Ghetto Bushi – The Art of Survival

Always Remember

“Always remember Henry Smalls who, without legs choose to say,
“I can walk” and so he does.”
— Butch San Dan

Ghetto Bushi
The art of survival

I have been in the martial arts over 30 years now becoming a chief instructor of my own martial arts school called REIUN-KENKAI, religion and philosophy as will as history have had a very strong influence on the pattern which have leading me into writing and influencing me as a musician and actor. I have starred in movies and been written about numerous times on the international scale. What makes this unusual is that at age 11 there was a train accident in which I lost both legs and through hard times and good times through hard work and dedication I have proceeded on to win karate championships as well as kendo demonstrating the skill which has developed from hard work. Invited to travel around United States and other countries speaking to the philosophy I have learned through the hard training only life teaches each day through the bounty of endless possibility of choices made each day moment to moment in the supreme power of the (now) being a motivation and inspiration for many people surviving perception of others of what should be possible out of and individual life force.

Ghetto:
A ghetto and environment occupied by a group especially in social economic or legal pressure a crowd urban areas live in poverty section of a city.

Born in the place where you would think I had no chance to overcome a place where you knew my history before I even begun on a corner there’s a liquor store and one must carry a gun Born in last place not expect to us to last although winning anyway through the ghetto path.

Bushi:
One skilled in the combative art of survival whose living in constant preparation for the what is.

As a martial artist I have learned through training there is mental prosperity as one prepare for life in daily mindfulness in decisions made in the what is the what is that is there before ones life.
The what is our teacher no matter where we start rich or poor in pain or joy to open the mind to what is the light that eliminate the dark place in the ego that is bankrupt just feeling its way in life as if living life is without endless potential and ego that sees itself in a dark room only imagining what is there before its path falling down bumping into things imagine by a ego in the dark. We have to train to see beyond ourselves in order to see the many ways of living within the universe bigger than our ego
