Understanding that the mystery of existence is directly related to the ki-connectedness between us all can allow us to learn techniques for influencing an audience, fellow-performers, or an opposing swordsman.

Kigaku – - – the study of ki – - – is a part of most traditional Japanese arts – - – comprising a rich body of practice and wisdom: ki-flow, kizeme, working with our ki-body…
Practising these traditional exercises in the sacred dojo space, constructed according to mikkyo principles, is in itself a powerful and revelatory experience, and a making contact with the roots of Suzuki actor training, and of many gendai martial arts.
