    Default 2016 Summer Gasshuku of the Hokushin Ittō-Ryū Hyōhō (with a very special guest!)

    The seven-day Summer-Gasshuku of the Hokushin Ittō-Ryū Hyōhō at the Chiba-Dōjō in Munich was a great success! There came students from the Dōjō and Dōkōkai of the school from all over the world in order to study the school directly under Ōtsuka Yōichirō (the 6th Sōke) and Ōtsuka Ryūnosuke (the 7th Sōke). In total there were 30 participants coming from Japan, Germany, USA, Switzerland, Portugal, Hungary and Italy.
    The training was very hard and severe as the seminar focused on Gekiken, especially on Uchikomi-Geiko.
    On Saturday the 3rd of September, six students received the Kirigami Makimono from Ōtsuka Ryūnosuke-Sōke after successfully passing the exam.

    Hirata Fuhō Fujiwara no Genshin, Kendō 8. Dan Kyoshi and over 30 years of Ono-ha Ittō-Ryū and 25 years of Jikishinkage-ryū practitioner, received the Chū-Mokuroku / Menkyo of the Hokushin Ittō-Ryū Hyōhō from Ōtsuka Ryūnosuke-Sōke. Hirata-Sensei demonstrated superb skill with the sword while practicing the Kōjō-Gokui Goten no Kata and having a Gekiken Shiai-Geiko with full contact done without Bōgu, directly with Ōtsuka Ryūnosuke-Sōke, who was very impressed by the level of skill shown by Hirata-Sensei. Hirata Fuhō-Sensei thus officially joined the Hokushin Ittō-Ryū Hyōhō with doing Keppan and is now a Shihan of the Ryūha.
    He will also be demonstrating the Kōjō-Gokui Goten no Kata directly with Ryūnosuke-Sōke at the end of this year at an Enbu in Japan.

    Hirata-Sensei is as well a longtime practitioner of Zazen. On Saturday and Sunday before training he held therefore 30-minute Zazen sessions which where well-received by everyone.
