Unlike the other Martial Arts that claim to come from semi-obscure or secret traditions passed from one generation of master to another, currently in Modern Kenjutsu* there are no such a secrets.
being equally a martial discipline and a sport, its essence consists in promoting a set of authentic values meant to help the develop of each practitioner and the society in a general way.
therefore, each kenshi is developing in an sincere environment governed by wisdom and honor.
on this line, novices and inferior ranks may have access and can observe easily in Dojo the advanced techniques from the very beginning and also the difference between them and the older practitioners.
the secret is not in the number of techniques known by each kenshi, but rather in the way of applied the learned technique.
in the end, it does not matter if you know only one technique or a chain of one hundred movements, but the attitude you may learn in the Dojo and the ability to use it in everyday life.
*Kenjutsu – notion formed by joining the Japanese words “Ken” translated as “Sword” and “Jutsu” translated as “Technique”.
used in this context, Kenjutsu does not refer to any traditional form prior to Meiji Restoration.
