Getting Started

Visit a training session:

All training sessions are open to interested observers. Please just schedule your visit thru our WhatsApp contact.

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 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 from 12 years old can participate in all training sessions.


Sessions are from 1 to 2 hours in length. 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.


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.

What we train


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 at the Community Center in Weston-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.

Come discover the way of the sword!
