Ukemi does not refer to the ‘we must avoid any injuries!’ feeling Judo and Aikido. You should understand it as a body

which receives

and

remains

standing,

a

Ukemi

of

self

protection. In other words, it is possible to grasp the true nature of Ukemi. Ukemi are self defence. It is important to purse the essence of Ukemi by examining the natural form of true combat, where self protection includes both evasive counters and methods of attack. Kuhen no kata is a name for an infinite, natural form, and could probably be called natural Ukemi taihen jutsu for the sake of survival.

To successfully use the strategies of Heaven, Earth, and

mankind (Tenchijin), the Ninja must become one with all

things

in

the

Universe,

and embody

the

spirit

of

the

flowers, and the Bamboo. You must know when to bend with the wind, and know their is no need too bend when their is no wind. You must be able to become the void itself, in order to master the secrets of using the scheme of totality, to accomplish your will.

If you ask if their is truly such a thing as the fundamental techniques of Ninjutsu, we will say No. If you ask if you are practising the fundamentals correctly, we will tell you their is no right, and no wrong way. These moves which we

call fundamental sare only a means

for the attainment of

the natural ever appropriate responsive movement that comes with personal enlightenment.
