International Seminar, Belgium 2018

We practice the Takeda Ryu Nakamura Ha (the Nakamura style of the Takeda school).

It is the Japanese Martial Art of the Samurai, full of respect and tradition.

Takeda Budo (Martial Arts) is a 'Sobudo' (comprehensive Martial Arts).

It is composed of different disciplines, the main disciplines are:

  • without weapon:
    • Aikido / Aiki-jutsu (the art of gathering and combining forces)
    • Jukenpo (combining old jujutsu techniques with punching and kicking)
  • with weapon:
    • Iaido (the way of the sword)
    • Jodo (the way of the stick)
    • Kendo (swordsmanship)

At a high level, all the disciplines become one to fight like a Samurai.

The video below is an interview of the founder of Takeda Ryu Nakamura Ha, Soke Nakamura Hisashi:
