Genshin Ki Dojo

 

 

 

Genshin Ki Dojo Teaches the philosophical aspects that Martial sports schools and franchises are lacking. Most Martial sports schools have contracts, teach flying kicks, ineffective techniques, do tournaments or cage fighting. Others train in a mixture of martial sports and not intellectually. Martial arts schools hold to traditions by keeping the instructor integrity. Students practice diligently for their rank and they are taught effective techniques that work in real encounters. Above all, the Dojo is non-sports oriented for the proper intellectual/spiritual training in a 50/50 balance.  The 50/50 balance eliminates any chance for an out of control ego. This is the true foundation for Martial arts training.

 

The 50/50 balance that must be maintained for proper growth in any martial art is 50% physical technique and 50% intellectual/spiritual. In Martial Sports schools the balance is 50% physical (mostly flying kicks, ineffective techniques or thug fighting clubs) 47% focused on tournaments or cage fighting and 3% intellectual. This results in pugnacious and egotistical students that seek confrontations because the mind has developed narcissistic and psychopathic attributes. They have limited discipline and self control due to the way they have been trained. Unfortunately, all Martial Sportist develop these traits. 

The improper training involves trying to prove to others (the world) how much better they are then them by preparing for tournaments and cage matches. The enlarged ego then is easily enraged when someone may disagree with them about anything. This results in the competitive fighting nature to expose itself on the street in real encounters which will result in either the Martial Sportist hurting someone with no precident or the Martial Sportist being shot or stabbed to death by the person they confront. The Martial Sportist can not let something go as that competitive nature with the ego does not allow for it. Hence, the way they have been trained. They are trained in the opposite of humility, so they react that way.

 

In a Martial Arts school, the student is trained properly in a 50% physical (only effective techniques) and 50% intellectual/spiritual method. Training in the proper method produces benevolent, humble, and knowledgable students that can walk away from a confrontation without feeling that they need to prove something. The students are spiritually enlightened and would only use the self defense they have learned as a last resort. They have much discipline and patience and it shows in their every action in and out of the Dojo. Additional training in a Martial Arts school consists of but is not limited to: Meditation (Zazen), philosophy, Ki (Chi) energy cultivation and understanding, focus (kimi) skills, reading & terminology, Iron palm training, advanced sparring or more time honing your self defense waza.

 

I certainly did not intend for this website to imply that Sports are bad in any way. If my incisive comments offend anyone, I apologize. However, this 50/50 balance is incontrovertible in the Martial Arts world. Since Martial Sports is so prevalent today, I want to convey to the public that although it is prevalent, it is an impediment to anyone who seeks the true meaning of the Martial Arts.

 

Most of the instructors at the Martial sports franchises that you see today received their instructor status from these special black belt clubs. The plan was to mass produce black belts hoping that 1 out of 10 will open a school.. Thus, increasing the amount of schools in the franchise and of course increasing the profits. These special black belt clubs are a disgrace to all Traditional Martial artists who have studied and trained diligently for their rank. In this matter, I always like to refer back to an old Chinese Proverb.

 


"When the blind lead the blind,
  they both fall off the cliff!"

 

If you look at it through another perspective, it becomes much clearer. Student "A" goes to college, studies hard for 8 years and receives a PhD in his field of study. Student "B" goes to a different college that offers a program that he can't refuse, and for a certian fee he receives a PhD in his field in only a years time. Now for the catch. They are both called Doctors. If you knew of their background, which Doctor would you want to go to?

 


"For the uncontrolled there is no wisdom, nor for the uncontrolled is there the power of concentration; and for him without concentration there is no peace. And for the unpeaceful how can there be happiness?"

 

"In the beginning study of any combative Martial Art, proper motivation is crucial. Without the proper frame of mind, continuous exposure to fighting techniques can lead to ruin instead of self-development. The skills of self protection, which should provide a feeling of inner peace and security for the Martial Artist, so often develop without a balance in the personality and lead the lesser Martial Artist into warped realms of unceasing conflict and competition which eventually consume him.
