BUDOKAN Martial Arts

The science of motion.

A question I often get is in regard to the attacker or the uke… Is’nt he just cooperating? Is that really possible? Is that stuff for real?

First you need to thoroughly go into what is a uke and what is ukemi.

Second you must move your mind beyond the blinders of the so called “practical” and enter into the egoless never ending study of the intrinsic.

This understanding extends to all.
