Would Bullshido by any other name smell as sweet?
I bring you the wonders of KAMIZA!!!!
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.
Kantan theories and techniques are organized into 5 realms:
Self Conditioning - maintain your own physical, mental, and spiritual well-being
Communication - avoid unnecessary confrontation and control arguements naturally and honestly
Transportation - proper motion in everyday life and during physical confrontation promotes long term health
Striking - assert yourself with a calm mind and true spirit
Grappling - escape uninvited clutches and assert yourself with control
Calmness is Power. Self-Control is Strength.
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.

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. :(
