    Hokko No Kamae/SPEAR

    As one of the Defensive Tactics Instructors for the Sheriff's Office that I work for, I was sent to attend an Instructor's course for Tony Blauer's SPEAR system. I was kinda tickled by the fact that to me its nothing more than a modified Hokko No Kamae. Don't get me wrong the material taught it...

    Why Budo Taijutsu.

    Well there are a few and I do mean few, instructors out there that have learned "some" of the actual ninjutsu aspect that you are referring to. Those instructors were training from the early 80s when they did teach some of that stuff. Nowadays even they won't teach that stuff to just anyone, if...

    If anyone is interested there is a TV show on the History Channel named "Warriors", where a Special Forces guy goes around and learns all the fighting skills of ancient warriors. There was one episode on the Samurai and to my surprise they had one of the Japanese Shihans demonstrating the Jo and...

    Yeah anything with Frank Dux you take it to the fiction section. The man had Soldier of Fortune Magazine spotlight his fraudulent use of military decorations, and his wild claims of being a C.I.A. Officer when he was a Motor Transport Reserve Marine. But the Kokuryukai was a Japanese...
