    Are we referring to books that quote Awa or books by Awa?
  2. Agreed. Back to the topic,...

    Agreed.

    Back to the topic, meditation/martial arts:

    Someday somebody around here is going to offer to teach a very short but wide-ranging course (three or four sessions) on the Teachings of...
  3. I always thought of the relationship as a cargo...

    I always thought of the relationship as a cargo cult, ie Christianity is a cargo cult of Judaism.

    Once again, interesting what you've pointed out here, this blood thing. Yep.
  4. ummm, it's in the Book of Mark. That makes it...

    ummm, it's in the Book of Mark. That makes it more perplexing, not less. A good Jewish boy said that? I guess so.
  5. You're absolutely right. Obviously; it never...

    You're absolutely right. Obviously; it never even occurred to me whilst I was writing what I just wrote. Then I checked out the New Testament and I can't find that JC said what I said he said. ...

    The Last Supper was either a Passover seder or the night before the Passover seder, the year where the Priests at the Big Temple got JC arrested for performing miracles on Shabbos (Sabbath;...

    A little Japanese superhero guy; THAT Tenchi, no doubt. Pop culture. Comic books.

    Probably somebody could write a better book, but near as I can tell Stevens's Zen Bow Zen Arrow is the only book in English about Awa Kenzo. If there are any more out there, I'd love to find them...

    Thank you.

    That's a great essay. I've read it a few times, since you wrote it a few days ago; to give it a chance to digest. It venerates the past, appropriately, whilst bringing the teachings...

    Would you be so kind as to write out in Roma Ji how to say that phrase for "having your mind right"= "making your inner intention correct"

    yomu koto ga dekimasen.

    I'd sure appreciate it. Dozo.

    A lot of the quotes were familiar to me; then I realized I had read them on Earl Hartman's pages from the dojo in Emeryville. You can learn a lot from reading that syllabus front to back.

    I...
  13. I got to thinking about what Earl Hartman said,...

    I got to thinking about what Earl Hartman said, in reference to Awa Kenzo, and it occurred to me that Awa Kenzo was nearly a hundred years ago. So I wrote a few pages about that; it's a GoogleDoc:

  14. Like Earl Hartman just said, if I want to play...

    Like Earl Hartman just said, if I want to play Mozart's Clarinet Quintet I better get a clarinet.

    Not a tuba.

    Not to differ with Earl Hartman by any means (a fifth dan archer) but any archer...

    Adrenalin/stress training

    The second link was (at least for me) the same as the first; but anyway, I see what you mean. The first few seconds of the video show the milieu of realistic encounter, esp the Marine surprised from...

    adrenalin stress training

    How does, say, the Marine Corps accomplish what this thread is calling adrenalin/stress training, ie where the attack is real enough to evoke the adrenalin and stress in the real world?

    the post about shooting archery and meditation was by Richard Katz
  18. shooting; and meditation

    shooting and meditation, which came first, chicken and egg, but don't get me/us started. (reply to "this isn't the right forum supra)

    so what happened was that for days after I wrote that post,...
  19. Archery: Right Hand, Right Angle

    from Richard Katz (his full name; novice e-budo member)

    I got so interested in reading the continuation of the Herrigel opera (soap supra, about Awa Kenzo and his counterfeit interpretation by the...

  21. Hard to debunk

    It's really hard to debunk ANY myth, or fable, or urban legend. Herr Herrigel got the myth of archery-as-zen started, and it's had a good run ever since. I just the other day found the five year...
