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.

The Arts

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
Niten Institute
Florida Dojo


The practice in the USA started with the first Kenjutsu Combat workshop in North America, on February 6th 2017 with our Sensei Jorge Kishikawa.
Regular practices in Florida already began with weekly training classes in Kissimmee-FL. Come and join us. Be Welcome.

Kenjutsu Combat, created by Sensei Jorge Kishikawa, is when you apply ancient Kenjutsu techniques into combat with a modern armor (Bogu) and using bamboo swords (Shinai).
Regular classes are currently offered once a week, but make sure to check our schedule constantly for special guests, events or occasional cancelations.

FIRST REPORT - Pan-Americano Niten

por Niten - 10-out-2017



First news from Pan American with the entourage of Brazilians and Argentines at the dojos of Miami and Denver...



"Shitsureishimasu, Sensei
Konbawa
Our first day in Miami in preparation for the Pan American Encounter was beyond my expectations. The Brazilian, Argentinian and American teams commingled very well and supported one another during the whole day. I had the opportunity to talk to most of the participants and got very positive comments from all of them. Heard from an American that got his first kyu today: "I don"t like to wake up early. The only day thatI do is the one that I have the Niten class ".
 I think that we are going in the right direction and that Niten has a bright future in the US
Arigato gozaimashita.

Nosso primeiro dia em Miami em preparação para Encontro Pan-Americano ultrapassaram minhas expectativas.
Os grupos Brasileiros, Argentinos e Americanos se entrosaram muito bem e apoiaram uns aos outros durante o dia inteiro. Eu tive a oportunidade de falar com a maioria dos participantes e recebi ótimos comentários de todos.
Ouvi de um americano que recebeu seu 1º Kyu (Graduação) hoje: "Eu não gosto de acordar cedo. O único dia que faço isso é o dia das aulas do Niten" 
Acredito que estamos indo na direção certa e que o Niten tem um futuro brilhante nos Estados Unidos.

First Day in US - Bayside 


KENJUTSU WORKSHOP WITH SENSEI JORGE KISHIKAWA - OCT 2017 COLORADO

por Niten - 21-set-2017



Kenjutsu
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 - 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 - 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 - 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,
