The truth of Kenjutsu

In order to have a generally valid truth in the area of Kenjutsu there must be a single system widely accepted to which you can relate.

as there is not available a such universal method, it can be only discussions about the subjectivity of different styles, teaching ways, context where the evaluation structure is always directly inter-connected to the system to which reference is made.

more specifically, only and exclusively inside of a specific martial style you can have specific waza: body posture, sword position, sliding, cut, parry, etc
by relating yourself to that distinct school, you can perform a technique more or less correctly, considering a clear set of parameters.


but, once you overcome the stylistic barrier, what a school recommends may be completely different or even incorrect according to other traditions, even if in many cases them are somehow related or with common backgrounds.

perhaps here becomes in the clearest way the notion of martial branch or Ha.

so, how can you say with 100% certainty what is right and what is wrong from a fundamental perspective, as long as there is no such a thing ?

the only one generally valid truth, common to all styles and all Martial Arts, is that the practitioner must follow a path which that he is identified in that moment of his life and which fold into a larger proportion to his physically and psychologically pattern.

when you really get to understand these issues, there are no postures, forms and techniques.

from this point of view, is not enough to dream, but to be able to turn your dream into reality.

the readers of this martial art blog should understand that all the technical advices that I have wrote here do not replace the dojo training.
their purpose is meant to highlights the substance of each technique like something that should be considered as a summary.
