On life and its vagaries

Martial Haiku

with 6 comments

I have never been fond of martial arts…..but being in the middle of ‘marital’ arts since time without beginning, was curious about them…………. Especially Judo…..


And so once I met a Jujutsu master……


I humbly queried:


What exactly is the theory behind the technique?


He meditated for a second, and then replied, it was in haiku, I have translated it as well as I could, but you know, poetry is what gets lost in translation:


Martial Haiku


“In the purest Jujutsu,

We make them come

Quite unawares!”


I remained speechless for some terrible moments and then tremulously ventured:


Towards us…?


Yes?


I mean…..you meant……… that is……….well anyway……….I meant …….ahem …… towards us?


He closed his eyes to meditate some more and looked at me kindly:


Well, there is that of course, isn’t there!
