Re: Awasekagami

In addition to the quote in the OP, "Awasekagami" is a kuden (oral transmission) from Osensei.

I'd heard a couple of teachers who learned directly from the founder using expressions like "try to see your own reflection here" but recently I heard one describe the usage clearly and explain it as a kuden. It's a little different from Hirosawa's usage that I mentioned earlier since the awasekagami reflects oneself, not you reflecting the opponent.
