I didn't even see the kanji there in the background. Yeah, I'm not busting out the dictionary for that, and it ain't ten.
God I hate Asian writing systems so much.

I totally didn't even realize you'd posted.
Love your work by the way; I know I'm not the only one here who does.

I sincerely hope that a part of the training is getting you to the point mentally and physically where you can determine for yourself what skills you need to develope and how to build upon them.
They do not tolerate the macho stuff or showing off no matter how great one thinks he may be.
Don't mean to cast stones
but it sounds like you guys are the ones who are shoveling the bullshido.
Do you need to ridicule or put someone else down in order to feel good about yourself?

I love the fact that when you click on the History section of the sanjuriu.com website it says, "Coming soon" Check back for updates!
Coming Soon? WTF is that.

When attacked by a one armed man with a knife, first you should...

See, here is the problem... no one minds if anyone at all chooses to open a "school" and teach bullshit moves or ridiculous spiritual bullshit to people. Really, no one on this site cares.
Where people around here (especially the hardcore fighters) get pissed, is when people teach bullshit and then try to pass it off as actual, useful, self-defence techniques. People teaching bullshit and pretending it is a deadly martial art degrades the martial arts as a whole and frankly contributes to people getting killed or at least having their ass kicked when they whip out their deadly knife defence technique against a mugger.
If you can't look at the picture posted in this thread (from your website) and at a glance understand that trying to use that technique on an actual attacker would result in you getting cut/killed, then you've already drunk too deeply from the coolaide.Jesus loves you. I think you're an asshole.

I rather thought this:
Pressure point striking and nerve manipulation designed to parylize [Sic--Ed.] any attack meant to harm. The Sanjuriu Karate jutsu curriculum uses old-style Samurai Circle drills (Randori) to develop realistic practice, person to person training to establish modern and old-style understanding of the human anatomy and autonomic response system to learn exploit weakness and understand the mechanics of healing, and realistic interpretation of forms (Kata) to create a complete self-defense system, building balance, co-ordination, self-control, Honor, dignity and personal empowering.
Then I read this glowing endorsement:
I personally know a few Sanjuriu instructors. Sanjuriu is a system of self defense that teaches, in addition to able bodied adults, children, and the handicapped -- blind, crippled, mentally challenged, etc. The instructors analyze the student to determine where he/she is physically and mentally and helps him/her develop skills to defend him/her self. They do not tolerate the macho stuff or showing off no matter how great one thinks he may be.

Doctor X, the representative for the handicapped is informing you to watch your step.

I appealed more to the hyperbole than the actuality. What pissed me off about the quote was the exploitation of the handicapped to sell bullshit.
There are self-defenses for the handicapped.
This is not it, and it is utterly reprehensible for them to advertise as such. As others put it, if they want to be honest and advertise themselves as a family exercise group, a place for kids--fine. If they want to advertise that they have very interesting exercises for the handicapped--fine.
I see no evidence on that site that they have any qualifications to teach the handicapped or the mentally retarded. I find it highly unethical to market as if they do. If they want to sell empty martial promises to adults and credulous parents, that is one thing--a dishonorable thing.
To prey on the disadvantaged is quite another level of unethical behavior entirely.

Everyonce in a while I have to be touchy or I get my crippler card revoked.
