Does anyone have any information on the creditability of a system called "Sanjuriu"? Here are a few links to check out.
I wouldn't waste my time with it.
Sanjuro? Like Yojimbo?
Do you have specific knowledge of the system or just smell the bullshido?
When a kid's summer camp link and a kid's after school program link are the two biggest images aside from the logo, I would stay VERY far away.
Maybe Toshiro Mifune is teaching how to be a roving, scruffy, earthy and cool anti-hero:5dunce:Quote:

Far be it from me to judge based solely upon the quality of their ad copy, but this doth not bode well.
-It claims to be a "complete" system for self-defense. As no such thing exists, I am immediately skeptical.
- Their foundations are ostensibly integrity, kindness, goodness and patience. This is not what should be the basisi of a +Self-defense" program. It sounds like a wonderful "self-improvement" program, though. I would feel better if their foundations were: Training, conditioning, pressure testing, and pain threshold.
- they proclaim an aikijujutsu, karate jutsu and (japanese) jujitsu basis. None of these are styles particularly reknowned for their practical methods and training; or at least not in modern times.
-This operation appears to be entirely commercial in nature. Which I don't like. I smell LARPing.
i love those movies, kurosawa movies are the ****Quote:
