Jissen Kobudo Jinenkan
Jissen Kobudo Jinenkan was founded in 1996 by Kancho Fumio Manaka, whose current base of operations are in Noda City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. Kancho Fumio Manaka founded the Jinenkan, which literally translates into "hall of nature", in order to allow students to "study the martial arts of old Japan freely and unhindered". With multiple written publications and over fifty years of experience to his name, Kancho Fumio Manaka acts as a guiding light to hundreds of students world wide.
Jissen Kobudo Jinenkan is an extensive and vast art, encompassing seven ryu-ha (schools), including Gyokko Ryu, Koto Ryu, Shinden Fudo Ryu, Kukishin Ryu, Takagi Yoshin Ryu, Togakure Ryu, and Jinen Ryu. Each of these distinct schools of combat are trained in their traditional form (kata), and ultimately come together to form a cohesive and effective martial art that is both practical and fascinating. Kancho Fumio Manaka became the first student of Sensei Masaaki Hatsumi, who himself learned under Toshitsugu Takamatsu.
Rank and progress in the Jinenkan is strictly guided and supervised. Toronto Jinenkan Training Group is an affiliate of Jinenkan Ottawa, under Sensei Andrew Keyworth. Membership to the Jinenkan provides all students with the opportunity to rank in the official Jinenkan curriculum.
Jinenkan Budokun By Kancho Fumio Manaka
Sustain your presence of mind ...
Wrath and impatience cloud your vision, and deprive you of your natural movement.
Avoid overconfidence in yourself ...
You will be unable to adapt properly to circumstances.
Accept the whole universe without protest ...
In this way, you will not fall into the opponent's strategies.
Have no stagnation in your technique ...
In this way, you will not be taken advantage of by the opponent.
Bring out the "flavor" of the technique ... At such times, you will be able to move at your best.
Practice proper basics repeatedly and you will be able to always have natural movement.
