The main theme of Japanese Academy of Budo was to study the history and technology of Japanese Budo. It would be necessarry for us to research the combat Sports is the Orient after this. Taking part in the 3rd Chinese International Shorin Bujutsu tournament, I consider about the form and substance of Bujutsu tournament and the history of Shorin Bujutsu.
1) Shorin Bujutsu was the roots of chinesebujutsu. At 5 centuries, some priests have practiced Shorin Bujutsu at Shorin temple. According to Kikoshinsyo written by Keisekiko, the founder of Snorin Bujutsu was Chokyoin who devised 32 kenpou and bludgeon. Priests practicing kenpou based on kick named Hokuken and people practicing kenpou based on push with hands named Nan Ken. Also there was the arts of fencing, whip, sward and stick in Shorin Bujutsu.
2) There are Shorin-ken, Taikyoku-ken, Nan-ken, Sword, Stick and Bludgeon in Kata contest of Bujutsu tournament. Each player does not make a bow each other because of practicing it as Bujutsu rather than as Budo. As a match called Sanda, they combat each other with push, kick and throwing. A contestant matches 10 classes of weightism and puts on protecter. The technique of winning is to be seen by throwing rather than pushing and kicking.
