    We call them things 'aeroplanes'.

    And, for your information, some of us are descended from peasants, not convicts.

    Zenbu is a great club. Olympic quality instructors, and Morgan spends a good amount of time on newaza. Usually half and half newaza and tachiwaza.

    I'd get there more if I wasn't spending all my free time at SPMA.

    I do feel a bit self conscious turning up to judo with all the BJJ patches on my gi, though.

    Where are you training BJJ, Virus?

    Boxing Works in the city. http://www.boxingworks.com.au/bjj.php

    What is SPMA? (Edited to add: Ah found it http://www.sinosicperosh.com.au/ looks awesome but a bit out of my way, especially as I have no car.)

    That sounds great about the 50/50 standing to groundwork. You can't have too much newaza training. Unfortunatly training at Zenbu is off untill the Easter Show finshes.

    Sinosic Perosh Martial Arts.

    Zenbu were organising some training during that period at various places. The judo club at Castle Hill (forget the name) and NSW or Sydney Uni as well, I think. I'm still on the mailing list.

    Hey Gravious I know where you train. They have good instructors there but its too far for me to go.

    By the way I train at the Judo club in Castle Hill. Its called the Budokan Judo Club

    Yes, Budokan, that's it.

    I would be training judo as well, if I had enough free time. Lots of fun. We did some takedown training in BJJ on the Gold Coast last week getting some competitors ready for a comp, and I actually did a couple of cool judo takedowns. Much fun.

    I really wish I had found proper martial arts years ago when I was young, instead of fucking around and being put off after trying aikido.

    With commercial #censored!# like Horvarth running "the business" in Australia it's not such a big surprise to me that the bujinkan is slaundred and pissed on.
    Boards ( and users ) like kutaki.org intend to make it worse ; the truth is so painful there that you have to act like a ***** to even say something.

    It's just so sad that it has to be this way.
    There allways be jackasses like Davis and Dux clowning around , but the number of #censored!# within the bujinkan only seems to be growing... fast.
    I just try to laugh at it and keep on going but it gets tougher and tougher...

    Just out of curiousity :
    ...but not once in my six years, with four instructors...
    Was this situation at one particular dojo or was there something else ?
    ( maybe moving to another city a lot or somthing like that )
