kendoo 剣道 Kendo - 天狗 Tengu and The Way of the Sword

What is the connection between the sword and Daruma ?
During the Edo period, many "WAYS" were developed, based on the principles of Zen and practised by the samurai, and "The Way of the Warrior" (Bushido) was of course one of them. One aspect of Bushido is "The Way of the Sword" (Kendo) and the "Way of the Bow" (Kyuudo).

karasu to Tengu 烏と天狗 Crow and Tengu
『剣道独稽古』の最後は、烏と天狗による「手留」と「乱勝」の構えを示した絵図を紹介する。
Introducing two postures with a Tengu as partner.



まるで覆面レスラーのようであるが、足の爪だけは烏のようになっていて、地面を掴むように踏むのは武術の基本であり、奥義でもある。



剣の構えが実に古流らしくていい。肘の左右への張りも見事である。

Tengu no hijutstu 天狗の秘術 Secret Teachings of Tengu
Once upon a time
at the home of 佐藤松吉 Sato Matsukichi there lived a young warrior called 理八 Rihachi.
The family was very poor and Rihachi was sent to work for the rich family of 小田 Oda in 館矢間村 Tateyamamura. From there he could take part in the Kendo training of 高木与惣兵衛 Takagi Yosoemon at the local training hall.
After three years, when Rihachi was 20 years old, there was no other student who could beat him. Yet the teacher did not promote him. Finally Rihachi understood he was not yet ready, pulled himself together and started anew to practise alone at a wild place called 万騎の峰, which the locals called "Tengu no Miya" 天狗の宮 "Palace of the Tengu".
On the mountain path there were dangerous wolves on the road and beautiful ladies trying to distract him and even severed human heads were flying around - but despite all these terrible things, Rihachi was undisturbed and continued his practise.
Finally on the 107th night at midnight the Tenug showed up and took him to the 天狗の角力場 Training place of the Tengu, where he was shown how to fly in space.
Later Rihachi himself was venerated as a 天狗尊 Tengu in the village and he opened a training hall for martial arts.
He became very famous and won many official competitions and got the name Riken 飛剣 "flying sword".
