Letteralmente la parola giapponese kata significa forma br br Quanto vasto sia per noi occidentali il dominio di applicazione di questo concetto lo testimonia il suo irrompere dalle altezze della metafisica in cui primariamente dai Greci fu descritto nella vita di tutti i giorni in cui anche all uomo della strada evidente quanto il potere sia in rapporto con l in formazione br br In una societ e una cultura tradizionali come quella giapponese tuttavia la forma non soltanto la nozione di contorno di aspetto esteriore di qualcosa che sta di fronte oggetto che qui in Occidente si impadronita del reale astratizzandolo svuotandolo in una progressione di potenza che l ha vista diventare successivamente a priori kantiano forma di denaro in formatica br br Tokitsu propone questa sintetica definizione di kata sequenza composta da gesti formalizzati e codificati sottesa da uno stato di spirito orientato verso la realizzazione della Via do br br La nozione orientale tradizionale di forma quindi non oggettiva ma soggettiva e coincide sostanzialmente con la nozione di rito nella sua accezione etimologica di azione giusta gesto appropriato br br La nozione giapponese di forma ha perci sempre posseduto la capacit di fare da cerniera tra essere e divenire tecnica e spontaneit stilema e percezione estetica tradizione e modernizzazione esteriorit sociale e interiorit privata ammesso che quest ultimo concetto possa essere utilizzato per una societ tradizionale br br Percorrendo in lungo e in largo la storia del Giappone e scavando in profondit filoni specifici come la figura del Maestro di spada Yamaoka Tesshu la chiusura su se stesso del Giappone tra i primi del e il data di arrivo della flotta americana del commodoro Perry nella baia di Tokyo il rapporto tra la temporalit intrinseca del kata e la morte esemplificato attraverso un esame dello Hagakure il codice segreto dei samurai le figure degli scrittori Yukio Mishima Mori Ogai ecc Tokitsu rintraccia l emergere e lo strutturarsi della nozione di kata a un tempo filosofia tecnica insegnamento obiettivo e mezzo che illumina tutti i percorsi che la cultura tradizionale del popolo giapponese sono legati all idea della ricerca della perfezione nel quadro di una tensione verso l autorealizzazione personale, Miyamoto Musashi who lived in Japan in the fifteenth century was a renowned samurai warrior He has become a martial arts icon known not just as an undefeated dueler but also as a master of battlefield strategy Kenji Tokitsu turns a critical eye on Musashi s life and writings separating fact from fiction and giving a clear picture of the man behind the myth br br Musashi s best known work i The Book of Five Rings i provides timeless insight into the nature of conflict Tokitsu translates and provides extensive commentary on that popular work as well as three other short texts on strategy that were written before it and a longer later work entitled The Way to Be Followed Alone Tokitsu is a thoughtful and informed guide putting the historical and philosophical aspects of the text into context and illuminating the etymological nuances of particular Japanese words and phrases As a modern martial artist and a scholar Tokitsu provides a view of Musashi s life and ideas that is accessible and relevant to today s readers and martial arts students, While technical prowess and physical power are essential characteristics of a martial artist true mastery of the art comes by cultivating one s inner strength Here Kenji Tokitsu an authority on Japanese and Chinese combat arts and a respected karate teacher shows how cultivating ki life force and understanding the principles of budo the martial path of self development can make training in martial arts more meaningful effective

t j ai pratiqu avec passion les arts martiaux de combat Jeune d bordant d nergie je me suis totalement investi dans le d veloppement de ma force phusique et le perfectionnement des techniques de combat br br Cependant arriv la ma trise de ces techniques j ai pris conscience qu une dimension fondamentale manquait ma pratique la dur e La force physique pure n a qu un temps br br Ma r flexion sur le sens des arts martiaux et de ce que signifie bien vivre aujourd hui s est alors orient e vers la recherche du Ki J ai entrepris un travail interne sur mon corps et int gr cette nouvelle dimension techniques de combat br br Le Ki est une notion m connue en Occident Cet ouvrage repr sente une premi re somme du savoir th orique ainsi que des enseignements issus de la pratique
