    Hall of Fame?

    I personally also include "banquet" as an optional fee. If you don't need to be there in person to accept your award as was the last HOF that I was able to attend with my husband then the banquet is optional. The association involved runs a great tournament circuit all year with trophies and...

    Detainee Missions in Iraq

    Same here - good support but still going back and forth to Afghanistan and Iraq. God knows where else we'll be in the next few years if things keep up either.

    Challenging the dojang instructor

    I have only placed cuffs in training - I have had to restrain non-compliant terrorists by hand though until the MPs could get there with zip ties as well as follow orders for chemical restraints. Usually though I was the one that seemed to be the most suited to being able to talk someone down...

    Challenging the dojang instructor

    Thank you for the history of the term. Let me restate my point then since I did not realize the specific term was copyrighted. Honestly, I think any master can basically talk an even minded individual down using a cool tone of voice and the right reasoning which is what i was alluding to. And...

    I can definetly see this - maybe I am just different - to me if I want to know something and someone invites me to pick up a phone and i live in their area code - I am going to do that. I realize that is the person I am and it is differences in this world that makes this world interesting. ::):

    Hall of Fame?

    I think it depends on the Hall of Fame and the award - I am certainly not saying that there are not some out there like the ones that you have mentioned. I went last year to a big Hall of Fame Banquet. My husband had not even had membership yet in the group but he was approached by one of them...

    Challenging the dojang instructor

    First - Does "friend" need meds. You may wish to seek psychiatric help for him if you truly care about him. Second- In Eastern ways it is not uncommon in the more traditional schools for masters to take care of other masters if there is an issue. My understanding of this though is that no...

    Detainee Missions in Iraq

    I know over here the VA(Department of Veterans Affairs) has been pretty good about getting us screened. The ARmy has too. The problem is some of the people that are still in don't want to have it because they think they will be looked down it for having it. Even though the military community...

    Oh and I think I finally did the right thing - I got off the thread after saying my last words - hey I am a woman. I plan on hitting ignore if I hear anything further - I will not change minds and I know the truth - I would not have pledged the rest of my life to someone without making very sure...

    Budoiko Ryu & Ninjutsu history (was Frauds,Fakes,Conman,Scam artists)

    Thank you very much to all you for teaching me that everything that the rest of the Budo community has said is completely right about the WESTERN version of Bujinkan. I feel very very sorry for you as you will never know exactly what it is that you are supposed to be learning. If you can't name...

    That is a very good suggestion - I often told I must remember I cannot write as I talk and I cannot talk as I write. Thank you.

    Budoiko Ryu & Ninjutsu history (was Frauds,Fakes,Conman,Scam artists)

    Actually I wasn't referring to you Cryozombie I was referring to the guy started this. But since you all have to attack in packs I think that someone that lived for four years themselves in full immersion of Japanese culture would know far better gaijin.

    Thank you I started a thread - I don't know where its going to go - hopefully positively - but it is in General Talk under Detainee Missions in Iraq. Someone had mentioned I should share. Thank you. I guess I wasn't getting far enough into the sub directory.

    Detainee Missions in Iraq

    Someone asked me to start this thread. I will caution you up front that I can't discuss everything because I am not allowed to so if I seem very general about some of the stories please understand. I was at Camp Bucca for nine months. At that point in my life I had had three years of training in...
