+Information

COVID-19:

Presential training are suspended. Trainings for students follow ONLINE in closed groups.
For those interested in joining the practice we are offering OPEN ONLINE CLASSES on ZOOM and also with LIVE broadcast on Facebook. Join the classes! Learn more at KENJUTSU AT HOME

Enrollment:

US$ 40 (one time fee, due at the 3rd class. Enrollments open in all training sessions of the year)

Equipment:

Beginners can train with T-shirt and sport pants (Judo pants, jogging pants, or similar).
The definitive uniform consists of the Institute´s custom Kimono and Hakama, and the basic practice swords are a standard bamboo shinai and a wooden bokken. Other equipment, such as combat armor (bogu) and additional weapons, can be acquired according to the progression of each student. For the combat armor, there is also the option of renting armor from the dojo. For details about equipment, uniform or rental availability, please ask the instructors of the Dojo.

Getting Started

Visit a training session:

Please feel welcome to visit a training session, as listed on the schedule above. There is no need to pre-register, all training sessions are open to interested observers.

Experimental Classes:

If you are interested in participating, but not sure about enrolling, you can take part in experimental lessons for your first two visits. We will provide the necessary equipment, and you won’t have to worry about enrollment and equipment fees unless you decide to continue. The ideal outfit for beginners is a dark T-shirt and breathable workout pants.

Adults:

Adults of all ages, men and women can train. There are no specific prerequisites nor the need to previously have physical training or experience in martial arts. The training brings technical, physical and interior progress to all ages and stages of life.

Children:

Children from 12 years old can participate in all training sessions.

Training:

Sessions last an average of 2 hours. Training sessions are made up of various parts, warm-up, basics of strokes and techniques, sequence training and combat. Combat training is usually divided up into groups of beginners, intermediates, and graduates, while at other times the more experienced may work with and guide the most novice. How frequently one should train depends on the potential of each student. With training just once a week, it will be easy to to see technical progress, physical and health-related benefits, and the assimilation of the principles and values of the Bushido philosophy. A lower frequency of training is still valid, and can provide results for students with less availability.

Philosophy:

During any visit to the Dojo, try to stay until the end of the session and participate in the Golden Moments, when the training is complemented with elements of Japanese culture and Bushido samurai philosophy.

KIR Method:

KIR is a training method aimed at the physical, mental and emotional development of the student, giving little emphasis to competitiveness and discouraging the use of force. With this positive energy, the student feels confident to fully develop their potential.

What we train

Kenjutsu:

The art of the samurai sword is still alive and can be practiced today, with the closest approximation of the experiences by which samurai lived for centuries. There are hundreds of stances and fighting techniques that are practiced during training sessions with the use of appropriate equipment for protection and safety.

Within Kenjutsu is practiced the Niten Ichi Ryu style, created by the samurai Miyamoto Musashi Sensei. The name of this style means “Two Skies as One,” alluding to the famous techniques of two swords, able to defeat the most skilled opponents with whom Musashi-Sensei crossed swords.
Welcome to the
Colorado Dojo
of the Niten Institute


Kenjutsu Combat, created by Sensei Jorge Kishikawa, is when you apply ancient Kenjutsu techniques in combat with modern armor (Bogu) and using bamboo swords (Shinai).

Niten Institute classes are not only for strengthening the body, but also the mind and spirit, by practicing the techniques and following in the footsteps of our founder, Miyamoto Musashi. This style of Kenjutsu Combat only recently arrived in the US with the 2017 visit of Sensei Kishikawa.

As such, we are very excited to announce the beginning of regular classes here in the Denver-Boulder region. We have secured a great location at the new Sport Stable in Superior, conveniently located less than a mile from the US-36.

Regular classes are currently offered twice a week, but make sure to check our schedule frequently for special guests and events.

Come discover the way of the sword!
