Martial Artist or Hobbyist

Buyu – Dear friends, It’s been not to long since my last entry. I will try to come back more often. Back in 2004 I started a blog that was up for a number of years. It’s since been taken offline. One may find it somewhere, as with most material on the net. Being it was generally martial arts related, and quite good. I’ve decided to put most of the content in a book format. It’s available. What does hobbyist, or hobby mean: An activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure. Normally when I come back to New York, I organize a training weekend. This past weekend was no exception. I’ve been hanging in gotham for 3 months now.

Traditional Martial Artist

Dear friends, It’s been a long while since my last post. I apologize for my long absence. Training has been pretty crazy here in New York. I don’t know if its just me, or something is continuously changing with regards to martial arts. There are few martial artist told than one would imagine. On behalf of my last sentence, i’ve realized that there is martial artist, and than there’s hobbyist. How the two are not the same? A martial artist is someone who is committed to studying, and teaching (if the’re teachers), regardless of family, job or any other responsibilities. In fact, its part of the martial pursuit. Those who cry or make excuses, alibis for not training, attending seminars

BEGINNERS 6 WEEKS BASIC COURSE – BUDAPEST 2015

Our 6 weeks basic beginners course is completed. Congratulations to everyone. Including my students who selflessly assisted, and helped our graduates to a better understanding of Budo Taijutsu. Job well done! When I started the 6 weeks course, I had no idea, what it was going to be like at the completion of our amazing course. In fact, the course was full of energy, fun and great participation from all (including my regular students – who attended). I learned some really profound insights about instructing, and general movement. This course helped me to explore further about my interpretation and understanding of budo taijutsu. I’m not interested in reinventing the wheel, nor confining myself to the (so-call) wheel. The course material

BEGINNERS COURSE – BUDAPEST 2015

Koteki Dojo Hungary – 6 Week Beginners Course Update. 5 weeks down. One to go before graduation. Everyone has done exceptionally well. First and foremost, I would like to acknowledge and thank my two assistants for their unyielding support – Róbert Marznicza, and Csaba Henk whom without I can’t imagine how difficult my task and goal would have been. Our beginners course is more then about martial arts, and Budo Taijutsu. The course priority is individual, yet unified. My focus was also individual in the sense, I wanted to explore outside of the norm and instruct primarily movement. How was our to accomplish this goal? I used a dry erase board that proved to be ultimately useful. Intentionally, I omitted

Kinesthetics Of Movement – Budapest 2015

It is translated that students with kinesthetic movement are discovery learners. Realization of doing then relying on technique alone. “What I want you to do is just take it as it is. Don’t think too much. If you get involved with thinking about it, the whole thing gets lost or loses its purity. Don’t think during practice – DO! The more you think, the further from the truth of budo you get: Budo is NOT an academic subject!” Masaaki Hatsumi –   Traditional & Modern martial arts present are not easy. Takes many years of serious practice to develop the sensitivity to move beyond technique. Hatsumi sensei has been saying the same thing for a long time. Unfortunately, there are

Bujinkan Ninjutsu Beginners Course – Budapest 2015

Dear Members, Friends and Visitors, I’m happy to update, and update our readers the first basic beginners course in Budapest, Hungary 2015. The course is schedule for 6 classes, and possibly will hold an additional class (last one), entirely on the topic of self defense. Though our mission at Koteki Dojo Hungary, primarily is not about the fighting system of budo taijutsu. More so how to access the principles of health and movement, thus live in harmony with oneself and others. Martial arts could be interpreted as a system/s for fighting. In general, yes. Over the years, I have taken a different approach. A holistic one with regards to movement and health. In todays society, its not important to build machines (per

NINJUTSU TRAINING – BUDAPEST 2015

During my recent visit to London to give a Ninjutsu seminar there, one of the students remarked that my techniques are always new and original. I replied that he was right, for I will not be teaching again what I taught in London. My techniques alway arise from the moment, are always different and fresh. This freshness is energy, life force. This is one of the most important things to understand in martial arts. So I always stay away from old techniques. And, as a device to prevent students from getting any fixed idea of how a particular technique should be, I avoid giving them time to memorize any technique. In this way, I’m trying to instill in them the

CLOSE QUARTER FIGHTING – NYC

NEW YORK CITY SEMINAR  APRIL 10th – 12th 2015. Close Quarter Fighting – hand-to-hand fighting at close quarters (CQF.) Traditionally, close-quarters combat was a military or law-enforcement term used to describe armed or unarmed hand-to-hand combat.

Koteki Ryuda – Keiko Budapest

Koteki Ryuda – Juppo Sessho Keiko Budapest Training (Wednesday Feb 18th),  was a helluva evening. Can’t tell you how good it is to see our members evolve. When I first moved to Budapest, and agreed to open a school. I was cynical. Then a few people I met were sincerely kind, generous, and helpful. Though the mindset from what I have experience with some former members, have prove one thing. The way society is in Hungary, coming from a communist era. Most people who’ve lived through that difficult period. Has passed on to their children, many of the traits of fear, economic insecurity, and political hitchhikers. The system has failed to empower its people to be all they can be.
