    MAP is Yin to Bullshido's Yang.

    People get away with less at Bullshido because of the truth-or-die nature of the site. But it's not a perfect system.

    MAPs model is more inclusive and less interrogative which promotes lively discussion, but at the price of the anonymous internet ninjas.

    The best of both worlds? Try to lure the internet ninjas and rotten lying bastards over here. I know I do.

    This is what happens when a journalist writes a martial arts piece.

    There are many, many 15th dans now. Perhaps quite a few of them have the same lack of basic historical knowledge like this one.

    As far as helping " Bujinkan's cred " Hatsumi is doing his own thing and could give two shits about that.

    There isn't a central FB Bujinkan page. Jake seems to be a local celebrity of sorts. On his discussion page they were talking quality control in the dojos, which Jake accurately depicted as being left up to the individual instructors.

    -he's appeasing folks by giving them rankings, like a mom buying a ninja Halloween costume for an annoying brat.

    -he's cultivating drones for financial reasons so he can continue to train an elite inner circle in the real ****.

    -he's doing it to troll other styles where ranks are hard to get.


    I thought this post was on point:


    W.Rabbit, are you Wooden Hare over there?
    There's a fourth explanation: everyone and their ninja brother is trying to get rank for fear of one of two things happening.

    First is that the Hombu dojo is going to fade from existence.
    The second is that there is a very real possibility that the Bujinkan will cease to exist once Hatsumi passes into Togakure-ryu afterworld.

    There are a few people jockeying for position right now, to lay claim to successorship once Hatsumi passes. There was a rumor that he had picked a successor, another Japanese shihan that many foreigners do not know. Adding further to the intrigue, that successor would not admit or teach any more round eyes after he assumes Soke-ship.

    Unfortunately there are some that spend more time spinning tales than they doing working on the material. Bujinkan is no stranger to politics and in-fighting. No two 15th dans are created equally.
