the original samurai sword combat technique

For his second Workshop in the USA, Sensei Jorge Kishikawa will be accompanied by several graduates, and will introduce the whole syllabus of Niten Institute"s practice of Kenjutsu: the varied ancient techniques and their application in free sparring, the philosophy and the tradition that fascinates his more than 1000 students on different continents.

In teaching the samurai sword arts for more than 40 years, Sensei Jorge Kishikawa has brought together techniques from innumerable samurai styles and modernized their application to combat training. Among many technical achievements, Sensei Jorge Kisihkawa earned the highest rank in the Niten Ichi Ryu style (founded by Miyamoto Musashi during the first half of the 17th century) from grand master Gosho Motoharu.

The combination of his outstanding technical skills, with the philosophy and knowledge gained through 50 years of close interaction with Japanese masters generated a unique practice experience that has been passed to his students in the Niten Institute since 1993, and is now also available in the US at the first dojos in Florida and Colorado.

You are welcome to join us in this Workshop for a strong introduction to Kenjutsu Combat!

Kenjutsu is the name given to the techniques developed by renowned samurai, which are still practiced in Japan in the form of katas (pre-defined movements that simulate combat using a wooden sword).

Kendo is the sport created by simplifying Kenjutsu techniques into 4 basic strokes and one kamae (posture/stance), using a modern Bogu (armor) and Shinai (bamboo sword).

Kenjutsu Combat, created by Sensei Jorge Kishikawa, is the application of ancient Kenjutsu techniques in combat with modern Bogu and Shinai, making sparring training possible, without the limits of Kendo. This allows for the use of other weapons, such as Kodachi (shortsword), two swords, and Naginata (Japanese pole-arm).

Kenzo in Florida

por Takeshi - US/Miami - 06-set-2017

We received Kenzo in the state of Florida this August.

Senpai went to Orlando in the Kissimmee Dojo and also in the Miami/Weston Dojo. It was a trip filled with training, talking, learning and also fun! Senpai Kenzo practiced with everyone, training almost every day of his visit and also took a time to go to Fort Lauderdale just to feel the waters of the North Atlantic in his feet.

We thank Senpai Kenzo for his visit and wish he can come back again soon.

Biirudo in Weston, FL

por Takeshi - US/Miami - 05-set-2017

After the Workshop with Senpai Kenzo, a Biirudo with the students.

We had a intense training with Senpai Kenzo, so nothing better than to relax with food and cold drinks! Not only that, but we could talk with Kenzo Senpai and learn more about the Bushido. In a more relaxed enviroment, more teachings and secrets are passed, not only about techniques, but mainly about Samurai and Japanese culture.

With this biirudo we say sayounara to Senpai Kenzo in Weston and wish him good luck in his next step.

Arigatou gozaimashita!

1st Colorado Kenjutsu Workshop

por Thomas - US/Denver - 27-ago-2017

1st Colorado Kenjutsu Workshop with Senpai Helio Kenzo Dino!

Attendees came from around the Greater Denver area to participate in the first Niten Institute workshop in the state of Colorado, while our visiting Senpai, Kenzo Dino, brought his positive energy all the way from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Senpai Kenzo taught everyone about the origins of Niten, the Institute today, and how training helps us improve ourselves.

During our demonstrations, I really enjoyed fighting with Kenzo-Senpai and I worked hard to show the attendees our NITO (two-sword) stances.

Everyone really enjoyed our demonstration of KEIKO (open combat), so when their chance came to put on the armor themselves, no one hesitated. Kenzo-Senpai pushed everyone to work hard and really draw out their energy. By the end of the three hours, it was obvious from everyone’s tired but happy faces that they had enjoyed the workshop.

Arigatou gozaimashita to Kenzo-Senpai and all our participants for making our first Colorado workshop a success! We look forward to training with you again soon!

Gambatte kudasai,
