Report of the Bujutsu Gasshuku Spain 2017: Musô Jikiden Eishin ryû iaijutsu and Ryôen ryû naginatajutsu



This year we celebrate the ninth time that Sekiguchi Komei sensei (21 representative of the school Musô Jikiden Eishin ryû iaijutsu) came to our country, being the first two times for embu and the next 7 organized by the hombu dojo and focused on development and trained of his school of iaijutsu in Spain.

In the same way, it is the sixth time that Shimizu Nobuko sensei (leader of the school Ryôen ryû naginatajutsu) comes to Spain, being the first time to perform demonstrations and the next five to teach and develop the study of naginatajutsu in Spain.


On the 24th of August their flight arrived to Madrid, at the airport two of the monjin of Eishin ryû, Carlos Tabera and myself were waited for the sensei there. From there we went to Atocha train station where we took a Ave high velocity train to Alicante where my father was waiting for us to take us to Benissa, where my family welcome the sensei with an Argentine barbecue.



On the 25th the seminar had not yet opened its doors and we took advantage of some private keiko. First in the morning, Jorge Garcia and Ryôen Ryûko (as the two most advanced students of naginatajutsu in Spain) trained together with Shimizu sensei the kumitachi of the kata of the third series Tora no Bu: Hishô, Futae no nagiri, Naginata hôzuki and Funa watashi .
In the afternoon there was also a private training, in this case for the iaijutsu monjin of Spain: Jorge Garcia, Carlos Tabera and Sekiguchi Kenryû. Our sensei, Sekiguchi Komei jyukuchô centered the keiko on the advanced forms of kenjutsu / iai kumitachi of the school: Tsume Iai no Kurai.
That same night we had a dinner at the famous Cantó Restaurant for the three members and the two sensei.



The day 26 started the seminar on a regular basis. In the morning Shimizu sensei asked me to direct the warming up keiko and kihon while she was making corrections. After this, we practice the first kata of the first series: Shôden no bu: Minamo, Dô giri sono ichi / sono ni y Shingetsu sono ichi / sono ni.
In the afternoon the keiko of iaijutsu began by the series of 5 kata Tôhô Gohon, followed by different variations and corrections. There was also time for a very hard keiko based in kihon men / kirioroshi down to the ground, making several lengths of the sports pavilion both forward and backward.



On the 27th, the keiko of naginatajutsu began with a series of stretches and kihon, this time already directed by Shimizu sensei. Then we went to practice the first 3 kata that we saw the previous day, followed by the following two: Musô y Senpu sono ichi / sono ni. After the break we continued with the kata seen yesterday but in kumitachi version and we ended up seeing the kata of the third series Hi Omote and Hishô in the role of shidachi / naginata. We finished the day with the study of the kata of the second series Ryû no bu.
In the afternoon Sekiguchi sensei started the session of iaijutsu with more kihon men / kirioshi making lengths of pavilion going up and down. In
this case the physical training did not end here as we were practicing repeatedly and throughout the pavilion kumitachi kata from tate hiza Hassô belonging to the series Tsume Iai no kurai. After that, we go on to review some kata of the third series Oku Iai Tachiwaza as well as the first two kata of the series of kenjutsu Tachi Uchi no Kurai Nanahon no Kata: De Ai and Kobushidori.



The keiko of naginatajutsu of day 28 began like so many other days, with some kihon and stretches. After this, we were reviewing the two kata of the third series we saw yesterday. The rest of the day is dedicated to the study of the kata Naginata no mai, a conglomerate of eight kata of different series thought as renzoku waza to train different concepts of the three series.
The keiko of iaijutsu today was also preceded by kihon, in this case, kata Yae Gaki of the series of kumitachi Tsume Iai no Kurai. After this, we made some of the kata in tatehiza of the series Oku Iai Iwaza and the foot part Oku Iai Tachiwaza. To finish, we were performing the whole series of kenjutsu / kumitachi Tachi Uchi no Kurai Nanahon no Kata.



The day 29 began with an intense session of naginatajutsu with the practice of kata Naginata no Mai, which in turn has 8 other kata of different series. After this, Shimizu sensei proposed something to us, which, although not strange in his seminars, did astonished many of the participants. He asked us each to do an enbu of something that we had trained except for iaijutsu or naginatajutsu. Anything goes, it does not have to be budo. In this case, participants performed demonstrations of: Aikido, Ping pong, basketball, percussion, Karate ... and taking advantage of the fact that we were training on a basketball court, we split into two teams to play a basketball game at two points. It was a very fun experience that joined the group and made us change the chip for a moment before proceeding with the keiko of naginatajutsu. To finish Shimizu sensei offered us a very very special enbu. After this we finished the session with practice in kumitachi of some kata of the first series as well as the totality of the kata of the second series Ryû no bu.
In iaijutsu we start with an exercise of kesa gake in morote. For this Sekiguchi sensei was indicating the different cut points as well as the angles of different kesa. After this, we went deeper into the study of kata Hayanami of the series Bangai Sanbon. The rest of the keiko was occupied by kumitachi of the series Tsume Iai no Kurai. As you can see, the line that works Sekiguchi sensei attaches great importance to working in pairs of kenjutsu, almost as much as to Iai alone.



On the 30th, the keiko of naginatajutsu began with the review of kata of the first series, Shôden Kumitachi, to continue with the Shihô Giri / Shihô Barai kata. It is then that Shimizu sensei improvised a stage and requested us that we to perform 3 kata in individual enbu. Because one of Ivan's kata was Nishiki Goromo, Shimizu sensei decided to finish the day's keiko with an approach to this third kata of the third series Tora no bu.
The afternoon of iaijutsu began with an intense work of the kihon Sôdôme and Saotome, forwards and backwards until covering several lengths of the sports pavilion. After this we made the three kata of the series Bangai Sanbon. To finish, we returned again on Tsume Iai no kurai, paying special attention to the unique waza of jujutsu of our school: Iwanami / Namigaeshi of which Sekiguchi sensei showed us different Henka waza from the oral transmission of the school.
At night we all went forn an ice cream with the sensei and to spend a relaxed moment with them apart of the keiko. The sensei gifted us a bottle of sake with gold inside and we all did kampai/cheers with them. Joy gave way to the songs and we each sing one or two songs, including the sensei themselves.



The end of the seminar is near and Shimizu sensei wanted to repeat some of the work we did: Shôden no bu, Ryû no bu and Naginata no Mai. To finish the keiko, we returned on the kata of the third series: Nishiki Goromo and also we were lucky to practice Nihen Gaeshi of the same superior series.
In the keiko of iaijutsu of this day 31 we returned to the beginning, working during most of the afternoon the first six kata of the series Seiza no bu. Also this was the day of the tôrei both zarei and tachirei. We dedicate at least an hour to the study of the different bowings that are inside Musô Jikiden Eishin ryû. To finish, we returned on some of the waza of the series of kumitachi Tachi Uchi no Kurai Nanahon no kata.


During day 1 the naginatajutsu keiko we returned to the first series Shôden no bu in its kumitachi version. Then we also played the kata Nishiki Goromo and Nihen Gaeshi from the third series. On this day, Shimizu sensei also allowed beginners to practice the ken / uchidachi part. Like other years, the keiko of Ryôen ryû was not exempt from the study of reihô, as much with respect to the arms, as other things like to sit, to receive diplomas, to bow, etc.
In the afternoon of iaijutsu we continued with the work of the series Seiza no bu to continue with Oku Iai tachiwaza and finally to return on kumitachi kata of the series Tachi Uchi no kurai Nanahon no kata.



With day 2 came the end of Gasshuku, because the sensei needed time to packtjeir luggage, the keiko of this day was reduced from 8 to 4 hours, occupying two hours each of the disciplines.
As always, we started with naginatajutsu, where Shimizu sensei urged us to do a review on the first two series and also part of the third, paying special attention in this last keiko to the role of shidachi / naginata.
The next two hours corresponded to Sekiguchi sensei and iaijutsu. We started the keiko with kihon, to continue with an exercise of dodging and counterattack against different adversaries. Finally, we returned on the Bangai Sanbon series to finish the keiko.
However, the training was far from over, and we were not going to go home if we had sweated the keikogi well. At the last hour came some spectators, reason that took advantage of the sensei to urge us to make an enbu.
In the case of Ryôen ryû naginatajutsu, we perform the kata: Nishiki Goromo, Fuji San, Minamo, Naginata Kôju and Kogarashi.
In the enbu of Musô Jikiden Eishin ryû iaijutsu we perform: Oku Iai Tachiwaza, Oku Iai Iwaza, Hayanuki Chûdan Morote, Hayanuki Chûdan Katate, Bangai Sanbon, Bangai Gohon / Tôryû Bangai and the kenjutsu / kumitachi kata of Tsume Iai no Kurai.



Finished the seminar, we returned to Madrid to take the plane to Haneda via Frankfurt, I only have to thank both of them greatly for moving another year to Spain, and dedicate in an altruistic way a seminar of both physical and mental intensity to their Spanish deshi . We have been left with a lot of material to work on and many corrections, both in iaijutsu and in naginatajutsu. Apart there are some surprises that we proposed / granted both sensei and we will inform you. Just say that next year's meeting / Gasshuku will not be in Spain ... but a little further ... and with a very special surprise.

Before finalizing this report I did not want to stop thanking all the people and institutions that have made it possible. To the Exc. Benissa City Council with its Department of Sports and Youth for the facilities of both the sports hall and the hostel, students who attended the seminar for their dedication and help in the organizational work of the course, those who despite not being able to come, contributed their monetary assistance, to Luis and his father for the work of filming so great that they realized and that we hope to be able to see in brief, my wife and parents for all the logistical support and of transport and to those that moved of points as distant as Madrid , Zaragoza, England, France and Cuba to attend this seminar so unrepeatable. EVERYONE, thank you very much.
