Seishan and continuous movment

Seishan A while back Takagi Sensei said to me ‘In the first half of Seishan there is never an end in any movement – the movement is always continuous’. My initial reaction back then was ‘what is he talking about?’ ‘Of course we pause. Each sequence has a definite beginning and a definite end’. ‘We s...

Re: Fudoshin Fudomyoo Fudodachi Fudosan

Hi Reg, I can't speak for Dan but I do know that he teaches yoga people how to use their 'yoga' to fight. :) Meaning that he demonstrates the martial intent of many of their yoga exercises and I know he is seriously studying it at the moment. And of course by saying Acala Vidya you are stating indir...

Re: Fudoshin Fudomyoo Fudodachi Fudosan

Hi Reg, I wasn't there but apparently some of my Wado friends in Sweden attended Dan's seminar last year and they showed Dan their stuff... I don't know what they showed but what I do know is that any person trained in the internal stuff can look at Wado and easily determine what we are 'suppose to ...

Re: Fudoshin Fudomyoo Fudodachi Fudosan

I want to add one thing. I started to read and follow all the links within the link. At times I wanted to run from the room screaming because it was like watching a bunch of 12 year olds in a food fight. Some will say that its not worth the effort. I say it is. If you can manage to wade thru all the...

Fudoshin Fudomyoo Fudodachi Fudosan

Silly dumb joke on my behalf. Fudoshin means immovable mind. Fudo myoo means immovable esoteric teaching Fudo dachi is immovable stance. Fudosan mean real estate agency :) Anyway since Suzuki Sensei talked about Fudoshin from time to time and since Fudo myoo is the Japanese martial arts God so to sp...

Arakawa Sensei

I'm not good at these things and I am sure many others will write much more polished and eloquent statements but Arakawa Sensei passed away yesterday. He had cancer. I had a feeling the last time I saw him in Japan in February that was going to be it. He was barely able to walk but for whatever reas...

Re: Analyze this... Intent

Re: Analyze this... Intent

Speaking of intent, I am cutting and pasting a post I made on my private site. I did not write the article. I wish I had because it is good. Intent is a prerequisite for internal power. Without intent you have nothing. Nothing. A lot of people misunderstand intent. They think of 'intention'. It is n...
