Greetings!

First of all, congratulations to your friend because he has come a long way.

The tanto is a very good idea, IMO I would also consider a scroll and or a bonsai (a living gift that will grow and change thru the coming years, just as a budoka) but that depends if your friend has a greenthumb.

My 2 cents.

Ohhhh those Takagi trainings were good, although we had makeshift hakama. I still got mine but is quite bad, the fabric is silky and airy but alas it give you a sort of feeling of wearing one.

I always tuck it on the sides when wearing it.

You know I'll also train in hakama this comming week, thanks for the inspiration!

Greetings!

I was going through some old notes (2001) about my first days of training and I found out a "Hacho Ken".

Doing some research I've found it's Hachō Ken with a long "o" at the end. Does anybody know the kanji for this? BTW: do you use it during training?

I always try to ask for the kanji since my learning method is to relate the name to the actual technique.

Thanks!

Thank you for the kanji.

And yes, I know better searching in other houses what can be found in mine, but let's face it kanji is quite an obscure aspect of the Bujinkan not only for the complexity of Japanese language but also for Hatsumi sensei's use of homophones.

Thank you once again for your time and knowledge.

Ohhh it's been a while since I posted something here.

Well, I was going through some of my notes and stumbled upon an 80's or 90's classic Ninjutsu approach on the Bujinkan. The technique is called "kuhi" and is, to my understanding part of the nobori kata. It's more acrobatic than anything else but it sure is helpful with cardio training and endurance. Does anyone happen to know the kanji?

Also for jun nagare, I'm quite sure "ju" 柔 is the same as in jutaijutsu or jujutsu or judo or junan taiso. Am I correct? If so, where does the "n" come from?

Last but not least: takakyoshi no kamae. This has been a personal quest for some time now. I found out some things in judo forums and such, "taka" is 高 "tall" and 膝 "shi" is for knee but what about "kyo"? After all I know it's high knee posture but haven't found a reasonable meaning to "kyo". Thank you all.

BTW,
I'm quite curious about kanji and such to get to know the technique. It's a mnemotechnic approach :P

Hi,

I'm currently training alone since my teacher is in Mexico and can't visit him that often. I stumbled upon "Ihen no Kamae" and a huge question mark hovered over my head. I remembered training this back in 2001 as a noob (not that I have changed a lot since then) but it was shown to me like this:

Legas as in Ichimonji and both arms straight forward, boshi ken (right) and the other hand covered it while it moved to the (right) hip. It was done the same with the left.

I do know that Ihen is motion or movement but that just confuses me more because ALL kamae should have some kind of motion or movement because they are alive. I went to a bo seminar and it was shown that Ihen-Bojutsu is to move constantly, change from chudan to seigan to ichimonji to jodan but being in control at all times. So that raises my question, What is the basic Ihen no Kamae?

Thanks!

BTW where can I find a romaji reading. In other words it would be like this:

私はディエゴです。Watashi wa Diego desu. (I'm Diego).

Thank you.

I recently opened a dojo for the very same reasons and some things I can share are: (take into account that I write to you from a developing country where the average monthly income is $US186)

1) If people show interest, show that you are interested in them joining in but always make sure to ask "why?". Trust me, you don't want to end up in a dojo filled with Naruto fans expecting to clone themsleves or learn how to fly.

2) Having some written clearence from students is always good. Make sure you are not crucifying yourself in the end.

3) Search "your market". Indeed people with academic titles and a steady job tend make an extra effort showing to classes and value the teachings because they know what hard work is. People who are offered the chance to pay less or have some sort of scholarships, usually star showing up late and finally end up not showing in a month or two. They also could care less about true teachings about Budo.

4) 1 out of 10 are going to be as committed as you are to training. The rest? They will show up and train but only "repeat" what everyone else is doing.

Train and be true to yourself. If nobody shows up, train on your own.

Soke Hatsumi, Ohashi, Shiraishi, Noguchi and Oguri Shihan are doing ok for what I've read on Facebook.

Good to hear from you Shawn. Please all the information would be good to post it here.
