    Kobudo has given "international" status on the Paulista Sports Award with the honored Maria Flavia Saieva, one of the first students of kenjutsu, iaijutsu, and jojutsu of Argentina´s dojo of Niten Institute. An Argentine student with the highest grade of kenjutsu by Sensei Jorge Kishikawa - founder of Niten and idealizer of the Method (KIR) - Ken Intensive Recuperation - Marina was the first woman in Argentina to receive the Shoden graduation from Niten Ichi Ryu style. "I found in Kobudo a way to wake me up spiritually. Everything I learn I apply on a daily basis, how to be more resourceful and work as a team," says Marina.
