    Logical Fallacies and You? Ninjas!!!

    so i will ask about something i know a little bit about myself.

    why does everyone bash the Bujinakn..

    i know there a large organisation, and that there is a lot of (high) ranking instructors that are just twats, but there is also a lot of other instructors who keep quiet, and even i would not want to meet them in a dark alley at night.. they are very good.

    i see that people have problems with bujinkan's classic straight punch... from this x-kans will jump up about there style and traditional's will go on about it not being effective and the like, and the x-kans would be in trouble against a good karate-ka or kickboxer.

    so my question is. what do traditional martial artist's think about Bujinkan instructors that have cross trained, and can apply both or multiple styles to there training.

    i have meet many an x-kan instructor who like me held black belts and above in other styles before they even started Bujinkan.

    i can understand the problem that TMA would have with the straight punch, and standing still waiting to be thrown.. but what about if the instructor can also see the benefit of it, and understand that its only a starting point to work from and practise.

    now before people start going on about there is no sparring so its not real. i train (& teach) in Shotokan Karate, so i spar several times a week, and i also train in Bjj and grapple there as well, and i still think that Bujinkan has some great benefits in the system

    i also agree just like in any style or organisation. there are instructors that give that style a bad rep.. i myself have been criticized from high ranking x-kans sensei's about my training original karate and other training, and told that it is no good,
    also i have had some x-kans sensei's practise with me to get better at defence against a Karate-ka or the like.


    so what do you think about people who train in Bujinkan, as well as other ( traditional ) martial art styles..

    thanks to all. mathew

    The reason why people think the Tsuki [ straight punch ] is useless is because most people who do it are doing it wrong and don't realize how it's meant to be used. Range is dynamic in the technique, a Tsuki isn't always a lunge punch done by a man in pajamas, it can be short, it can be hidden or set up. In combat [ not kata ] the Tsuki is used like a cross with kuden [ principals ] behind it.

    Of course! It's so simple! It's not that the technique sucks, it's that everyone is doing it wrong.

    Could it be due to the fact that most booj practitioners in general, tend to be posers? I am sure that within any style, there are a few that put forth the effort to do it right, but Ninjers tend to focus on the black pajamas and secret scrolls, more than technique.

    You got it sir, and yes they are doing it wrong.

    I'd explain but apparently according to a thread "It is Fake" felt the need to make trying to assume I don't do pro MMA when I indeed do [ maybe he's mad because he doesn't and that I would wreck him in the cage? ].

    I'm apparently "masturbating on how much I think I know about martial arts" so my opinion on what they are doing wrong isn't required ;).

    You have any video of you performing lunge punches in the correct manner?

    In the ring?

    Any video at all?

    The Tsuki isn't a "lunge punch". That's LARPers holding their arms out thinking they understand a technique they do not only to have Tori beat Uke senseless while he holds said arm out.

    I wasn't aware MMA took place in a ring outside of PRIDE. And it shares the same principals as a shoot.

    Any understanding of those principals?

    Any at all?

    What a mess these role players have created.

    Sure. Plenty of knowledge on the principals and more than a fair amount of practice.

    Video?

    Not yet, do you film your training? I really don't feel the need to do so. In fact I don't know any camps who film training outside of making promo videos lol.

    Since you know the principals, name one.

    There's at least three that make the Tsuki work that are the exact same ones for shooting in.

    Your martial arts knowledge is now on blast son.
