I have developed a course curriculum created from the carved stone tablets found on the walls at Wat Po and from some of the ancient palm-leaf manuscripts written in Pali and Sanskrit. My book is written to be the definitive reference to these ancient writings and carvings and to introduce this ancient medicinal massage technique to the United States."
Traditional Japanese Martial Arts Frank Nilden provides a listing of the names of many Ryu Ha. Similar to Bugei Ryu Ha Daijiten in English. http://www.geocities.com/HotSprings/6065/
Extractions: Traditional Japanese Bujutsu This page contains, in alphabetical order, a number of traditional Japanese martial arts Ryu (schools) that might be of interest for serious students of Martial Arts. The list contains links - if available - to other sites that may have some more information. The links looks like this: . I have also added links to a picture when possible. If you want to add items or links to the list, send me a message . I try to keep the information in the list historically correct, however, due to my limited knowledge of some ryu, errors might have occurred. Before the restoration of the Meji era in 1868 a very large number of ryu existed, there was reckoned to be about 3000 ryu. Most of the ryu was created by noble Samurai, others simply by ronin or even common people. The ryu sometimes divided into branches, ha , as a result of the various masters composing new techniques or movements from old ones. The seat of a ryu was usually located were the founder lived. Some ryu were independent, others belonged to the great families, Daimyo. Each master had his own style, ryugi , and transmitted the secrets, okuden , of his style to a few chosen disciples. Most of the ryu which still existed before the second world war have now dissapeared, for the old masters are dead and the pupils have deserted the dojo. According to the Bujutsu Ryu Soroku, a work published in 1843, there were in Japan at that date some 150 important Ryu; 66 teaching Ken-Jutsu and Iai-Jutsu, 31 teaching So-Jutsu, 20 teaching Ju-Jutsu, 19 in the use of firearms and 14 devoted to Kyu-Jutsu. Any Bujutsu/Budo system established before 1877 are recognised as Ko Ryu (old schools). Thereafter they are known as Gendai Bujutsu, or modern martial arts. Some ryu in this list, like the Chujo Ryu, are now extinct, others, like the
Traditional Skiing In Finland Traditional Skiing in Finland. These tips apply to the type of ski used for the Traditional or classical crosscountry skiing technique. http://virtual.finland.fi/finfo/english/skiing.html
Extractions: Fire and movement. A couple of combatants lunge forward during a battle in Saija, Lapland on 21 February 1940. The Finns used to say of themselves that they were born on skis, and the world outside believed them. They would not make the same claim so lightly now, as the ski has changed from being an everyday utility, a means of transport in rural areas, to its present status as an item of equipment for sports and leisure. That said, one should not forget the exception of the Finnish army, which still respects the ski as an effective aid to mobility and trains its soldiers to operate in snow. They did so to great effect in the Winter War of 1939-1940 against the Soviet Union and in the subsequent campaign against the same adversary between 1941 and 1944.

Extractions: Resource Conservation Alliance The Government Purchasing Project (GPP) is dedicated to protecting the environment and human health through market-based strategies. GPP works to encourage the government to use its immense purchasing power to promote safe, cost-effective, energy-efficient, and environmentally-sound products. The government is the largest consumer in the United States, representing 20 percent of the gross national product.
