This is a personal journal of thoughts primarily sprouting from my study of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu in Japan. Writing allows me to free my mind. It helps clarify in a certain light my weaknesses and strengths in the martial arts and life. I can then attempt to move forward and grow further in life and budo. I think it is also important to feel the breath between the lines to gain a deeper understanding of ones sense, personal direction, and growth.
For those who wish to add their own experiences and thoughts, I’d like to give you an open invitation to do so. It is my hope that we can share as friends our enriching experiences through the Budo of Japan as taught by Soke Masaaki Hatsumi and his Shihan.
