IMHO Sanshin *is* the Kosshi Kihon Sanpo because it's the "engine" that drives the movements in the Kosshi Kihon Sanpo (as well as the Toride Kihon Goho ).

But that's in my world....

Undergroundfighting drills !

It seems more workable than groundfighting drills

Thank you!

As always, your comments are to the point. They give it another dimension to the discussion.

And underground-fighting drills may be very useful in for example, London Underground

So you mean to tell me that someone has already taken the time to tell Hatsumi Sensei about this!!!??? Did he grab some popcorn and a soda?

I have never had the opportunity nor the honor to have a private conversation with Hatsumi Sensei, but I will tell you that if I ever did have a chance to have some tea and a converstation with, not only a master but a Soke, the last thing on my mind would be "tattle-tailing" on what someone is saying on a computer screen. It's a waste of time on both parties.

You have the Soke of 9 arts in front of you and all you have to say is "Hatsumi Sensei, do you know that so & so are being disrespectful". It's laughable!!!


I didn't say that someone already has told Hatsumi sensei and I don't know since I'm not in Japan right now, BUT it wouldn't surprise me at all if Soke was already aware of this debate.

There are a lot of people training with Soke every week that do have "private conversations" with him regularly. For them it's no big deal to take up this kind of matters with him, since he tends to take interest in what happens to long time students that are close to him. For someone visiting Japan now and then, then I agree that it would not be the proper thing to do. I for once would not do it. I'm not that close to him, but if I would have had any matters that maybe would need his attention, then I know who to talk to, and I can also rely on their judgement to pass it on to Soke if they thought it necessary.

And sometimes you marvel at what Hatsumi sensei actually do know about what's going on around in Bujinkan

I worked with unemployed youths in the mid 90's, and I quickly found out that there are four groups of people

have the ability and want to
don't have the ability but do want to
have the ability but don't want to
don't have the ability and don't want to

In my experience, the three first groups can all be handled, either by guidance or motivation. If they don't have the ability, you can guide them in other ways that will ultimately get them to the same goal. If they don't have the will, you can almost always find ways to motivate them.

The last group is the easiest, at least then it comes to training in martial arts, because we do it out of our own free will. We are not forced to go to the dojo, so as instructors we do hardly see that cathegory of people.

I wouldn't be surprised either Peter... it is pretty obvious that for some people this is how they try to raise their Bujinkan stock so to speak. Of course they will tell you it is because they are trying to look out for 'the Bujinkan's greater good' or some other rubbish, but it is blatantly obvious they are just using it as a way to get face time with Soke. Quite sad really...


And sometimes it's quite hard to avoid face time with Hatsumi sensei, even if you do try to avoid it...sometimes he has an ability to home in on you even when you do try to stay in the background....

But that's another discussion

Now we are going very much of topic....if there was a topic in this thread to start with...

Although we may practice a Japanese art we are not all living in Japan....nor are we in the dojo at the moment. And for a bunch of foreigners living in foreign lands, outside the dojo, to be held to Japanese social nuance seems strange to me.

But I suppose the case can be made that outsiders reading this thread may look badly on the organization, or something.


We may not all live in Japan, but as long as we wish to practice the art of Hatsumi sensei, we actually do have to pay attention to how he wishes us to behave and since Hatsumi sensei is from Japan, he will clearly judge it from a japanese point of view. Not from the way we see it in your country or in my country.

All our actions, on line or in real life can and will be used against us to determine our kind of character, and somehow things do happen to get to Hatsumi senseis attention, even if he is not surfing the net himself.
I can tell, because when I was in Japan in March this year, one of the shihans started to probe me with questions about an event in Sweden that not so many people knew about...but Hatsumi sensei had heard about it and did send in one of the shihans to find out more.

So disagreements are ok, but the way of wording them and putting them forward must be carefully judged. I fully agree with Duncan, but I don't think he has to take this to Hatsumi sensei himself. I'm quite sure that Hatsumi sensei has already been made aware of this heated discussion

Who knows which is right? Certainly not I!



Maybe you are both right...

As I have understood it, a kata consist of techinques, waza...agreed?

And from the kata we may be able to extract the principles behind the techniques.

But I'm not sure that by learning the waza perfectly, we can create the kata. In my point of view, the kata is bigger than the sum of the techniques - synergy effect, it may be called.

Because if the kata was just a combination of techniques, waza, it would actually not fill any purpose, because then we could concentrate on just perfecting waza and do our own combinations.

so, maybe it's a kind of rising helix, we learn basic waza to be able to learn a kata and extract principles from the kata that that in turn can be perfected and applied learning another kata and so on..

So in my world, both are necessary, perfecting waza by themselves, but also extracting principles from the kata, because someone going before us on the road have already applied waza in katas for us to learn something important from...

Just my .2 whatever currency you would like to use

And I'm certainly not right either...

I read it as training with the same dedication as a professional boxer, not to train boxing per se. But that's my take on it...sometimes it's good not to have english as the first language.
