Bugs walk 4 Jo-Ha-Kyu of Bugs Walk

<Jo> Bugs crawling


Bugs walk is the method to transform "Weakened body".
What is the Weakened body?
Hijikata said "Butoh is a corpse(=dead body) trying desperately to stand."
How is it possible for us to become it?
Bugs walk guides you by a special "Jo-Ha-Kyu" to toransform the Weakened body.
When we understand it, and follow the Jo-Ha-Kyu of transformation exactly, everybody can transform the Weakened body which is the most fundamental body of Hijikata Butoh.
Bugs walk is Hijikata's will which he left for the future students of Butoh. It has the most standard Jo-Ha-Kyu which has five stages as "Jo-Ha1-Ha2-Ha3-Kyu".
