Training Ceremony.

- is Martial Arts Training Ceremony important?
- i think it is. paying attention to details, formal bows, corectness of exercises, courtesy is not only part of Martial Arts World Culture, but also a sign of Respect to others. better chance of training better if participants care.

Discretion.

i think i should not write about knife methods that i am learning, carelessly & freely, without training them first properly & understanding consequences - even a little.

Religions & Martial Arts.

Dialogue between Religions in Martial Arts Context?

i think it's about visiting various school, practicing style & sharing it (training together) with other Martial Arts adepts - of other Religions as well.

Preparations for Training.

i think it's better to prepare for training by quietening Mind, stretching, warmup & preparing equipment if neccessary.

Without quiet Mind, imperfect behaviors are 'programmed' into nervomuscular system, training is worse.

At this moment of life, i am using 4 hours for preparations before tantojutsu Training.

After first Knife Training Lesson.

It was far from glorious - even if i got great training partners,

i was out of shape, and knew no knife methods, but still did strike few times during fights with knife-resembling training weapons made of foam,

Teacher's voice was fascinating, hypnotizing, paralysing i think... as he told about cutting arteries and similar methods.

Too fast Transmission of methods, it would seem, but i don't mind... in fact appreciate... for i won't question Training Methods of Superiors.

Offering, a Poem.

Offering.

Mahakala of the Knife.
i offer You this meat.
i offer You this nectar of a Tea.
may i be able to Protect,
with the Knife,
as Skillfully as You do.

5-Year Martial Arts Dedication.

i think i should say it openly.

i am closing to the point in my life where i will resign from unneccessary distractions and focus on Martial Arts (with knife mostly) for 5 full years.

Enlightened Love is not unneccessary distraction.

Computer Sciences are distractions, but perhaps not unneccessary... will do them less, i hope.

This will start as soon as i have money from mortgage.

Up-down slice.

There's Martial Arts strike i've seen on film.

It looks almost like forward punch to those who can't see better.

To a more practiced eye for Martial Arts, it's clearly different.

Without weapon it can be seen as punch on different trajectory than standard Seiken-Tsuki Jodan.

With a Knife it can extend to a slice instead of a punch, hence the name i gave it, inspired by film & insight.

Related move with a knife would be 'Up-down chop' at the neck area.

Aikido Wrist Grab Defense.



Aikido Wrist Grab Defense.


i know beginning of this, learned during Aikido Lesson.

perhaps this can help to protect a Knife-hand from being 'neutralized', and Knife from being taken away.

perhaps this method can even put opponent to ground in preparation for the Knife strike.
