Theme: Kenjutsu and how it directly relates to Taijutsu
The Kenzen Na Seikatsu Bujinkan Shibu is proud to sponsor Shidoshi Aric Keith, 9th Dan for another two-day training event in San Jose, CA. on October 5th and 6th, 2013. This two-day seminar will focus on Kenjutsu 剣術 (literally, “sword technique” or “sword craft”) and how it directly relates to and influences your Taijutsu 体術 (“body technique”).
What to Bring:
Please bring a Boken – wooden practice sword and if you have one a Fukiro Shinai – leather covered or padded bamboo training sword. A Fukiro Shinai will enable you and your partner to train at a more realistic intensity, enhancing the experience. If you do not have a padded shinai, I recommend purchasing one from Budo Buki (they can be found on face book or on the internet at http://budobuki.com/.
Bring your own water and snacks. There will be a lunch break as well. There are many places to eat in the surrounding area of the park.
Saratoga Creek Park (5399 Lassen Ave, San Jose, CA 95129). We will meet in the center of the park (same location as the previous seminars).

About Shidoshi Aric Keith:
Aric Keith began his training in the early 1990′s and very quickly became a student of Bill Atkins. For the next ten plus years Aric traveled around the country training with Atkins sensei. He has also traveled to Japan many times with and without his instructor to further his training with Hatsumi sensei and the various shihan of the Bujinkan dojo. Having received his Godan in 1999, Aric continues to refine his technique, seeking inspiration and instruction from Hatsumi sensei and Atkins sensei and many others.
