I train just to pass on the knowledge that I have obtained as well as dedicate myself to preserving the traditional ideas of budo. Keeping a true martial spirit alive in today’s ultra modern world is not an easy task. However, I fully believe that a true martial art is a way of life and not something one should view as a hobby or a sport. Many, like myself when I was young, will begin their training with little idea of what they are truly getting into. Many only hold true what they see in movies or TV to be what the martial arts are. Thoughts of getting in shape or learning self defense moves are what most set out to achieve. But with time and proper guidance one will eventually realize that with the right approach toward training one can gain more than he or she would ever imagine from the study of budo. One of the many philosophies that I teach my students is that through the old ways one can better understand the new. What this means is that by studying what some would call "classical" techniques we can see how these techniques are not outdated and are still viable in today’s world. One just needs to understand how they would be applied mentally or physically in a modern world. With this deeper knowledge of budo each student will take more than just technical, physical movement from each lesson. He or she will become more enlightened as to who they are and how they fit into the grand scheme of things. The study of Budo is the way of life I have chosen.
I can’t speak for, nor do I claim to know exactly what they believe or teach. However, I can tell you who I am and what I believe. I have been studying the martial arts for nearly 50 years and teaching for all my life ; however I still consider myself forever a student. I feel after all these years I have only scratched the surface of what budo has to offer which makes the study of it even more intriguing. During these years I have gained a deeper understanding of its endless possibilities was well as it many levels of application. I tell my students that once one has decided to train in the martial arts they must understand that it is something that has a beginning but no end. One can quit but one can never finish. I feel that if one thinks her or she has reached the end of any martial arts system because of the color of their belt then they have truly missed the point entirely. I also believe that knowledge, not the belt or tournaments, makes the warrior.
