The Title’s A Lie

Since I first met Hatsumi-sensei in 1982, I have occasionally been thinking about writing smatterings of thoughts about training. I never felt marginally competent to write down some of these feelings. And I am not sure that I still do.

However, since I have reached the point where my bu-go, Akahige, is now largely a fond memory, or largely false advertising, maybe it’s time.

This blog is for me to write my thoughts. If you read them, fine. If they stimulate some ideas, better. If by a small miracle they help you take less time to reach an understanding of some small part of out art, fantastic.

I am not going to debate here. I may even delete comments from time to time, if people make any. So take this all for what it’s worth…. about 2 cents.
