    Training in Japan, a few tips!

    You seem to think that other people have infinite time to spend in front of the computer to help other people. Some of whom, as Bigshadow pointed out, will not even do a little research of their own. Seriously, I am considering just closing my accounts here and at e-budo after some of the...

    Training in Japan, a few tips!

    Shawn Grey over at Kutaki just posted this and I was tempted to get up on my chair and cheer. So folks, treat the guys living here like human beings instead of web sites that exist to serve you. It gets really annoying from time to time. And if they do help, show some thanks! I have said it...

    Training in Japan, a few tips!

    Just a general note- try to avoid the police in Japan if at all possible. There are officers here that are not racist, corrupt and/or thugs with guns. But don't count on being able to find one.

    Your Mom Was Wrong: Horseplay Is An Important Part Of Development

    Here is an interesting quote by Dave Grossman in his book On Combat that I am reading now. Something to think about, eh?

    March on the Pentagon

    If you were surprised by the Socialist presence at the rally, you should read the book Unholy Alliance- Radical Islam and the American Left by David Horowitz- who is himself one of the founders of the New Left movement in the 60s. The communist community in America has always been against...

    Let me get this straight, you are saying that people who mamage to get through 12 years of free education and still do not have basic skills should be then given even more free education in the hope that this time it will be different? Either the case is the free educational system is a...

    Who is against this?

    I did not say that. But somehow there has been a move to getting them out of their cells and interacting with each other. You oppose tha, I oppose tha, but since the time of Alcatraz that has been the case. Why is that? Why not keep them seperated from each other in their cells? At some point...

    Yes, so truely sad in so many ways. Those who try to put getting into power second to doing the best for America are left in the dust by those who work solely for the purpose of getting political power. Ever read The Prince? But as we can all see, it is effective.

    Budo Taijutsu in Japan

    1- Case by case. Every instrucor differs in their policy. 2- IMO- if you have no experience in the Bujinkan you should seek out a guy named Someya. He will teach you the basics if you ask. Just wait for a time when there is not a lot of visitors wanting to be shown more advanced stuff...

    Argentinian TV show with Budo Taijutsu.

    This is kind of good example of dealing with the media. It seems obvious to me that the instructor (Iglesias) wanted to deal mainly with modern, unarmed stuff. But the reporter is the one who was able to determine what questions to be asked and what would be edited out and what would be left...

    Who is against this?

    Well, you see the government is in charge of taking people and putting them away for a long, long time. That is not something you or I can do. If we did, if everyone did that, it would be chaos. I know I would love to send away a few people who irritate me, but we need an objective source to do...

    What IS a Ninja?

    Well, not quite- but close. Please try to consider that a lot of what you have read and heard about ninjutsu would probably make modern Japanese laugh. Hollywood has a lot to do with what non-Japanese think about ninja. (Oh yeah, and Ashida Kim and company.) And of course, what modern...

    Who is against this?

    Ok. So why go with more interaction between prisoners? More time in their cell means less chance of riots, attacks, etc. It also would require less people to watch them. Wouldn't that help save money as well?

    Lord forbid someone would admit that they were on a fishing expeidition by saying there were no cats. That is one of the problems that the left faces over things like this. They have been screaming about scandels and secret take overs for so long that it is getting obvious that they are just...

    Who is against this?

    Mike, What is the reason for it not being used (or a similar system) in other prisons? One prisoner in a cell with a roll up bed. Tables brought into the central area and food served there while all the guards watch. Then repeat per cell block.

    What IS a Ninja?

    No, but neither term was in much use historically. No, you are off the mark. There seems to be no attempt by the ninja to make them seem rather supernatural. That would make them a threat. No, popular culture during the Edo period seems to be a big source for the idea that they were...

    Who is against this?

    What about locking them in a cell by themselves for most of the day, except when small groups of them are allowed out to eat? They can socialize for an hour or two, exercise to radio calethenics piped into the cells but otherwise be locked down. This would also probably cut down on rapes in...

    Actually, I think equal treatment under the law is the key to avoiding a dictatorship. One of the biggest things that troubled me with the Monica thing was that Clinton lied under oath for which people have gone to jail for, and yet the general public seemed to think that it was not important...

    Question that I hope someone can answer.... Is it true that the courts have ruled that it is their right to have a television in their cell with cable if they want?

    This is just sooooo wrong

    It was off the list before this. The wife made the choice. But seriously, I have decided to only move back to states that have on-line registries of sex offenders. Do they have that in Wisconsin? If so, this guy would be on it with the reasons for his being there explained, right? I don't...

    That is hardly the type of thing that even raises an eyebrow on capital hill. If you want to say that there is somehow some obstruction of justice, then you will have to do better than the examples you have given. It is clear that is merely a fishing expedition by the rival party. The white...

    Is there any sign that there has been any illeagle activity? Anything that would stand as reason to hold a civil trial? If not, then what kind of precedent is there for hitting someone with a subpoena and threaten them with jail time if they do not respond? We do not know if you or I commited...

    Not only that, but in a real court case when you are under subpoena and required to testify, you can fall back on the fifth ammendment to the constituion if applicable. You also can raise an objection if the lawyer is going off topic and using leading questions, etc. What kind of control is...

    Oh, did I mention I am a teacher? :uhyeah: When I first started working in schools, the teachers had the only computer access to the internet and it was usually in a little room to itself off of the teacher's room. Now, ever school you walk into has the computer screen positioned so that as...

    This is just sooooo wrong

    That is not an image I needed. Somebody get me some mental stakes to gouge my mind's eye out with. But I really have to side with the guys that want to put this guy away. If he had just found road kill and did what he did, he would be a freak. The world is full of them. Hell, I think I work...

    I am talking about the use of subpoenas. If you are called and don't submit, you are put in jail. That just does not go over well with me. You see if from time to time with congresspeople eager to be shown going after evil dooers for the public good. Of course, in this case, everyone seems to be...

    Ninja Training By James Peterson

    Who is this shmuck? There are so many problems with this article I do not know where to start. If the computer is the outgrowth of the pen, and the pen considered mightier than the sword, anyone wanting to keep deadly weapons out of the hands of idiots should start with this guy's PC. I...

    Training in Japan, a few tips!

    Yeah, I think I know the case you are talking about. But that shihan has also told others not to come back as well. Those that were told to go away and never come back had to really, really work at it.

    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...

    What IS a Ninja?

    6? Man, there are some big losers out there. :eek: Maybe you can just cut off all the posts in this thread by the banned accounts and those responding to them and move it to the horror story section. I would love to hear more, but don't want a thread hijacked by these losers.
