The Eye Of The Tigress. Upon You.

The Tiger is a Feline Classic in Our World. Legends cattily so and say Tales of Claw n Tails too. To those Rocky bits of Minerals Earth that Shine. The Eye of the Tiger. Does Look. At Many things. Things many. Many Themes that seem to purr so perennial. From The Ways of the Martial, Earth and of Mother Nature. A Trio of Eyes. Upon You. The Tiger. Tigress as well. Arrowed In. Targeted. Herein.


The Eye of the Tiger. Was not. Upon Me.

Not at All.

Nor that of the Tigress which was afore i, Shiro also. Also,

being Thirsty and otherswise occupied, to Waters was She

so headed. There. There,..


then too did i slowly. Slowly, silently. In Shadow.

Smoothly bring up, align Bow, Arrow, Tigress.

Plan B not needed. Not Now. Now


the Tongue of this Tigress curled back as Waters were

flicked and taken in. Her rounded Eyes slowly surveying. Arounds.

Still and ’twas mid Morn yet She had fed already. A

Young Deer that had strayed. Ways too far. Far

from that and Family Herd.


Btw… Tigers do not Roar before Attacks;

but mainly as Long Distance Telephony and Communication.

Certain Other Creatures Calls and Sounds can be imitated. Also.


They prefer The Ambush Styles. No Purrings either.


She so killed quickly in that Big Cat typical Ways.

Body weight shifting to adjust on the accelerated run-in.

A Mature Tiger can Leap some 5-6 Mtrs. Length and Height.

Keeping Pace, the Paw extends, to flick a Trip.





Strong, smooth, relentless. Body-weight, Claws and Teeth

doing that final Work. Working to find vulnerable points of

Bone, Neck, Back or Belly.


Claws honed on those Tall Trees. Trees that so mark and line. Along

the Ways to these Waters thus and so

She sprayed. Spraying as both release and Warning. Warning

to Others alike and not-so. Marking Her Ways

and Lands… along those Ways. The Ways of the Tiger. Thereof.


Males and Females oft share overlapping Territory for reasons of Mate-ship,

Ritual and Tradition.


The smell too, as One closes in, is

of a wild, intense and buttery Popcorn which then so

adorns the Jungles usual green and browns heady scents.




Centred on a Spot a lil’ Ways above the Ribcage. Watching it fill and

empty. Empty becoming

of Thought, Desire and Motive i, Shiro waited for that Final

Alignment. Of Action. Then.


Closed Eyes. Now. Mine.



My Camouflage Clothing, Tree Foliage Add-ons,

Elephant Droppings Rub and Local Experts Teachings


was in deed doing that Hard Works. My Nose a bit tetchy as well. Well as

being One of the few Cats that so loves, indulges in Waters Play. Playful,

soothing and cooling no doubt. No doubt too. To

and though being not endowed with Specific Night Vision and in spite


of being Blind at Birth… for a Week or so,..

still developing

some and a Vision 6 Times better than Mine. Yours also. Day or Night.



This Tigress. Never knew what hit Her.

The Ninja of Japan had well Trained i, Shiro. Well. Well…

quite Hard actually. Any

and Ways… Then.


If i, Shiro had known

The Eye

Of The Tigress.

Upon You

…or Me… at that and those Times and Places. Was


in the Real… ON ME.?.



Those Hands holding the Bow…

and the i, Shiro Camo Pants…

…may have been cattily filled

with more than such placated purring Emotions. So Writ.


The resultant Dinner would not have been had by Me…


but… may… have been Me.!. in deed. Indeed

though not necessarily a Man Hunter;

Man Eater, Tigers sometimes be.

Their Ways too. Are of Survival.


Ways of the Tiger are one of the Classic Animal Forms within Our World. Legends

of Our Martial Arts.

The Tigers Claw… a Classic Move as well. Well as

far and wide in Our World. Legends that so and tell of Names and

Nick-names so applied. Applying Strength, Raw and Natural Beauty

Surprised i, Shiro too. To see and witness the Feeding.

Table Manners in deed. The Tigers do Share. Share

Meals in surprising Ways.


Males await generally for the Young and the Female to have Firsts. First

and foremost at Meal Times… is Share. Tigers

rarely fight over Kills, simply waiting Turns. An innate,


rare Sense, perhaps kicks in. Of



a Respect of Death that can then, Life Gives and Shares. To

Others as well. Well as the Tiger Tongue is Antiseptic. Antiseptic

Licking of Wounds so applied. Therein. Thereupon. As well


a Life Span of some 25 of Our World Years.

of Leopard and Tiger the main in the Wild as they tend to cross

each Others Paths a lil’ more than some Others.


The White Tiger somewhat a rarity. Also. Also



being given such a suitable and Legendary nomen.

Once i, Shiro, have ended so a Career.

Just Once. Only.


Once. When 39.

Once in 2002.


Just Once. Then.

Back then



as i, Shiro bounced, tumbled, rolled, many more than once

across this and that Roadways. Still and till, i hit that end. The Gutter.

The end

of the Road- still so called. -Ways. Hard. There. Laying still.


A minute or so. Later.

Having spent quite enough Times and Places. There. I


then stood up. To move on then and there. Back to

The Kunoichi.



sat back down. Again. Still. In

the Gutter. There. Though upon there now. Now too. To The Kunoichi

i drew. My Eyes. Just Eyes. All



else was starrily unfocused, lightly unreal,

a dark, patchy and smoky blur of kaleidoscope images

in this so scattered shifting recall

and my Memory. There. Still.


I sat. In the Gutter. Still there. Though slightly angled to

get that now so really important long View. Before me. Still. Now. Of

The Kunoichi Kawasaki.

Of the Real. What was Real


and before me. Then.

That was and is. An


end. Then. Also. To Life Dreams. A Career. Just now.

In the Gutter. There. Lay stilled. Then. In 2002. To



describe it so. Waxing and Writ sentimentally now. Now. Not

then. Then

as i sat. Still. I raved. Raved in side so raged, seethed,

tore strips out of me,






Even those Grand-Mothers. Who with Age so experienced of Life as a

Widow. Who

with only Memories. That remain. Who

have left in their Lives. Only a now empty Home. A now stalled stilled

Car. From and of

their Dream Lover. Now. Long Gone. Those. Those who still. Still


drive those stately and white Mercs. Unbending, so stalled. Then. Still. Till

that decision was and is made. That choice which so agreed in conflict.

With Mine.


That choice to show too. To realise the impossible. Impossibility of Two

objects. Sharing both Same Spaces and Times. That choice of


that and those unexpected movements. Back. Straight and too Fast. So

In Reverse,.. then too. To and though. Afore stalled. To,.. now,


over and so through. All over. In speed in deed. To

and through.


The Kunoichi.

The Kunoichi Kawasaki.


Over and through.


Now too. Still. To and fro on





The Kunoichi. Even She. I



so not spared.

The Rage.

This so red rant of Hows and Whys. Into that White She so Flew.

Into the White. Turning Red into that. Of Mind. Mine


of tragedy, anguish, despair.

Hopelessness. Without. Hope. A wrench in the Works. Of



That Hell. Within. Without clarity nor reason within,

afixing rage to Mind and Body. Within so. Without care of fine thought as

well. Well


as i, Shiro. So



raged, so in meandering mental madness of the how come, what

ifs and why nots. Coulds

and woulds. Not or be so. All so

bared and laid out. There. Hows and Whys. In that

and those Real. Ways.


With shattered and mis-shapen Helmet buckled, twisting so. In

my buckled, broken Hands. As Mind

twisted so too. To buckling in, giving in. Broken. Approaching

to that lack of Light. Real


and close to. To so approach that Dark Light,

those and these dark Ways of

bending and shaping Emotions mixed into Words so blackened,

strengthened into

deep and might that curse and rebound, resound within to reach. That

and those far reaching Inner depths, so far. Far gone. The

madness. Within. That Rage.


Of Being.

I was One. Then.


That raved.

At what i saw. In

the Real. Just.



Laying there.


The Kunoichi.

The Kunoichi Kawasaki.


Lay Bared.



With every bone… that i had so not bared nor broken. Joining in. Enjoying

that so futility. Of. Trying

Elephantine Arts of Self-Defence. Martial. Of Yore.

In Our World. Legends do so and tell of Animals. Animal Forms of Self-Defence that mimic and utilise aspects of the Creatures concerned. Concerns of Martialness that led the Ancient Ancestors to follow the Ways of Nature. Nature of the Beast that is. Is Herein. Those of the grand ol’ Pachyderms. Natures. Elephant styled Guardians of a oft forgot and lost Age. Of Yore. Intel Bytes #8 Elephantine Arts of Self-Defence.


Hello and Good Wishes.

Thanks also, in particular. To those persistent Souls who persisted with the

recent flurry of Site Posts piled on. On and during the recent

Holidays of Samhains Halloween.


The Topic and Legends easily expansive. Each Samhain Day, a different Theme.

Two Dedications then the Games/activities.

The Postings tried to resemble the same approach. To show the Natural

Philosophy and Natural Earth Changes and Cycles applicable.


Mother Nature, The Green Man. Our Earth.


The initial Chaos, Wintery Decay, Death, Cleanout, Change. Regeneration.

These are perennial Themes oft in Our World Legends.



Feel more than free to chat/comment/query or submit

a Hallowed Night Tale to share. On any of the recent Ones.


Special Thanks to those who found Time to also actively promote,

Share and spread the Cheer writ of those halls of Hallow posted.


Being involved and aware of the many Elders and Others who take

Time to acknowledge Nature’s Cycles within the Traditions and Families

so concerned with Ceremony in the Real. To them the Real credit for saving


such of Our World Legends from being Lost.

A highlighted Thank-You to the Members and Family

Arts of Self-Defence.

Martial. Of Yore.

The Tree shook, shivered.

My Shins shuddered.

My Feet already numb.

Shooting Shin pains. Skin splits. Blood smears.

Knees, Shoulders, Forearms, Elbows, Palms.


Were next.


Then. Two now smiling… and similarly bloodied…

fellow Class-mates grabbed a Stick each.


One Frontal. One at the Rear. Of me.

Beat a haphazard path on those bits of Me

thus so and far missed. They didn’t miss much more btw’s.


Meat in a Stick Sambo Drum Fest. That is and was, me.

Core. Beaten. Back. Bloodied, not bowed. Well,..


a lil… actually.




The Ways of the Martial Elephant. And Trees.

Of Yore.



Encyclopedia Enigma :

Intel Bytes #8


The Natures of the Elephant.

Solid Strength, Awareness, Astuteness.

Sturdy, Earthy, Enduring.


Dependable. Community inclined.

Supportive. Steadfast.




Arts of Self-Defence.


Animal Themed and based Forms are not uncommon within several in the Ways

of Self-Defence. The Martial Ways. Traditionally a Symbol that so incorporates

assets of the Creature and Our World Legends fascination and beliefs of and with


the Creatures facets.



Conditioning is an essential for Combat oriented Arts and Ways. Ways and Methods

within improve, benefit physically and mentally. Strengthenings.

A Top 6 may include varieties of;


Deadlifts, Squats, Pull-Ups, Push-Ups, Sprints.

Tearing strips off Trees.


Hand, Limb toughening by repetitional strikes.

On progressively tougher Materials.

Bruise upon bruise, calloused skin thick.

Over Times and Places.


Repeated stress and shock to thus and so de-stress

these and those shocks in Combat. Combat



Styles of Bokator involves the systematic and flowing motions of the

observed Natural movements of many of Our World Creatures. A rather

complex though interconnected System of Self-Defence results. Conditioning

and Training Exercises/Routines may include:


Bag, Sand, Wood and Rock for the Hands.

Bag and Wood for the Rest.

To pound. Repeatedly.


Trees in the Main.

When of Yore.



BOKATOR is a Cambodian Khmer Martial Arts Tradition and System. Also.

Of Yore.



Literally means…to “…pound a Lion…”.


The styling of the Nomen may indicate and reflect a Natural Fact.

Lions only Attack Elephants on rare occasions. Famine, Sickness and Dis ease.

The Young, the Main Target.


In response the Elephant uses it’s bulk mass and Community as support. Also. Charging,

Slamming and Body Mass pivots, Trunk Swings, Trumpetings and so on. Quite

fast paced when disturbed or during migrations to Waters. Naturally strong, great

strength in numbers too. To


and fro motions to gain or retreat. Very few Natural Predators.



Contests of Strength, Might and Fighting ability were popular among the Mughal

(…Mogul…) Emperors. The Battle over when One Elephant grounded the Other. Elephants

were rarely hurt in any serious manner, though the Mahouts (…Trainer/Rider…)

followed Tradition, having said


Goodbyes to Fam. As they tended not to survive. Such Bouts and Falls.


(…There are occasional Modern such Issues with Elephants and Trainers.

As with Phlai Ekasit; The Elephantine Star of A Martial Arts Movie Series.


A Modern adapted Version of the Martial Elephant Legend and Tradition

can be found within this and that: THE PROTECTOR/ONG BAK Movie Series.

Starring Phlai Ehasit, Elephant/Actor and Tony Jaa Martial Artist/Actor…)


Only some of Bokator’s Techniques and Methods utilise the Animal Forms as

others use a systematic practical fight approach.



Animal forms include those of Snake, Horse, Eagle, Crane, Monkey,

Lion, Crocodile, Crab, Duck

and Elephant. Elephantine Self-Defence. That is. Therein. Bokator.


Locks, Holds, Grabs, Strikes, Submissions and Weaponry within

Bokator’s Styles and Forms. Forms that create a close Hand-to-Hand Combat Style

and System whereby much of the Body is used for both Defence and (Counter) Attacks.

A full-on Body Combat System.


The current Uniform reflecting that of Tradition with the still prevailing

Colored Scarves, Cords a part of the accepted System.


Leg Movements similar to the Modern Kick-Boxing though the Combat System

more Martial oriented. War-like that is. Stick and Sword, Short and Long;

are the main Weapons

though many others incorporated and somewhat dependent on the particular

Master’s Knowledge.


Elbow, Knee Feints and Strikes. Leg, Shin Kicks.

Grappling, Groundworks and more.

An Ancient Art and Traditional Ways.


A King. King Jayavarman vii; Khmer Ruler of the 12th Century

an avid Practitioner of such Combat Arts. Arts that many of

the Angkorian Dynasties used to dominate these and their Lands


of Our Times and Places. Of Yore.



The despotic and nefarious KHMER ROUGE Leaders of the 1970’s

actively targeted such Martial Lineages and Masters thereof.


A recurring Theme in many Olden Ways… Btw.


Bokator has experienced a bit of a boost and recharge of late

with the surviving Master Practitioners now fairly free to continue


the study and pursuit of this Ancient Art.



A Book detailing History, Origins and Traditions with over 10 Years of Research by


70-year-old Grand-master San Kim Sean has been presented to UNESCO

with co-operation from the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC).



A “…First…” National Bokator Seminar and Competition was held in 2006.

Teams from 9 Provinces displayed and tested Methods and Ways.
