Hi my name is Scott Boyd. I am a 6th dan in traditional karate do. I have been awarded the title of Shihan. I have been teaching karate for over 30 years and have compleated at all levels of martial arts tournaments including regional, state, national and international competitions and I was very successful at it. When it comes to competing in martial arts tournaments. I believe there are two types of competitors, firstly those who are naturally sports gifted and seem to do well at any sport ...

In this episode we start into an exploration of the Budoushoshinshu, written in the early Tokugawa era as a manual to young samurai as the warrior class was grappling with what it meant to be warriors in a time and place without war. We look at a little of the history and the background of the work. Contrast the Confucian nature of this work with t…
 
Today I am going to give you my retelling of a very short story from Issai Chozanshi’s Inaka Soshi. These are parable-like stories not unlike Aesop’s Fables but much more subtle.I’ve taken a little creative license in these retellings, so be aware that they’re not direct translations but hopefully I can retain their intrinsic lessons while also mak…
 
Closing out this exploration of martial themes in the Star Wars films, Jaredd Wilson of the Martial Thoughts Podcast and I talk about the prequels. One of the things that seems obvious in retrospect, but I had never noticed before was how closely the story of the Jedi in the prequels parallels the myths of the Shaolin temple. I hope you’ve enjoyed …
 
Jaredd Wilson of the Martial Thoughts Podcast and I continue our discussion of the martial themes in the Star Wars films with Return of the Jedi. At least for me the Heihou Kadenshou came up repeatedly as I rewatched the film so, if you haven't already, it might help to go back and listen to Episode 35: Through Dragonfly Eyes after this one.…
 
Continuing our conversation on martial themes in the Star Wars films. Jaredd Wilson of the Martial Thoughts Podcast and I tackle Empire Strikes Back. For better or worse this film has influenced and is built off many of the assumptions, preconceived notions, misunderstandings and also truths of the martial arts and their masters. Embodied both in o…
 
Recently, I got to join Jaredd Wilson of the Martial Thoughts Podcast in a discussion about martial arts themes in film. Today, we look at Star Wars: A New Hope wherein we discuss a variety of themes ranging from verbal deescalation to the hero's journey as a symbolic theme across many stories and how the Star Wars films were in many ways inspired …
 
In this introductory episode we look at one of the three traditional divisions of philosophy. Epistemology, which is the study of knowledge. How do we know anything and how can we trust that what we know is accurate. A very important question for anyone studying the martial arts.

In this introductory episode we look at a classic allegory used to teach philosophical principles. We then take a stab at interpreting it through the lens of martial arts training.

In this episode we build off the foundations of the last two episodes about the Greeks and take a detailed look at the Battle of Thermopylae (as well as a battle that comes afterwards) as a lens into the classical Greek views of which was more important. Displaying bravery or obeying orders. We then take a look at how to apply this in our own daily…
 
In our longest episode to date. We turn to a new, perhaps surprising, source for martial philosophy. The Greeks. Specifically Homer's Iliad. Where we explore this idea of "No Man Left Behind." What makes us care about retrieving the bodies of dead soldiers at significant cost and risk to the still living? The blurry echoes of these ideas may be fou…
 
Today we try to provide a very basic framework by which you can answer this question. As usual I'm not going to tell you an answer but we'll spend a little time talking about how we can think about this problem and come up with a reasonably well-thought out response. You can read today's quote in context here: https://ctext.org/mozi/anti-fatalism-i…
 
In this episode we look at the way of the junzi (君子), the "superior person" according to Mozi. A philosophical opponent to Kongzi (Confucius) who, I think, lends his philosophy well to anyone looking to practice the martial arts. Our selection today comes from Book 1 "Befriending The Learned" (https://ctext.org/mozi/befriending-the-learned). You mi…
 
In this episode we look at the first few lines of The Analects and find a description of what could be interpreted as traits of an ideal martial arts school.https://walkingtengu.wix.com/tengu學而時習之,不亦說乎?有朋自遠方來,不亦樂乎?人不知而不慍,不亦君子乎?To learn and then at the appropriate time put into practice what you have learned: Is this not a pleasure?To have associate…

What's the point of talking about philosophy and the martial arts? How could this even be a practical thing for a modern martial artist to engage in? I suggest in this episode that you can take three concrete steps in just about any martial art, that will improve your ability to overcome challenges in life.

We get started on the final chapter in the Tengu's sermon where the tengu discuss which weapon is best and give us some pointers on both good posture and how to learn from farmers and laborers.

We dig into the first part of chapter 1 of "The Tengu's Discourse on the Martial Arts" in today's episode. Wherein the tengu talk a bit about technique versus principle and I spend some time justifying Chozanshi's use of the word "chi." Support us at: https://www.patreon.com/walkingtengu
