O perspectivă asupra Tradiției japoneze

O perspectiva asupra Traditiei japoneze (in accest caz, Hakko ryu jujutsu):

“The Okuyamas think it very important to know personally each of the advanced teachers, so the numbers are kept to a minimum. /…/

He says that a patient’s mental attitude plays a large part in the development, and so also in the improvement of an illness, since body and spirit are contained within each other and the condition of one has and effect upon the other. /…/

Entrance to old ryu, including those of jujutsu, was-and still is-restricted. Recommendations and introductions are required. /…/

With regard to training, ryu headmasters are guided by the concept that it is always preferable to train a few students well, rather than many students not so well. One-on-one master-to-disciple training is still the common method in traditional ryu. This policy, while restricting the breadth of a ryu’s following, certainly ensures its depth. /…/

More for practical than secretive reasons, such an oath serves two purposes. First, it warns new disciples that they will be held accountable for unnecessary use or abuse of the ryu’s techniques. Second, it informs disciples that, until properly certified and authorized, it would be best if they avoided embarrassing themselves and the ryu by discussing and perhaps showing techniques which they have not thoroughly mastered. /…/

Following acceptance into a ryu, the tehodoki (hands-untying period) begins, during which the disciple’s dedication, patience and pliability will be tested. /…/

The essence of the techniques will always remain elusive to those who have not undergone prolonged study of the basics under a qualified instructor./…/

Eventually, if selected by the headmaster, a disciple will be exposed to the hidden points (Higi) of the ryu and its secret techniques (Okuden). /…/

Although this advanced training offers new insights and options while exposing a student’s limitations, without a firm foundation in the basic techniques, such practice will have little meaning and its real significance will elude the exponent. /…/

This obligation imbues later headmasters with a certain resistance to change, not because they are unskilled or unable to devise changes and techniques of their own, but because by assuming the sokeship of the ryu, they have specifically agreed not to change the original system.”

In imagine este J.H. Gray, Maestru format de către Takata, în postura de la începutul tehnici Reiji ho (Ghidarea de către Spirit).
