念Advanced Training Page
Our 念Advanced Training page has info relevant to members and practitioners with ten years of training or more, but everyone is invited to take a look and use it.
Yambayashi training is built on a foundation of self-defense skill: strength, speed, flexibility, endurance, experience and precision tactics. The pressure and risk required to develop these is as indispensable for deep advanced training as it is for practical self-defense.
We build on this foundation.
The Advanced Training page will have notes on mind training, source and reference material, and points of view which are useful but too long and detailed to share in class.
Topics will include:
Introduction to the techniques of Whole-Body Awareness
Unification of the Body
Unification of the Body and Mind
Unification of the Body, Mind and Will
“Return to the source” for Deep Karate – contrast Zen and Nikaya approach
Contemplation of the Body for Martial Artists
The Moral Foundations of Proper Training
Mind/Body/Target Energy Convergence
Exchanges with Sogen Sakiyama Roshi of Okinawa
There are also hundreds of other articles by Jeff Brooks at “Posts” and at the “Links” page, on martial training, values, techniques and culture.
