What's Coming

We will continue explore not only Budo but many other subjects on the nature of the arts we practice. In the upcoming issue we will begin exploration of kata and its many levels. There will also be continuing columns on body mechanics, self-defense, kata applications and health. In particular look for the following articles in upcoming issues:

  • A second article in a series on Bodhidharma that examines the truth behind the many claims and myths associated with the beginning of Zen, martial arts in China, Qi gong exercise sets and even information that reflects on kata.

  • Continuing exploration of Budo, its meaning and historical development. Included are articles on the practice of etiquette and Zen influences that reflect the very nature of Budo and its practice - aspects that most practitioners today neither understand nor appreciate.

  • The beginning of a ongoing exploration of karate kata and their levels of meaning. Included will be applications, but also aspects of philosophy, strategy, principles of combat, psychology, spirit and energy.

  • Examination of some of the ancient grappling and striking techniques of legendary Okinawan karate teacher Hohen Soken that provide a unique perspective and understanding for many of the techniques that are practiced today.

  • Articles on judo, aikido, and many other arts.
