  • 2016 Summer Gasshuku of the Hokushin Itto-ryu Hyoho (with a very special guest!)

    The seven-day Summer-Gasshuku of the Hokushin Itto-ryu Hyoho at the Chiba-Dojo in Munich was a great success! There came students from the Dojo and Dokokai of the school from all over the world in order to study the school directly under Otsuka Yoichiro (the 6th Soke) and Otsuka Ryunosuke (the 7th Soke). In total there were 30 participants coming from Japan, Germany, USA, Switzerland, Portugal, Hungary and Italy.
    The training was very hard and severe as the seminar focused on Gekiken, especially on Uchikomi-Geiko.
    On Saturday the 3rd of September, six students received the Kirigami Makimono from Otsuka Ryunosuke-Soke after successfully passing the exam.

    Hirata Fuho Fujiwara no Genshin, Kendo 8. Dan Kyoshi and over 30 years of Ono-ha Itto-ryu and 25 years of Jikishinkage-ryu practitioner, received the Chu-Mokuroku / Menkyo of the Hokushin Itto-ryu Hyoho from Otsuka Ryunosuke-Soke. Hirata-Sensei demonstrated superb skill with the sword while practicing the Kojo-Gokui Goten no Kata and having a Gekiken Shiai-Geiko with full contact done without Bogu, directly with Otsuka Ryunosuke-Soke, who was very impressed with the level of skill shown by Hirata-Sensei. Hirata Fuho-Sensei thus officially joined the Hokushin Itto-ryu Hyoho with doing Keppan and is now a Shihan of the Ryuha.
    He will also be demonstrating the Kojo-Gokui Goten no Kata directly with Ryunosuke-Soke at the end of this year at an Enbu in Japan.

    Hirata-Sensei is as well a longtime practitioner of Zazen. On Saturday and Sunday before training he held therefore 30-minute Zazen sessions which where well-received by everyone.

    Attached a few pics.
