Re: Wadoworld Article: Ohtsuka's Lazy-zazen

As long as you don't import that kihon kumite nonsense. (referring to the kihon kumite article that was on Wado world....don't want to be taken out of context)

Re: Othsuka sensei quote

Here you go. Bu no michi wa tada aragoto to na omoiso wa no michi kiwame wa wo motomu michi Don't assume that the way of Bu (martial) is just about fighting. It's about pursuing peace, it's about hoping for (desiring) peace. I will leave it to the others to expand/expound on it.... Mine is more like...

Re: Bushinkai Wado-ryu?

Hi Sergio. All I meant was that we need to compare apples to apples and not apples to oranges. Nakamura was doing some aiki jujitsu thing and not karate. His aiki jujitsu is not a part of Bushinkai in Japan to the best of my knowledge. We need to compare his Wado to other people's Wado. And in that ...

Re: Bushinkai Wado-ryu?

Hi Sergie, Bushinkai is a real Wado organization. And Sakura Sensei was a contemporary of Suzuki Sensei and they were good friends. You can't judge a whole organization by one man. What you see on the video is not Wado but Manaka-ryu which is an aiki jujitsu that Nakamura does outside of Wado. So if...

Re: Information

What is freaky and fascinating is that Tyrone has morphed into Shiomitsu Sensei. I remember the first time I saw Butch Balingit he was a clone of Suzuki Sensei. Both guys are exceptional in their own right and they both move like their instructor. You can't go wrong being clones of either Shiomitsu ...

Re: Body Mechanics

Hi Reg, I am going to steal your phrase '‘motion being the delivery of intent’ for my seminars. It sounds way cooler than my 'do your stuff during the transition'. :) I hope people understand what Reg is saying. This is why in Wado we CAN punch with our body and block with our body. We don't punch w...

Re: Body Mechanics

There is a lot more of Wado suchness displayed here by Rika Usami than in most Wado videos I see... Another student of Inoue Sensei. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ws6pvyXpWH8 So what is interesting for me is that (I spent several years cross training in shitoryu) is that in Wado we do our stuff dur...

Re: Wado vs universal teaching and learning
