Information about the practice

"Rei" is a form of greeting or appreciation

It represents having a sense of respect for others will observing the right attitude one's own heart. It expresses the heart and gives "label" but this label is not just an imitation of forms of politeness. It is indeed important to implement this label with its heart. The label during training is that our ancestors have done as designs (projects) that are deeply connected with our formation as a human being. Without weakness, but without exaggeration, salvation has its traditional magnificence. Not only in the place of training, the fact storing his shoes, pay attention to the words we use, etc., that is the meaning of the label (lit.: "the law of thanks"). It all starts with "Rei" and everything ends with "Rei".

About the practice

The drive is not only learn techniques, because it is also important to turn the drive way that builds the body and soul. This partner that highlights my flaws is that person who allows me to correct myself. The perceiver by his own immaturity, that one stands by it in modesty. And his technique will progress naturally, and "polishing" will be the same.

About the training

The fulfillment of flower arrangement (ikebana), of Budo, etc. does not say "learn" but "Keiko" (Train). This word literally means "consider the former." That is to say that "without allowing weeds to grow", "Keiko" is the "light of current art *" by which we must pay tribute to the "family" of all our predecessors day after day and night after night, by their heart, with skill and devotion, often risking their lives, have preserved this art.
