Koryu Batto and Modern Iaido - Shudokan Martial Arts Association

by Takwann
by Hunter Armstrong Sensei This article first appeared in the Winter 1996 issue of the SMAA Newsletter. Hunter B. Armstrong Sensei is one of a small number of non-Japanese to have legitimately studied the koryu, or ancient Japanese martial arts, in detail. He lived in Japan for quite a few years practicing directly under the soke, or headmasters, of more than one koryu. (Armstrong Sensei personally believes that koryu bujutsu can be defined as "traditions of fighting arts originating no later than the early Tokugawa era, and whose functional aims were the development of combat effectiveness, discipline, and morality, in that order.") A close associate of the late Donn Draeger Sensei, one of the world's foremost budo/bujutsu authors and historians, Armstrong Sensei succeeded Mr. Draeger as the Director of the International Hoplology Society.


Shindo Muso Ryu Koryu Jodo – A Lateral View | [ ]

by Takwann
Personally I feel that the Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo (or Jojutsu) syllabus offers such a comprehensive, interesting and cohesive approach to Jodo technical training, it is a great shame to not explore it, research it and become proficient in the various “flavours” of Shindo Muso Ryu Jo.

The Student-Teacher Relationship, Seitei and “Traditional” Iai | [ ]

by Takwann
Like many, my first step into the world of iai and traditional Japanese sword arts was through the Zen Ken seitei-gata and for several years my experiences there strongly colored how I viewed iai, koryu arts and budo in general. Now anyone who has spent any amount of time on online forums or interacting with senior practitioners in various iai and sword related arts, both in Japan and abroad, will know that the seitei-gata “system” (for lack of a better word) can be and is controversial in some circles.


Structure des entraînements aux arts martiaux de Kashima-Shinryû

by Takwann
Comme expliqué dans la section histoire, Kashima-Shinryû prit d'abord forme lorsque MATSUMOTO Bizen-no-kami Ki no Masamoto développa Ichi-no-tachi. Cette technique représente l'expression physique ultime d'une approche de l'art du sabre basée sur l'application équilibrée des 5 lois liées (goko-no-hojo) connue en tant que : mouvement et immobilité font un (dosei ittai), création et manifestation font un (kihatsu ittai), attaque et défense font un (kobo ittai), vide et réalite font un (kyojitsu ittai), et Yin et Yang font un (in'yo ittai).

An introduction to Iaido to the prospective student

by Takwann
NOTE: Japanese martial arts are very diverse, and so any generalising statement or rule will have exeptions, probably about 50% of the cases. None of the following should be taken as absolute truth.
