The Way Of The Fan. The Slide-show.

The WAY OF THE FAN… is much more than just… flapping your hands and fanning about. An ancient and noble lineage ties this Weapon to the origins and founding of Japan itself. At one time in History… this weapon form so blunted the SAMURAI SWORD… the Elites… banned it. No fan of the FAN there it seems. A VISUAL DEDICATION… with some of Shiro’s… pen scratchings too.

 

ANY FAN OF YOURS…

 

Introducing this WEAPONRY FORM gives Shiro a chance to share much more than the knowledge within Our World Legends.

 

 

Though unknown at the time,.. (click)

when Shiro began NINPO TRAINING in Adelaide and Japan with SOKE Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi and S. Ed Lomax and the BUJINKAN group of Students and instructors therein;

THE FAN… was there too.

 

Twas there and here too,.. that Shiro has indeed become…

a fan of…

 THE

 WAY OF THE FAN.

 

 

This was vis THE ARTS OF TESSEN JUTSU (click).

Below… a recreation of Shiro’s… FIRST FAN.

 THE FAN IN THE LEGENDS.

 

BUJINKAN NINPO is one of the few remaining Martial systems that incorporates THE FAN into it’s Teachings and Traditions. A rather unique, yet classical WEAPONRY FORM that directly links Our World LEGENDS OF ANCIENT JAPAN with the Mysteries of the ARTS OF WAR and divine God beings too.

(This intel/info is in an upcoming article currently being researched by Shiro.)

 

LEGENDARY HEROES,.. the likes of…

such as BENKEI, YOSHITSUNE, GANRYU, THE TENGU

 

and others all fanned their WAY OF THE FAN.

 

Our World Legends indeed,..

in deed and in fact… as well.

 

Though infinitely innocuous and useful for breezing… a breeze of sorts-

THE FAN is a hand-held Weapon, full of pointed promise.

 

Size, shape and relatively sturdy construction make it so easy…

and handy to handle.

 

An item that would not rate a second glance… gives no quarter and… no second chances indeed. Where space is confined it excels, can be quickly and quietly adjusted to suit circumstances and fits neatly… almost everywhere and anywhere.

Slim design… like Shiro btw…

can simply be opened… to FAN THE WAY…

 

ANYWAY it seems.

 FANNING… ACT…IONS

The FAN is also fully fanned out + flapped about too,

during the act of… ACTING actions indeed.

 

A subtle yet poignant set of entertainment can be posited by actors who understand the movements and intentions.

 

Can be used to hide… oneself…

to hide embarrassment too,.. to point out and indicate, even to highlight villainry, chivalry, sacrifice and more.

 

 FAN… OF THE FAN WAY.

Versatile… + hand-held air-con to boot…

well…

to the face usually, actually.

 

THE WAY OF THE FAN.

LEGEND.

Our World Legends.

Shiro is a fan,..

are YOU;..

 

A FAN OF THE FAN… TOO.?.

  1. Hi OP.
    Can I just say what a stress reduction to search out someone
    who really is aware of what they’re speaking about on the internet :).
    You positively know methods to bring a problem to light
    and make it more important.
    More people must read this and understand this aspect of the story.
    I can’t imagine you’re not more famous because you definitely have the gift.
