    Ha Ha Check this out...

    Tez, first of all I want you to know that I do not "laugh" at someone or something because they're women. I work in Law Enforcement and I can attest to working with some very tough women, nothing but respect. But if my title somehow offended you, for that I do apologize, although I do believe...

    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...

    Just received the book yesterday...its seems ok. I think I'll do like you did Chris I'll just keep it and use it as a comparison with other Densho interpretations that I've aquired over the years. But all in all its a pretty good book by what I've read so far.

    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...

    History Channel's "Warriors"

    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...

    Shinobi no mono Magazine

    Well in America there is no governing standard for authentication of traditional martial arts. So Ms. Jacobson is free to teach and claim whatever it is she claims. I don't agree with what she does claiming Tomo Ryu Ninjutsu Menkyo Kaiden. And I do believe that she is misleading alot of people...

    The 'stabless' knife comes to England

    This is crazy I mean when I was worked in the jail I used to find shanks made from plastic spoons and toothbrushes that they sharpened on the concrete. They can make a safety knife all they want but that won't stop anyone from trying to kill someone if their mental state is at that level.

    When Self Defense Becomes Murder

    First of all I what I don't get from society is when someone who stands up for themselves and refuse to be a victim they are labeled as vigilantes and such. This pharmacists was forced into this situation...and when he took the fight to the perp now its overkill....I beg to differ, I'd say thats...

    Officer discretion and "professional courtesy"

    In the state where I live I am able to "flag" my tags on my personal vehicles as Law Enforcement. Which is a safeguard to LEO from people trying to obtain their home address via Tag Info. So with that said I've only been pulled over in my personal vehicle once and the officer never got out of...

    What is that group claiming to be Christian ninja?

    I think maybe the original poster may be referring to the "*******" group. If I'm not mistaken they claim that Christianity influenced ninjutsu or something to that extent....................:rolleyes:

    what's the difference? Gyokko Ryu Koshijutsu --- Gyokkushin Ryu Ninjutsu

    But wasn't Gyokko Ryu once referred to as Gyokko Ryu Ninpo? I'm not sure which book I got that info from but if my memories serves me correctly it was first known as Gyokko Ryu Ninpo (or Ninpo Taijutus?) Gyokko Ryu Shitojutsu and then finally Gyokko Ryu Kosshijutsu....So if it was once referred...

    Banke Shinobinoden

    Yeah I just saw a little posting of that Koka Ryu seminar on the current issure of Black Belt Magazine. The article didn't elaborate on the training other than the seminar being Jinichi Kawakami's first visit to the U.S. and that he is a Koka/Iga Soke of Ninjutsu according to the Iga Ueno Museum.
