Kyu: To Study, or Seek
Shin: The Cosmic Nucleul Principal ( precise translation impossible ) . All motion in the universe maybe resolved basically, to a series of circular and semi-circular actions. This only by obeying this fundamental principal of motion: avoiding stiff, angular stances, or postures, that we can achieve the best Judo - Aikido - Kendo - Karate.
The three precepts of KyuShinDo are as follows:
BANBUTSU RUTEN: All things existent in the universe are in a constant state of flux.
RITSU DO: This motion is rhythmic and flowing.
CHOWA: All things work and flow in perfect harmony and accord.
The human body naturally falls into this ordered state, when we perform physical techniques.
We study not only the movement alone, but seek the most basic principals behind the action.
One cannot make perfect separation of the spiritual and physical without death resulting through the basic idea of physical application, the spiritual import of the theory should follow naturally.
Please regard this very brief explanation, as you would the caption of an illustration, both requiring direct experience for complete understanding.
DO: Way, or Path.
G Mayo 10th dan - founder - KyuShinDo or BullShinDo ?It is sad to see that, despite the facts, the MayoShinDo group still claim on their website Mayo site - Mr Mayo is the ``Founder of KyuShinDo``.
Whilst such crass idiotic claims do little for the memory of Mr Mayo or the integrity of the Mayo group, it is an insult to the memory of our teacher Kenshiro Abbe Sensei 8th dan, a man who was a true budo legend.
The Mayo group make much of a letter acknowledging a one off meeting with Abbe Sensei by Mr Mayo - Mrs Teresa Reeve the widow of Bill Reeve Sensei ( personal aide to Abbe Sensei )states that she clearly recalls that her husband reluctantly typed the letter after advising Abbe Sensei against sending a personal letter to such a man as Mr Mayo. It would appear that Bill Reeve Sensei was a very perceptive man.
