    I would first like to convey my gratitude to you for openly participating in a discussion as this one. Sometimes answers are elusive and times like these are rare. My question is this: How do you go about teaching a living ryu when it, as yourself, is everchanging? I pose this question because I currently received my Shidoshi-ho license in the Bujinkan and I feel I am having trouble translating ever-changing life experience into black and white techniques. Since you have been studying and teaching longer than I have lived, I look to you for any direction you may offer. It will be greatly appreciated.

    After you have achieved certain mastery of the basics, if the opponent changes what he is doing and you respond, techniques should emerge naturally.
