten Institute. An Argentine student with the highest grade of kenjutsu by Sensei Jorge Kishikawa - founder of Niten and idealizer of the Method (KIR) - Ken Intensive Recuperation - Marina was the first woman in Argentina to receive the Shoden graduation from Niten Ichi Ryu style. "I found in Kobudo a way to wake me up spiritually. Everything I learn I apply on a daily basis, how to be more resourceful and work as a team," says Marina.
