"The techniques are really a vessel for carrying all the things that are budo..." Most books about martial arts (budo) focus on techniques, although some tell the history, and a few wax philosophical. It is rare indeed to discover a book that so fluently combines all this within the broader context of culture and lifestyle, and does so in such a humble, engaging, and accessible way. "Budo Bum Anthology" is a book that answers not so much "how" or "what" as it does "why?" Why call budo teachers "sensei"? Why do we bow? Why kata? Why keep training? Peter Boylan, aka the Budo Bum, has achieved high rank in several martial arts — judo, iaido, jodo, and more—spending decades immersed within budo, straddling the worlds and cultures of Japan and America, and translating between them. In these essays, the reader is invited to walk alongside a quiet man who thinks deeply about the worlds in which budo was created and is practiced, and who brings the meaning of "all the things that are budo" into our daily lives. CONTENTS Introduction Getting Started Do you have to study in Japan to understand budo? Etiquette: Form and sincerity in budo Sensei, Kyoshi, Hanshi, and Shihan: budo titles and how (not) to use them Different ranks in martial arts? Zanshin Budo Do versus Jutsu (道対術) What kata isn’t Trust in the dojo Training Training, motivation, and counting training time in decades instead of years The most effective martial art The dojo as the world: learning to deal with violence and power Budo and responsibility Investing in failure The spirit of learning Training hard and training well are not the same thing When it comes to training, fast is slow and slow is fast Getting out of the comfort zone There are no advanced techniques Essentials The most essential principles in budo: Structure The most essential principles in budo: Spacing The most essential principles in budo: Timing Philosophy The only things I teach are how to walk and how to breathe Budo expectations and realities: understanding the limits of what we study Will budo training make me a better person? Budo as a “professional skill” and professionalism in budo Budo training and budo philosophy How to adapt an art form to fit you Is kata too rigid and mechanical?
