TRANSLATIONS PAGE



These are amateur translations of all-Japanese language Budo materials, frequently stuff posted to the internet as a web-page. The translations aren't perfect, they are only amateur translations and only for enjoyment, but they're generally good enough to allow one to pick up a thing or two about traditional Japanese budo. I translate the pages due to personal interest, and the ones I like, I post as these amateur translations. Do you have a Budo related all-Japanese web page you'd like to know what it says? Email me the address and I will review it, if it meets our interests then maybe I will translate it and post it to my translation pages here? Don't expect me to respond, but check back now and then, and maybe you'll get lucky (I do this sort of thing all the time.) DO NOT SWAMP ME WITH USELESS EMAILS PLEASE: jtweymo@hotmail.com





THE MASTERS SCROLLS-- Our American Federation of Jujutsu dedicated web-page for the various DENSHO and other documental materials from a variety of traditional Jujutsu and Budo schools. Useful content, many are from the late 1700's and 1800's.



Honjo Budo No Ron “Our Country's Budo Theories” -- this is some of the best material I've ever seen, it covers all the essential theories and origins of traditional Japanese budo, the real stuff that is seldom ever received by Westerners. It was posted specifically for Westerners in relationship to the Iraqi-American wars, but they offered no translation of the document. I happened upon it and did a translation (boy was I pleased when I did, it's chock full of good material.) The teachings referred to in the Honjo budo no ron have been referred to by many Japanese sensei addressing American and Western audiences, but this material is actually what they were referring to in those addresses. So it's sort of like finally getting a copy of what they were actually referring to. Far as I can tell, it is a series of excerpts from a thesis done on the traditional Theories of Budo, which come from certain codified texts and traditions, Shinto-Buddhist doctrines and references are prolific throughout the document, I had some trouble with these terms and references because they were being used in a Budo specific context and so some of the material there was a little obscure to say the least. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.



Shibukawa Ichi Ryu, Jujutsu -- this is a web-page mokuroku of the koryu Shibukawa Ichi Ryu jujutsu school, a very good and traditional school of Japanese jujutsu. It has a very interesting structure and content, which displays some relevant connection to the jujutsu of the Takagi and Kukishin schools (sharing some similarity in nomenclature and etc.)



Hoten ryu -- a web-page mokuroku of koryu bujutsu , a very good and traditional school of Japanese sogo budo. It also has a very interesting structure and content.



Tenshin Koryu Kenpo -- a web-page mokuroku of koryu jujutsu , another good and traditional school of Japanese jujutsu. It also has a very interesting structure and content.



Juku Private Budo School -- another web-page of koryu budo. Pretty good content and interesting background info.



Hontai Yoshin Takagi Ryu -- another web-page mokuroku of koryu(?) budo. Good example of Takagi school structure and content.



Shingyoto ryu -- another web-page mokuroku, this time of koryu(?) kenjutsu school. Has a sub-listing of Jujutsu techniques (looks like it's related to Takagi-kukishinden jujutsu?) Also having a very interesting structure and content.



Jujutsu Ryuha Listing -- a web-page of many many Japanese Jujutsu schools (Kanji and Romaji, to the best of my ability.) Also very interesting for content.



Shinden Yoshin Ryu, Jujutsu-- Our web-page for the mokuroku and other materials of our school. Useful content. Not Koryu, strictly Gendai.
