Thank you Brian for the video. Ed s a very gifted speaker.
Thanks for sharing, Brian.
I love Ed. <3 <3
I try and train with him as often as I can.
Very nice video. He is an excellent speaker.
Yes, that is something he can do.
Thanks for posting that clip Brian.
Implying somthing here, are we?
Brian excellent find. It is nice to see the elderly get involved in self defense. I remember a hand out that talked about elderly self defense and how they should wet themselves and go into a huddle position.
The Cane he is using he designs those right?
Yes those are canes that Ed designed and sells. They are also inexpensive and very durable.
And sharp. Don't forget sharp.
Hell yes Ed gave me one of this as a gift in Montreal 2 years ago. It's one of our favorite toys, nice to open teens eyes to what a senior could do to them LOL.
Oh yeah, it's always the last and most surprising lesson the young gym bucks have to learn:
Never fight an old guy. Since he knows he can't "fight" you, he knows he's gonna have to just KILL you.
Great clip! Thank you for posting it!
Good luck to anyone attempting that with his arms.
Great video , thanks for sharing Brian !
The video is cool. Thanks for posting.
Can I ask a question of anyone who knows? Is 15th dan a level that exists in most ninjitsu? Doesn't seem like the vast majority of Japanese styles go beyond 10 dan. What is a 15th dan? How would you accomplish it?
This is not the case in the Genbukan, the highest rank is 9th Dan and then you can also receive menkyo licences in the individual ryu ha. However, with each test there is a public check test that must be preformed.
There are no individuals with the rank of 9th Dan as of yet.
That's unique to the Bujinkan -- see http://www.bujinkansf.org/faq/#ranks
