I try to understand the physical relation between Taihen and Tai jutsu, in order to set up my physical training. Is it true to say that the physical skills to perform Taihenjutsu encompasses those required for Taijutsu?
I hope I'm clear, my english is not that good.
It's up to you. :)
And it's even more odd for me. The Bujinkan in France is torn between factions who want the power over maybe 800 people. It's ridiculous, but also a shame for so called "Men of example". Oops I think I stepped on a landmine :uhyeah:.
I tried to say that my teacher and many people i've met are telling that Ishizuka Sensei is a great teacher, and it's enough for me.
What's bugging me is the fact that its very difficult to trust someone in France.
Right, my heart and my brain (and a little bit of google) told me that the case of Ishizuka Sensei is something recurring in the Bujinkan. So I decided to stop searching and trust the word of many. It's a good teacher and Basta.
Accept my apologies for the noise.
@ Nimravus, my teacher isn't the a famous student of Ishizuka Sensei. This student introduced him, but nothing else.
@ Bydand, the weather is so ugly in my beautifull country, so full of cheese and children quarells that I prefer get the info and make a long work of reflexion. Now for me, it's...
Misses and Misters,
First of all I'd like to apologize for bringing what is certainly a political question in here.
In a report of japan training from a french person, I can read some kind of underlying non-argumented dissing of Ishizuka Sensei.
The question I ask: is Ishizuka sensei badly...
Someone shall bite and kick and punch my face but...
The advice about the teacher is highly valuable. About the art in itself.
The Majority of the schools teached in the Bujinkan are not that different form the classical Jujutsu schools (very roughly said).
The difference lies in the spirit...
Now i've got a doubt bout the name. Nyoi Bo is the name of the staff of the Monkey King, the bo has the ability to change it's size according to the will of its owner. So, is this the real name of this weapon?
I try to comprehend "Ninjutsu" as a whole: History, Philosophy, Technique, Sociology and more. To understand the things a little more, I need to go to Japan of course, and I also need books.
Can you point some material that should be usefull to me? I can read English, German...
I plan to have a little training every morning, some kind of body conditionning. I think the better thing might be to do the Junan Taiso. In the version I got. I've the Junan Undo no Gata. Are there more Katas in the Junan Taiso?
Many thanks for your reading, best regards.
I'm Von Bek from France, ninth kyu in the Bujinkan. I'm interrested in all things japanese, most of all, history until the Tokugawa shogunate. I've read the few books available in french (as for ninjutsu) and now I seek for good material in english. I stumbled here during my search...
