    This is just sooooo wrong

    This is the second sickest sex story I have ever heard. Read more here if you dare! The thing is, even though this guy has not touched a human in a sexual way, I worry about the fact he has twice killed in order to get his jollies. There is no way I want to bet that his little kinks might...

    Recognizing, avoiding danger

    I was going through some old magazines and making notes. In the Febuary 2000 issue of Hiden magazine I found the following quote by Hatsumi in an interview. It is not a new idea for most of us. We have heard it said in various ways at various times. But what about concrete examples? Each...

    Rudolph the outcast?

    It is Christmas morning here in Japan and I was thinking about that famous song we all know. Am I the only one disturbed at the message it is sending? Let me sum up what I hear when I listen to it. Rudolph was a freak. Everyone hated him and cast him out of their group. But when only he could...

    Do people just HAVE to try to encourage others....

    A fellow martialtalk member brought this to my attention. First of all, it does not look like the guy holding the gun really is doing his best to shoot the other guy. I think the whole thing is staged. But the way they try to be macho by using a loaded gun is just so wrong on so many levels.

    Hikan Densho Series

    A little announcement. Hatsumi has recently started to release from Quest a new series in his Bujinkan series. These are called the Hikan Densho. I should point out that he has made a pun and the charecter for "sho" of Densho is not as it normally is. Instead of "transmision writings" the new...

    The weird ones

    Something in another thread by Bydand kind of has me wondering. What kind of stories can you tell of people who set off your alarms when they came in looking for "ninja training." I live in Japan and most of the nuts seem to give up before they get here. But I would love to hear some...

    You want to know why I have so many traps in my yard? You want to know why I keep a watch dog in my room? You want to know why everyone who knows me says I am paranoid? Watch this to see why!

    I feel used and dirty

    Ok, I really am a nice guy that tries to help people. I try to give people what they need. Sometimes that is a good kick in the pants. But sometimes they just need some information or a resource. So, on another forum a guy asks about getting some books by Fujita Seiko- the guy who was a...

    Looking for info on a style- even the name!

    Hello, I studied for a while under a guy who came to Japan from China and taught a martial art here. I can give you the charecters he used for the name, but not how to pronounce them in Chinese. He had to go back to China and I was wondering if there was any information about the style. But I...

    Anyone with questions for sumo wrestlers?

    Hi folks. There is a Sumo stable in my city. The mayor once was with us when we were drinking and asked me what I thought would be a great activity for the internationalization of the city and what non-Japanese in the city would get a lot out of. I suggested a tour of the stable. Well, it...

    The Reality of Weapons

    My teacher, Hiroshi Nagase, always stresses that this art was built around the reality of weapons. We use them, we train to go against them and even though we do unarmed stuff most of the time, there is always a connection with weapons. I have been thinking of something for a long time and kind...

    Reccomended movies

    I am putting together an order by mail of some DVDs. I can get and watch a lot of movies here in Japan, but non- English movies rarely have English options. I am getting The Brotherhood of the Wolf (French) and am thinking of getting "So Close" after stumbling across the following clip...

    You would not believe me if you did not see it with your own eyes

    Some of you may wonder why I spend so much time on martialtalk. Well, I can't stand to hang around westerners who can't be bothered to learn the language here (i.e. most of them) and this kind of shows what a lot of Japanese television is like. Do you think I can make this stuff up...

    Different Kihon

    I thought I would throw this out now.... I got a PM from someone who seems to have joined here just to send it to me after seeing my rant thread. Here is the part that gives me pause. It does not sound exactly right to me. Different people do the kihon slightly differently. But if they...

    Need a Borg toast

    A few months ago, I took a trip to America and spent the first few days in Las Vegas. While there I went to the Star Trek Experience. In the shop I got a freezer mug with the Klingon emblem on it and a pair of shot glasses, one with Klingon, and the other with the Borg symbol on it. I know...

    Holocaust denier running for office in USA on Democratic ticket! It is not all that disturbing that the democratic party refuses to denounce and supports this guy. They do have people in a wide enough range to include both ex-KKK member Robert Byrd and Jesse Jackson. They say they support...

    The rant thread

    I am not known for keeping my opinions to myself. Here we go folks. Feel free to add some of your own. First of all, I was recently made aware of some folks trying to get together and share their Shinden Fudo ryu notes in an internet forum so that they could all have a better idea of what...
