Gaman's Annual Kurību Kai

Upcoming Events

Offered Since 2014

We are proud to have offered this event every year since 2014 and are looking forward to the 5th  Annual Kuību Kai in 2019.

Luke Molitor

Dr. Molitor is a lifelong student of the Japanese warrior arts and ways, and a senior Shihan in the Bujinkan Dojo under the auspices of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi of Noda-shi, Japan.

Semi-Private Training

In order to control the amount of training space at the event, we have made it semi-private. Please contact us or visit our Facebook site to learn how to RSVP.

Gaman Dojo is proud to host Yuta Sakai for a special lecture on the world-famous Japanese ninja.

We hope that you mark your calendars for Sunday, March 10, 2019 (exact time TBD).

 

Yuta is a staff member at the Mie University International Ninja Research Center and works on the latest, interesting discoveries about the truth of ninja and their history. Following his life-long fascination of ninja, he specializes in ninjutsu from the Meiji to early Showa period and will be in Cleveland, Ohio for one day to share his findings with us.

The Mie University International Ninja Research Center is located in Mie Prefecture in the southern half of Japan's main island. Mie Prefecture is home to the city of Iga, the birthplace of a historically prominent ninja school. On July 1, 2017, the Mie University and city of Iga opened the International Ninja Research Center. The Center has since focused on uncovering "the educational activities and research connected with the ninja (primarily focusing on the Iga region) and dispatching the results of this research...", according to their official website.

Before Kata – The Basics of the Gyokko and Koto Ryu

Separate from the above lecture, Sean Askew has graciously offered to teach a Taijutsu session from 7-9 pm on Saturday, March 9. It is absolutely free and open to everyone who attends the talk on Sunday.

 

Sean is the president of the Bujinkan Kokusai Renkoumyo (BKR) as well as a world-traveled martial artist, linguist, scholar, and author. We look forward to having him at the Gaman Dojo in Cleveland and he promises "there will be something interesting for everyone of all levels"!

SloFlo @ theDojo with Cultivate Yoga

Gaman Dojo partnered with Cultivate Yoga to help spread free flow session to the Greater Cleveland Area. Attendees were encouraged to bring your mats and blocks, but extras were provided by Cultivate Yoga.

A HUGE thank you to Scott from Gaman for opening the dojo extra early to get the yogis setup!

Sean O'Brien Workshop

A great way to improve is to train with people from other places!

Sean O'Brien generously came to visit us from Michigan for a special workshop for our members. We also had dinner in Lakewood afterwards so that the students who attended could ask Sean questions about training, his experiences in the Bujinkan and martial arts-related academics.
