As a foreigner, I always thought there was a difference between railroad and ancient arts." The former focuses on studying form and correcting the internal (spiritual). The latter is mainly shot for shooting and killing. I got a comment that went like Although it's a little different from the "fire shooting system and martial shooting system," I think it's my opinion on "rail and ancient art." Would you say railroad in human form and art is a sword and battle technique.
I don't think there is anyone in Japan who can claim such a thing. Japanese, it's a language problem, so I can't say anything. I wish I could say I understand and use it like that.

It is also the acquisition of dangerous techniques related to the dignity of life, so the practitioners required strong self-control ability, and a right mindset, concentration, and healthy thoughts. The relationship between master and disciple is standard, and today there is a trend that upholds one-child inheritance. Modern ancient martial arts while maintaining its essence has been passed down to meet the demands of changing times. In such a sense, it can be said that Kobu art contains strong human formative elements.
