DAY OF THE SAMURAI - APRIL 24

por Niten - 24-abr-2019



Day of the Samurai, a day for reflection, learning and celebration!

For us, the secret to be happy is: Discipline and Party. Indissociable and interdependent things. It is not possible to live and be happy, practicing a rigid discipline without celebrating the advances and conquests. So little is viable to live only at a party without conquering anything. This applies to all aspects of daily life, whether in the Dojo, in professional life or in private life with family and friends.

The millenarian Japanese culture, studied and practiced by the old and new samurai practicing martial arts of the most diverse styles, gives clues to the way forward. Promote the strengthening of the body through the practice of a vigorous physical activity, which prevents ills, increases the quality of life and gives healthy longevity. And, at the same time, promote the strengthening of the spirit through learning and the practice of virtues that improve character and behavior as citizens.

Today we celebrate Samurai Day, always on April 24, the Day of Samurai.

Training in Bogota

por Pedro Casablanca - 19-mar-2019



Konnichiwa Mina-San
Shitsurei Shimasu,

With great joy, I would like to begin this testimonial by thanking everybody at the Colombia unit. I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to Bogota for business and vacation. Senpai Takeshi highly suggested to stop by at the Bogota Institute. At the Asociacion Cultural Japonesa, Senpai Andrés welcome me with open arms and treated me like I was one of his students. Looking forward for the training session to start. I was super excited seen Niten´s companions arriving at the dojo. We started the Saturday session with a strong Kiai, stretching, running through out the big dojo.

Strengthening my KIAI in the US

por Martins - 19-nov-2018



Knowing that I would travel to the US in November, I made plans with Senpai Takeshi during the Kenjutsu World Cup in Sao Paulo last October to visit the NITEN Dojo in Florida.

Even though it was a vacation trip with my family, I couldn’t let go the opportunity to strengthen my KIAI while there.

Having driven 4 hours in a row the night before and slept less than 4 hours, I had to practice Hagakure vote #1 to get to the DOJO in time.

Seeing all my colleagues in Kimonos and hakamas made me feel home immediately.

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,
Toshi - Sumaré-SP
