Weekend quote – Sigmund Freud


November 8, 2013
Yossi Sheriff

1st quote

I once discussed the phenomenon that is exactly communities with adjoining territories, communities related to each other in other ways as well, who are engaged in constant feuds and in ridiculing each other — like the Spaniards and Portuguese, for instance, the North Germans and South Germans, the English and Scotch, and so on.

I gave this phenomenon the name of “the narcissism of minor differences”, a name which does not do much to explain it. We can now see that it is a convenient and relatively harmless satisfaction of the inclination to aggression, by means of which cohesion between the members of the community is made easier.

2nd quote

The method we have been using over the last two weeks, of equalizing the push energy and creating a dependable attack pattern with the Uke, will be utilized, this Thursday, to employ advanced techniques against a Tsuki.

The sessions will start with kamae followed by the himum. The session ends with Randori.

In the attached two videos we can see Chiyonokuni vs Takanoyama in two consecutive Sumo bouts and in the second one Takanoyama works out the techniques we have been practicing lately.

There are several ways to apply forward force on an opponent. The most simple is a two handed, simultaneous, push with a tsugi ashi. This Wednesday we will repeat this push and move on to diversify Uke’s push technique an a way that will allow for flow in high energy scenarios.

On this intricate execution phase we will be dealing with the low level of violence.


The sessions start with Ninjutsu kamae followed by the himum. The session ends with Randori.

Preserving traditional syllabus, in my dojo and at the AKBAN documentation project, our wiki, is a huge challenge in the maze that is the Takamatsu-den. For me, the difficulties are somewhat more intricate because everything I practice goes through a pragmatic randori filter.

Trying to teach correct timing, distancing and execution of a traditional technique has always baffled me. I think that a Tsuki punch is a great technique (using the fourth timing of course), I just don’t think it is a good method for Tori to practice a technique against. Using a Tsuki, Uke has difficulty to preserve efficiency and distance. I think the particulars of last week method, especially the applying the Tsukitaoshi (突き倒し) have been bridging the gap and will allow us to speedily acquire complex timing skills against a charging opponent.

So, this Sunday we will expand on the Tsukitaoshi we used last week and apply with other attacks.

The sessions start with Ninjutsu kamae followed by the himum. The session ends with Randori.
