    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.
    Sounds like my style.I heard many sad stories how in the old days people getting their jaws broken and noses broken.Maybe the middle ground could be what we find today in gyms and a few karate styles.I hope you're not having secons thoughts now.

    It seems to be the story of many places. "Back in the day, we used to train on logs suspended in hot coals. If you were knocked off, you were burned...."

    Welcome the Ex-Ninja club. As you can tell, I'm a recovering ninja myself (left for judo too; maybe there's something to it).

    Sometimes we get together on Tuesdays and toss the old rubber shuriken around, just for funsies.

    What you did took guts and humility, especially putting up your black belt. If you ever chance to come to Texas, look me up and I'll go to the mat with you for some ex-ninja randori.

    Yeah, but Australians do have all sorts of modern amenities like airplanes. Not bad for a bunch of convict descendants, eh?

    Well Judo is a good choice to move onto from Bujinkan becuase I like the gi and enjoy grappling. What went through your head that led to leaving arahoushi?

    Thanks for the offer Arah but I have no plans or reason to go to texas at the moment but if you come to Sydney come down to Olympic Park. We paid for it with our tax dollars and will proably never re-coup it's cost so I might as well get something out of it ;) Looks like a great setup: http://www.zenbu.com.au/Zenbu_Home_P..._-_Sydney.html

    I'm used to small training groups of about 4-8 people. BJJ has about 10-12 on gi day. This place must be pulling 30+ people a lesson.

    Wow. And was this attitude something along the lines of "If you wanna learn how to fight, you have to do some sort of fighting?"

    Arahoushi, Mongo and myself should meet up in Japan for the ex-ninja judoka throwdown. The first one to do omote-gyaku during randori wins a prize.
