Self-defense Aikido School Genshinkai

Self-defense aikido & Bushido Iai-Sword School teaches easy to understand, usable self-defence.

Founder Nariyasu Toyosaki has trained in Aikido from childhood; taught at workshops in more 10foregin countries and trained in several martial arts.

"Gen"means root. "Shin" means mind or spirit.

Genshinkai we explore Japanese culture, mind and spirit, through Aikido.

This is a martial art that represents traditional culture and spirit through which we can discover the roots of this spirit by study and practice.

Kif_0172 Recently public or personal safety has been worsening in Japan.

Our long years as safe and peaceful society have come to an end.

We may need to defend ourselves.

That is why I not only teach Aikido, but also practical self-defense that can be applid in real life. this includes how to fall down safely on any surface as well as techniques to subdue and repel an assailant.

Basically, my idea of Japanese martial arts and the Genshinkai philosophy is that although they were created for survival it is not necessary to use them to win but to "not lose." .

We do not have to beat anybody but, in turn, we should not lose to anybody.

Bushido Iai-Sword School Iaienkukai Iai practice

Teaches easy to understad Bushido Iai-Sword School.

Chife Instroctor Nariyasu Toyosaki has trained in Aikido from childhood; taught at workshops in more 10 foreign countries and trained in several martial arts.

Start with Suburi(cutting movement), and sword drawing and sheathing from the shething from the Saya (scabbard) on the waist.

Kif_0206Technique are practiced in Kata(forms, or practice patterns) to allow development at ones own pace.

After Kata are practiced and analyzed, wooden swords are used to practice with a partner to learn body movement, proper distance and how use the Katana (sword) as part of the body.

Finally we search for the underlying meaning.

There is a very deep and significant connection between body the movement of martial arts and Japanese sword arts such as Iaido and Kendo(kenjustu). The sword is treated as an extension of the body, just like an arm. We emphasize practicing how to connect the weapon to body movements. 

Training also includes proper treatment of the Katana and swordsmanship etiquette. To practice real Japanese martial arts and genuine Samurai arts, it is necessary to understand these points.

Enku

Teaches easy to understand Bushido Iai-Sword School.

Chife Instructor Nariyasu Toyosaki has trained in Aikido from childhood; taubht at workshops in more 10 foreign countries and trained in several martial arts.

"En" means circle or spiral. "Ku" means empty.

When practicing for extended perriod of time we unknowningly return to the begining. If we get lost or confused we go back to the basics and start over.  This basic style is very important.

Everything is like circle, which grows into a spiral. The spiral of progress or growth is based on a circle, which always returns to it's start. 

This is "En".

Kif_0212  We use Kata (form) in practice. Kata is form but one should not become overly attached to form in and of itself.

There is two meanings to the word Kata, one is flexible form and the other is rigid form. 

In reality, form should be shapeless. this is "Ku." In Japanese  martial arts as in Zen, your feeling should be as an empty vessel.

Historically, martial arts were for survival.

Now the purpose of Japanese martial arts is not necssarily to win but to "not lose."

We do not have to beat anybody but, in turn, we should not lose to anybody.

If you agree with this way of thinking, join us.
