    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.

    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...

    As only being a Nidan (in the Bujinkan) you have much to learn. Ask the higher levels and they will teach you as they see fit BY BUJINKAN WAYS .... UNFORTUANATELY YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Budo,

    Yes, and first starters most of you may or may not know that the proper Densho usually spans 100-125 years approx. Depending on # of students. If you look yes that number does match up and so does everything else. And yes, even Anshu Steven Hayes recognizes her and gives her rank - Anshu Steven...

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

    Thank you for your best of luck in training. My training is going well minus a foot injury picked up last night - minor but enough to keep me out of the tournament tomorrow. The Xray says the periosteum is pulled enough to show up on the xray but it will heal - hey I landed the kick. Anyway...

    Thank you very much - I will start this thread I think I saw the correct forum I just have to careful because we are only ALLOWED to talk very superficially - a lot of those detainees are still in long term confinement. Thank you, Heisaa

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

    Oh and I looked at this from Don Roley that was also pointed out yesterday: First he did not say all. Second he said non-Japanese. Third he is speaking about those "without a link to the past." His master trained under under Takamatsu Sensei. While I cannot say for certain how many of the...

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

    So I did some homework since you are right. I have not given enough resources to argue some of my points. One point that was made earlier by someone here was that I had said that the Ninja started off as peasants and farmers and were later joined by defunct or defecting Samurai. This was a point...

    Thank you - like I said - very happily married times three months - so still honeymooning. Also just moved down here to the Keys. Neither one of us are exactly kids though so we both knew exactly what we were getting into. You are right there is a psychological element to every relationship and...

    I prefer sending them for a box of grid squares or self inserting IV solution. Thank you for your kind words. I do assure you just as I have that we have said is true - it is just that not all lineages are out in the open and some families do have their "black sheep." I think when you look and...

    Again it was not me who brought those certificates in. I was talking about our experiences, my training experience, and the experience of running a school. I have questioned him on it. I have gotten the answers. I am satisfied. Secondly, I have been there when native Japanese who are friends AND...

    But considering I have not heard of one phone call or email yet than I am wondering if your motivation is really the truth?

    Well it did come from Japan. There is nothing to be worried about. Like I said if you have any questions of this nature please feel free to address them to my teacher. He will gladly answer them.

    Descendants of "Fakes, Frauds, Con Men..."

    If I had only had to respond to what I had said or not said yesterday I would be fine with everything. Unfortunately the way all this started was I mentioned to someone who was opening school that my before we opened my husband used to contract as a "troubleshooter" and even did his own...
