    Help: Shizen No Kamae Not Working at BJJ

    Hey, guys.

    So, lately, I've been studying the dark art of Earth Ninjutsu via YouTube. I'll go to BJJ class and everything's fine when I do the drills. When it's time to roll, tough, I pull out my Shizen No Kamae where I use Earth Style Ninjutsu to root myself to the mat. The guys I roll with just grab me by both legs and uproot me, though! Then, I'm suddenly on the ground playing their game!! I suppose I could use the techniques Professor is having me drill, but I know they're not nearly as deadly as Shizen No Kamae.

    Are they on steroids? How do I strengthen my Earth Ninjutsu against steroid-addicted Jiu Jitsu guys?

    Maybe it's like Earthbending. Seriously I think it has something to do with moving large boulders around with the power of your mind.

    According to at least one reputable source (Ashida Kim), all you need is mind power. He's one skinny mofo and yet a master of deception and chaos warfare.

    Big muscles don't work against mind magic.

    I whole heartedly agree. OP should invest heavily in the Paladin Press and watch more ninjer UTube.

    Everyone knows bjj sucks.

    1985, and yes, this trailer ripped off John William's original Star Wars score.

    This movie was my first exposure to ninjas, and for that I'm eternally thankful.

    Otherwise I might have taken them seriously.

    try jumonji no kamae. nagato dai-shihan once said that there's jumonji no kamae on the ground. seriously.

    on the other hand, to increase the power of earth ninjitsu, you must increase the number of contact points on the ground. turn around and bend over, drop to all fours on the ground.

    they can't use your head as leverage point as it is too far away, your chakra is flowing via your four limbs, no way can they take you to the ground. even kicking you is not allowed, as per the ufc rules they trane in.

    dropping your pants down to your knees is optional, but supposedly highly recomended by dan severn...

    It also ripped off the incredibly fake sword fighting as well...

    You just suck at shizenhontai, obviously. As a beginner/novice, you are trying to apply a very high level and complex posture in a difficult situation, against specialists in another art.

    There is a lower level technique, called "sprawling" or "the sprawl" (nesoberu) that you should practice.

    Consult the "Little-Black Book of Ninjutsu"...
