I love this art!
Over the years I’ve looked to it for very different things. Early on for self-defense skills, then “magic” and a sense of wonder. Later, for health benefits, robust body skills, and life lessons. So far it has delivered on all accounts:)
Perhaps it has something for you too:)
If not, you should consider “JUJITSU LETHAL – Never Sleep Again!”™ That’s right. “JUJITSU LETHAL – Hold Your Breath and Stop Time!”™
Errm…oh yeah. I’m a licensed instructor of Hakkoryu Jujutsu. I’m #3132 here. As with anything, there are a number of different perspectives on Hakkoryu. For mine, you’ll have to come train…or meet me for a beer! Two mainstream perspectives are available at the links below:
The Hakkoryu So Hombu Dojo (English)
The official English website of Hakkoryu outside of Japan.
For a number of reasons. The two primary one’s being: 1. as a remembrance, and 2. a personal reminder to not be “まじめすぎる”!
I once had a mentor say, “Our work is serious business, but it doesn’t have to be somber”.
Do you have any Dojo rules or guidelines?
I’ve adopted the following from elsewhere, “No drugs and don’t break the furniture”.
Anything else can be addressed as needed.
How soon until I can kick ass and take names?
Uhh, maybe this isn’t the right art for you. Have you heard of “JUJITSU LETHAL – Better Than A Poke In The Eye With A Sharp Stick!”™
More coming next week…
