Katsujinken

Tenshin Shôden Katori Shintô Ryū is the oldest extant Japanese martial art. The techniques are traditionally trained in the form of kata-bujutsu.

In the Katsujinken-dojo we train: Kenjutsu (swordfighting), Iaijutsu (sword drawing), Bôjutsu (staff), Naginatajutsu (glaive), Ryôtô (two swords), Kodachi (short sword) en Yari (spear).

After months, anyone who wants to can start training again from 2 September. The definitive training protocol can be found below. It seems like a long list, but it is nothing you cannot come up with with common sense. The first training sessions on Wednesday and Sunday will focus on testing the protocol and measuring the space in the room. We will also have to look at how the ventilation works.
A number of training scenarios are possible. Solo training is of course no problem if there is enough space. As for partner training: we have to experiment with performing the kata at a somewhat greater distance.
It is important that people feel comfortable with the situation. If you feel that the risk is still too great, no problem, but let us know.

KATSUJINKEN TRAINING PROTOCOL

  1. Participants in the training do not arrive at the room earlier than 10 minutes before the start of the training.
  2. People with health complaints (for example a cold, fever, sore throat, respiratory diseases, breathing problems) stay at home.
  3. Before, during and after training, everyone will keep at least 1.5 meters apart, except for exercises with a partner.
  4. The teacher will function as a point of contact for the participants and for the employees of Sporthallen Zuid for compliance with the Covid19 rules. If the teacher cannot be present, he will be replaced by one of the deshi in consultation.
  5. Everyone has the right to point out (unconscious) violations of the rules to fellow deshi and the teachers.
  6. Before entering the hall, everyone disinfects their hands and ensures that their feet are clean. A jar of sanitizing fluid will be put in the cupboard and placed by the door during workouts.
  7. Training is allowed on tabi or sneakers.
  8. If possible, participants will change completely or partially at home. Those for whom this is not possible will either change in the changing rooms of the hall or in the hall itself, at least 1.5 meters away from others. A maximum of three people are allowed in a dressing room at a time. They ensure that there is also enough space at the door for entering and exiting.
  9. It is not possible to use the showers or the changing rooms downstairs in the sports halls.
  10. During exercises, everyone is placed so that he or she can keep at least five feet away from others throughout the exercise, with the exception of the training partner.
  11. Training takes place without ki-ai.
  12. Everyone uses only their own weapons. (NB: we will make an inventory of the common training weapons and see to what extent we can ‘lend’ them to Deshi for the duration of the pandemic. It is also worth considering purchasing your own bo and / or wakizashi. in Amsterdam at Aikibudo. Long weapons can be placed in the cupboard with the name of the owner or ‘borrower’ on it, and may not be used by others.)
  13. Only the teacher or his substitute (see point 4) may open the cupboard and unpack things. If necessary, he uses gloves or a cloth.
  14. Coughing and sneezing is done only in the elbows.
  15. Participants who do not train, if possible, wait their turn in the hallway, if there is not enough space in the hall.
  16. Participants bring their own filled water bottles from home.
  17. Mouth masks are allowed, but not required.
