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

Kuhi = 空飛
Jun-nagare = 順流れ

Regarding Judo kyoshi no kamae. The correct kanji are 踞姿.

Note, AFAIK, that term is not used in Bujinkan Budo. We do have similar body positions, but they are not referred to by that term.

I advise caution searching other traditions/systems for information re Bujinkan terminology. There are many common terms, especially with gross motor movement, and techniques bearing similar names. However the physical expression is quite different.

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.
