@111111POINTS TO REMEMBER:
BE RELAXED!!! BALANCE-FLOW-DISTANCE-DIRECTION-TIMING-INTENT
SANSHIN NO KATA (SUNSHINE NO KATA)
Do these slowly and smoothly, focus on breathing, movement, and Chi flow. Keep
an open heart and let your mind go empty. Just feel the technique flow. Do not
force it, let it happen. Feel the sun on your face and enjoy the way it feels to
awaken fresh from a nights rest. Feel your sweat roll across your body and then
feel it drying and cooling you. Imagine you hear children at play. Focus on the
sounds around you by not focusing on anything. Let yourself enjoy the movement.
*from here, the rest is shamelessly taken from Bujinkan websites. The importance
is that the techniques are accurate. Study well and deeply.
Chi No Kata: You are standing in a ichimonji type position, thus: feet in a " L
" shape, heels in line with each other, one set of toes pointing straight ahead,
the other set pointing away from your side. Feet should be shoulder-width apart
or a little more. Knees bent, knees in line over the foot. Most of your weight
is distributed over the back leg, front leg is light and ready to move. Weight
distribution is either 70-30 or 60-40. If the right leg is the lead leg pointing
straight, then the right arm is the lead arm also pointing in the same
direction. Same for left side: left leg, left arm. Lead arm is pointing in same
direction as lead leg, hand pointing at eye level of another person. Hand is
held loosely together, thumb cocked down a little to avoid being broken by an
opponent. The hand is held with the palm pointing in the same direction as the
rear leg. The arm is kept slightly bent, not rigidly straight, also to teach not
easily having your arm broken. The rear arm makes a curled fist ( fudo-ken ) ,
and rests on the rear hip, the rear arm covering the rib cage. Your gaze is
straight ahead, following the tips of the fingers of the lead hand. Your gaze is
relaxed, not rigid. Your back is straight. Your shoulders are back. You are also
being taught to remove rear body targets as far away from an opponent as
possible. Your body is completely in line. From here on in, the preceding
instruction will be referred to as " kamae ". All Sanshin no kata movements
proceed from this kamae. Chi No Kata begins in kamae. As you move in any
movement in Sanshin no kata, do not allow your body to lift up out of your
crouched position from weakness of the knees or laziness. Keep level throughout
the movement. Lean forward, let rear hand drop a little behind the your body or
buttocks area. now step forward with the rear leg and set it as the lead leg and
simply point the toes of your former lead leg to the side to make that your rear
leg. You, in effect, change the lead to the rear as you change the rear to the
lead. Your rear arm becomes the lead arm as your lead arm takes up the former
position of the rear. Your new lead arm becomes a strike to an opponents
diaphragm. The hand forms a variation of the kiten-ken, or shuto strike, by
clenching the index finger to touch the finger next to the pinkie ( the second
metacarpal to the fourth ), the thumb pushing the index finger to it. The pinkie
is touching the fourth metacarpal. Your hand resembles a scoop. You use this
scoop inside and under the diaphragm. (Under the chest area. ) Your arm is once
again lightly bent, not rigid, hereafter referred to as a "natural position".
You are leaning forward with the strike, as though you were committed to it,
your body should resemble a spear, with the point being the tips of your fingers
and the end being your rear leg. Your heels are in line, as before. Weight is
around 70-30 with the lead leg carrying the weight. Repeat the exercise by

reversing the body again, the rear arm becoming the striking arm, etc. Do the
exercise ten times, five on each side. After each strike, assume the kamae
position before switching sides. Make sure you keep your knee joints over your
feet, and do not allow your knees to bend inward or outward. Always keep your
spine straight. You may have limited space, so all of the Sanshin no kata
movements can be performed as either an advancing motion or by staying in one
place. To stay in one place, bring the lead leg to the rear, the toes pointing
in the opposite direction as the rear leg, heels almost touching, then advance
the rear leg to become the lead. You should be staying in one place if you are
doing it correctly. This is the most commonly used form in the dojo, because of
limited space. Outside of the dojo you can cross ground. Your legs begin like
this: "L" and end up a reverse of that, and then switch again, etc. Do the
movements correctly, do not become lazy in it, as you will develop bad habits.
There is a saying, "God loves an upright man." Keep your spine straight, as this
is one way to remain upright. Your teacher loves it when you are upright as
well. This allows your chi to flow properly. With the strike, exhale. When you
are switching, inhale. Keep your stomach tucked in. Remember the spear. You are
like the earth, holding your ground, confident of your victory.
Sui No Kata: The movement in Chi No Kata is a straight line. Straight back then
straight in. The movements in the rest of Sanshin no kata are based on the 45
degree angle, or "The Triangle Principle", L. The lead hand "drops", as though
becoming limp. The hand reverses its' original position of the beginning of
kamae by allowing the palm to point in the opposite direction the rear toes are
pointing. The arm makes a large circle clockwise if using the right arm and
counter-clockwise if using the left arm. The arm itself does not bend at the
elbow. The back of the hand falls behind the body and the circle begins. The
hand turns into a fudo-ken and rights itself back to its starting position(palm
facing the direction of the rear toes) when it approaches the point where the
hand was originally . So that the end of the arm movement looks the same as when
you started except now your hand is in a fudo-ken. The leg movement is thus: you
are standing in an imaginary triangle with your lead leg at the point of the
triangle. Your rear heel is at the center of the bottom line of a triangle, as
in kamae, your heels are in line. If your lead leg is your right leg, then your
rear toes would be pointing in the direction of your left side. You will step to
the left corner of the bottom of the triangle and put your heel at that
junction. Your lead leg will slide a few inches and fall onto the left line of
the triangle, or the same line that your rear heel is touching. The distance
between your two heels will not change from your beginning kamae distance.
(Since the lead leg slides a little it is sometimes necessary to move the rear
leg across and down the triangle a bit.) Now, as the arm movement happens, so
does the stepping movement, simultaneously. (The dropping of the hand usually
occurs a split second before any other movement, but before the circle begins,
you should be moving.) Now, the lead leg comes back, as in Chi No Kata, and the
feet go heel to heel. The lead arm drops down to form a fist on the same side
hip at the same time you go heel to heel. Your rear hand comes up next to your
temple, your crook in your thumb points at your temple. Your hand is in a fudoken. You step forward with what began as your rear leg and make it your lead,
setting it at the point of the triangle. Your arm swings into a kiten-ken, or
shuto strike, to the neck of an opponent. The movement begins in the elbow, not
the shoulder. The fudo-ken does not open into the shuto until the split second
before the point of imaginary contact. You should be hitting the imaginary neck
with the fleshy portion of your palm, directly below the pinkie and to the
outside of it. The step forward and the strike are done simultaneously. Again,
avoid harsh, jerking motions. Be fluid, like water. Do not rise up or down, stay
level throughout the motion. Relax your body, do not tense up or try to use
muscle strength. Deliver the shuto with the force of your body, not muscle

alone. Slap your shoulders to remind yourself to relax. The other side is the
same only, of course, your arm would be travelling in a counter-clockwise
position in the beginning. So, it is thus: An imaginary opponent strikes at you
with a fist. You step to a 45 degree angle while applying a damaging counter
strike to his arm ( at his elbow or wrist area), then you draw your leg back,
looking for anymore movement from your imaginary foe. When you see none, or you
see he has been knocked off balance by your initial strike, you step forward and
shuto strike the foe in the neck. You can apply the exercise with a real
opponent. You are like a wave that recedes, then comes crashing back in.
Ka No Kata: The same as Sui No Kata except for the mindset and the final strike.
Study Sui No Kata, then do thus: After you have dropped the hand, made the
circle, made the fist, stepped to a 45 degree angle, then brought your lead leg
back heel to heel with your other leg, draw your rear arm up in front of your
upper chest area, hand clenched in a fudo-ken, the crook of your thumb pointing
at the jugular vein in the right side of your neck (if you began with the right
leg forward).Your Hand is almost touching the opposite shoulder. You step
forward, you shuto strike to the neck with the same fleshy portion of the palm
as in Sui No Kata, only the palm will be parallel to the ground, whereas in Sui
No Kata your palm will be facing the sky. Complete the strike, fall back into
kamae, do the other side. Your mindset is that of fire, explosive energy,
nothing can stop you. You are breaking not just the opponents' neck, but his
spirit as well.
Fu No Kata: If you've learned the feet movement in Sui No Kata and Ka No Kata
well, then you will have no problem learning the feet movement in Fu or Ku No
Kata because they are identical. The hand movements and the attitude are the
only thing that changes. Begin in kamae. As you step to your 45 degree angle,
(assuming you have your right side and arm forward) then swing your arm
counterclockwise bringing it from in front of your body to the outside of your
lead leg. Imagine someone kicked at your right hip area and you are moving away
and striking at their leg with a "sand the floor" type of technique. Curl your
wrist at the end of the movement like you are pointing your pinkie at the sky.
This is like you are resting their imaginary leg in the crook of your wrist.
Bring the lead leg back as in the above techniques and put your lead arm on your
same side hip as in the above techniques. As you step forward you swing your arm
up in a uppercut type of motion, only let the arm extend naturally, don't bend
it unnecessarily. Extend a Shikan-ken (extended knuckle fist) into the imaginary
opponents midsection (or diaphragm area.) Fall back into kamae, do the other
side and repeat. The attitude you have mentally is you are being evasive,
elusive, difficult to grasp. The strike is difficult to see coming, you are like
the wind, appearing in your face when you never saw it coming.
Ku No Kata: The leg work in Ku No Kata is the same as Sui, Ka, and Fu. The
initial arm work is the same as in Fu. If you stand with your right side
forward, your arm swings down and across and outside your body in a
counterclockwise motion, wrist curling up. If you are standing with your left
side forward, your arm swings in a clockwise motion, as in Fu. Begin in kamae.
As you make your move, swing the arm. Bring your other arm up and flick your
wrist open at the level of the opponents' eyes or higher. As your imaginary
opponent is looking at your open hand bring your rear leg up into a foot stomp
kick at their midsection, all the while replacing your lead arm and hand on your
hip area in a fudo-ken. The idea and attitude behind it is that you are being
creative and you are not bound by conventional striking methods. You are
directing the opponents' vision up and at your hand, while you are secretly
stomping them in the chest.

Kihon Happo (Keep On Happy)


Omote-gyaku, Ura-gyaku, Oni-kudaki, Uchi-maki-dori, Jumonji-no-kamae, Hicho-nokamae, Ganseki-nage, and Ichimonji-no-kamae. The details here are brief, as you
should find a qualified instructor to teach you the correct movement.
OMOTE-GYAKU: You and Uke are facing each other. He grabs your lapel. You "cover"
his hand by lightly touching the palm of your hand over his fist. This keeps him
from breaking your collar bone if he were to shove into you. If he grabs you
with his right hand, you cover with your left,(mirror match), and then turn to
your right, placing your forearm against his outstretched arm. You do not step
with the turn, you simply pivot as though you were skiing. Your knees are bent
and held closely together, to keep him from kicking you in the groin. If he
kicks he will hit your knee and injure himself if you are doing it correctly.
Take his grip from your collar by pressure of your forearm, and then pivot to
your left, striking him in the face or eyes with a shako-ken (palm strike). Let
the strike come up like an uppercut, and do not launch it like a thrown punch.
It must be deceptive. At the moment after the strike, (your left hand should
still be holding his right hand), turn the wrist flat, pointing the palm
parallel with the ground. Bring your hand from the strike to cover and press the
back of the hand down. "Walk" with the uke, in a crossover step motion,
characterized by the Koto Ryu. Uke will go down. Keep your back straight at all
times to avoid being taken off balance, and remember to bend your knees. These
are the basics for the later expressions of the combat techniques in the
Bujinkan. If you don't keep serious and focused on what you are doing, (i.e.,
learning to protect your life), then you may end up like the unfortunate fellow
above. Pay attention to what you are doing!
URA-GYAKU: Ura-gyaku is close to Omote-gyaku. Once again, uke grabs your lapel
and you match it, as in a mirror. This time, strike first to the eyes (shakoken), making sure not to be seen by the uke as throwing a strike. Rather, lift
it up like an uppercut coming from under his chin. Immediately after the strike,
reach across with the same hand you struck with and reach your hand around the
uke's grabbing hand, setting your fingers up and into his palm. When you make
this grab, you will have pivoted on your feet with bent knees, like you were
skiing. This protects the groin. After grabbing his hand, pivot back to the
other direction, point the palm parallel with the ground, and walk, as in the
Koto Ryu, with a crossover step motion. Keep the uke's wrist in the center of
your chest when you pivot, or raise it above your head.
ONIKUDAKI: Uke grabs your lapel with his right hand. Step with your right foot
onto his right foot. At the same time, raise your right arm and place it behind
the tricep area of his grabbing arm, keeping your hand open. Place your left
hand in the inside of his wrist, that is, closest to his body, and the opposite
of your right arm, which is behind his arm. Keep both of your hands open.
Replace your right foot with your left, so that you are standing on his right
foot with your left. At the same time that you step, roll his arm with your left
arm pressing on his wrist. Roll it until you can grasp your hands together. (For
a tighter wrap, bend your fingers over his arm and grab your fingers.) Now his
arm is bent backwards into a damaging shoulder-lock. Take a step back with your
left leg, stepping to your back, and away from his right side. He will fall.
Keep your spine straight. This is the demon crusher.
UCHI-MAKI-DORI: Also known as: Musha-Dori! Uke
of your jacket under your elbow. He grabs with
him with your left foot first, stepping on his
comes up and over and behind his arm, near his
and/or when someone has really got a good grip

grabs your lapel, or the sleeve


his right hand. You step towards
toes. At the same time, your arm
triceps. You do this quickly
on you. You turn to the side, so

that you are facing in the same direction as he is, your foot still on his toes,
however. You bring your arm towards your body as you turn, so that you are
turning his arm in the same manner as Oni-kudaki, that is, with the rolling of
the arm and the upwards lifting pressure. With Uchi-makidori, however, you raise
the arm up high, until the uke is coming off his feet from the pain. You grab
your palms together,the hand on the bottom has the palm pointing skyward, the
hand on top has the palm pointing down. That way, if he struggles, he will only
tighten the grip. Kick to the back of his knee with your left leg. He will fall
backwards. Maintain the hold. You can follow up by resting your knee joint into
his temple.
JUMONJI NO KAMAE: The fire technique. Stand in Jumonji. That is, stand with your
wrists and arms crossed, and whatever side leg is in front, so should be the
same side arm. Feet are shoulder-width apart, toes in front turned slightly
inward, gripping the ground. Your knees are bent. Uke punches with a right fist
at your face. You step to your right slightly, (your left leg should be in front
with your left arm in front to begin). Swing your left arm up and punch
underneath his arm. Then take the same punching arm and lean forward with a
Boshi-ken strike(thumb strike) to his ribcage. Raise that same arm up to his eye
level, with your palm towards the ground, hand straight at his eyes. If he
advances forward, he catches your fingers in his eyes. Withdraw your hand after
a moment, and switch arms and legs for the other side. Uke attacks the other
side. Repeat.
HICHO NO KAMAE: You are standing on one leg, as in the picture of me above. Your
supporting knee is slightly bent, and your arms are as in Ichimonji no kamae.
Uke either punches at your ribcage or kicks with a stomp kick to your ribcage
(we'll say your left ribs, while standing on your right leg, left leg cocked as
in the above picture.) You swing your left arm down and redirect the punch or
kick, then footstomp uke with your left leg. Then you plant both feet down and
advance to the uke with a Shuto strike to his collarbone, pulling the strike
downwards (90 degrees), striking with your right hand to the uke's right side.
GANSEKINAGE: Uke grabs your sleeve. If he grabs your sleeve from the elbow
down, you will put your hand behind your head with the movement, as though you
were lying down on your head. If he grabs your sleeve from the elbow up, then
you will do as such: Uke grabs your left sleeve with his right hand. You step
forward with your left foot, putting it inside , towards the middle of his body,
and turning parallel with his body. As you are doing this, bring your left arm
(still being held by uke) underneath his arm until his arm is resting on your
bicep. Your hand remains open, and your hand's palm is touching the shoulderblade of the uke, or above it. You keep your back straight, even though you lean
forward to do the throw. Don't lean from the hips, let the whole body lean at
the same time. Don't bend from the hips. Kick your leg back, or simply let it go
back into the area of the uke's right foot, causing him to go off balance. As
you lean forward with your whole body, you rotate a little on the hips
horizontally and apply pressure against the shoulder area. The uke goes down.
ICHIMONJI NO KAMAE: Begin in kamae. Only difference is that whatever arm is
lead, you will place the other arm's fist (in a Fudo-ken) resting in the crook
of the elbow. You look through the space created between the lead arm and the
fist. You are judging directions of movement with this. Think about it. Uke
delivers a right punch to your head. You will have your left arm forward, right
fist in the crook of your left arm's elbow. You step back and to the side in a
triangle principle, or 45 degree angle, as discussed in the Go-gyo page on
performing Sui no kata. As in Sui no kata, you will bring the left arm up to
punch his attacking arm, but instead of the huge, exaggerated movement in the

Go-gyo, you will use a tight, compact movement. Do it quickly. Then draw the
lead leg back, as in all of the Go-gyo movements, and then step forward and
deliver a Shuto strike with your right arm to the opponents neck or collarbone,
stepping forward with the strike.
THE KIHON HAPPO OF THE TAKAGI YOSHIN RYU JUTAIJUTSU
OMOTE-GYAKU: For a more detailed description of Omote-gyaku, see above. Once you
understand the Gyokku Ryu school's kihon happo, then you can perform the Takagi
school's kihon much simpler. After initial collar grab, (assuming a grab from
the attacker's right hand), you cover with the left hand, and step back with the
right leg. You strike to the opponent's eyes or at least feint towards them.
When they flinch, you remove their wrist, keeping it close to the center of your
chest, and point the palm parallel with the ground. The uke goes down on their
back.You take your left leg and step on their face, rolling their head to the
side away from you. You step over their body by their face area, controlling the
head, causing them to turn to their stomach. You will have placed your right
foot under their neck, lifting upwards with a toe strike into their throat. You
press down on their arm and wrist, causing a wrist and/or shoulder and/or arm
break.
URA-GYAKU: See information above to learn where to go to get a deeper
understanding of the kihon happo. You must learn the kihon happo of the Gyokku
Ryu before studying these techniques, as these are not described in detail:
Uke grabs your lapel with his right hand. You cover with your left hand and step
back with your right leg. You strike with your right hand to his face, then
reach over with your right hand and grab his hand, putting your fingers deep
into his palm. You turn to your right more fully and point his wrist towards the
ground, becoming parallel with the ground. He does a Taihenjutsu front shoulder
roll to escape. You stick your right leg over his body and place the heel
towards his hip joint, foot flat on the ground. Your other leg is close behind
his head, touching his face. You take your left hand and put it below his elbow;
Your right hand is still holding his wrist. You fall to your back, bringing his
arm close to your body, and as high up as you can, (bend your knees). Put your
left leg over his face, so that both of your legs are over him. You point his
thumb towards the ceiling so that his elbow only bends towards your midsection.
Arch your hips and extend the elbow. This is a jiu-taijutsu arm lock.
ONI-KUDAKI: Uke grabs your lapel with his right hand. You strike to the uke's
ribcage as you get your wrists and arms into oni kudaki. You step pretty much
the same as the Gyokku Ryu, except that when the uke falls to the ground, you
place your legs as in Ura-gyaku. You sit straight up and continue to turn the
arm in oni kudaki fashion, not letting the uke move out of it because of the
placement of your feet.
Asayama Ichiden Ryu Kihon Waza
Reiho
(Bowing)
From shizen no kamae kneel on to right knee with right hand on knee, left hand
on left thigh. Bow head. Lift right hand and slap floor saying Oh te a wanakne

Mae Ukemi
(Forward break fall)
Koho Ukemi (Backward break fall)
Sokuho Ukemi (Sidewards break fall (upper arm is at waist level))

Note: Taihenjutsu is very important for those practicing martial arts. One uses
it to avoid the enemy's attack, as well as for the purpose of attacking. Freedom
of attack and defence is a major point in Taihenjutsu. Taihenjutsu also contains
footwork, includes body drops or dives and examining or feeling out techniques.
Mastering these types of techniques is as a whole known as Taihenjutsu.

Taihenjutsu Mutodori Kata
Note: An essential point or foundation of taihen is to first measure the
distance between you and the opponent's sword. Then, it is to know the character
of the opponent's weapon. The next thing is to avoid the opponent's weapon, to
avoid the sword. It is important to avoid, not to dodge it. Otherwise, it will
hit you. Avoiding is most important.
First measure the distance between you and the opponent with respect to the
sword, taiken kihon. Then, as you raise the sword over your head in jodan and
strike in, about the first 3 inches of the sword tip will hit the opponent's
forehead.
Hira No Kamae As sword comes down change into ichimonji no kamae and roll away.
Note: Roll away straight at ninety degrees. This is a fundamental. Carefully
seeing the interval between you and the weapon. This sort of training is a most
important element in taihenjutsu.
Ichimonji No Kamae As sword comes down roll forwards, from ichimonji no kamae to
the right at 45 degrees, on the right shoulder to land on one knee. Attacker
faces defender with sword in daijodan. Defender strikes with shito ken to
suigetsu.
Note: Be in a position where you can easily leap in right away. In this way,
creating by means of the direction of rolling a distance from where it is easy
to leap in is one of the methods of taihenjutsu.
Jumonji No Kamae As sword comes down tobi or step back from jumonji to jumonji
no kamae. Tobi in to kiten ken to uko, then again or kiten ken to kote.
Note: After you step back, the legs are still important. The legs must be able
to kick immediately. You have to be able to move, the legs launch you forward.
It is no good just to step back. Legs immediately able to jump are important.

Fly in at the opponent. This is important. All right. Leap, moving, topple the
adversary.
Zenpo Tenkai (Forwards flip to back)
Note: Always land in jumonji.
Note: Taihenjutsu is very important for those practicing martial arts. One uses
it to avoid the enemy's attack, as well as for the purpose of attacking. Freedom
of attack and defence is a major point in Taihenjutsu. Taihenjutsu also contains
footwork, includes body drops or dives and examining or feeling out techniques.
Mastering these types of techniques is as a whole known as Taihenjutsu.

Koto Ryu Koppojutsu Kihon Waza Hoken (Secret Fists)
Shuto ken (Wake up rolling strike) Use sides of hands, with the hand open approx
60 Degrees. Snap the hand open on impact (The strike is used a lot.)
Fudo ken (Spiritual blade) Use the clenched fist for punching, and striking
Note: The fists involve more than just striking with the hand. By moving the
legs, the speed of the fist is doubled.
Boshi Ken (Thumb drive fist) Use an extended thumb that is supported by a fist
to jab, and strike muscle areas, and nerve endings.
Shako Ken (Claw strike) Use the palm, and the fingertips to strike and rake,
then change this into a fist.
Note: In this five finger fist, the five fists of the fingertips as well as the
one fist of the palm hit the target.
Hosen Ken (Bee sting strike) 3 fingers in a stabbing strike. Use mainly the ends
of the fingers
Note: Here one strikes with three fingers. If one thinks that such a strike is
too weak, one then puts in a toe kick in the interval between the three-finger
strikes. One is creating a rhythm. This can also be called rhythm fist.
Shishitan Ken (Pinkie strike) This fist can easily be used against the neck,
underarms or other areas. Train fingers for endurance.
Kikaku Ken (Demon horn strike) Using the thick bone on the forehead, sides, and
the back of the head, in a smashing butting action.
Note: The forehead is also a fist. Of course the fists rest on the attitude that
"I am a fist", and thus one proceeds to toughen all of one's body. That is how
one trains.
Soku Shin To (Toe sword) Use the tips of the toes to strike, or jab the target.
Sometimes it is best to first use Hicho then the geri.
Sokuyaku Keri (Sole of foot) Use the bottom ball, heel (sole) of the foot, to
shove into the target. The heel contacts first.
Note: Next, one leg and two leg kicks when one's balance is upset after a single
leg kick, one executes a backward roll break fall.
Kiri Gaishi (Shin / instep kick) Kick by just lifting the leg as one, not as a
snap kick.
Tenken Keri (Flying kick) Kick inside to the jaw and push down as in sokuyaku
geri.
Atemi no Tanren (Body Conditioning)
Trees: Make full and proper contact with tree to build up striking power.
Note: To begin Atemi training one first wraps straw around a tree, and then
wraps a cloth over it. It is said that in the old days animal hide was used for
this purpose. Strike with the concentration from all of one's body going into
the one fist. Then proceed to vary one fist into the next, conditioning them one
after the other.
In a Bucket: Put sand into a bucket and strike into it with various strikes.
Graduate to courser material, going through gravel and on up to small rocks.

Partners: Make half but proper contact on skin of partner with fists and feet,
to increase resistance to pain and toughening of muscles.

Kurai Dori (Kamae)(5)
1. Ichimonji No Kamae (Figure number one posture)
The front leg is slightly bent. The corresponding arm is out, pointing at
attacker, and the hand is open, the other hand is closed and by jakkin, standing
in a 50/50 posture.
From hidari ichimonji no kamae, dori migi geri with migi arm, migi sokugyaku
geri to kinteki, migi geri to supporting leg.
2. Seigan No Kamae (Straight eye posture)
As in the ichimonji no kamae except the rear hand is at obi level.
Note: The positioning of the feet in assuming these positions is very important.
The position of the feet completely determines the distance. If the position of
the feet is not always capable of changing correctly, it cannot be called a true
seigan no kamae. It is important for there to be allowance in one's movements.
Strike while remaining in the kamae. Then hit in unseen places.
From hidari seigan no kamae, migi tsuki to jakkin of migi tsuki, strike to
wakitsubo with hidari fudo ken ending up in jumonji no kamae, push off balance
with migi te and migi shuto ken to butsumetsu.
3. Hira Ichimonji No Kamae (Flat number one posture)
The feet are as in hicho no kamae but the knee is facing out to the side. The
arms are out stretched to the side of the body.
Note: Recall the image of a top spinning forcefully. This involves stabilising
the centre of gravity of one's body in space. When the opponent comes in at any
point, the top will flip away the opponent's attacks. That type of movement is
hidden within this kamae.
Fall back to slap away tsuki with the same te, lean through and slap the hadome.
Slap away tsuki with the other te and geri (with same leg as slap) to shinchu
then to asagasumi.
4. Hoi (Hoko) No Kamae (Bear receiving posture) (Encircling posture)
The left foot is slightly forwards, and the body is very upright. The hands are
held above the head, in shako ken.
Note: The whole posture looks as though you are holding a large ball. The weight
ratio is 70/30 forwards, make yourself look big. In one's mind there lies the
posture of being ready to assume an offensive position at any time, the
attacking posture of "I'm coming for you".
Dori tsuki push down, shako ken to murasame and push down.
5. Bobi No Kamae (Defensive posture)

Standing in a natural posture of 50/50, migi hand out front in fudo ken, hidari
hand on katana.
Note: Bobi no kamae contains the strong mental posture of, "Come on, any time!",
of always being ready to respond to the opponent's attack. Although the migi
hand is held out in front, it is very important to use the front and back hands
in the same way, based on movement of the feet. As this is kurai dori, the feet
must move along the correct track of victory.
Yoko aruki to ura of tsuki, use back of fudo ken to hadome, step back across to
tsuki with other te to asagasumi, come back into ganseki nage.
Shoden Gata (18)(1 technique, 2 henka)
1. Yokuto (Eagles Blade) (Taloned Blade) (Wing Break) (scooping up and throwing)
A: Migi katate mune dori
D: From Shizen No Kamae, migi kiri gaishi to kinteki, migi boshi ken to uko.
Hidari foot in and hidari happa ken to asagasumi.
Note: When the opponent grabs your lapel or comes in with a right punch against
various attacks, one uses the same technique yokuto. In the original warrior
arts, one had to be able to change from the same opening against a variety of
attacks. According to the ancient teaching, you must always cover the opponents
right hand that grabs your lapel with your left hand. This time the attack is
with the right fist. When the opponent grabs your lapel, the manner of kicking
also changes based on the positioning of the feet. The manner of punching
changes as well.
When striking in with the right thumb, one proceeds by pushing in with the left
arm. Push in, and then pow! This is also very important. If you come in with the
thumb from out here, it doesn't really go in. Come in like this with the foot on
the out side, then kick and take the ear. The ear is torn. Bring him up. This
time when moving in, grab the opponents left shoulder with your left hand in the
manner of koppo. From here the kick goes in right away. Then push down. when you
have a staff you can use the same techniques in the same manner with the staff.
Techniques and weapons can be used effectively together. This is a
characteristic of koppojutsu or ancient bujutsu.

carefully at how one's own grabbing hand becomes a fist, seizing a vital point
on the opponent. Then the knee also becomes a fist, executing a kick at the
opponent. In this position, it becomes a kick. This is the same when the
opponent grabs your hand. This time, take the opponents elbow with your elbow.
Your footwork allows you to take the opponent's elbow. Now take a vital point,
and move into an elbow break and throw. Here one takes three places: the elbow,
the wrist, and the opponent's neck. Jakkin vital point strike. Then a back
throw. Strike the jakkin, and go into gyakuzeoi. The same thing with a staff.

Shinden Fudo Ryu Dakentaijutsu
Kihon Waza
Tatara Ken (Secret Fists)
Fudo ken (Spiritual blade)
Use the clenched fist for punching, and striking
NOTE: The fists involve more than just striking with the hand. By moving the
legs, the speed of the fist is doubled.

Sweeping fudo ken as you walk to kage.


NOTE: Here rather than punching with the hand, bring the leg forward first and
throw the fist at the opponent. This; is a characteristic of the fist of Shinden
Fudo-ryu. One punches in a straight, natural manner. This fist is not twisted
here. Thus, for instance, when punching the opponent's throat, the punch is set
up from here. It is already determined here. This makes the punch strong. Then
launch forward.
NOTE: Here you walk forward, opening to the side based on the manner of walking,
at which time you punch naturally. This punch is for when you are walking past
each other.punch in from below. You punch naturally. Walk naturally in this
manner. Shifting to the side, punch with the fist. So you do not punch straight.
You walk like this and deliver a vital point strike in a natural manner. Walking
like this, shift the legs a little and strike.
Shuto ken (Wake up rolling strike)
Use the sides of the hands, with the hand open approx 60 Degrees. Snap the hand
open on impact. (The strike is used a lot.)
Shako Ken (Claw strike)
Use the palm, and the fingertips to strike and rake, then change this into a
fist.
Note: In this five finger fist, the five fists of the fingertips as well as the
one fist of the palm hit the target. Also use in a slapping motion.
Kikaku Ken (Demon horn strike)
Using the thick bone on the forehead, sides, and the back of the head, in a
smashing butting action.
Note: The forehead is also a fist. Of course the fists rest on the attitude that
"I am a fist", and thus one proceeds to toughen all of one's body. That is how
one trains.
Sokuyaku Geri (Sole of foot)
Use the bottom ball, heel (sole) of the foot, to shove into the target. The heel
contacts first.
Note: Next, one leg and two leg kicks when one's balance is upset after a single
leg kick, one executes a backward roll break fall.
Juji Geri (Cross kick)
Kick the foot across the other leg low as walking, not as a snap kick.
Taihenjutsu Ukemi
With a partner do hip throws while landing on your own feet.
Note: The break fall here is very important. When thrown with a back throw while
wearing a sword, it is very dangerous if you don't land feet first. Put on a
sword. Put on a long and short sword. The fact of the two swords is important.
When you come in here, you have to come in between the swords. Break the fall in
this manner.
Zenpo Kaiten (Forward roll, relaxed)
Koho Kaiten (Backward roll and push up then tobi for distance)
Atemi no Tanren (Body Conditioning)
Trees:
Use fallen branches across shoulders to swing and strike trees and to lift as
weights to condition hips and legs.
Note: Before all, knowing nature is the foundation. Thus one trains by using the
things of nature to make the body strong. First one must condition the legs and
hips.
Make full and proper contact with tree to build up striking power with strikes
and kicks.
Note: Then one must condition the fists. Here, doing body strikes against a
tree, part of a withered tree broke off and fell. Becoming able to sense such
things is also part of the training. This nice sized tree could be used to
toughen the forehead.
Climb tree and strangle with legs also dropping back for a type of situp.

Note: One uses trees to practice the do-jime torso srangle.


Use young trees, rest arm on them and force to bend by stepping in all
directions.
Note: For the taijutsu of ganseki-nage throws, making use of this bamboo's
elastic force is very significant for strengthening one's body. Discovering such
possibilities, one would train using the bamboo to increase one's power. The
ganseki-nage differs depending on direction. Thus one bends the bamboo while
changing position.
Step around a tree as if to throw. Juji geri to trees as walking.
Note: Walking through a bamboo grove one practises the unique kicking method of
Shinden-ryu. This is training in take-ori ("bamboo break") kicking. One walks
and kicks without stopping.
Breaking old branches with shuto.
Note: Here, rather than breaking at once, one breaks gradually, with a series of
blows.
Strip bark from trees with shako.
Note: Then one tears bark off trees. This is similar to tearing human skin.
Grabbing the core of an old tree and pull it out.
Note: One grabs and crushes, or grabs and holds, a withered core inside a big
tree. This training increases gripping strength for chokes or seizing muscles.
Note: For training in the ancient teachings one did not build a dojo or make
training tools and then train. One would foremost use the things of nature.

palm facing up (does not mune dori), drop body weight, lift migi te toward
tenmon, keep knees next to knees, turn anti clockwise, place migi foot behind
migi foot (keep knees bent) push tenmon to nage. Stomp butsumetsu to finish.
Note: In Shinden Fudo-Ryu, this right hand is the trick. Moreover, there are no
set postures. Body change becomes the postures. The opponent comes with a back
throw. Here it is important to drop the hips, but the hand is even more
important. One uses it, for example, to find the opponent's weapons. This is one
possibility. Let's go to the next.
1a. Nichi Geki Henka
A: Kumi uchi, attempts seio nage,while wearing swords.
D: Cover migi te, force tsuba into kage with migi te (or if unarmed fudo ken).
Note: The opponent grabs you and goes to apply a technique. Using this hand, a
vital point attack results. His sword guard hits a vital point.

A: Kumi uchi, attempts seio nage,while wearing swords.
D: Reach ushiro and dori scabbard with hidari te, bring back to dori A's migi
te, jime with migi te pushing shoto, hidari giri to migi yaku to take down.

Note: The opponent grabs and goes to apply a technique. Here, the sword guard
strikes into the ribs. Or, as the opponent comes in, take his scabbard from
behind. This way one can control the opponent using his swords. One can choke
here using the swords.
1c. Nichi Geki Henka
A: Kumi uchi, attempts seio nage.
D: Hidari shuki ken to butsumetsu.
Note: The opponent comes to apply his technique. Strike in here with the elbow.
This alone can defeat the opponent.
1d. Nichi Geki Henka
A: Kumi uchi, attempts seio nage.
D: Migi fudo ken to shichibatsu and control migi te with pressure.
Note: A strike to the shichibatsu vital point. This too makes him submit. This
is one possibility.

A: Kumi uchi, attempts seio nage.
D: Cross migi te over and (a: fudo ken to asagasumi) (b:) slap asagasumi, hidari
te under to use bottom of fudo ken to strike shichibatsu / koe area. (c:) shuto
ken to uko, hold other side with hidari te to jime, twist head to throw away.
Note: Take the opponent in this manner. Take him like this. Then strike the
opponent. This is a variation against a throw. Once more. Move like this,
without striking the face, pulling back with the hand. From there, strike in and
choke. Then turn him around. You use a head hold.
1f. Nichi Geki Henka
A: Kumi uchi, attempts seio nage.
D: Juji no kamae to ushiro to nage no kamae, to break back and nage.
or
D: Juji no kamae to mae with hidari leg, walk around to take down ushiro, fudo

your legs. Here you can break his back. Let's do another one. This time move in
the other direction. From here, going down with your leg, take him this way.
2. Gekkan (Moon Liver)

breakfall over arm) (option if he is wearing swords, lean on arm and pull on
scabbard) (option if you are wearing swords draw and cut neck), fudo ken to
happa and finish in gedan ichimonji no kamae.
Note: The opponent comes with a punch. Dodge by avoiding the strike. Then turn
to the side. Then as you take the opponent's shoulder. If he comes with the
other hand, you can avoid the strike. This is important. If you want to do
something nastier, move in like this, with an elbow strike. This type of body
movement is important. Move in and kick. Then bring down forward. The arm is the
crux here. Moving forward across it, falling across the arm, you can break it.
This is one point. He punches. Avoid.
When you move in here, as you can see, the swords can hit you. ~ That is why I
moved into the space between the hilts. From here, you cannot kick with your
feet. In such a case, draw back and kick. Then pull him forward with a broad
movement. The opponent falls forward. Here, the opponent displaces his own ribs
with his sword guard. Then as you lean on his arm and pull on his sword, the
opponent is forced to submit.
The opponent punches. Move into here. From there, lift the elbow and come in
with the knee. Then draw back. The sword guard goes into the ribs. Then as you
lean on the arm it becomes painful. If you lift the sword it becomes even more
painful. In this way, when the opponent is wearing swords, just some simple

techniques can be very powerful. This time you are both wearing swords. The
opponent punches. Now use the other sword to stab.

D: Hidari uke (glide type) and migi giri to gorin, migi te to scabbard and pull
around to take down mae pulling on scabbard lean across and pull up on sword as

Note: Punch. When you've moved out to a distance, come in with a kick. Then
rather than taking the shoulder, take his scabbard. Then take him down in this
direction. Then squeeze like this with the swords. Then draw the sword, and

go to grasp. When he comes to grab, lift his swords as you grab his shoulders.
Then leap like this. Hit with the hilt. Then fall back and get right up. Rather
than just falling, you can throw things into his eyes and the like. There are
many variations when the opponent is wearing a pair of swords.
