I am very fond of seal script, or Tensho in Japanese. Not very many calligraphers are into the style. I myself like the ancient feelings it evokes.
So I have been learning to use my scanner and convert files. Here is the first piece of my simple calligraphy as I begin training again.
The character is 'Ho,Kuzu' For the philosophers of throwing technique, kuzushi is the magic element of the throw.
The character literally means - crumble, collapse, destroy, pull down, cave in, to get out of shape, degenerate, level, or cause to be relaxed.
In the modern character the pictographic form is of a mountain with two moons under it. I do not know some of the radicals on this ancient form.
Kanji Dictionary, look at third character down on list
If you look into it I can see the idea emerging. A mountain is on top. Forces are moving under it, destablising it. Interesting to see three bands of motion under it. Bill Parker Sensei taught a seminar at KyuRyu where distorting the uke in three directions at once was a critical idea of efficient throws. As the mountain is moved from underneath, the logicial conclusion is for it to crumble down the slope.
