All classes in person at Instituto Niten are suspended due to Covid-19.
In order to spread the flame of the Sword, we created the page "KENJUTSU AT HOME FOR ALL".
On this page, everyone can find material to train at home and passages from Sensei Jorge Kishikawa`s Golden Moments.
Let`s keep the Body, Mind and Spirit energy moving!

Getting Started

The first steps to start training

During COVID epidemic there is no training in person, but students continue training in their normal hours, from home, through our Virtual dojos.

For anyone who is not a student at this time we create open online classes, free for all intersted. The classes are occurring in the public Niten Institute Instagrams:
Each class is a small training with the first foundations of kenjutsu, so you can keep focused and can move your body at home and take your first steps in this art. More information can be found at the link "TRAINING KENJUTSU AT HOME"

If you already watched at least TWO of these open and basic classes, no matter the language, and are interested to move forward and be able to participate also the closed training and receive all the content sent to students, as Golden Moments, Sensei`s messagens and follow up directly with the senpais, we`ve create a path for this:

Fill out the FULL FORM (click here) and request an individual class. We will offer this free lesson to all interested. We will put you in direct contact with a veteran student from Niten and you will be able to arrange a time for a private training in a direct video call (Whatsapp or Facetime). It will be like an experimental class, only now everyone at home.

This individual class of the basic notions may be reviewed and corrected by ours professors and you can also learn a little more about how it is the training and the culture of the Dojo on Niten. At the end we will explain how we are working in this uncertain period, and how to become enrolled student and how to follow the closed training with the group!

Let us keep the energy moving!
Be Welcome to join us even more!


To start training, the best way is to participate in an experimental lesson, where you will learn the basics of sword training and know the drills and the group.

Ideally, come with a T-shirt and sweatpants.
Sword and / or bokken will be loaned by us.

If you want, you can also come just to watch the training. But we recommend you to participate in the training, to feel what the lesson is like.


The class is divided into two parts:
Kata and Bogu.

Scroll sequences created by the Samurai for up to 600 years.
They are practiced in pairs with Bokuto (wooden sword).

-Bogu (protection armor)
In this part of the class students learn to apply the techniques.
Students who are starting and still do not use bogu train the application of the techniques to start using bogu.

Golden Moments
In the experimental class, as in all other training, the Sensei or the coordinator will eventually make the Golden Moments.
It is the moment when students learn more about samurai thinking and Japanese culture.
Concepts such as Discipline, Self-Control, Concentration and Stress Control are approached from a samurai point of view, and students learn how to fit the teachings of the sword into their day-to-day lives.

In the experimental class, you can stay until the end of the training or, if you prefer, less time (for example about 40 minutes).
It is recommended that you arrive between 5 and 10 minutes before the workout, so that you can enter quietly and participate in stretching.
