Once again the senseis honored us with their presence in our country, this being the third time visiting Spanish lands. The seminar name this year, is preceded by the word: Gashuku, that word has implicit in the idea of meeting a spirit of coexistence beyond the dojo walls. For this reason, aside from away from the busy life of the nation's capital, I came up with the idea for the seminar of Musô Jikiden Eishin Ryu iaijutsu and Ryo En Ryu naginatajutsu in my village in Benissa (Alicante). After approval of the senseis I started to organize everything with a year in advance, presenting seminar projects on City Council, the Sports Council, the Casal de la Juventud, the Sports Center Palau Sant Pere, talking to restaurants area, etc ... In all this I thank all the people who have helped me to take this seminar forward, especially to my parents, Minori sempai, Mayor Juan Bautista Roselló, Sports Councilman Arturo Poquet and the Director of Palau Sant Pere, Pere Tent, among others. Also thank my students for their assistance, especially to Carlos Tabera who drives us from one place to another. Thanks to all of them I can say that the seminar was a success, so once again, thank you.

On Thursday 18th we: Carlos, David (Kuro Hige), Kike (Aka Hige) and myself, arrived to  Benissa for prepare the details of the seminar. On Friday 19 after came Jorge, Mar and Ruben, my father and I drived to Valencia airport to pick up Sekiguchi and Shimizu sensei and sempai Minori.

                                    Back this place, all the people of the seminar sleeps well.

On Saturday 20 the course begin, and came Peter and Miriam, couple who came from far away, Slovakia to attend the seminar, which we appreciate as they demonstrate confidence in its quality and organization coming from so far away. Also joining us Antonio and Juan Luis from Cartgena, Carlos who came from Vigo, and Javier from Madrid.

After a few words to start the course, Sekiguchi Sensei began the keiko with a detailed study of Torei, any action must be regulated by the rei (respect and etiquette) and without that, we are not doing Eishin Ryu, so we must learn well greetings and school protocol. After this first contact we begin the training with the 11 kata of the first series of koryu: Seiza no Bu. Everyday iaijutsu keiko was divided into morning and afternoon, with the morning 3 hours 8:15 to 11:15 and afternoon from 18h. to 19:50. Specifically this first afternoon of Saturday we worked some kata of the second series of koryu: Tate Hiza no Bu, with particular emphasis on jujutsu bunkai behind many of them.

The naginata was developed during the morning and mid-afternoon, from 11:30 to 13:30 and from 16h. to 18h. The first day the sensei asked me whose idea was for the seminar, I told them it would be a good idea to start with the kata Shiho Giri-Shiho Barai to remove evil spirits and promote a good seminar, and finish with iaijutsu Itomagoi kata for give everyone a "farewell". Under these assumptions, the first kata in the keiko of Ryo En Ryu could not be other than Shiho Giri. It is also an important kata because the waza contains so much naginata reiho. Later continue training with the first two kata of the first series Shoden Kumitachi: Minamo and Do Giri (sono ichi, ni, san). At the end of keiko, Shimizu sensei tested me in front of the audience to sing the song-poem Rôei. I’m very lucky because a Hanshi sensei of naginata correct you, but also a University teacher in music (which was her job) will correct the traditional singing voice in the school.

On Sunday the France team joined us with Marc, George (naginata instructor Savigny in Paris) and Philippe (the Paris iaijutsu shibucho Savigny) and also Ricardo came from Valencia. The iaijutsu keiko remained focused on kata Seiza no Bu and Tate Hiza no Bu and some Bangai Gohon kata

In naginatajutsu training focused on Minamo, Do Giri and Shingetsu. This day Shimizu sensei instructed us in different and very interesting ways of Reiho for greeting, from Ogasawara Ryu Reiho, the oldest Koryu regulated, from the Heian era and focused on the protocol.

Monday was a day specially important for me and sensei since Benissa Mayor Juan Bautista Roselló and Sports Councilman Arturo Poquet received Sekiguchi and Shimizu Sensei at City Hall. The event went as follows: Reception at the office of Mayor of the two masters, exchange cards, and signing of the book of the important people who visited Benissa. The town of Benissa, represented by their rulers were presented to teachers with flowers and honorary plaque which remembers and appreciates their visit to Benissa. After this he accompanied the senseis at Plenary Hall, where policy decisions are made and where are the portraits of all the mayors of Benissa. The event was well covered by Vicente Bolufer Digital Benissa and w the radio by the Cadena Ser Radio Litoral. Newspapers Información, Levante and Canfali wrote about the important news.

The keiko iaijutsu in the 23th morning it was pretty intense practicing Okuden series, several kata Oku Iai Iwaza and from Yukizure until Shinobu Oku Iai Tachiwaza. Also we trained the two series of Bangai, Sanbon and Gohon respectively. In the afternoon again Bangai Sanbon series. If you ask me what  is kata we worked the most in the seminar would be these three kata that make up the series. Sekiguchi sensei announced the importance of these forms, and made us feel most fortunate if possible when he explained that indeed, the other groups of Eishin Ryu taught the three series over a period of between 20 and 30 years leaving for later, the Bangai as a higher kata. The problem is, according Sekiguchi sensei, that in most cases these will start practicing kata when practitioners are elderly, which totally contradicts one of the main ideas of this series: the high speed you need to perform. The class ended with a explanations of jujutsu applied to the riai of Eishin Ryu.

                          Sekiguchi sensei and I practicing some jujutsu of the riai in Eishin Ryu.

In Ryo En Ryu naginatajutsu  the morning kata was Minamo, Do Giri and Fuji San of Shoden Kumitachi, while in the afternoon we trained the series Ryu no Bu kata with Hatsunagi and Kogarashi with the interesting tantojutsu work.

                                               Jorge and I practicing the kata Fuji San.

On Tuesday morning 24 iaijutsu keiko will once again center on Bangai Sanbon kata, we also did some waza from Oku Iai Tachiwaza series. In the afternoon we returned on the first series to study the kata with special atention: Tsukekomi and Tsukikage. Finally we went to practice physical practice where Sekiguchi sensei chose me to test what is a special feature of Komei Jyuku, the hard physical training. The reward was a serving of jujutsu techniques and kowaza.

                     Many newspapers informed about the important new about the visit of both sensei.

If we have been fortunate in iaijutsu, we did too in naginatajutsu , where we work the upper series kata Tora no Bu: Nishiki Goromo and Naginata Hōzuki, combining the work of sakate and honte in tantojutsu . In the afternoon we added to practice kata in the same series Hi Omote, but the real surprise was that Shimizu sensei brought a Koromo, a clothing that is used to put over the jyuni hitoe kimono, was used in the palatial surroundings in Heian Era and after, it became almost exclusively for ceremonial use, so Shimizu sensei teach us with this clothing the idea behind the kata which is called: Nishiki Goromo.

On Wednesday 25th the start the iaijutsu keiko physically hard and it was a good morning to continue the study of Oku Iai Tachiwaza and Bangai Gohon kata, playing henka or kae waza in several forms: Kesa Guruma, Taki Guruma and Tatsu Maki.

In naginatajutsu we continue training with kata we had not seen the first series, Shoden Kumitachi: Musô, Sempu (sono ichi, ni, san), Musubi Kiri, Naginata Kojû, Naginata Zôri and Zashô.

Wednesday afternoon was the relax afternoon, where both students and senseis take a rest to return to resume the keiko with renewed energy remainder of week. My "father" and "mother" of Budo came to the luch in my family home where they could meet my parents, brother and uncles, where my father, a specialist in paella, delighted us with one of his masterpieces, while my mother did with desserts and cakes. After the enjoyable meal I took the sensei to see the fish market of Calpe, a "small Tsukiji" as we call it, as well as the views of the Peñon d'Ifach and the natural park, biological reserve of Las Salinas.

With batteries recharged, Thursday 26th keiko iaijutsu dedicated to kumitachi series, Tsume Iai Kurai not where we trained the kata: Hasso and Yae Gaki. In the afternoon, we returned once more on the interesting study Bangai Sanbon.

                                                                   My “two families”

In naginata we did it also kumitachi, with the first series kata Shoden: Fuji San, and the kata of the third series: Nishiki Goromo and Naginata Hōzuki, ending with solo kata of the second series Ryu no Bu: Hatsunagi, Namitsumi, Ryuen and Kogarashi.

Arrive on Friday and announced the end of the seminar, we were studying the iaijutsu  koryu 3 principal series: Seiza no Bu, Tate Hiza no Bu and Oku Iai (Iwaza and Tachiwaza) and some kumitachi kata of Tsume Iai no Kurai. Today Sekiguchi sensei remembered this idea I had at the beginning of the seminar, and thinking about it we dedicated to further exploring  the interesting and difficult kata  Itomagoi sono san.
