I have a simple question, can anyone give me a percise definition of Happobiken as it relates to the different schools? Does it just relate to techniques of the sword?

I used the Search function and came up with >> this thread <<. Does that help any? (At least with reference to Kukishinden Ryu...)

Hi Shawn,
To be absouletley honest if anything I'm more confused, but thank you for trying to help. As I research the Happobiken from various schools I can only find limited information about it, and then it realy just say's that it's sword techniques! But so many senior Judan's make reference to it in regards to Taijutsu, I just want to know if I'm missing something or do I need to look somewhere else for the information.

Thanks again and all opinions are welcome,

Marcus

happobiken is usually understood as 8 ways of the secret sword,but really is 8 ways plus the secrtet sword. the secret sword is you and your taijutsu. hope this helps a little. i could be completly wrong.

Why do you say that the secret sword is you and your taijutsu?

I'm not able to tell you with certainity either Marcus, but consider this that you already know:
Taijutsu is the basis for all weapon usage.
Without effective Taijutsu you can't use any weapon well.
The Japanese language is not designed to be "specific".
You must understand the "context" to understand the "words".

Just some things to ponder.

There are layers and layers to everything that is in the Densho of the many schools. "Secret Sword" is also made reference to in the Chineese arts and in western magic, and it is the name given to the hand position used for making the kuji cuts (i.e. the hand closed with the midle and forefinger extended). This goes into an aspect of the art that Sensei often aludes to, everyone seems to run away from, and no one seems to know anything about. So the best one can do is to try to read between the lines of Sensei´s words and use them as a springboard to find understanding. In time all this will come to you, but with what I said above, if you are diligent, you might come to it sooner than you think.
