Othe people practicing kenjutsu chime in in the thread. Problem s most students would not know the error described. It really show the level of cool-aid drinking in the organization. If a bad waza is demonstrated own it. Thought this is ken I think this happens in all realms of the Bujinkan. It is really fun to read all the replies trying to defend the waza including, "He is doing it in public and on film, so he is doing it wrong on purpose to confuse those not in the Bujinkan."
I know many people seem to feel happy with what he teaches, and I also know that a lot of what he teaches isn't Ken, but if this IS his Ken, his students would learn far more from attending the next Aikido class at the Ayase Budokan, or a Kendo class...It's just more bad excuses for a lackluster attempt at training...No?
Well.....Maybe it is...But that doesn't dismay anyone here?
