    Realistic Training !!

    [/B] Mr. Roley, I am not saying you are talking about me here, but just in case, or in case someone else might think you are, I would like to say a few things. I truly do not see how I am forcing my views on anyone here. I mean, it is a discussion forum is it not? I also assumed it...

    Realistic Training !!

    Mr. Roley, thank you for your post. I suppose I misunderstood this forum then. I assumed that it was just "x-kan" talk I didn't know it was limited to Japan style training. So, sumimasen to anyone I offended with my posts. However I do see topics in this forum that speak about training...

    Any T.B.A. members here?

    I agree! Sifu Inosanto is one of the most amazing people I have ever met, and so kind hearted, (maybe too kind in some cases if you know what I mean...) Take care,

    Realistic Training !!

    I must agree with you on this one Dom. Seems weird... Also: This is EXACTLY what I was saying on another thread (you know the one...) When I teach Tanemura Sensei's arts, I do it "by the book"! I do however have a Jissen-Kai class where we drill and exercise and use Takamatsu-den...

    Vintage 1959 Video Clips of Hatsumi Sensei!

    Nice clips, I have this VHS but it is 1986 not 1959 :) 1959 would be REALLy cool! BTW Vol. 2 of this collection is even better IMO...

    Any T.B.A. members here?

    Hello, my experience with TBA and Arjan Chai was mostly through seminars from the lates 80's on through the 90's During that period of time I went to many Inosanto hartsell JKD "concept" seminars. Also video tapes. We did Chai's TBA style Muay Thai at my Gym during all of those years. I have...

    Any T.B.A. members here?

    Thanks for the answer. I myself "came up" through the TBA (instructors) Arjan Chai looked pretty good to me. But thanks non-the-less :0 Anyone else here from TBA?

    Genbukan Training Methodology!

    FWIW, This one looks suspect. No patches on the gi which is VERY strange, and the taijutsu looks very different. Just my opinion, do you know the name of the Dojo?

    Hello, thank you. It was intended for the x-kans. While it can be argued that the subject matter is universal the audience was specific. Regards,

    Unreal... It is like the twilight zone! people interpreting as they see fit, not reading. The list goes on. Put the topic where ever you wish folks. I think it is pretty clear now what the "Ninjutsu" forum is for. Enjoy everybody LOL! Wow...

    Offtopic posts from "Don't Be Afraid"

    Where in this WHOLE thread did I say any of this? And who is talking about competing? It sounds to me that you have some issues with some things, you see some words that you lump into trigger categories for yourself and get all ruffled and flustered. Try READING what was actually said and...

    Don't be afraid...

    Hi, I never understood why many people automatically lump randori with sport and MMA (Not saying you are btw, I think you made a good post) Randori/sparring is a part of most TRADITIONAL martial arts I can think of. lets see, here is a list of traditional arts that do randori or spar...

    Don't be afraid...

    From the Jinenkan thread you started: Quote from Dale Joseph. Just wanted to point out once again the power of reading into things and how it colors perception. I was in fact using correct respectful terms. The Bujinkan is NOT a Ryu. It is a Kan. Hatsumi Massaki is the KANCHO of the Bujinkan...

    Don't be afraid...

    I truly appreciate this post. You hit the nail on the head. Thank you for saying this, especially when you have opened yourself up to abuse for having done so. You didn't have to and you did. Thank you. Sincerely,

    Don't be afraid...

    Incorrect. Your methods and Tanemura Sensei's methods are VERY different "for the record" Also for the record, did you know Jinenkan people do Randori as does their Kancho? No.. You may not include "your" training methods nor "conceptual ideas" with those of my Soke. As they are not the...

    Don't be afraid...

    Sigh... As far as incorrect, that is the way I speak, I do not feel it is disrespectful to say incorrect when something is.. You cannot hear my voice or see my face or feel me, you are reading into everything and deeming it disrespectful and worse yet saying I a trying to mask my true...

    Speaking of the friendly respect thing that is supposed to be here on this forum.. What is with all the posts that have NOTHING to do with the topic? Interesting.. Double standards?

    Don't be afraid...

    I agree with you too much sparring could be very counter productive. So can too much kata only, too much henka only etc.. Balance neh?

    Don't be afraid...

    Incorrect. I do not think *I* know the "true" way to train Budo Taijutsu. I suppose that hatsumi San would be the once for that as it is his creation not mine. I was never stating that at all! I was however stating that BEYOND systems Kans, Styles, there are people! And that each PERSON...

    Genbukan Training Methodology!

    Hello, I think that would be a waste of time personally. Maybe if I had nothing else to do and was bored, but that is not the case. ;) I mean kata are kata.. I hope you understand my point.. Sincerely

    Don't be afraid...

    Instead of going post by post and trying to clear up misconceptions (I just don't have time) I will just sum up my thoughts instead. Randori in my mind does NOT = sports. It is a training method like others, with weakness and strength like all others. But in MY opinion, required for training...

    Mr Roley, you are correct, the title could cause these feelings to arise, and for that I am sorry. It was written tongue-in-cheek. I tend to try to wax poetic in my posts Sumimasen. But I understand your feelings on this, I do not think you or others are afraid, SOME may be, but I feel in...

    Don't be afraid...

    Hello, respectfully, I would like to say that what you know of the genbukan is very limited, as that is the way the genbukan is. So seeing things online, believe me you are not seeing much. Talking to Genbukan people? There is MUCH they will not tell you. The ONLY way to know what the Genbukan...

    In my opinion I feel it is RUDE to talk about such things. *I* NEVER said anything like this. This is a Ben Cole tactic he has used for years. It is rude.. IMO... The thread should move away from this subject...
