Finding Balance… | Balance / Earthing

I’m outside and practicing a grounding / earthing exercise to help balance & connect me better to nature. I’m not going to lie, this week I’ve experience the largest betrayal of my martial arts career. I can’t change what has happened anymore than I can change the direction of the wind.

‪I’ll keep on keeping on.‬

Kanwa Jikan (緩和時間):  time to relax

Here I am (6/11/2012) done with the day; thought that I would relax and check out the hottest page on facebook!  I hope that you are all having a great day!

“If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it.” –  Herodotus; 484 – 425 BC

DOKA
Songs of the Way

In many forms of budo; doka (道歌), or “songs of the way” are presented to help teach the deeper meaning essence of the art; the Tenjin-ryu school of jujutsu (1 of the 7 warrior traditions of the Budo Ryu) is no different. These doka are arranged in the 5-7-5-7-7 syllable pattern of traditional Japanese waka (和歌) verse.

DOKO ICHI; 道歌 一

Shin no bu wa
Fude yak kuchi niwa
Subekarazu
Kotobure naseba
Kami wa yurusaza

(TRANSLATION)

True Bu (do)
Cannot be described by
The brush or by the mouth –
The gods will not allow you
To rely upon words!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s lesson, I wish you all the best in your journey of Budo.
