THE BODY AS A SWORD
Yawara is an ancient martial art that traces its history
through the Japanese Bushi to the Shaolin Temple of
ancient China.
Yawara is characterized by simple direct techniques that
usually incapacitate an opponent in one simple powerful
movement. Yawara attacks the fundamental structure of
the body, so Yawara techniques are very difficult to
counter. Yawara was brought to America in 1903 by
Frank Matsuyama. Matsuyama invented the Yawara
stick in 1948 and instructed thousands of police officers
nationwide in its use. Denver police officer Frank
Goody studied with Matsuyama until the laters' death in
1956. Frank Goody taught Yawara at his school, the
American Budo College, until his death.
This rare martial art is revealed to a world wide
audience for the first time. Through these pages you
will learn some of the principles of movement that
allow the use of various weapons and open hands with
equal ease. You will learn the basic principles of energy
activation and balancing. Finally, instructional
resources are offered for those who wish to continue
their training in Yawara.
