simple and immediate - Joko's style

by Elihu Genmyo Smith

The important point about Joko's style of practice was that it emphasized what is simple and immediate.

Simple means that everyone as they are can practice - it is not dependent upon some special abilities, past training or skills.

Immediate is right now, come as you are, not a matter of what you have prepared or the conditions and circumstances.
