Kuzushi 崩し

Published by at 9:05 am under Training in Japan

The work Kuzushi is often translated as take the balance. If you look at the kanji (which I have so helpfully included) it is a verb which means to collapse or to destroy.

If you take someones balance they will take a step and escape. ?If you however focus on destroying their kamae then you have effectively taken away power and ability to counter your intentions. ?I am sure I will have to visit more on the specifics of this as I figure them out further. ?So until then.

Your life is on the line, practise well.
