Bojutsu at Boston Martial Arts Center Hanbo or Sansakubojutsu

Martial arts have many uses.  I feel that one should take the time to understand the context in which their martial arts were used. This will open a whole range of skills and understanding about what is needed to learn their martial arts in the correct manner. For example: sanshakubojutsu (3 foot stick skills or walking stick fighting arts) was not the first thing one would use for fighting during the Sengoku – Warring States – period of feudal Japan.  But today, it’s is a good skill to have for self-defense in Boston because of the times we live in.  So take your time and study the historical use of your martial art.  Do your homework

I was working on kenjutsu last week and was moving with my training partner changing kamae (position based on what my spirit is sensing in relation to a changing environment). This requires the mind and body to stay sharp, because if your mind floats for one moment you could be in over your head. A good starting place on how not to get in over your head is “Stay in the moment, not before or after.”
