In recent articles in the new Bujinkan Magazine (www.BujinMag.com), Benjamin Cole has proposed that Budo Taijutsu has evolved from a “Kuzushi-based” art to a “Kukan-based” art. According to Ben, the fighting environment holds three things: people/objects, “empty space,” and the Kukan, the latter of which manifests as balls of various sizes and locations. Kukan-based Taijutsu presumes that it is the creation, manipulation and destruction of these balls that affect the opponent.

“The goal of Taijutsu is not to control the opponent. The goal of Taijutsu is to control the Kukan. Controlling the opponent is a consequence, an outcome, of controlling the Kukan.”

This seminar has been constructed to help students learn the basic tools for making the transition from Kuzushi-based training to Kukan-based training.

Umm, I counted four.

Just jerkin' yer chain.

Seriously, I think it's great that Ben is getting out here to demonstrate what he's been talking about, and it should be worth anyone's while to attend who can make it.

Just wanted to remind everyone about this weekend's seminar with Ben. I'm about to meet him in manhattan and am super excited about it. I hope I see many of my area friends join us.

By the way, Those who do come can travel lightly. Ben has asked that we just bring a full dogi and both a wooden tanto and a hanbo or jo. That's all you'll need for the class.

We'll also enjoy a meal together Saturday night where Ben will have a chance to talk to us some more. ...

Thanks everyone. See you there.
