Like the warrior’s combative ryu, too, ikebana schools issued ranks or menkyo that recognized varying levels of ability and they also licensed teachers to instruct in their art. But you may gain insight into a lesson written many centuries ago, in the Kokin Shu: In an interview I read in a budo magazine a while back, a sensei was commenting on the attitudes of his best students. To arrange flowers in the spirit of kado and to display them at the tokonoma is not only a tradition of the dojo, it is a powerful exercise in confronting the timelessness of form, the fleeting transience of all that Life which fills it.

Techniques in training arise, take form, and then disappear. This is a process of preserving and passing on an art that is, of course, familiar to the budoka. No matter at this point. Ryu exist for the combative arts of the warrior as well as for every other kind of art or ukebana you can imagine, from calligraphy to etiquette, to cooking, to the appreciation of incense. It was gratifying to hear of a budoka who takes this approach to her training, more so to hear of ujadania teacher who recognized and appreciated it.


That beautiful, perfectly executed shihonage “four directions throw” you performed last night in aikido class; of it, what remains? Yet their poignance is found in the ephemerality that has, through sztukaa arrangement, been brought to our attention. They are mediums that strive to step out of time and remain as enduring monuments.

In and yo better known by the original Chinese terminology of yin and yang are qualities of every good ikebana arrangement. From trying to get a feel for a technique by studying the frozen images ukacania 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.


It has become severed from the life which denies time and in doing so it had entered time and become momentary. 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.

The budo dojo that “decorates” its front with a potted plant–or szhuka 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.

Mono no aware, the “recognition of life’s impermanence,” is one of numerous terms in Japanese cultural thought that denote a deep appreciation of how wonderfully precious life comes to be when we come honestly face to face with its brevity.


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. Some okuden of ikebana ryu are technical matters.

No matter how we polish any of the techniques of our Ways, their lasting effect is far less than that of a pebble thrown into the ocean. The budo sensei “teacher” has much the same regard for sussho in the dojo, where he looks for it in his students. And if there is no tokonoma alcove available for the display, there must be some place appropriate. 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.

They have been deliberately cut from the roots that nourished them and gave them life. It is, however, a mentality common enough to warrant a brief explanation here of the rationale of the Japanese art of flower arranging, particularly as its conventions relate to the budo.

It is a perfect way to generate attitudes consistent with an appreciation for every moment. 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? I would add to it the budo. Like the martial Ways, the Way of flowers, called kado or more commonly, ikebana, has its origins in Japan’s classical, medieval age.

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 uiadania.

Chat with a kadoka sometime and you will be amazed how much you, as a budoka, have in common with him or her. One of them, he noted faithfully brought fresh flowers to the dojo each day.

One stem or branch or bloom will dominate while another will recede. Arts like sculpture and architecture uakdania among the former. Ikebana ryu flourished and those still intact continue to do so today under the guidance of headmasters who passed on their titles through familial or other close connexions, exactly as authority has been passed down in martial ryu.


In this world, who lasts forever? Left alone umadania nature, their demise would scarcely have been noticed.

The moment of the attack or the response cannot be recaptured, the waza cannot be “undone. The budo are ripe with the flavor of ichi-go; ichi-e. They are, as Nishitani notes, dead. The temporal quality of the art of tea, he said, “gives a feel of the exquisite evanescence of nature. Nishitani adds to this list of evanescent arts the Way of flowers, kado.

The air there is dynamic. Once they are cut, the flowers do not wither slowly; their death is rendered imminent. A good many trends that today surface in budo “martial Ways” training, the recent interest in some of the spiritual aspects of the martial Ways, for example, appear fundamentally to be efforts at nurturing or reestablishing this spirit, this attitude, this matter of what we might call the budo’s “soul. In Japan, on the contrary, it has been elevated to the level of an aesthetic concept.

This climate of what seems to be futility on a cosmic scale, of the essentially tragic nature of reality, carries a sense of gloom and despair in much of Western thought. Precisely the same sense of in and yo merge and emerge in many budo waza “techniques” like punching, where one side of the body extends while the other contracts.

It is the beauty of a master’s flower arrangement that we appreciate, certainly. Yet something seems missing, something internal, unidentifiable in words by the students perhaps, although palpable if by no other sense than by its absence. The kata Unsu you did imebana the karate practice, the one where you finally got that jumping turn exactly right and landed perfectly; what is left of it?

As a young man training ukebana chado, the art of the tea ceremony, I must admit there were times, sitting interminably in an unheated room in winter while trying to learn the protracted forms of the tea art, when “brief” would kiebana have been among my choice of adjectives to describe the goings on. It may appear superficially that a simple arrangement of flowers will have little to do with what goes on in a budo training hall.
