HOW DO ARMBAR?!: Bujinkan Self Defense - The Untrained
How Do Armbar?!: Bujinkan Self Defense - The Untrained
I stumbled about a “discussion” regarding the Bujinkan Ninja discussing how their Ninja LaRPing would hold up against an untrained opponent. The result was pretty hilarious. It almost hurts to see them being taken advantage by a elderly Japanese Man that thinks they are stupid enough fund his retirement.
Yes, you read those correctly. SandNinjer has always wondered what’s it like not to LaRP a strike, For those not familiar with Japanese terms, Shuto is a “Sword Hand” aka a Chop, Traditionally applied to the base of the neck or temple in order to setup a lock or throw. This is when TomD responds that his instructor once hit him lightly and his legs “gave out.” Sandninjer responds that he been told he could kill someone this way. Yes, Bujinkan Ninja are so deadly that can kill people with a single blow and therefore cannot be practiced. Thank god this technique is outlawed in all competitive striking …………Oh wait no it isn’t.
The conversation moves to Oya Goroshi (Thumb Lock). Apparently Ninja technique involve finding the smallest joint on the body and attempting to control the entire body through it. As described by Kagete, mall security guard.
The other Ninja, don’t argue that “Attacking the thumb” may not be the most practical avenue, no they argue that is too harsh…
