Tai-Sabaki no Budo / Budapest 2015

Tai-Sabaki no Budo / Budapest 2015

Greetings Dear Friends, and Visitors, Been meaning to come stop over here and post an update. However time was not permitting me to do what my intentions wanted to do. I’m not going to cry about it. It’s not spilt milk (HAHA). Suppose to be a joke. Healthier not to take shit literal. Spent the entire day yesterday figuring out a plug-in for Koteki Dojo website. I’m pretty technical inclined. However, much of the programs are overly complicated. Finally, I got some what accomplished what I wanted. Surely have to go back in at a later date. I have been sitting on a procrastination hump for a while. Started learning how to navigate around final cut pro – via Lynda

Yesterday & Todays Ninja

It’s not about joining a school to be a ninja. One is born one. A mystic of inner exploration. Presently today, those who study ninjutsu has fared away from the primeval of the ninja. Historically, ninjutsu was a profession inherited at birth. I read a long time ago. Which is another topic. From birth, infancy, the children of ninja families were conditioned to be constantly aware of the things around them. As the children grew up, they were gradually educated in the ways of self discovery.  Yesterday, I was mentioning how times has changed. As well as the psychology of  civilization. A lot of it has to do with technology. I remember growing up in the late 70s, up till the late 80s.

GROWING UP IN THE BUJINKAN

Growing up in the Bujinkan. I’ve been around for a couple of years. Literally, its been a lot of years. The Bujinkan is one of the best organizations in the world. Not to forget to mention the martial art system. Much has changed after the millennium(2000). The Bujinkan from what I understand is the biggest martial arts organization in the world. I don’t believe Masaaki Hatsumi (Present day Soke), imagine his organization would take off as it did in the world. What was once the image of secrecy, and ninjutsu. Today is known in just about every martial art style in the world. Perhaps it was never meant to be a martial art, as it is known today. It may have meant more

TECHNICAL & PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAINING

Wednesday past class subject – 8th Kyu grade material. NAGE WAZA (Throwing forms) as per level. -Ganseki nage (rock throw) -Ganseki-otoshi (rock drop) -Ganseki-oshi (rock press) -Ganseki-ori (rock break) We looked past the above from a chronological breakdown. The focus was on ganseki nage, and the  infinite possibilities. It’s important to download the movement into your body. By way of doing it from a static know how (slowly – Lassan) to semi dynamic know how. This lead to the body learning. First there is muscle memory, then there’s the body know how. By way of teaching the body to do what is natural. Don’t get it twisted (wrong). Learning the above – from the kihon point of view is an absolute. There

SANSHIN OF FUDO MYO-O WORKSHOP

Greetings, Yesterday training was on point. Though the group was small. Much more useful information was expounded upon. Usually when the class is big, and a few people have questions, time flies. The day prior before the workshop. I spent most of my time, looking over notes, and outlines of what to cover. However it turned out differently. Some of the significant topics were discovered through the training.   Fudo Myo-o – known as Acala in Sanskrit means – immovable one. The knowledge of fudo- myoo is broad, and intense. As in the Bujinkan. An umbrella of nine historical martial art schools. Fudo Myo-o, as I conveyed, the umbrella of Zanshin, Mushin, and Fudoshin. Through these principles, we embodied the

Ninpo Taijutsu Free Work Budapest

Its been a great 2015 start. Everyone has been in top form.. Though, there’s much more to go. We’re approaching Ninpo Taijutsu this year from two aspects. Technical  & Psychological aspects. Our new methodical program thoroughly gives the needed tools to beginners, and more experienced members. These two aspects are the essential diagnostic, and healing paradigms. Ninpo Taijutsu Free work is good for developing distance, timing and confidence. Here is a clip from the other night. We studied muso dori, and ganseki nage. Tomorrow is our Sanshin of Fudo Myo-o workshop in Budapest. Hope the title doesn’t sound cliche. There’s more to the title then meets the naked eye. I have been growing into this state of awareness. Most of the

WESTERNIZED NINJUTSU

Dear Readers, Westernized Ninjutsu in modern times. As I look around, more and more people, groups, and institutions are perpetuating the image of clandestine warriors. Often mistaken as ninjutsu. Then there’s the martial art schools. Many instructors exaggerate, and capitalize off ninjutsu. “This has led to the ubiquitous appearance of would be ninjas who, with little knowledge of ninjutsu, have tried to make easy money. So easily could they make money with their superficial knowledge and experience that they seemed intoxicated by their success”. Hatsumi Masaaki – Essence of Ninjutsu. Does martial arts has to be aggressive? Absolutely not. I believe it’s not martial arts that’s aggressive. It’s the individual that practice martial arts. I guess if your in competition, then you

Jumping Off in 2015 – Ninpo Taijutsu

Dear Members, and Friends Happy New Year (boldog új évet – Hungarian). So far, so good. Is all I can say. Last year was a really hectic and time consuming year. Filled with lots of good memories, and unpleasant experiences. The beginning of 2014 seemed promising. In fact it was. We made lots of changes throughout the year, that reflects where Koteki Dojo presently focuses. There were a number of members who left the training for different reasons, I assume. I’m considering in the future to write a blog on the path to being a student. All our ex students, made incredible starts, and investments. Unfortunately, they could not continue on their martial paths with us. Everyone is entitle to

Pillars of Budo & Ninpo Taijutsu

Dear Members and Friends, It’s incredibly good to be back in New York visiting. Last evening was no exception. We held our first of what may turn out to be a series of trainings in Gotham. Initially we were going to review some kihon from the Ten Chi Jin. However it was necessary. Personally, I felt it was a case of time, and number of people that determined the direction to go. We mainly focused on breathing, posture, and continuous movement. Some of the more important details lies on the fact of self awareness. Too many times the focus  is on external situations, that restricts our very intent. In order to surpass this continuous cycle, is to study human behavior,

Nichi Geki – Shinden Fudo Ryu Variation 2014

Dear Members and Friends, It’s been a week since being back in Budapest from Sarajevo. I can’t speak for other instructors. When I either teach a seminar, or simply participate, it takes a couple of days, or maybe weeks for my internal system to process what I’ve downloaded. Last week’s seminar in Sarajevo is no different. There is a familiar energy among the students, and instructor (Darko Tarjkovic) in Sarajevo. Kata and myself were warmly welcome. Everyone was so kind. Including the two parents that approached me with sincere appreciation for what I (prior) was not aware, how touched their children were with my presentation on Saturday. That meant the world to me. In life you never know who’ll your
