The Search Beyond Technique

'So it is with All Things'. 'To recognise the way is to practise the way.'


Zen, Confucius and the Art of Swordsmanship - 'Tengu-geijutsu-ron'

'Motionless while moving, in stillness, not still.'  - Chosen Shissai.


'The perfect art of swordsmanship consists of two components; technical control and spiritual awareness. The two together must form a unity; each is unalterable by the other.'
