The essence of our martial arts
IN THE WORDS OF ICHIKAWA SOSUI:
The Essence of martial arts is not only to kill the people but, also to follow the present techniques namely “Bu” or martial power enables to lay down arms, “Do”, or arts lead to goodwill .
Sincere continuous effort without laziness which seek for the truism will reach to our philosophy, therefore, let’s start studying the books written and left by our old philosophers, in order to understand the soul through.
