When studying martial arts, it is very important to study distance. When we are doing are drills and randori (free movement), focus on how distance can change based on intent and whether the fight is armed or unarmed. Also know how this judgment works in life

One of the great things about martial arts training is how we can explore who we are as people on the inside. When training, the ability to make a decision under pressure requires strong focus in the moment. Live in the moment. Plan for the future. Learn from the past.

One of the great things about Ninpo Taijutsu (Body skill training for Self Defense) is the freedom of movement and natural energy flow that are with in basics of training. Using the skills from breathing and natural expansion of the body found Ninpo Taijutsu, this will direct the body’s natural energy flow into an extraordinarily strong health promotion and self-defense method.

Self defense is the process by which we avoid danger. This is done by
using a combination of our intellect and our physical bodies.

Martial arts and personal goals

Boston Martial Arts Center (Randori Training)

Boston Martial Arts Center (Randori Training)

It is very important when studying martial arts to have personal goals. The goals can be the same as, different from, or related to each other. As we grow in age and experience, our goals can change.

Each martial art has its own set of basics. Sometimes the basics from different systems look the same, other times they look and are different. This can change based on when and where the martial art was created and who created it.

People ask me what are the goals of the training at our dojo, Boston Martial Arts Center. The goals of our dojo are varied. One is to find inner peace through the hardship of mindful martial arts training. We carefully guide the student to the path of self-discovery.

This path can be full of difficulties that can be overcome through our Ninpo Taijutsu (the self-defense method that we train in at Boston Martial Arts Center.) We train with our focus on understanding the basics within our own movement, awareness of our reactions and interactions with a sympathetic training partner, and with an eye to our personal achievement. This type of training can increase personal effectiveness, happiness, and self-confidence.

Martial arts training has showed me a path of living a full life that comes from the trials of hard work and mindful, direct experience.

New Years Post from Boston Martial Arts Center

New Years Post Boston Martial Arts Center

New Years Post Boston Martial Arts Center

This past year (2014) has been a great year for deep learning about life and martial arts. The best lessons have not always conveniently fit with my way of looking at the world. They represent deep fears, biases, etc., about myself that I may not want to face. These things can manifest in the form of stubbornness and pushing away something, not acting on a problem, or fighting against our own best interest. They limit our success and our view of the world. If we can take time, be honest with ourselves, and face these things, we can find a whole new view of our life. Through the hardship of mindful martial arts training we can clear the path for finding inner peace. My teachers, Mr. and Mrs. Hayes, and their teacher, Dr. Hatsumi, have had a profound impact on my life. I would like to thank them for their generous teaching. Also I would like to thank the members of New England Ninpo Society and the Boston Martial Arts Center. And, always, deep gratitude to my family. I’m looking forward to 2015 and more lessons. I wish you all great lessons and success in 2015 and thank you for supporting and reading these tiny notes from my life.”

Thank you

Mark Davis

Empty your Cup and Martial Arts, Life, Self defense

Boston Martial Arts Center

Boston Martial Arts Center
Empty Your Cup

A Cup of Tea

Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen. Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring. The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. “It is overfull. No more will go in!” “Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?” 

 — “Zen Flesh, Zen Bones” Paul Reps

 This old story has many parts to it that relate to our lives. One of the many important points I learned from it is to empty your cup of expectations, live in the moment. Our inner awareness about what our mind is doing is very important within the context of our lives and martial art training, self-defense. At the start of each class at the Boston Martial Arts Center we start with a short inner exercise that brings the students and instructor into a moment of focus (Kime) and clears the mind. 

 It is very important to learn to seize the moment and to be clear and open in the now. The students at the Boston Martial Arts Center have found that this moment of focus allows them to clear away any daily noise that can cloud and distract them.

 It is very important to develop this skill to be able handle situations as they develop and to help the universe flow better. This training is helpful for all ages, and we include it in both the adults’ and children’s classes.

Ninjutsu (martial art of enduring spirit) we seek not to hurt or harm

Boston Martial Arts Center Ninjutsu

Boston Martial Arts Center
Ninjutsu

In ninjutsu (martial art of enduring spirit) we seek not to hurt or harm. We seek only balance and a return to a natural order. I feel it is very important as ninjutsu students that we learn to shift our paradigm about martial arts. This martial art is not about winning or losing; it is not about ego, or not being soft or weak. It is about ending violence and bringing a balance and order to life. Without balance and order, the universe cannot flow. This paradigm shift is very important for personal growth in your martial art.

The First Part Awareness in Self Defense

Boston Martial Arts Center

Boston Martial Arts Center

The first part of awareness in self defense is stopping for a moment and seeing what is going on around yourself and within yourself. Do not just pass through your environment. Take your time and take in the environment you live in. Try to understand the flow nature. When something unnatural happens, you will see this abnormality. If you have trained correctly (using natural the movement training of Ninpo Taijutsu and mind training for elimination of unnatural tendencies) you can use your natural body skills to escape an unnatural event.
