    Default ikku-kai training

    Hello,
    In Kensho Furuya's book Kodo: Ancient Ways he has a picture of people in seiza their right arms raised holding something (maybe a bell) with the caption "ikku-kai training". He doesn't seem to elaborate in text and I don't seem to be able to find any references to it. Does anyone know what ikku-kai is? Could you give me some starting points?
    Thank you,
    Len McCoy

    "Ichikukai" ("1-9 Association"), named after the anniversary of Yamaoka Tesshu's death. They're holding a misogi bell, Koichi Tohei popularized that kind of training in Aikido.

    Thank you. Big fan of your blog. Lot's of things on there about Mas Oyama, Jigaro Kano, even Chinese martial arts etc. Even if you are not into aikido it is a great read.
