Kabala in Motion: Kata and Pattern Practice in the Traditional Bugei

The term ryuha can be rendered as “branch of the current,” representing the onward flow of a stream of thought; the branches betoken the splitting off that occurs as insights are passed from master to students, generation after generation. Ryuha exist to hand on knowledge with pattern practice (kata) being the core of transmission.
