“The Zen of Budoshin Jujutsu™
Jujutsu is a lifetime Goal.
Through life, techniques will constantly improve either physically or mentally in daily practice. “Train your heart out, refining your technique: Use the One to strike the Many”.
First know yourself, and then others.

To know others is perceptive. To know yourself is wise. Knowing yourself and your opponent will pave the path to victory. Jujutsu is not to hurt, but is one of the ways through which life opens its secret to us. We can see through others only when we can see through ourselves and jujutsu is a step toward knowing yourself.
Rather than physical technique, mental technique.
Technique does not make the jujutsuan, the jujutsuan makes the technique. “Progress comes to those who train and train; reliance on secret techniques will get you nowhere.”
Never think that jujutsu is practiced only in the dojo.
The world is your dojo. A true jujutsuan trains daily spiritually when not training physically.
Unawareness and neglect cause misfortune.
Most accidents in life are caused by a lack of awareness, utter laziness and boredom. In jujutsu, you must always be alert and aware to avoid danger to yourself or others. Exercise awareness also beyond the dojo floor. “Don’t do anything that is useless.”
Always remember jujutsu starts and ends with respect.
One must have respect for the teaching, respect for one’s fellow trainees, and respect and reverence for life. Respect is one of the qualities that distinguishes a human being from a savage animal.
Failure is the key to success; each mistake teaches us something.
To abandon your ego on the dojo floor will teach you humility through practice. If your ego wills you to win, then you will surely lose. “Empty your tea cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.”
Understand the positive / negative qualities in everything.
In jujutsu not every technique will be positive or negative. To understand both its qualities will benefit your training. Do not neglect the techniques that are negative and do not overpractice the ones that are positive, but keep them balanced.
Embrace compassion.
Even the best physical technique cannot defeat compassion.” –The Zen of Budoshin Jujutsu™


About pwl

I am a Systems Scientist with a Specialty in Systems Analysis and Computer Science and Neuro Linguistic Programming. I write software. I consult with large and small corporations on a variety of technical fields: finance, banking, insurance, construction, engineering, simulations, modeling, electronics, product design, systems integration, and much more. I am a writer. I am an atheist/anti-theist or "bright" - no invisible friends for me. You are free to be or "believe" what you want as long as you don't harm anyone in your actions in accordance with the non-aggression principle. I promote the natural human desire to freely trade with others and to relate with others in the context of the non-aggression principle and voluntary society with spontaneous order. I'm working to rebalance my body through various forms of body weight strength training such as hot yoga, calisthenics, in addition to free weights and old school strength training; and nutrition of course. I practice meditation of observing one's own breath without trying to change its rythym, which is something one can practice whatever one is doing in life (or whatever life is doing to one). I'm comitted to excellence and life long learning. If I can bring a smile to your face; if I can brighten your day; if I can learn from you; if I can teach you; if I can freely trade with you; if I can make a positive difference in your life; these are actions of success that I value. Live long and prosper.
