    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Would Bullshido by any other name smell as sweet?

    I bring you the wonders of KAMIZA!!!!

    http://www.kamiza.com/home.html

    Kamiza is some sort of holsitic health training camp, retreat, rec. area, place to get pubic lice, etc. They feature, what looks like, the predictable range of "health", "wellness" and "Qi Gong." Basically anything that someone with a short attention span who doesn't wear underwear and hangs out in a natural foods store can get into.

    It gets good here: http://www.kamiza.com/martial.html

    Kantan Martial Arts. Claims the word to be Chinese and Japanese. Can anyone run this one down?

    With the inclusion of Ch'uan Fa, Tae Kyon, Jujutsu, and Bujutsu, it is one of the world's most comprehensive martial arts.
    Right. Master of FOUR martial arts and several nebulous tree-hunging, dirt-munching "healing" arts.

    Kantan theories and techniques are organized into 5 realms:
    Self Conditioning - maintain your own physical, mental, and spiritual well-being
    As opposed to learning how to condition others. I myself am a master of self-feeding, self-walking and self-loathing.

    Communication - avoid unnecessary confrontation and control arguements naturally and honestly
    I think this is just Being a Hippie 101.

    Transportation - proper motion in everyday life and during physical confrontation promotes long term health
    I thought this was more like getting a bus pass. Is it martial transportation if I kiai while waiting for the subway?

    Striking - assert yourself with a calm mind and true spirit
    And your calm mind and true spirit will get the alfalfa kicked out of it by a guy who just fired down $200 worth of cocaine in the bathroom, with a freaked out mind and evil spirit who kick like a mule and bite like a crocodile.

    Grappling - escape uninvited clutches and assert yourself with control
    Well, that'll help.

    Calmness is Power. Self-Control is Strength.
    Spoons are toasters. Pencils are cheese. This game is fun. Can I learn it at Kamiza?

    Note that the seminars have no prerequiste, including sparring. Which makes the whole thing quite productive. "Ok, you, you don't know anything, right? You either? Good. You two spar."
    I dork harder than any of you can imagine.

    The only invited clutch is the one that leaves fingernail scratches on your back.

    And you don't really want to do that with hairy and stinky hippy chicks, do ya?

    I also enjoy the short throw clutch of a fine automobile... and to think of it, those large pieces of metal are fine implements for destruction... These Kamiza's are no match for a nice pickup with a brushguard.

    Last I looked Kantan was the fake ratan material that East India Trader stores said their furniture was made of.

    I don't know, Ray. Hippie chicks can be total freaks in the sack. And some of them thinking banging a guy whose last name they don't know is some kind of political statement.

    ****, last time I trust Dictionary.com to give me a definition.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=striking

    I'll have to send them an e-mail about this. Apparently, when people ask me how good my Striking game is, they mean how my abilities to assert myself with a calm mind and true spirit are, not how much I can mess someone's face up. :(

    I thicken the plot

    http://www.kamiza.com/instructor.html



    Self-appointed master. Yes.

    Master of four martial arts. Yup.

    Master of, Qi Gong Master Natural Wushu (I have no idea what that is supposed to mean.) Absolutely.

    Is there any inflated law enforcement / military training I can dig on? Sure! ...
    He has taught self-defense and security based lessons and seminars to members of:

    NC Department of Corrections
    NC State, Local, and County Law Enforcement
    US Armed Forces, including Special Forces
    Does Master TM Sully have belts in weird, quasi-historical stuff that no one can back up or disprove? How about a belt in TKD to go with the one in "Tae Kyon" he mentioned above? Could he please mispell the name of an art he has ranked in? Child, child, the answers to these questions are all, "yes."
    Other martial arts experience includes belts in Shuri Te, Naha Te, Shotokan, Shaolin Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, and Aikedo
    And finally, can this all somehow be realted to Phil Elmore?

    Yes! One of the mods at PB is an instructor of Kantan. Danny Rowell, a.k.a. Strepanciwcz (???) practices the mighty art of compassion.
