My name is Gabriel, i織m a Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu practicioner from the far land of Argentina... Sorry for my english, but i織ll do my best for making me understand so we can talk...
The idea of this message is to present myself and tell you that i think it織s beatiful to be able to talk with people that love this art as much as i do, and of so distant places for me like the US.
For giving a little of information about the training in here i can say that we train monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday and saturday, two hours per day. I think it織s pretty effective and the training respectable rough, in the little time i織ve been training in here i織ve seen many people come and go.
Hoping to talk with you soon

Best regards
Gabriel

How did you happen to select Ninjutsu as your art? Had you trained in anything else before?

Hi!

Jay bell, thanks! nice to meet you!
Arnisador, well, i織ve trained a year in judo and three years in shaol穩n kung fu, why did i choose ninjutsu? well, after leaving the shaol穩n school i needed to train again, my body was asking it. I started to look after some academies of diferent arts, sincerily ninjutsu wasn織t in my list of martial arts, i never seemed to be atracted by the ninja stuff. One day, travelling by bus i saw the dojo, entered in just for curiosity, took a free class and well, after that moment you could say that i fell in love with it... it織s like i織ve found a second family, were i train with the same people everyday, were i found that i can trust and be trusted, nothing was like a thought it was going to be, it was hard, but now i織m begining to understand that its an art about life and not damage, and that is what i love of it, being able to grow, phisically and spiritualy with the people that i織m begining to feel like my brothers, and so i say hi and nice to meet you to everybody that shares this passion for life.

Well... i think that the closest point is 織bout the low positions, let織s say like when you do go gyo no kata, ku no kata, the position when you go down blocking the geri it織s very very similar to a kung fu position called mapu.... i find many points of contact between the two arts, but the most notable is the low positions, diferent to karate or others that have higher positions... historically i think there is a big point of contact between the two arts, with chinese refugees in iga and koga regions.
i found interesting that some secuences of moves of ninjutsu are very similar to a form of kung fu called apu chuen...

what do you do? did you practice other arts before ninjutsu?

I don't practice ninjutsu--I'm just 'eavesdropping' I'm afraid. I'm a Modern Arnis practitioner.
