    What is Kaiten Kenbu?

    I've heard "Kaiten Kenbu" referred to as a style before, but I've never seen any reference to it on this site, or any other martial arts site for that matter. When I plugged it into Google, I got some canned definitions that pretty much told me squat. Anyone know what this is?

    I know exactly what it is. Its is TURNING SWORD DANCE a technique used by Shinomori Aoshi. Whoever told you you it was a real style needs to stop getting his MA form anime.

    Rurouni Kenshin sucked hardcore. If I was going to get my martial arts from an anime or video game, I'd take it from something that rules, like Samurai Shodown.

    Rurouni Kenshin! >< Damn, why didn't I remember that, it was like the first anime I ever watched! Yeah, I feel dumb now...
    RK did suck. The fight scenes were so lame, and when they actually stopped hiding behind the "he's too fast to see" excuse and actually drew him fighting, it was still pretty lame!
    The only reason I actually watched the entire thing was that I'd seen the Rurouni Kenshin OVA here first (They call it Samurai X) and it has got to be one of the best anime ever made.

    While we're on the subject of swordplay, why is it there are like no good kendo schools? The closest thing I found was a rich kid's fencing school that wanted to charge me like 80 dollars for just one lesson.

    The OVA was pretty decent if you ask me.

    SNK blows. Making the same games over and over again for 15 years didn't work for Capcom either, but at least they've moved on.

    I cast old school SNK fanboy counter!

    King of Fighters was good from 95 - 98, then sucked after that. Everything produced after the original SNK went out of business also sucks. It was the games produced beforehand (Or most of them anyway) that were good.

    -100 HP from your argument.

    Uhm, that's it? There was a really bad movie made that only had Ukyo for a few minutes during the credits, but the fighting games are where it's at.
