    I obviously overlooked this question months ago. I hope this post will prompt others to consider answering it. I could definitely use some advice on this issue. How can I better develop nagare? Is is just a matter of time invested in training and it will come or are there specific drills...

    Mr Hayes' original practices of ninjutsu

    Dude! Would you please stop?! I can certainly appreciate your zeal for An-Shu Hayes' teachings, but to make statements for which you have no proof will just bring more attack on you. I train in To-Shin Do LDS as well, but, I try not to think I know it all just because I've read the SKH site...

    "Fire" Frustrations

    Sounds too late indeed. The fire feeling is about being so aware and connected that you explode with your defense before the attacker has a chance to get his off.

    Jutoshi, any chance we can get Mr. Maienza on here to share his wealth of knowledge? You've already answered a bunch of questions and sounds like Jizaikan is a great MA. Thanks for sharing what you have already!

    Something Odd

    yeah, is this guy against Ninjutsu as a whole? Bujinkan Budo? To-Shin Do? It's really hard to tell. He comes on bashing one school and calls another entirely different art shady referring to it's Grandmaster that is a chiropractor. What was the point of this guys post? Kinda confused here...

    Boulder Quest Center

    You will most definitely get a better reply on To-Shin Do only forums such as Quest-L or Carolina Bujindo forums. Most To-Shin Do practitioners frequent those forums more regularly for what seem to me, obvious. Personally, I've not trained with any from there so I apologize I cannot answer...

    Quest centers

    I believe Michael Stinson is also a member of this board, or at least he was at one time. I have seen Quest Centers also allow a free day to sit in and train during a session to get a feel of things. If they offer that, then try it out - I am confident you will enjoy it.
