The emergence of the question it is the first step on the path of knowledge.
a true teacher encourage his students to ask questions and guide them toward in finding the answers.
into a theory very much simplified, the pedagogy can be divided into two categories.
the first one is that in which the student try to imitate the teacher until he becomes most often a kind of younger copy of the master.
in the Martial Arts field that can be associated with Koryu where the transmission is not limited only to techniques but also include a set of ethical and moral values.
the second one is based on transmission of a set of techniques strongly linked to a curriculum and a time interval.
this case, somehow correlated with a sports side, the information are summarizing much better, the results appear much earlier but these is no longer a whole life experience.
this method can be specify to Gendai Budō established after the Japanese Meiji Restoration.
based on my own experience, I noticed that generally most practitioners of Gendai Budō are trying to keep some traditional aspects like etiquette, ceremonial phrases or specific gestures which can occur at certain moments of the training.
it is not important what type of doctrine you choose, as long is not lost the essence for which everyone practice, namely, to become a better person in the society in which are living.
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.
