Without knowledge, a high level of warrior skill will never be focused.
Without high level of skill, one may never attain a high level of true strength.
Without true strength, knowledge may not be applied.
Without applied knowledge, one will never find wisdom.
Without wisdom, one will never find the enlightenment of which they seek.
This is a insight towards training that I came up with this morning, not for sure if it makes sense to any of you, but it makes sense to me, I hope that it helps all of you with your training.
Thank you all for your support!

“Outside of Japan, people think Bushido is synonymous with harakiri. Actually, the meaning of Bushido is to achieve something in this world and then to be able to throw away this body and accept death. But this concept is very easily misunderstood. It’s really quite different from just going out and dying. If you fail to achieve something and say “Oh, I must kill myself” it’s not a very productive way of thinking. Bushido rejects that irresponsible way of thinking. There is also in Bushido the concept of continuing to live even though you may have to live in shame. If there is a way to right the wrong you’ve done, then you should do so. This is the real Bushido.”
Risuke Ōtake (大竹利典)
Shihan (Teaching Master) of Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū
Risuke Otake of Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu (one of the oldest koryu bujutsu, dating back to the middle Muromachi period) said in an interview that the popular idea of Bushido is over-romantic and misleading.
I hope that you enjoy today’s lesson and insight!
