NOTES:

Sume / Zume ( ) “push or press in (compress in); stuff in or down” but the usage in most of these Budo terms seems to carry the meaning “judgment”or more precisely “[? thing or techniques ?] used as the sole means of judgment”having the same force of meaning that we use in English when we say (combatively) that the opponent was judged and found lacking. Hence the kata 'Zengo zume' means “Judging throughout; judging the entire context; judging his actions before and after” for example. Another example (of the implied meaning of these kata names): 'Ninin zume' “judging two persons; judging between two persons or parties” And also 'Muko zume' “judging the other side [of the thing]”

Chūdōran “Battling in the streets” and other usages of 'Chūdō' ( “Middle of the street / road” ) especially 'Chūdō Shihaki' ( “Middle of road-intention to break the account” ) The mokuroku contains many such references that apparently refer to either public battles (with the sword, i.e.; dueling) or as teaching entries to address the path and course of engagement (managing a combative situation.) That is exactly what 'Chūdō Shihaki' seems to imply: situational management, the express purpose of preventing the development of a victory or other damaging account (public record or otherwise). One can understand why a swordsmanship school might be interested in protecting its reputation and teaching a swordsman to do likewise for himself – avoid troublesome legal reputations, avoid a reputation for ineffective technique or strategy, etc etc.

Comments on the technical structure presented: The first entry group of this document [ is untitled and ] diverges from the standard kata material one might otherwise have expected, proceeding to list the following items:

Chūdō Shihaki Middle of road-intention to break the account, Shitsusha-tō (Hiza-guruma-tō) Knee wheel sword, Inhi (hikitsukare) Drawn and weary, Dōsō Sent at the same time (mutual send off) ” it is as if to suggest a change in direction of intent, as if one had been engaging in public dueling or some other function of actual engagement. The kata sequence itself was probably meant to map out what to expect and how to handle actual engagements, whether as the old custom of public duels or as other combative engagement. The potential meaning of 'Chūdō Shihaki' was addressed in the notes above, but the entire ending sequence of the mokuroku kata group has rather clear implications: “Break the account of his/their victory by defeating them yourself, bringing him to his knees in defeat. The engagement being lengthily you may be drawn and weary but the send off will be mutual.” Mutual send off in such a context refers to parting company (each to their own course) I'd say that this school endeavors to teach the old customs of dueling and sword engagement ... the rest of the technical content demonstrates some number of likely teaching entries that are meant to address actual fencing situations. The final entry of the mokuroku presented demonstrates this most fully: Ichiji Sōden [?] Single line of inheritance / Single character inheritance [?] Kokonoe No Kurai Ninefold powerful position; a position at the imperial palace; a Position at the Court This implies that the singular line of intent [ Ichiji soden; the primary purpose] of learning and wielding the sword is to gain the Ninefold powerful position: governmental authority.
