I must go to France on a duty-trip next month.
During stay, I am thinking to visit Mont St-Michel.
Are there any places where I can check my travel suitcase around Rennes Station ?

However it is difficult because most of us don't have the time/regular access to those few people that are knowledgeable in this area.


IMO, from my knowledge, I have not met the student who had the perfect Seigan-no-Kamae of kenjutsu any other than two certain Japanese Kunoichi

Don't try to find them

I'm not worried about kenjutsu or if there are kata listed in Gyokko ryu for kenjutsu I just have an interest about the kenjutsu in the Bujinkan ryu-ha.


Two shihan have menkyo kaiden which relate to kenjutsu. Why don't you learn from them ? Or ...

Hatsumi sensei already mentioned how we must think about relation between taijutsu and weapon in this DVD.

DVD BUJINKAN SERIES 19 "BUJINKAN KOPPO-JUTSU" QUEST

This is why we practice as

Gyokko-ryu Kosshijutsu Happobiken
Koto-ryu Koppojutsu Happobiken
........

Also, the Geryaku-no-maki of Gyokko-ryu is all about dealing with swords....
This isn't the best example I'm sure, but it should be obvious even from a cursory review of this section of Gyokko-ryu that sword work is dealt with to a significant degree in this school.

BINGO !

This is one of the reason why I said so.

Also please check the last part of "Fuu". It describes a way to cut with sword.

Some rate of injuries at old times.

arrow 40%
rock 10%
sword 7%

If we use this rate to 33000 soldiers that were killed at battle of Sekigahara in 1600 ...

arrow 13200
rock 3300
sword 2310

We have to think about this number not only from weapon's efficiency but number of soldiers who can hold it to battle. It is clear that arrow's production is easier and the price is cheaper than a sword. It was told that discount price of sword was about $3000 and average pocket money of samurai was about $800/year in Edo era.

Yagyu Munenori cut 7 soldiers and his older brother Yagyu Muneaki cut at least 18 soldiers by one kata in the battle.

Any way, from my experience in Bujinkan, it is obvious that Gyokko-ryu has kenjutsu. This is clear from Hatsumi sensei's kuden, practice and densho.

In Zen it tries to throw away a ego mind from sitting calmly. Posture is same but different in mind.

To practice kata correctly means to throw away a dangerous habit in your movement which always come from your ego mind and daily life custom. Its object is not standardization but sophistication of your movement. Complete kata expresses zero movement which can defang your opponents. As you know, it is difficult to disappear those bad habits. This is why we should practice it a lot of times correctly.

You can handle of any nature change, i.e. dangerous situation, around you after you master it. Because you are zero, pure. This state is what we call "万変不驚 Banpen Fugyo", I think.

Do you think people outside of Japan have misunderstood the essential meaning of kata? If so, would you care to give us your opinion on the idea behind kata?


I think misunderstanding of kata is regardless of national origin. Because the problem already existed in many schools more than 300 years ago; the middle of Edo Period.

I won't write a detail about my policy, because it may be delicate opinion for others:) So, I will suggest this word which I trust.

"You should practice kata logically, otherwise you would be a running blind boar."

Hatsumi sensei mentions this word in his video.
