    Manaka-san, thank you for honoring us with your wisdom and experience.

    I wanted to know how your training in the martial arts has improved the connection with your surroundings? How has the application of martial arts improved your flow with the world as a whole?

    Thank You.

    Without Kuzushi (an unbalancing action), techniques do not work. The movement of human society is exactly the same. When you wish to do something, you must create conditions in which others have no choice but to accept it. Budo and the way of living as a human being are one and the same. "Bu-shin-wa wo motte totoshi wo nasu."

    Manaka Unsui
