Ideological Elasticity: Enduring Form and Changing Function in the Japanese Martial Tradition

By John Donohue, Ph.D.




Ideological Elasticity: Enduring Form and Changing Function in the Japanese Martial Tradition

The author comments on the ideological complex surrounding training in the Japanese martial traditions. These systems, while remaining relatively uniform through time, have, in fact, been subject to considerable philosophical interpretation and emphasis. Why many practice martial artists has little to do with the essential nature of these arts.
