    Default Sekiguchi Archery

    Hello,

    has anybody here some informations about a (probably well known) bow and arrow teacher by the name of Sekiguchi, who lived during the Meiji Time?

    Regards,

    Henning Wittwer

    Default Mr. Sekiguchi Genta

    Perhaps he is Mr. Sekiguchi Genta of Bishu Chikurin ryu.

    He published a famous book of archery on April 20, 1894.

    If you want to strike your opponent, you should let him strike at you.
    If your opponent strikes at you, he himself will already have been struck.

    Hello,

    thank you very much for this information. I think you hit the bull's eye. I was able to made out his book, but could you provide some biographical points about him (date of birth) or a link. Japanese would be fine.

    Best regards,

    Default 関口源太 Sekiguchi Genta

    Unfortunately, Mr. Sekiguchi’s book doesn’t cover his profile.
    Kobayshi Shizan(小林紫山), the apprentice of Sekiguchi Genta, published Sekiguchi's instruction as a book in 1931.
    Kobayashi's book has the photograph of Mr. Sekiguchi.
    I do not have this book, but you may see Sekiguchi's profile in the book.
    I found this book in the list of the book collection of the International Budo University, Archery institute. (国際武道大学 弓道研究室)

    If you are interested in the book, you should contact with Assistant Prof. Matsuo Makinori (松尾牧則) in web board of IBU. I know his mail address, but I cannot post it here.
