Musubi no ken?

Is there a musubi no ken? If so, what are the movements?

Thanks,
Sy

Re: Musubi no ken?

Dear Sy,
I do not understanding your question.

I Thought "musubi no ken" should mean to be a unity with your ken. If so there is no special mvement for that. It does only mean, if you practice hard, seriously, and with some luck, your sword will no longer be a tool, but a part of yourself. That would result in much smoother and more natural movements in whatever you do, nothing special.

There is an anecdote to describe this, which I recall like that:
Student (S): "Sensei, how long does it take to become a master with the sword?"
Teacher (T): "Do your 1000 suburi and your basic kata every day, and in one year, we will talk again."
1 year later ..
S: "Master, how far did I get to become a master?"
T: "How does your sword feel like?"
S: "Oh, pretty good, only a few movements do not work every time."
T: "Do your 1000 suburi and your basic kata every day, and in one year, we will talk again."
1 year later ..
S: "Master, how far did I get to become a master?"
T: "How does your sword feel like?"
S: "Very good, it sounds good, and moves smooth."
T: "Do your 1000 suburi and your basic kata every day, and in one year, we will talk again."
...
some years later ..
S: "Master, how far did I get to become a master?"
T: "How does your sword feel like?"
S: "Excellent, it nearly does all the movements on its own."
T: "Do your 1000 suburi and your basic kata every day, and in one year, we will talk again."
...
some years later ..
S: "Master, how far did I get to become a master?"
T: "How does your sword feel like?"
S: "Which sword, master?"
T: "Now you got it. You are close to becoming a master."

Best regards Dirk
