    Just let it all out.

    That's right.

    Now take a deep, cleansing breath.

    Simple answer is don't train there if it is such a problem. I am not a fan of the X-kans or ToShinDo. So instead of going to a ToShinDo school and then bitching about it to strangers on the Internet, I just don't train at a ToShinDo school. Its no big secret that the Hatsumi lineage arts teach more LaRPing than actual combatitives. But if your primary goal is the learn the Ninja arts, then that is the right place. There are plenty of other schools that teach effective self defense.

    I've had my fair share of run ins with ninjas of all stripes, and if you want to be able to defend yourself, Toshindo is one the last activities you should be doing.
    I would place training in Toshindo somewhere a little bit underneath regularly playing tennis in terms of it's ability to prepare you for a fight. At least playing tennis will build your cardio.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    Agree completely. But I feel it would be remiss not to point out that this is true of all ninjer arts.

    Anything related to Hatsumi in any way is absolute kool aid. Amazes me to no end how many adults (mostly white and fat) drink it.
