I write about budo, Japanese martial arts, and all their related subjects, including technique, personal and spiritual development, kata, fighting and what makes an art into a Way.  Japanese martial arts have roots going back a thousand years and more.  Until recently, only the modern,gendai, arts such as judo, karate, kendo and aikido were available to most people.  Now even the koryu bugei, the ancient forms, some going back 500 and 600 years, are widely available.

I write about how the arts, gendai and koryu, are practiced and what that practice means for practitioners of the arts.  The gendai and koryu arts have very different origins and this influences how and why people practice them. 

Most of the information about these arts is still in Japanese.  The support of Patrons helps to pay  training, books and videos that are source material, as well as to pay for travel to Japan to train with the masters of these arts.
