Bujinkan New York Dojo

Ikken Hasso (一拳八相)

One fist, eight aspects. While I was visiting Japan to train, Hatsumi-sensei introduced the class to this Shinden Fudo Ryu (神傳不動流) concept. He showed how one fist became many fists and how one strike flowed into many. His relaxed movements flowed without strength... and almost without thought. Uke threw a punch and Hastumi-sensei flowed and adapted with strikes of his own.
