The following is a translation Tenchijin Ryaku no Maki section on Kihon Happo is provided by Mark Lithgow, the original piece was published by Hatsumi-Soke in one of his annual Shidoshi newsletters.

Remember these are drills more than techniques. The Kihon Happo are drills to develop your base for Taijutsu. Kihon Happo does not mean basics, but rather base or foundation. They should not be viewed as beginner techniques but rather as foundational drills that we practice throughout our martial careers.
