Dennis Bartram writes about Amatsu and tensegrity. Amatsu began when Three Westerners, Dennis Bartram, Christopher Roworth and William Doolan studied with Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi PhD in 1995. He granted them full teaching rights of the ancient school of Hi Chi Bu Ku Goshin Jutsu. In this treatise, Bartram explicates Amatsu by drawing on specific concepts of tensegrity, citing Levin, Fuller and others. He cites Levin’s view that the body is a tensegrity truss system with tension members provided by a matrix of connective tissues, ligaments, muscles, blood vessels, nerves and fascia. In this model, the bones are considered as spacers, not weight bearers along with incompressible fluids giving shape and form to a soft tissue entity. Bartram relates this back to Hatsumi Sensei's teachings and the principle of Gairon utilising the interconnectedness of all the biological structures of our bodies. "In the human body, there are many anatomical vulnerable sites where a small force can exert considerable damage, even death. In budo warrior craft, these points were studied to gain victory in a fight situation. Even when a person wears armour, vulnerable places are left exposed at the expense of movement. Hatsumi teaches the vulnerability of these critical points in the body in his lessons on Budo. In Japanese, they are called Kyusho and the Kanji or Japanese ideogram for the word critical is interpreted as meaning danger or opportunity. In the medicine Hatsumi taught us, he demonstrated the potential opportunity for these Kyusho to bring about wellness in the body. By observing motion of a person as they walk he can determine which tensegrity lines of the soft tissues are compromised. On evaluation, our Orthopaedic ests and muscle tests verify these findings in a clinical setting. By applying, a pressure to the compromised Kyusho with an omni directional flexibility that is delivered by his bodies Tai Jutsu, (Natural Movement) he releases the critical point. This pressure does not act locally on the tissue or follow a specific anatomical route along muscles or fascia. It follows to the depth of the tissue change and can act in a non-linear dynamic way that matches the tension/compression changes to the damaged tissue. This is brought about by the ability to palpate deeply into tissue without force feedback being a resistant force." Links: http://www.amatsu.co.uk/.

TAI JUTSU – Natural Movement Heritage
Hatsumi Sensei began our instruction in Amatsu principles by explaining twoimportant fundamental concepts. He explained that the study of Gairon and Tai Jutsuwere connected and vital to our ability to receive his teaching. Without understandingthese principles, we could not continue.Gairon is the underpinning or foundation of Amatsu. He describes this essence assensing the interconnectedness of all things in the universe. Gairon also interprets asseeing the whole picture and its thread in any given situation.“Gaia the Greek goddess of the earth.” “The relationship between the biosphere and Gaia is like that between your body and you. The biosphere isthe three dimensional geographic region where living organisms exist. Gaia isthe super organism composed of all life tightly coupled with the air, the oceansand the surface locks.” Lovelock, J. GAIA A New look at life on Earth.Precafe PXITai Jutsu is more than just a skill or body movement, it is a feeling, an essence bornfrom nature.He explained to us that without Tai Jutsu (Natural Movement), then nothing wouldexist in the universe. This applies to weather patterns, water flow, opening of flowersand human development.The Hichi Buko Goshin Jutsu tradition holds the secret of the opening of flowers, thevery essence of life on our planet.Victor Schauberger a natural scientist describes it in the following way:“Were water actually what hydrologist deem it to be – a chemically-inertsubstance-then a long time ago there would already have been no water and nolife on this Earth. I regard water as the blood of the Earth. Its internal process, while not identical to that of our blood, is nonetheless very similar. Itis this process that gives water its movement. I would compare this inner motion, the origin of all possible physical movement, to that of a blossomingflower bud. As it unfolds, it creates a vortex-like crown of petals, in the centreand at the end of which stands the true secret of motion-life in statu nascendi,in the form of a concentration of movement”.

Hi Chi Buko Goshin Jutsu
The school of the secret of the opening flower. The secret of the opening flower is theinterplay of nature’s forces of compression and tension in a state of equilibrium. Theexpression of the opening of the flower is the bias of the dynamic power of tensionfrom within and the interplay of compression from without, giving form to the flower.In the coming into being as form, the tension inside the flower overcomes thecompression of gravity and external force keeping it as a bud. As with all threedimensional form being part of the Kyu Jutsu cycle of 50/50 balance (a concept of  balance between insubstantial and substantial form existing as one entity.) Being inform is the footprint of its past and the precursor of its eventual degeneration. This isthe Ko/Ku cycle of birth/death creation and destruction of earthly form.Victor Schauberger a natural scientist in the 1930’s describes this form from a wateryorigin as our very metamorphis, the coming into being of form.The form that evolves from the metamorphis of water is built from its liquid prestressintelligence. Biological structures come into form from a liquid or water origin with a prestress intelligence to withstand the stresses of compression and tension. As life onearth, this can manifest as life in air with gravity or underwater depending on itsecological circumstances.This ease of evolvement in nature follows the concept of doing more with less knownas “ephemerialisation”. From these origins, any evolvement can be explained throughthe science now known as Biotensegrity.Dr. Stephen Levin’s research in Biotensegrity holds the view that the body is atensegrity truss system with tension members provided by a matrix of connectivetissues, ligaments, muscles, blood vessels, nerves and fascia.In this model, the bones are considered as spacers, not weight bearers along withincompressible fluids giving shape and form to a soft tissue entity.In keeping with this theory of the body being a soft tissue continuum, Hatsumi Senseidemonstrated to us the concept of a one point therapeutic protocol. This was possible because of the principle of Gairon utilising the interconnectedness of all the biologicalstructures of our bodies.“The continuity or global interconnectedness of the living matrix is essentialto the understanding of the body and the role of energetics in health anddisease”. Oschman, J. Energy Medicine (P232)He taught us that to apply pressure on one point affected all parts and explained thatwith the body movement “Tai Jutsu” you were able to follow the torsional directionsof vulnerable or damaged tissue. He explained that these points of interaction wereknown as Kyusho, where change at one point had a critical effect on the whole.Water in its structured form is enclosed in the body in fascial compartments. It helpsto provide shock absorption and holds shape of a tissue. The different densities of liquids contribute to their form as either a sol or gel.
