Kenji Ushiro (Profile)



Ushiro Karate --- Practical Philosophy of Bujutsu. . 3,080 yen
[ISBN: 9784910001180]


Win without fighting - the definitive version of Ushiro Karate that realizes the essence of Bujutsu!

This book is a compilation of three of Kenji Ushiro's karate books, "The Origin of Budo” (in 2000), "The Knowledge and Practice of Bujutsu Karate” (in 2001), and "The Way to Bujutsu Karate” (in 2003). And it is the definitive version of “Ushiro Karate”with new and detailed additions and corrections.

The essence of Bujutsu Karate, beyond styles and schools, is explained based on actual practice. What is the true meaning of Bujutsu? What is the meaning of Kata? What is the meaning of Bunkai-kumite? What is Body-Brain? What is Breathing Power? What is Neutralization? Who is a master? What is training? The book is a must-read for all practitioners of Bujutsu, not just karate practitioners.

In addition, this book contains a "practical philosophy" of life that leads to how we should be in our daily lives, how we should be as people, how we should be as leaders, and ultimately, how we should live based on Mr. Ushiro's wide range of experiences and perspectives as a corporate leader and a leading-edge engineer in the field of electronics. This is the starting point for the teaching of "Ki" that Mr. Ushiro is currently deploying to bring out the potential of human beings.

This book is not a ‘how-to’ book as we have seen in recent years. This is because there is no how-to in Bujutsu. However, for those who are serious about pursuing the path of Bujutsu, I am certain that this book will lead them to the true way of training. Furthermore, for those who are searching for a way to live in this difficult time, I am confident that this book will be a guide to living an unwavering life.

Ushiro-Style Breathing: Streaming Ki through the Body . . 1,512 yen
[ISBN: 9784910001005]
A freed body not being stuck.
An unified body with Ki streaming through the body.
A “Practical” breathing method that enables the body to bring out its full potential.

This practical breathing method comes from Kenji Ushiro, who has been guiding people with his Ki energy that he acquired, as a program to enable people to free their body from being stuck. This breathing method is completely different from the existing ones such as chest breathing, abdominal breathing, or tanden which require people to be conscious or image their body parts.

It is necessary to unify the body by having Ki running through the body to enable the body’s potential that people are born with. Getting back the natural body is the foundation to bring up the energy from within. This leads to the breathing that creates a body without an opening which is one of the ultimate goal of martial arts.

The book comes with illustrations that describe the breathing method and the online video demonstrating the actual breathing practice.

The Power of Human Potential

The Power of Human Potential . . . 1,080 yen
[ISBN: 9784904464960]
"How to unlock the human's potential that people are born with."

The book addresses this key question with practical and verifiable method. A definitive edition of "Ushiro Theory."

"Unlocking human's potential" is a common theme and many books provide the "How to." The key difference of this book is to provide with practical methods that unlock the potential by first showing what it is, explaining why people are unable to unlock it, and addressing the main cause and the necessity of "Unified body" as the enabler.

This book is an edited summary of three books by Kenji Ushiro, "Humans are born complete," "Living Humbly" and "Children Can Do What Adults Cannot" with focus in unlocking human's potential. The book is in English and Japanese for a global audience.
