- What I truly learned is humility and gratitude.

Re: Keisho Leary and California Tendai Monastery

I want to say that the Tendai North America district has about a dozen Soryo and about the same amount of Doshu.

Re: Western Gyo, Eastern Gyo in Tendai

Welcome back to Earth and very well done!

You have been fortunate enough to have many training experiences before attending the gyo you just completed. What did you learn from this gyo?

Togakure Ryu has a connection to Tendai-shu. They say that the founder of Togakure Ryu was trained by So-O who is also credited with st...

The first category has to do with a particular kind of martial arts practice. Stephen K. Hayes established this precedent with his Blue Lotus Assembly, which has since alte...
