Hi, if you would like to purchase a copy of my first novel- have a look at http://www.lulu.com/shop/stuart-campb ... ack/product-21684187.html

I am in the process of putting the second book in the series up very soon. Has a strong connection to the Bujinkan history.

For me the Ryu-ha are like the basics of an apprenticeship. This gives you the exposure to so many different themes, ideas and principles that ultimately lead to a more rounded perspective on life. So that when you become the so-called "Journeyman" you have at your disposal so many options (Keys) to understand the nature of things around you.
I think I realised this on my last trip to Japan, when learning swordwork from one of the Shiahan. However, it was not that I realised how much I knew, but totally the opposite-how much I didn't.
Without the correct exposure to the framework via practicing the Waza from each Ryu-I saw how many gaps there were in my Taijutsu etc. Not to mention that there is a chronological history of combat in each of the different Ryu. After all, with the emphasis on survival, each Ryu provides and historical account of how to defend oneself at different times in history-I believe this is what Soke is saying when he refers to the 4th dimension of time. This then keys into understanding the timing and rhythm of any combat situation and to life itself.

Hi Guys;

I am looking for some plans for a Kamidana that I can make for my Dojo.
Is anyone able to help or point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance

Thanks Kent;

There are a lot of similarities between writing and Taijutsu when composing something like a novel-including what I would consider the Main aspects;

Nagare - the flow of the story
Ukemi-in the editing and "Palatability" to enable the reader to easily absorb the story
Tai Sabaki - Presenting different angles to the reader for them to appreciate various perspectives on the topic.
Ishi-the intention of the writer to purvey a particular message.

So writing becomes training in a metaphoric sense. Like my training, I consider the reader, not as an adversary, but someone to forge an understanding with, through the medium of the pen (Keyboard......)and of course the story.
