KOSHO RYU KEMPO, To Fall Seven, To Rise Eight is an explanation of my personal experiences with Professor Mitose, what I saw, what I thought of him, what I thought of the lessons as I went through that process, what he must have thought of me. I can only guess at the latter. There were struggles in jumping between two worlds of martial study and there were many obstructions which hindered my own learning and growth.
Kempo is the study of oneself, ridding our need for language or our need to explain in absolutes. It is an understanding, a feeling, a sensitivity, a direction from the heart. I cannot give you a recipe defining the exact measurements of your study to reach “do”. I can give you direction in the manner that Professor Mitose taught me. I can give you roots, and I can give you wings. But in order to fly, you must take the time to listen, think, and most of all, feel from the heart.
