Onken Jutsu

Onken Jutsu is a synonym for Shoken Jutsu. However Meifu Shinkage Ryu has developed weapons specially for Onken jutsu.

We have few of these weapons in Meifu Shinkage Ryu. They are small and their advantage is that they are secret.

The essence of Onken jutsu is suprised enemies by unexpected attack. If you manage to achieve this may be your attack will be successful, the fight will be under your control and the attacker will be defeated before they will be able to show their own capabilities. This will get rid of threats with minimum effort. This is the true essence of Onken jutsu.

Therefore to achieve success you must use an unexpected attack and have perfect timing. The attack must be made ​​at the last possible moment. At that moment stick “your fangs” and attack like a lighting from the clean sky.

The secret teaching of Onken jutsu is Mikiri – the decision to lead the attack.

Fear will makes you hesitate or sometimes on the contrary Your stubbornness makes you hurry even if the attacker is not in Your range.

So that´s why to achieve the proper Mikiri is important to get the highest skill and mental control in study of Meifu Shinkage Ryu.

So that´s why the techniques of  Onken jutsu are taught really only the most advanced students after complete mastery of the school curriculum.

It is important to note here that the purpose of Onken jutsu is not get the killer skills. It is not our intention.

Budo is not about hurting people. If you wish to have a power you must also learn how to control it.

This is the main philosophy of Meifu Shinkage Ryu.
