Re: New Internal Style of The Wooden Staff

I was just seeing what your view was and whether you had an open mind. Statements like 'if O'Sensei had transcriptions for his staffwork we would have seen them by now' are not from an open mind.

Anyway. He did pass a scroll on with his 'innermost secrets of the staff' in 1957. (secrets not being my wording)

I will find a link and post it if anyone is interested.

I'm happy to be proven wrong about O Sensei having written definitions for his forms. I was under the impression the scroll was O Sensei giving Hikitsuchi simple certification in staff.
