Seminar of Ryōen ryū Naginatajutsu in Zidlochovice (Czech Republic) from 18-24 March 2017, with Shimizu Nobuko sensei (ryûsô)



This naginatajutsu seminar in the Czech Republic was very special for two reasons. First, because it was a gift that some students made to me (with all the expenses paid) in commemoration for my first 10 years as professor of budô-bujutsu. Second because this is the first seminar that Shimizu sensei performs solo. Many of us who studied Ryōen ryū also studied Musō Jikiden Eishin ryū iaijutsu with the 21 representative, Sekiguchi Komei sensei. Taking advantage of the good relationship between both sensei, many of us invited both sensei to a joint seminar of iaijutsu / naginatajutsu, however, Shimizu sensei had never left Japan to give a seminar alone.



On Friday 17 March, I leave for the Czech Republic via Frankfurt, Vienna and from there by bus to Brno and from there by train to Hrsovany u Brna and from there a last bus to the small town of Zidlochovice. We are in the southern part of the country, in the Moravia area and very close to the Austrian border. It is a region somewhat warmer and famous for its wine production. While Brno is the second largest city in the country behind Prague, Hrsovany and Zidlochovice are very small towns with a few streets, although very welcoming. The pension in which I stay is very welcoming, it has a very good restaurant where we used to dine together with Shimizu sensei, and the prices are incredibly cheap.


On this first day, Shimizu sensei welcomed us and expressed that, despite his almost 75 years, he is full of energy to see that he has some deshi so passionate about the naginata. In fact, this waste of energy we could see throughout the seminar, doing things impossible for many of the attendees, from stretching exercises to kata, through basic kion.
The first day of Ryôen ryu naginatajutsu we started practicing the kata Shihô giri / Shihô Barai followed by the kata of the first series Shôden no bu: Minamo, Dô giri sono ichi / ni, Shingetsu sono ichi / ni and Musô.


The second day of keiko Ryôen ryû naginatajutsu we reviewed the kata seen the day before and we continued the first series Shôden no bu with the remaining kata: Sempu (ichi / ni sono) Musubi Kiri, Naginata Kôju, Naginata Zôri, Zashô and Fujisan. After completing these solo kata we did some of them (Dô giri sono ichi / ni and Naginata Zôri sono ichi / ni / san) in kumitachi. Shimizu sensei has emphasized the rhythm in the kata, especially in Naginata Kôju and in Fujisan.


On the third day, in the morning we performed kihon takane, tomoe and tsuki / ishizuki tsuki. In the afternoon we continue with the practice of shidachi part of the kata of the first series: Shôden no bu. The most advanced students of Ryôen ryû were chosen by Shimizu sensei to teach and correct the beginners, especially the last kata, Fujisan.

Shimizu sensei spoke about some seminars that are advertised as international, however, there are only people from the same country. This was not the case, since during the 7-day seminar, practitioners from Austria, Poland, Slovakia, France, Germany, and myself representing Spain and of course the Czech Republic joined us.


On the fourth day of keiko de Ryôen ryû we returned to work kihon takane-tomoe and ishizuki tsuki / harai to then continue with the practice of 4 of the 5 kata from the second series Ryû no bu. In the afternoon, we resume the study of these kata: Hatsunagi, Namitsumi, Ryuen and Kogarashi, adding a study of how to perform embu.
In the keiko of the fifth day of the seminary of Ryôen ryû naginatajutsu we practiced all morning the kata Yamato Emaki. In the afternoon, we practiced two of the kata of the third series Tora no bu: Hishô and Hi Omote, preparing us to training the kata Naginata no Mai. In fact, the last part of the keiko of the afternoon we dedicate it in exclusive to practice several times the kata Naginata no Mai.


On the sixth day of keiko de Ryôen ryû naginatajutsu with Shimizu sensei, we review the kata of the third series Tora no bu: Hishô and Hi Omote, also practicing kumitachi of kata Hi Omote. In the afternoon, we continued with the practice of kata Hi Omote in kumitachi and also practiced the kata Nishiki Goromo, first in its form of shidachi (naginata) and later in kumitachi.


On the seventh day of keiko's intensive seminar of naginatajutsu with the leader Shimizu sensei, we occupied the morning to review all the kata of the first series Shôden no bu, solo and kumitachi. In the afternoon, we review the 5 kata of the second series, Ryû no bu and the kata of the third series Tora no bu: Hi Omote, Hishô and Nishiki Goromo, also we had the opportunity of train, the remaining kata: Nihen Gaeshi, Futae no Nagiri, Naginata Hôzuki and Funa Watashi. Some of them even had time to train them in kumitachi.


At the end of the last keiko, Shimizu sensei asked the large group of the Czech Republic to perform a naginatajutsu embu, ending with Shihō giri Shihō barai kata, in which Minori san (Ryōen Rinka), myself (Ryōen Ryūko) and Shimizu Sensei, we sang the poem Rōei of the school.

Also this day was special for two people, two deshi many years training in the school under the direction of Shimizu sensei, both received the last name of Ryōen and a name that credits them like adopted by the school, becoming formally part of the family Ryōen ryū. Slavovaks of the Czech Republic became Ryōen Tosei and Ilona of Germany became Ryōen Yui. They also received a katana bukuro (sheath of katana) made by the same Shimizu sensei, in honor of the event.
