The Reason for this Project
This is an ongoing project that originally was an updated Golden Sage Martial Arts Dojo Kata Manual with illustrations to demonstrate what I currently teach with Alicia Karnes, Sandan, Sensei Ni at our martial art school.
The Bushidokan Federation is an accumulation of many schools and Dojos that are autonomous. Below fifth degree black belt there are no Bushidokan Federation Black Belt exams. There is no official Bushidokan Federation Kata or kata manual that I am aware of. With this manual I am passing on is how I teach Dan Zan Ryu basic kata and the flavor of Prof. LaGue’s DZR Zenyo Bujutsu as I was taught.
As a Professor with the Bushidokan International Federation it is an honor and a duty to serve our Sensei. As a Bushidokan Federation Professor it is our mission to promote and preserve Prof. Okazaki’s Dan Zan Ryu and Prof. Herb LaGue’s DZR Zenyo Bujutsu.
As every Sensei or Black Belt was not able to attend the same classes at the Bushidokan from years between 1983 to 2000 I have the need to share these arts that meant so much to me and others. I spent many years promoting and teaching others the arts in this manual to new and advanced students. I miss the opportunity to travel and personally teach these arts and I look for ways that I can do more. I share this manual to help Senseis to use as they find fit.
Limited Professor Travel to Serve Senseis
Over the years, before our Bushidokan Federation, some of us traveled to many AJJF Federation events to support the Dojos and the AJJF Federation. Lessons learned from these commitments and self-sacrifice were greatly rewarded with the Arts, Ohana and the Kokua shared between Kyu ranks, black belts, Senseis and the Professor’s. These experiences continue to form the best parts of who I am.
Times and financial conditions have changed from when credit was cheap and now traveling to other parts of the USA for martial art classes or events is no longer possible for many of us. Some students and teachers call this Jujitsu poor. Many of us have only limited time and resources that are directed to keeping our family financially secure and school or Dojo open. I hope that this Part 1 and Part 2 manual will help pass the arts of Dan Zan Ryu and DZR Zenyo Bujutsu on far into the future.
New Teaching Tools
With this manual I hope to serve the Sensei. I hope that it fulfills a need to remind us of arts that we missed or forgot so that we may reintroduce these arts when needed. I also use self-created videos for each rank for our school’s rank guidelines along with part 1 of this manual to assist our green belts students to review during the week while working on their notebooks before class time.
In Kokua and Ohana-Prof. Bob Karnes and Alicia Karnes, Sensei Ni Golden Sage Martial Arts 2-24-2020
I get copies made. I put the 230 B&W pages with over 1,300 illustrations including chapter dividers in a hole punched, plastic spiral bound manual produced at my home.
First send me the money through pay pal or a check through the mail with the name and the e-mail address of the Black Belt (if it is you fill out the certificate)
As this is normally only available through Sensei if you send this as an e-mail to your Black Belt they send me an e-mail and I mail it to them
