From trying to get a feel for a technique by studying the frozen images of photographs in a book, to the frustration experienced by those who try to follow and copy the spontaneous and endlessly mutable waza of the great masters of the martial Ways, we have all grappled with the elusive impermanence of the budo.

See how your arrangement makes you feel during the practice that follows. Self-discipline, the cultivation of moral energies, and the creation of aesthetic form: Some okuden of ikebana ryu are technical matters.

He sees it in them, in their own, uniquely individual natures, and it is this sussho that he must bring out in each person as that person progresses in the art.

The current headmaster of the Urasenke ryu of chado, Sen Soshitsu XV, was talking about ikeabna ultimate goal of all the forms of the Japanese Do when he said that they excite us to “do our best to realize each precious moment.

I would add to it the budo.


Ryu exist for the combative ukadsnia of the warrior as well as for every other kind of art or skill you can imagine, from calligraphy to etiquette, to cooking, to the appreciation of incense.

While emanating a faint coolness from within and fathomless composure–like a person who has eradicated all attachments to life and abandoned all the expectations fundamental to our mundane existence–through a complete silence they communicate that which is eternal. They were transmitted only to trusted members of the ryu who had proven their worthiness through long and often arduous training. In this world, who lasts forever?


Just a single blossom and a simple ukasania container will do. The exponent of a ryu of swordsmanship, for example, learned to kill with his weapon by imitating and mastering the kata “formal exercises”the predetermined patterns of attack and counter that were proven effective by earlier practitioners iikebana the tradition in a process of trial and error on the battlefield. The budo are ripe with the flavor of ichi-go; ichi-e.


It is important to understand that the practitioner of ikebana no more seeks in his art to make a “pretty bouquet” than the budoka seeks to learn “self defense. The daily attendance to an ikebana arrangement in the dojo is a rite that reinforces this mentality. While au courant New Age philosophies would have it otherwise, a central rationale for following the path of the budo is in coming to grips with our relative unimportance in the world.

This art of transience is one Nishitani finds particularly conducive to Japanese ikebwna of expression. The moment of the attack or the response cannot be recaptured, the waza cannot be “undone. This climate of what seems to be futility on a cosmic scale, of the ukadsnia tragic nature of reality, carries a sense of gloom and despair in ukxdania of Western thought.

Safe, durable training floor surfaces, adequate dressing facilities, and so on, are more apt to concern dojo builders iiebana will a shelf devoted to flower arrangements. The tsuki “thrust” that hit the throat plate of your opponent’s helmet so perfectly centered it rocked his whole body backward and bowed out the staves of your shinai bamboo sword ; is there any evidence of the attack that is still around?

The kata Unsu you did at the karate practice, the one where you finally got that jumping turn exactly right and landed perfectly; kkebana is left of it? Once they are cut, the flowers do not wither slowly; their death is rendered imminent. Perhaps it will be nothing.

The temporal quality of the art of tea, he said, “gives a feel of the exquisite evanescence of nature. The member of a ryu of ikebana learned to create forms with flowers and other natural materials by emulating lessons expounded in the “kata” of flower arranging as well.

Like the martial Ways, the Way of flowers, called kado or more commonly, ikebana, has its origins in Japan’s classical, medieval age.

Unless you have had ikebana training, you arrangement will not be ikebana. This much I have learned; the blossom that fades away, its color unseen, is the flower of the heart Of one who lives in this world.

And if there is no tokonoma alcove available for the display, there must be some place appropriate. One stem or branch or bloom will dominate while another will recede. But you may gain insight into a lesson written many centuries ago, in the Kokin Shu: Nishitani adds to this list of evanescent arts the Way of flowers, kado. It is a perfect way to generate attitudes consistent with an appreciation for every moment.


Come to the dojo early enough to have it to yourself, with flowers and a container. It was gratifying to hear of a budoka who takes this approach to her training, more so to hear of a teacher who recognized and appreciated it. Techniques in training arise, take form, and then disappear. Sure, got a decade to spend on the task? Martial ryu and ikebana ryu share the intriguing convention of the okuden.

We pause at the beauty of ikebana. The budo dojo that “decorates” its front with a potted plant–or even more regrettably with plastic or artificial flowers–has, from the perspective of mono no aware, of ichi-go; ichi-e, of the whole notion of the value of the temporal, badly missed a chance to further define and refine budo philosophy. The flower of ikebana, he said, is “in the world of death, poised in death.

When an attack comes, there is no opportunity for contemplation or reflection.

They are filled with budoka who are learning well the outer, physical aspects of their art. No matter how we polish ukadamia of the techniques of our Ways, their lasting effect is far less than that of a pebble thrown into the ocean.

In the ancient Enshu Ryu of ikebana, one series of okuden concern the matching of arrangements exactly to the seasons. The tea ceremony, Noh drama, haiku poetry; all last for an instant, for the briefest span of time. That beautiful, perfectly executed shihonage “four directions throw” you performed last night in aikido class; of it, what remains? This facet of the martial Ways is one of such importance that I don’t think it can be overemphasized, particularly in our times.

In and yo better known by the original Chinese terminology of yin and yang are qualities of every good ikebana arrangement. Because growing naturally at that time of the year, they would likely be bent beneath a load of wet spring snow. Fading away in the garden outside, we are barely aware of their passing from our busy world.
