    Stretching

    No need to rush, be natural. A gentle but consistent effort will generate gradual progress. As you find your flexibility and get to now your body better, you will know how far you can stretch, how much stretching you need to do, how long it takes to generate a certain result, and so on.

    Stretching

    I think you already have a lot of good answers from people here, and I agree that your session of 20 mins, twice pr. day is reasonable. I will add a few comments: 1) I recommend stretching after a hot shower. In the morning and after training. 2) I find slow stretching, with deep breathing to...

    Choosing the right martial art for me?

    Hi there! I am fine, thank you. As Drop Bear's answer reflects, it is a vast question to ask. However, when you say "an art" and "learn the culture and history", it seems like a traditional martial art would be something for you. But again, there are many traditional arts still in practice...

    Another new guy

    Dear Starmada. Welcome to MT! I think you are absolutely right, MA can help you in many ways. I also think Tai Chi is a good choice for you. It is a very grounding and calm way of learning movements and mental focus. It is however very rarely (as far as I have experienced) taught as actual...

    Strength Training for the Martial Arts

    Here's a short explanation of my current method, however, I am constantly evolving my "routine". I put explanation marks on routine because I try to keep it all fluid somewhat. In the mornings I practice 2 different forms of Qi Gong (approx. 30 mins). I find Qi Gong helps to build up internal...

    Legal rights of the Samurai?

    Regarding this question: So you want to be here to be informative, but getting into deep discussions of aspects of the areas you feel you can be informative about is not what you're interested in? No, it's not like that. I recommended the book for the accounts of Samurai actions upon other...

    Legal rights of the Samurai?

    Oh, sorry, I meant Chris - not Simon. Now, really, you cannot judge my ability to be informative upon the duration of my membership within an organization. Nor do you have the right. Nor am I willing to defend that ability here on this thread. Time will have to tell. Please, let's stop this...

    Legal rights of the Samurai?

    I joined MT to be informative on Japanese martial arts, Bushido, meditation, to name a few topic's - and also to spread the word of Jinenkan London's existence. I never really wanted to get deep into discussions about politics, objectivity vs. subjectivity, correct use of the Japanese language...

    Legal rights of the Samurai?

    Also, I recommended the book to refer to Samurai culture and ethics and to the question regarding their right to be judge and jury. These are topic's it describes quite well, from a point of view, obviously. Yamamoto has his opinions but, the stories are objective in their own right, for anybody...

    Legal rights of the Samurai?

    Hi Chris. I have only read one translation, and it was good. I don't follow you regarding the right wing thing and also, I don't understand what you mean about "removed from reality". Yamamoto Tsunetomo is telling stories he has seen or heard about. Am I not correct? Harakiri (kun'yomi -...

    Legal rights of the Samurai?

    Good topic - sorry for arriving a little late. To go back to the original question - and to give "the simple answer": Yes, it was a samurai's responsibility to uphold the law and he had the right to kill. The samurai was also accountable for unfair action, and also for not acting, where acting...
