The school of classical Japanese martial arts Taiyou e no Michi, beside the schools of Bujinkan, also nurtures other koryu arts, among them Ono ha Itto ryu Kenjutsu (Takeda den). We are members of the organization Daito Ryu Aikibudo Daito Kai, led by sensei Antonino Cherta, the only nonjapanese shihan for Daito ryu Aikijujutsu. Therefore, in his honor, every year we keep this traditional seminar named: „Kenjutsu under the stars of Lipac“.
The school Ono ha Itto ryu was mandatory for the members of the powerful samurai clan Takeda. The legendary warrior Sokaku Takeda, also known as the last samurai, had gotten a menkyo kaiden (license for acquired knowledge) for this kenjutsu ryu ha.
This is what we eagerly awaited for months. Two-day outdoor training, on the top of the legendary mountain Lipac. During the day, three trainings will be held, and the evening will be reserved for hanging out around the fire, followed by tasty beans and several beers.
