So I will share thoughts, reflections and research under the following headings:
KoRyu Budo (Iaido, Shuriken, Jojitsu)
Arts (mostly written)
That way will help keep items organized and easy to read until I learn to use the blog more effectively. Most of the research I will share will be sure to include citations as a core goal of this blog is to inform but also to point the way for further investigation. This is particularly of importance under the above as too often discussions slip into personal opinion or unsubstantiated claims presented uncritically. Hopefully, the blog will serve as a springboard for those interested to read, think, research and discuss pertinent issues more deeply. Questions always welcome. Life is a mixture of art and discursive space.
Okinawan and Japanese Budo
