武才

ぶさい

busai

Glossary Category:  Shinjinbukan/Philosophy

Lit. Martial Age.  It refers to the age of the Martial Artist without regards to age in years or rank.  In other words, busai is the true depth and maturity of a martial artist.  In the Shinjinbukan School, busai is achieved when someone has a complete understanding of Ti as a cohesive system with many integrated components, rather than most martial artists today, who just collect waza, i.e. techniques and moves.  Achieving this maturity means that he or she is able to continue the evolution of Ti by developing, researching, demonstrating and teaching the system a whole.  Busai could also be applied to evaluate the true depth of any martial art.
See waza

Glossary Category:  Budō/Philosophy
