Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai

* Kosho Concepts: Hioshi and Ma-ai

This all new video course is part of the Advanced Kosho Core Concepts comes Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai. The understanding of Timing and Distance. 

One of the most important concepts, important understanding in all of martial arts study, regardless of style is Hioshi and Mi-ai. And these are also rarely focus on or discussed and vary rarely trained in! That is until NOW.

And this is what Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai is all about. The breakdown, understanding and training in Timing and Distance. 

Today martial arts has a primary focus on sport, Kumite.

And while Kumite or free sparring has its place, that place is not the main focus. All free sparring is based on prejudice. That prejudice is on what and how the martial artist like to do things. And that is not realistic

There is also a BIG focus on power. and with this came the death of Gamae. Power is not created by big muscles but rather correct and proper body mechanics, and postures. 

Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai

The old master taught wrong on purpose. And as I have said the problem is that this has not been corrected. You have been taught "what to do" but not "when" to do it. And this is a VERY BIG when! Time and speed have been looked at as the same thing, and they are not.  Very importantly most martial arts techniques are designed for a distance of 6 to 12 feet. This is why the "BJJ" took the world by storm in the 90's, seemed undefeatable. That is because it is at a 3 foot distance or less. And no one trained for this!  And that is Ma-ai, the understand of distance.

Hioshi is timing, the deep understanding of WHEN to move. And when you have great Hioshi you also have great speed. Yet, no one speaks of this, unless they confuse the two terms. Mai-ai or distance is completely ignored. The focus of self defense today is on what the defender wants to do in reaction to the opponent.

But this will not work as the defender is behind the attacker in motion. And that is what this course Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai, the understanding or timing and distance is all about.

What is in Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai?
  • A look at "when" to move not just how to move
  • Closing distance or giving up distance to control the attacker
  • Timing, understanding of the relationship between posture, distance, and speed.
  • Taking the distance away from the attacker
  • Why everything is at a 3 foot distance.
  • And more!

Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai is one of the most important understandings in the martial arts world!

Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai

Martial Arts training should not be looked at as an activity. It is rather a study. And a study that lasts for a lifetime. The world is in the trouble it is in today because people are not educated, they are indoctrinated. Therefore they regurgitate information that is not truth, but part of a narrative.

And the martial arts world has been affected by this also. Thus the believe that ring fighting and feats of physical prowess are the only way. There is no truth to this idea. These things have value, but are only a fraction of the entire picture.

Learning is for a lifetime.

How often have you heard someone say that they are "too old for" something? There is not truth to this as age is a state of mind. Anyone can do the Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai. Age is a state of mind.

Too many martial artists my age have relegated themselves to talking about their glory days at a coffee shop, or worse social media platforms. Remember to "Never say Never" or "Niciodată să nu spui niciodată" in Romanian. You are never to old to learn, and as an example I am learning a language to the point of certifying as a speaker in my 60's. And I consider this to be part of my martial arts training! 

Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai

Kosho Ryu is the study of natural laws, and language is who we communicate and teach those laws. Age is a state of mind. But if you are trapped in the idea that martial arts is ONLY physical, a victory at a tournament then you grow old. Relegated to talking about the glory days at a Pizza Hut as Hanshi Juchnik states it. And this course on the Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai is an important part of learning and study.

My Journey in Kosho

Some believe that I am new to the study of Kosho Ryu and am trying to build a name for myself in this art. That is furthest thing from the truth. I began my Kosho Ryu journey in 2000 with Shidoshi Richard Buchan and continued after we parted ways. 

Kosho Ryu became a major part of everything we did in our art of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido. And even the name Hon San Mu Sa is a Kosho reference. Old Pine Tree, where a monk was enlightened under a pine tree about Natural Laws.  For years I referred to the study as Octagon training until I recently realized I needed to honour the history of the art by remaining true to the linage. 

Kosho Ryu, in truth is now my root art, as I have been training in it longer than anything else including Hapkido. I do not study Kosho for the purpose of rank. I have enough rank. I study it for personal development and growth withing the arts. And to share that knowledge with all those interested in learning. 

Kosho Ryu has done for me exactly what I was seeking when I left my first teacher. The answer to the question of waht was missing in Hapkido. And how that learning translated to the streets. It is what makes Kyusho Jitsu, the science of pressure points street worthy. But to learn we must truly let go of the things we think we know and learn.

I hope you will join me on this journey. All knowledge is self knowledge, and Kosho Ryu is a true study of Natural Laws and therefore the self. And Kosho Concepts Hioshi and Ma-ai is part of this journey.

Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day! Keep Learning!
