Welcome to the official website of the Taikai-Deutschland 2014!
For 25 years we have known the word Taikai ("big convention") in Germany. In the year 2003 Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi finished his Taikai series in the Western world.
Thanks to Holger Kunzmann 2008 in Reutlingen and Dino Gheri 2011 in Nuremberg it has already been possible twice to have a Taikai Deutschland and to sustain the variety that Hatsumi Sensei has built up and maintained in the Bujinkan.
On the 3rd of October 2014 (German Unification Day) there will be once more a Bujinkan Taikai Deutschland. The Taikai will take place in Göttingen, in the south of Lower Saxony. As in tradition to the last two Taikais, all high ranked Bujinkan teachers of Germany will come together and teach during the event (Oct 3-5, 2014). Everyone is invited to experience great training, a special program and an unforgettable convention. We booked the Facilities for Sports (Hochschulsportzentrum) of the University, including 10 gyms, a fitness center, a swimming pool, a sauna and the RoXx climbing area. The "Stadthalle Göttingen" offers us enough space and a wonderful atmosphere for the Taikai-Gala-Evening on Saturday night.
All information about the registration, the options for staying overnight in Göttingen and other organisational questions can be found on this website.
We look forward to seeing you in October 2014 in Göttingen.
