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
London Dojo
of the Niten Institute


Niten Institute is arriving at London!

Through Niten Institute, our master Sensei Jorge Kishikawa has been teaching hundreds of students in all America and Portugal the ancient martial arts of the Samurai warriors for 25 years.

More then a way to strengthen the body, Kenjutsu is a way to keep mind, spirit and body in balance. At Niten London you will practice Kenjutsu Combat, created by our master Sensei Jorge Kishikawa, being able to apply several ancient techniques in combat using a bamboo sword (shinai) and a modern armor (bogu).

Therefore, we are excited to announce that we are starting regular classes at the Wimbledon Dojo once a week, on the 6th of October. The Dojo is at Aspire@Southfields, close to the Southfields Academy, King George’s Park and Wimbledon Park.

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP- The Tree of the World Championship

por Cavalheiro - 25-out-2018



Konbanwa Youroshiku Onegaishimasu Sensei, Shitsureishimasu,

I owed an explanation to Sensei about the meaning behind the tree I gave as an Orei.

Last year, I made my first shugyo and took 1000 tsurus to Sensei as an Orei. I made it thinking about the hope of Peace to every one of Niten, the peace that we achieve in training, in advancing on the path and facing the challenges of everyday life. There were 1000 tsurus for the wish to perform and it was multi-colored because we, as students, we have multiple colors, multiple origins and yet unique.

Soon after, I thought of the idea of the tree with foliage of tsurus, and although at first, it was something artistic, better presented, from one year to this it was making more and more sense.

The tree is an idea that was planted, a seed that was growing and to break the soil it began to grow humbly, and of course, had to face external factors to develop strong and firm to stay on the ground until it was full of life through its flowers. But these flowers did not come from the tree but instead, landed on the tree. And every tsuru who landed in this tree, fuller, fuller and more alive, remained.

The students of Niten are the tsurus of this idea, the flowers that make the tree a tree and, based on the Sensei`s speech, are the people who made the dream a reality.

Sensei can check, the tsurus are not perfect, they are not the same, some are clustered, others are aligned, and that is because we are not perfect, but together we form something so beautiful that it can be considered perfect.

And the fruits: the fruit of this tree is when the tsuru flies from it, and at that moment the idea goes with it, growing more other trees in new places.

Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita to Sensei and [Mika] Sensei for being warriors to make a dream come true and being a model to all of us who make up this dream.

Shitsureishimasu,
Sayounara Arigatou Gozaimashita,

Mundial - Wonderful Days

por Toshi - 25-out-2018



Shitsurei Shimasu,

Konnichiwa Sensei,

Such wonderful days!
Today it seems that the sun was brighter, that people were more beautiful, that life is much better! My sense of time has changed, it was so intense, I have the feeling that the party lasted almost a month. The screams of the crowd still echo in my head, the image of the little table was branded in my heart.
The environment created by Senpai Wenzel was perfect to give the atmosphere of celebration, this congregation was formed from the colors of the flag, I saw Brazilians, Argentines, Mexicans, Portuguese, Chileans, and Americans talking as if they were old friends, true brothers of the Sword!

Arigatou gozaimashita Sensei, for opening the path where many passes and many will pass! I had the opportunity to talk to Mika Sensei and how she thrilled and inspired me!
Having the opportunity to assist in assembling and documenting gave me another perspective of the party, I had contact with different people and reconnect the links. I learned a little of the history of each one of them, and I saw the impact of Sensei and Niten on their lives, they are all very grateful for the existence of Sensei and your work. Sensei has the strength to change destinies!

The victory of Senpai Gilberto gave me the joy of knowing that we trained with the best senpais in the whole world! The girls from Argentina motivated me to train more too! And they were the more excited crowd ever!

Domo Arigatou gozaimashita for allowing me to help and participate a little in this unforgettable party.

Long live Niten!

Arigatou Gozaimashita,

Shitsurei Shimasu,

Mundial - Dias maravilhosos

por Toshi - 25-out-2018



Shitsurei Shimasu,

Konnichiwa Sensei,

Que dias maravilhosos!
Hoje parece que o Sol estava mais brilhante, que as pessoas eram mais bonitas, que a vida é muito melhor! A minha noção de tempo se alterou, foi tão intenso, que tenho a sensação de que a festa durou um mês. Os gritos da torcida ecoam na minha cabeça, a imagem da mesinha foi gravada no meu coração.
O ambiente que Senpai Wenzel criou foi perfeito para dar a atmosfera de comemoração, a egrégora se formou a partir das cores das bandeiras e eu vi brasileiros, argentinos, mexicanos, portugueses, chilenos e americanos conversando como se fossem velhos companheiros, verdadeiros Irmãos de Espada!

Arigatou Gozaimashita Sensei, por abrir esse caminho aonde muitos passam e muitos passarão! Tive a oportunidade de conversar com Mika Sensei e como ela me emociona e inspira!
Ter a oportunidade de ajudar na montagem e documentar me deu outra perspectiva da festa, tive contato com pessoas diferentes e reconectar os elos. Soube um pouco da história de cada um deles e vi o impacto do Sensei e do Niten na vida de todas elas, todas são muito gratas pela existência do Sensei e de seu trabalho. Sensei tem a força de mudar destinos!

A vitória do Senpai Gilberto me deu a alegria de saber que treinamos com os melhores Senpais do mundo! As meninas da Argentina me motivaram para treinar mais também! E foi a torcida mais animada!

Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita por me permitir ajudar e participar um pouco nessa festa inesquecível.

Vida longa ao Niten!

Arigatou Gozaimashita,

Shitsurei Shimasu,

Mundial - Humility, Passion, Spirit and Hospitality

por Juan Borrero - 25-out-2018



Shitsurei Shimassu,

A slight verbiage change was made based on Takeshi Senpai`s recommendation.

Niten 1st World Kenjutsu Tournament and 25th Anniversary

Humility, Passion, Spirit, and Hospitality

The weekend of October 19 – 21 of 2018 will be one of the most memorable weekends in my life to date. It was with great effort, that I was fortunate enough, to find the solutions that allowed me to travel to Sao Paulo, and not only participate in the tournament, but learn from the source that is Sensei Jorge Kishikawa and all the Senpai’s and Kohai’s that were present. I travelled without goals, without expectations, I wanted to live in the presence of the energy (ki) of Sensei and all the Senpai’s and Kohais from across Brazil and the World.

Training in Wimbledon 2

por Otavio - 05-out-2018

Senpai, what I can say about the training… when I think on this Saturday training (29th of November 2018) I see a movie o my last 2 years in my mind.
Everything began when I got the opportunity to work in Europe, more precisely in the north of Portugal. This was a moment of joy. But one thing always was in my mind:
And about Niten? And the training?
In the beginning, I was going to settle in a city about 3 hours by train from Lisbon, the nearest Dojo. So was utterly possible to go there a couple of time each month to do the training. And besides, that Sensei already was said to me to open a dojo in the north of Portugal. I was just needing to find a way to conciliate my work travels with the dojo routine.
But life comes once more and change everything. Now I was heading to London UK. I already was living for about 10 months in Portugal and should move again. And again I was with the same questions in my mind:
And about Niten? And the training?
This time I already knew the answer. I should open one Niten unit in London. However, because I travel too much to work was hard finding a way to conciliate everything. But then, suddenly, browsing into Niten website I just notice the UK flag.
