Good choice on leaving. I've trained in many systems that are like the training you've talked about... Silat, Kuntao and even Kali can tend to be like this. However, I've been fortunate enough that in those same places I've trained these, they also did "live" training and taught Muay Thai, BJJ and the like. I guess the theory goes that you can learn the "deadly" but can't really spar it without serious injury, so you learn the "not so deadly" to get the live training and thus, you can make the choice to be deadly or not in a "real" fight.
Anymore, I just treat the deadly techniques as fancy demo stuff.

It's interesting I read stuff like this and it rings totally true with me, although I never went to Japan and trained at trained with Hatsumi. It looks like t3h r3al bujinkan is not in another country, it's in another time. This guy says the training used to be hard, with lots of randori but it was pussied up becuse of injuries and to make it more acceptable to the average person. The training he talks about sounds too hard, I wonder why a middleground could not have been found.

Money, Virus, it all comes down to money. Most people don't want to spar with any contact at all.
