Seiryoku Zenyo


Seiryoku Zenryo-Use your energy wisely


This is one of two new kakemono wall scrolls that were inspired by the training precepts of Jigoro Kano, (1860-1938) a student in his early years of Tenjin Shinyo Ryu and Kito Ryu jujutsu, and in later life, the Founder of modern judo. When Kano began his study of jujutsu, the training was brutal, the techniques lethal, and rivalry between schools so great it often led to fatal encounters between masters. The movie film Sugata Sanshiro written and directed by cinema virtuoso, Akira Kurosawa, gives a wonderfully accurate view of jujutsu during the Meiji era, and is strongly recommended for anyone interested in the subject.
