Event Details

Musashi Kai Europe (in collaboration with Kendo Gent) warmly welcomes kendokas to our Musashi Kai nito kendo-seminar 2024!

What is Musashi Kai nito kendo?”

Niten Ichi-ryu Musashi Kai is a modern branch of Miyamoto Musashi’s school of swordsmanship, Niten Ichi-ryu. Musashi Kai’s purpose is to apply Musashi’s teachings & techniques to modern kendo, and promote beautiful & strong use of two shinais in kendo. The school is currently headed by shihan Tenshin Nakamura.

To put it simply, we’ll be learning how to do kendo wielding two shinais – nito kendo.

Who is this seminar FOR? Could it be for ME?

It could be, if you fit one of the following:

– You want to learn nito kendo
– You already practice nito kendo
– You want to learn how to fight AGAINST nito kendo
– You just want to see what all the hype is about

No prior experience in nito kendo is necessary, you’ll get by just fine. Just please be at least ikkyu-shodan level in kendo and at least 18 years old. This is so you have a basic understanding of tenouchi and can receive katate-waza safely.


I’m in! What equipment do I need?

Mostly just your usual kendo stuff – hakama, gi, bogu and shinai. You will also need a nito kendo shinai set – daito and shoto. You can make these yourself from old shinai (check youtube) or purchase a ready-made pair.

Overall, it’s a pretty unique opportunity to learn nito kendo in Europe!
