    Not in a long time

    Hello all, I have not posted on here in years. Forgot I had an account. Love for a good place to chatter some arts hopefull without too much politics. I gave up teaching some time ago and closed the doors. I had changed my schools dynamics. Was very unhappy with how I felt after that. In the...

    Hi from an AKBAN veteran in Toronto

    Agreed, and Greg is a really nice guy. I'd agree to say to contact him. He's pretty open minded as well.

    Not ninjutsu but...

    Truthfully no, I'm being tounge in cheek. After years of watching Dave Allen on TV I figured the Catholics didn't mind a poke here and there. Honestly, if God created humour... well. It wasn't meant as a stab at things. So no I don't feel the slightest bit disrespectful. I am sorry you took it...

    Changing Dojo or Teacher

    That's awesome he still trains, what in? That would be pretty intimdating I guess for the instructor as well I'd guess.

    Not ninjutsu but...

    That pic just made the nun that much sexier. I'm not Catholic so I can't be punished for such thoughts right?

    Is there a way to confirm this place is 'legit'?

    Well it definaty has some merit to it. It is Bujinkan so you have the lineage aspect covered, the teacher David Moorefield who I have met on an occasion somewhere I can't remember travels pretty regularly to Japan to upgrade and get teachings so, really the rest is up to you and to see if it is...

    Ninjustu acceptance in the Martail Arts World

    http://www.martialartsplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=99128 I just closed it. I don't know how sincere Jon is with the whole thing sounds like he will carry on with both IMO.

    Ninjustu acceptance in the Martail Arts World

    You're probably right. But I'm no troll. And I'm one of the mods for the Ninjutsu forum there. What quantifies that?

    Ninjustu acceptance in the Martail Arts World

    I'm such a huge fan of accepting societies and people that refer to themselves as Ninja. So to make the record straight, You had 4 yrs of training...now to form a ryu. However during this time period you have spawned a Sensei, who is now moved from you to teach on his own, 2 yrs of training give...

    Has anyone heard of this place?

    I guess it depends on what you want. I'd go with Wideman Sensei's suggestion personally.

    Banke Shinobinoden

    I've seen the clips, they didn't seem too impressive. My friend attended, he said Kawakami was a very nice man. So take that for what it's worth I was going to attend but when the dates changes it mired it for me. I agree with the people rushing to things, though I heard there was only 30 there...

    Jinenkan Ne Waza

    As usual excellence coming from Adam Mitchell. Jeez watching those vids always says to me I need to train more LOL. Love those vids. IMO the best example on the net where to see decent taijutsu.

    Banke Shinobinoden

    Some of my close associates are going. I can't make it anymore as it was rescheduled for a time in June when my employees are off on vacation. I would have love to see what this guy is made of up front. Nowadays I have a hard time believing anyone, legit or not.

    Guns in the x-kans?

    We practiced Teppojutsu when I was in the Kan, mind you more an opportunity to be better thru practice than tactical deployment and usage of the weapon. But we used rifle, handgun, shotgun, hand cannon some explosives and cross bow. I think it depends on the instructor.

    Favorite/Hated thing/s about Ninjutsu/Ninjitsu

    LOL, exactly what the hell. Good topic actually . I had a chance to see my old teacher (Bujinkan) in action the other night, it did remind me of what I liked and didn't. I am not a fan of the timed lunge punch, I know it is form and something to work with flow, of which my old Shidoshi is...

    8th Degree BB Ninjutsu?

    Earlier in this thread I believe I made citation to a young Shidoshi in the Bujinkan. He was a 9th kyu when I left that dojo some 11-12 yrs ago. I have moved back to my hometown, had the chance tonite to visit my old Sensei at his request for a class. I had a chance to watch the person I made...

    Question about joining a dojo

    I agree. Now I do want before certain people jump on what I wrote about the other things we do. Lockpicking, one of my senior students is a locksmith. So we practiced it more for the "oh thats a neat little skill" than the hey I can make money cracking into homes. It has come in handy on a...

    Question about joining a dojo

    OK fair enough I see your point. My training for the foundation was Bujinkan, so I guess it was all I knew then to another form of the art so the name stayed. Opinions will vary.

    Hell yes Ed gave me one of this as a gift in Montreal 2 years ago. It's one of our favorite toys, nice to open teens eyes to what a senior could do to them LOL.

    Question about joining a dojo

    Sorry more thoughts. Now is that a comment based on what your opinion of what encompasses Ninjutsu? Now are you speaking of movement such as tobi waza, if so we do that but it's just not for a video. If you are speaking of movement that would be considered aggressive in certain ways offensively...

    Question about joining a dojo

    And no there isn't much there from the Ninjutsu ryu. I also didn't edit the video. I just asked for highlights to be in there. Not to mention, I am not qualified to teach Togakure or whathaveyou so I am not going to highlght it as that.

    Question about joining a dojo

    I think I call it that as that is where I got my training. I have never taken another art myself so I guess it could just be called Taijutsu or Budo. Now mind you, there isn't an inth of what we do on this vid. If you are speaking of anything outside of Taijutsu. Mind you there was a small...

    Here pick on me a bit. I call it Ninjutsu. But I don't claim any lineage, other than the training I got from the Kan and other sources.

    8th Degree BB Ninjutsu?

    I agree with Shesulsa, it's just not an issue. I could see it being a problem for the instructor I suppose, but if a student has an issue they bring it to him/her or the Sempei etc. As for a point on the age thing as it has zero bearing. Being 47 doesn't mean alot. I have had students in their...

    Question about joining a dojo

    Yes of course you are correct, if someone is teaching something that is not remotely attached to Ninjutsu they should call it something else. And again correct about the name and the usage of ryu ha. I actually know few independents that teach or claim to teach and rank in the ryu ha that...

    Question about joining a dojo

    I am going to be careful with what I say here in future. The majority of people that did their own thing that I am aware of came from the Ninjutsu camp, mostly being X Kan. 90% of them didn't capatilize on the name of the art itself so they felt that was what they were doing. Or at the very...

    Question about joining a dojo

    Jacobson Anshu is a Yondan under Dan Buckley, who is no longer with the Bujinkan. To my knowledge Dan now runs Bansenshukai Ninjutsu, which actually from the vids I have seen, he is a pretty skilled guy. I may have an opppotunity to meet Jacobson at the upcoming Jinichi Kawakmai seminar in...
