Nicolas, 5th dan of the Jinenkan school, opened the first Dojo of this organization in France, the Issen-Dojo in Toulouse.
Nicolas is 42 and has been practicing martial arts for more than twenty years. He studied among others karate for 9 years, but also aikido, viet-vo-dao, and naginata-jutsu (Todaha-buko-ryu).
He has a LEA Master's degree in Japanese and English, and lived two years in Japan, including one year of university studies, the opportunity to train shorinji-kempo too.
He began the practice of ninjutsu in 1996, and after trying several organizations, he was seducted by Master Manaka's traditionnal and really martial approach, and became his student in 2003.
His wish and goal are that some rare knowledge (even in Japan) don't disappear.
