This “Jigen” school was founded by Togo-chui about 1600 A. D.The curriculum of this Jigen-school consists of principles, the firm grassing of wood sword, the quickness of the motion, the skills to beat, the dignity, and gazing at the opponent.In this treatise the quickness of the motion will be dealt with, and the way to get this skill will also be dealt with.To get the quick skill we must be accustomed to the distance between us and the opponent, and the quick motion of legs and hands. Further-more we must be innocent, must take to and a half steps within a pulse, when we attach the opponent. It is important to “Shout”, too. It is necessary for us to have half a breath left, and use various kinds of skills according to the movement of the opponents.
