    g.i.joe rise of cobra : snake eyes vs storm shadow fight sequence is sick !

    Bad movie in my opinion. Ripped off tons of movies. Anyone see the day the Earth stood still with Keanu Reeves with the little metal eating bugs? Yep G.I.Joe took it too. To many movie cliche' too much bad acting like Cobra commander and Destro running out holding each other like a married...

    has your reason for taking MA changed over time ?

    I started off learning Boxing. I went to a school for deliquents so you better know how to fight. Later on I got interested in Ninpo taijutsu(the philosophy I was not really interested in the Martial application I found it to be flawed.) I got into Baguazhang,Xingyiquan,Taijiquan not for martial...

    Perhaps I may have misjudged......

    People don't understand where Slice is coming from. So because of that people talk. The fights down here are ways to make money(instead of selling drugs and robbing people) people are trying to use a skill they have to put food on the table and turn a bad neighborhood into something...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    Ok you can not defend against the Sucker punch thats why they call it the Sucker punch because you can't see it coming. X-kan is not going to train you to defend against the Sucker punch no art is going to teach you how to defend the sucker punch because you can't see it. As for street...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    An assault-A sudden violent attack Fight-combat Attack-Begin fighting Are you applying that an assault comes at only close range? Or are you refering to an assault like a sucker punch or ambush like the article was saying? I am guessing you mean someone who just rushes at you like a madman. If...

    I can't make this stuff up....

    I do the opposite!! Sometimes when I am in a store someone for some reason think I work there and ask me for something I then help them rudely and then tell them I am a supervisor it was funny.

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    Chris, I have nothing against the X-kan I have nothing against the techniques. If you throw a jab at an opponent he will either move or block this is defending. If you try to put a joint lock on an opponent he will resist this is also defending. The article is flawed and I will post all the...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    I will bow out. I have made my point the X-kan in majority do not train realistic others have come to the same conclusion. If you have not well good luck with your training.

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    To illustrate the point I will use the Ippon Seoi nage then. Look here: http://www.genbukan.org/cgi-bin/site.pl?kokusai_techniques Though its not Ippon persay close enough. In Judo you would learn Ippon the same way: So nothing wrong with the technique both X-kan and Judo teach it the same...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    Most of the videos teach how it is done in a typical class. The Bujinkan dojo I went to teaches the same. 3 Genbukan dojos I have been to teach the same way only stricter. Also many people on other forums have said similar conclusions making the videos proof of the claims. Most of the techniques...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    But those who do train alive is like what 20% where 80% train dead? For every clip we find of alive training we find the majority doesn't. There are quite alot of people who trained in the X-Kan(myself included) who can testify that the majority of X-Kan training is dead/stale,no...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    Thats right they learn the techniques but do not pressure test it. You almost never see this in the X-kan: This is pressure testing. They learned the the techniques slowly and now they are testing it.

    Long are the days of bad 80's music and Ninjutsu assasins: Notice his http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHXUxw1NsLI&feature=related Some of the themes are there but similar to Toshindo. Is it bad,wrong no not really it is not traditional and seems to work more boxing and Western arts it...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    Lets take two examples:Ippon Seoi nage both Judo and X-kan have this technique. Both start out teaching Ippon slowly maybe no resistance so Uke can learn the technique. This is where the similaries end. Judo will then go into Randori and pressure test Ippon while the X-kan will just learn the...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    Just to address Steven Jennum won 2 fights out of the 5 he fought. He won mostly with grappling that looks more like wrestling or BJJ he was a student of Robert Bussey so clearly there is a wide difference. Scott Morris record 2 wins one lose...

    The Effectiveness Of BBT.

    I am going to show examples of Genbukan training: http://www.genbukan.org/cgi-bin/site.pl?genbukan_techniques As you can see the techniques are done with no pressure testing causing a false sense of being able to apply said technique in a realistic fashion. This type of training is what...

    Question about my potential sensei

    Not at all Jon-Bhoy your input is most appreciated I thought He gave Rod rank in the Bujinkan(4th dan) and then Rod gave him rank in Juko Kai kinda of like you scratch my back i'll scratch yours. Then Hatsumi gave Rod a honorary 10th degree which Rod took advantage of which led Hatsumi to...

    Question about my potential sensei

    He created his own art called Shizenden which he refers to himself as Dai Soke. He and his student Rod who is a grandmaster of his own system of Combat Ki seem to be in the business of promoting each other kinda of like you scratch my back I will scratch yours....Anyway He may be or was a Shihan...

    When Hatsumi Soke passes

    If answering is explaining Japanese mannerism then yes I answered the question. If answering with explaining what will happen,what I think will happen then no I did not answer the question. I also want to point out that if a question was asked to a Japanese they might be silent which in itself...

    Anyone ever get serious second thoughts/ doubts about the school that they chose?

    It does not matter what YOU think is too much because you are not the other person dealing with the things in question. Everyone has their limits and there is no reason to have your arm or leg broken because someone can not control themselves and even more so have a teacher who does not take...

    When Hatsumi Soke passes

    Most people would not answer the question. Most people would say it is rude and inconsiderate or they may just be silent and walk away. If we are going to ask something in regards to something Japanese then we have to put in the factor on how the Japanese deal with issues like this because most...

    When Hatsumi Soke passes

    The way your post came it sounded as if he is not really making a profit when in fact he is making a huge profit which as Yorkshirelad said money and power. I did not say $50 a year I said $50 per a test. The rules state you have to wait 30 classes after a kyu so roughly 3 months between ranks...

    When Hatsumi Soke passes

    I think its $30 membership fee then a certification fee which is $30 and up then a test fee which is $20 so we are looking at $50. Cost to ship paper to Japan $2 cost to ship paper from Japan 200yen($2.00) Ink-50 cents or so per use(not that expensive) Paper $100 yen($1 not that expensive) so...
