The Four Sicknesses, or more accurately the Four Prohibitions – Shikai (四戒).
These are four things that we should, of course, avoid – which is usually easier said than done – however, the importance of them is not just their avoidance, but study of the sicknesses gives us insights into our own path to improvement.
Shikai are mostly discussed at the advanced stages of Kendo, but you don’t have to be an advanced kendo practitioner to find out more about them and apply the knowledge into your current martial arts practice and life.
We invite you to join out Shin Shin Kaisen FB Group to participatie in the Live chat and meet more like-minded people.
This talk is free to all group members
