Every year between the last week of January and the first of February held a seminar in Katsuura (Chiba) that gathers Jyuku Komei practitioners around the world in an intensive seminar. However, this year was a special occasion, and therefore the invitation so far in advance: the celebration of this year's 70th birthday Sekiguchi sensei, called kôki a traditional Japanese celebration held at that age is met.

Katsuura is a coastal town in Chiba prefecture, traditionally fishing, famous for its tuna, bonito, rice and especially peanuts. Katsuura offers to the tourists a beautiful bay, the sea and the surrounding mountains. It is very close to Tôkyô, less than an hour on the train Wakashio.

Katsuura Budokan belongs to the University of Budô. There are held multidisciplinary  seminars of various martial arts: kendoô, kyûdô, Jukendô, atarashii naginata (naginatadô), Shorinji Kenpô Judô, Karatedô and Aikidô, among others. Katsuura Budôkan is also linked to Nippon Budôkan and the organization of the Nippon Kobudô Kyôkai (which regulates and organizes Koryû bujutsu of Japan).

The facilities consist of: rooms for four people with tatami room, dining room, a large hot tub, a big dôjô, a small dôjô and Kyûdojo. Training occurred as follows for many days (especially those we do naginata once Shimizu sensei came to the facility): 5:00 -7: 00 Musô Jikiden ryu Eishin iaijutsu. 7:00 a.m. Breakfast. 9: 00-10: 00 Ryôen ryu naginatajutsu. 10:00 to 12:00 iaijutsu. 24:00 Food. 13 - 14h naginatajutsu. 14 - 17h iaijutsu. 18h Dinner. 19 -20h. naginatajutsu. 20 -21h iaijutsu. Overall, for those who also practiced Ryoen ryû naginatajutsu Keiko were 10 hours a day. As Sekiguchi sensei once said: "This is not just a seminar, it is Shugyô".

There have been many groups Komei Juku who have come to the Katsuura seminar representing many of the countries: Australia, United States, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, South Korea and of course Japan.
From the Spain Shibu we came Sekiguchi Kenryū and Carlos Tabera, who has become part of the family Muso Jikiden ryu Eishin iaijutsu Komei Jyuku by signing by the school. In addition to the good place that has left Spain for their dedication in keiko each day, I'm very proud of him for having taken this important step in a Koryu. It is now that we can say without doubt that belongs to this school and become part of its history as a deshi more. Last year presented his request to Sekiguchi sensei, and after he accept it, on the grounds of Katsuura proceeded to fill in the forms that make him one of the 3 unique official members of Komei mjer Jyuku in Spain. At this stage, there is much to thank the invaluable work of the school secretary, Sonoko Nakano sensei, helping Carlos in every step of delivering the papers.

On January 28, Carlos and I were at Tokyo Station, where we would take the train to Katsuura Wakashio. On the way we met with Liam and Robert, from Komei Jyuku Australia. Then on the train we meet Sekiguchi sensei, Obiki sensei.
The first day keiko was short but intense, 3 hours followed by the series of kumitachi Tsume Iai, specifically the first 6 kata from tate-hiza. The beautiful wooden dojo has tested our knees with these first 3 hours of kata floor.
As curious detail, we are sharing the pavilion with a senior seminar of Jukendô (fence with bayonets). In the thermal baths I have had a very interesting chat with one of their sensei.

On the second day of Keiko in Katsuura (29 January) we worked the third series Oku Iai Tachiwaza and kumitachi series Tsume Iai no Kurai, paying special attention to the kata: Tsubame Gaeshi, Ganseki Otoshi and Suigetsu Tô. Today the group has grown, with the representants of Germany and also Onoe san.
Like other days, we have shared the dojo with the Jukendo group, and at the end of our training, the dojo is filled with several groups: kendo, judo, aikido and atarashii naginata. There was also a child Kendo competition.

On the fourth day seminar (Jan. 31), we beggin with a hard kihon keiko of kata Oroshi, very interesting training. Morning keiko was dominated by the part of tachiwaza series kumitachi Tsume Iai no Kurai. During afternoon keiko we continue with the kumitachi, so important in our line and ended with a thorough study of the kata Hayanuki Chudan and Iwanami, Urokogaeshi, Namigaeshi and Takiotoshi kata from Tate no bu Hiza series and Kasumi kata from Oku Iai Iwaza.

On the fifth day (February 1) we were training the 11 kata  from Seiza no bu. We also went back to work the kata Hayanuki Chudan morote and kumitachi series of 11 kata Tsume Iai no Kurai. At night, Carlos Tabera signed the papers that make him an official member of monjin of school  who allow him to carry the kyûmaisasa kamon MJER Komei Jyuku. This honor comes to him after more than 4 years of hard work and dedication to the Koryu, promptly attending training dojo Spain, seminars of his Shibucho (Sekiguchi Kenryū), seminars of 21º representative Sekiguchi Komei sensei in Spain and also in other countries like France. With this, Carlos Tabera becomes one of the 3 monjin authorized in Spain: Sekiguchi Kenryū, Jorge Garcia and Carlos Tabera. At the same time also became a member of the Nihon Kobudo Kyokai organization that regulates and protects koryu in Japan. For Shibu of Spain, this is a great achievement and a great honor, seeing as the school grows with members of high technical quality, high cultural level and human warmth.

On the seventh day (February 3) Was Setsubun celebration, and as you can look on the picture the end of winter is celebrated. One of the traditions is though some roasted beans to people dressed like oni while saying: "Oni wa soto, fuku wa uchi!" (Demons down, luck in!). Also, you can eat the same beans as years you have. And also as a current tradition, ehomaki, a large roll of maki sushi that you must eat all in one go, without pause, without drinking in between eating. Thanks to the kitchen of Katsuura Budokan made us participate in this festival.

Once again I have been honored with the participation in the embu thanks to Sekiguchi sensei (21º representative MJER iaijutsu Komei Jyuku).

We did the kata: Shinobu (Oku Iai Tachiwaza), Taki Guruma (Bangai Gohon) and Hayanami (Bangai Sanbon). Then I made a kata kumitachi with Daniels from Austria (Innsbruck): Tsubame Gaeshi (Tsume Iai no Kurai).

Ryôen ryû naginatajutsu began with Shiho Giri / Shiho Barai, by Shimizu sensei, Ryoen Rinka (Japan-France), Ryoen Terumichi (Germany), Sekiguchi Ôsamenaminoshin (Mexico) and Ryoen Ryuko (Spain).

The last day I spent with sensei was on February 7, the day that we attended together the 39th edition of the embu of the Nihon Kobudo Kyôkai at Nippon Budokan. Because the high number of schools that make up the federation Koryu bujutsu, only participation in alternate years is allowed. MJER iaijutsu Sekiguchi sensei participated last year and this until 2017 will no longer participate. This time we were spectators. Sekiguchi sensei positioned on the table of the Soke and representatives of schools, and others we move into the stands where we could enjoy the best and biggest show of Koryu bujutsu. I sat next to Shimizu sensei and I was privileged to hear her comments on different ryuha she knew. Some of the participating schools can be found: Hozoin ryû sojutsu, Morishige ryû hôjutsu, Shinto Muso ryu jojutsu, Ono ha Itto-ryu kenjutsu, Daito Ryu aikijutsu, Yagyû Shinkage ryu kenjutsu, Shintô Munen ryû kenjustu, Nitten Ichi ryu kenjutsu, Ogasawara ryu kyujutsu ...
