Harmonizing Mind, Technique, and Body in Martial Arts

Learn the essence of achieving harmony in mind, technique, and body as a martial artist.

Minoru Inaba, honored instructor at Meiji Jingu Shiseikan and practitioner under Kuni I Yoshiya of Kashima Shinden Jikishinkage-ryu, alongside his study of Aikido under the Shinto philosopher Chikaaki Ashizu, has devoted himself to exploring Japanese martial arts from both the cultural and practical perspectives. Drawing from years of teaching and research, Inaba Sensei has compiled and organized comprehensive martial arts scrolls: "Shoden," "Chuden," and "Okuden." Through these scrolls, students learn to cultivate the unity of mind, technique, and body required of martial artists.
