View Full Version : Shu-shi-no-kon

19th March 2002, 21:52
Hello all

This is my first post so a hearty welcome to all.

My question:

I have been training in Matayoshi Kobudo for about 3 years now, and the first kata that we learn is Shu-shi-no-kon (no dai or sho in my style).

I am just wondering if anyone can shed some light onto what Shu-shi-no-kon actually means. In the Fumio Demura book it says that this kata was designed by Chinen.

However, several people have told me that this kata is named after a man called Shushi, just like Matsumura-no-zai etc.

I know that people on this forum will be able to answer this question (I have posted on another forum to no avail)
