Shinden Fudō Ryū Daken Taijutsu Seminar
Two intense days, filled with kaname, and a lot of learning opportunity for all the students who attended, and it ended with the first Sakki Test given in the country, an unbelievable experience for all of us, and especially for the new Shidōshi (me).
Before our first class was held in Dubai, our mentor, Dai Shihan Arnaud Cousergue calligraphied a Kanji to be inserted in our Kamidana. This Kanji was Fudō-Myōō, a powerful Japanese warrior deity, and one of the five Wisdom Kings.
His name means "immovable protector" and he burns away all impediments and defilements. He carries a rope in his left hand to bind injustice and control violence, and a sword in his right hand to cut through ignorance and illusion. It was decided that he would become our patron deity, and we became the Bujinkan Fudō-Myōō Dōjō.
