    Nothing wrong with environmentalism and its kindred ideas - if people can complement sympathy and compassion with intellectual rigour and pragmatism, good luck to them. As far as 'hippies', I suspect many of them were the LARPers of the environmental movement - all New Age bullshit, free sex (until the kids were born) and drug-induced euphoria. Hardly the dawning of a new age...

    Pinky in eye or ear would be better. Striking? dumb.

    Also the circular blocking from kihon and san-shin is bollocks as well. Too long, not enough time to do that from real punches. And no, it doesn't build up to the real block.

    Actually it does. However, like the vast majority of NinpoTaijutsu Waza, I have yet to see a Bujinkan Dojo do it right. The Circular Counter Strike is fundemental in Ninpo if you can't do it, the rest of your techniques suck too.

    Just for reference. When starting out the "circle" is friggin huge, just to get the motion. After you do it like 1000 times, tighten it up. If you ever use it , it should be real tight and really strike the incoming limb. Its not a block.

    my instructor told me,(and several of the higher ranks in the dojo) that the big sweeping circular movement is too encourage movement of the hips into the block.
    when my instructor does it , it looks like he is almost just swinging his lead arm straight across without dropping it and he still gets the angle enough too dissrupt the balance and the attack.
    virus it really seems from your comments that you really missed something in your 6 years of training or that you are purposefully talking down on your training due too whatever personal reason it is you have.
    cmon man which is it? bullshido or slander?

    Shut the **** up. Your training sucks. Leave the Bujinkan, leave for BJJ or at least a real school for Ninpo, or just kill yourself :seppuku:

    Sashin no Kata is different in Ninpo. Its the first set of (5) Kata in Gyokko Ryu. They mostly consist of a counter strike and attacking strike.
