    Well you still didn't answer the question. For Example is a Shodan in Bujinkan equal to 1st Degree Black Belt in BJJ?

    Bujinkan Shodan = 14 month - 2 years of training
    BJJ Black Belt = 12-15 years of training

    You just spewed random japanese

    Gosai - Nidan in Aikido, around 7-9 years of training.

    I'm not sure you would ever find enlightenment in a place that teaches Aikido and a bastardized TKD/Karate through the same guy. The majority of Aikido practicioners I've met would rather lose a fight then have to use TKD.

    As for this school, it won't be anything like your previous school.. at all. Unless your previous teacher was a walking contradiction as well.

    Actually I have already quit. SD is just the last place I officially trained anywhere (no reason to lie about my background). I trained with a 2nd degree black belt who was actually half decent and a group of his previous students (who were not decent, black belts sparing white belts should not lose). However, after visiting their Austin school I want absolutely nothing to do with them ever again. Except for that one guy they are a complete joke.

    I'm currently looking at KO Sports or Vandry's in Austin, TX to continue training. I've also trained at Pittman's BJJ in Lubbock, TX.

    Nah, Mr. Mason was cool and knew what he was doing.


    True, I had limited experience in Aikido and it isn't really for me.

    I do want to learn to fight, I was just wondering if anyone on this board would be able to find anything of merit too this Dojo, I mean it's close so there's convenience involved...

    And I was skeptical of the TKD/Krotty hybrid but willing to give the benifit of the doubt. Really I was more interested in the Judo aspect of his training. Well...I might beck it out, since I did call and leave a message before seeing his site (was not at home and couldn't see his site at the time)

    So i at least owe it too the guy to check out a class or two...but, i'm probably gonna end up agreeing with Kagekaze and the rest of you guys.

    If you could do just judo classes - OK, I guess. I would still find andother BJJ place if I were you, even if you have to drive a bit.

    Yeah that is a pretty good idea, but I haven't found one around yet so i've been trying to find a good Judo place.

    I hate people who call aikido a samurai art. I dont belive Ueshiba was a samurai, and I doubt any of his students were.

    Indeed. If i'm not mistaken he was born AFTER the whole era of samurai ended and all that...

    In other news: I'm visiting for one of their classes today. That Karate/Tae Kwon Do hybrid thing of theirs. I'll let you all know how that goes and what impressions I get.

    Might stay for the Aikido lesson after it too. Depends.
