    That's too bad. It looks like a nice place to roll. It think they would have done the kid right.

    Are you sure they were calling it budokwai? It wasn't something like bujinkan?

    "Kwai" is an older romanization of what's often written as "kai" nowadays. A lot of groups have a name that ends in "kai" (e.g. Ikkenkai, Takumakai), but "kai" never denotes the name of the art practiced within these groups. If the teacher at this "Budokwai" is also calling that what he teaches, it's odd.

    No, but it does teach you how to defend against indy bands that are meant for white people.

    with regards to my experience mate i kickboxed for several years but the instructor who taught it had also a lot of exerience in other martial arts aswell as working a doorman, he used to go through wat a "real situation" would be like without adding anything fancy in it.

    this budokwai im currently learning seams pretty realistic its not really fancy its something you would have to try your self because there is only so much you can put on the net. im just after a better understanding of the arts past but im not really having much look.
