did you ever ask your instructor if he would consider add alive training to his classes? If so how did he react?

I must say, I have always been amazed by martial arts instructors that trash talk other styles. Do they really think they make themselves look better by making others look worse? Your sensei should have listened to you. Now he would have still had a high ranking student as well as a new "hook" to pick up new business..."Alive Bujinkun!"
Yesterday, my neighbour came over to speak with my wife. She is 24 years old and a black belt (wait for it) 4th dan in Karate. She had gotten her junior black at 15 but for some reason, her school never made her rank drop when she crossed over to the senior level. It just kept fucking growing. So now we have a 4th dan, who would have 7 new arseholes torn into her from some of the 2nd dans I know.
She tells me that her school is opening an MMA branch to their dojo, to increase business. She is to be one of the instructors. I say (out of politeness) how great that was and ask here what other styles they are incorporating into the new school. She tells me they areplanning on bringing an aikido instructor once a month for wrist locks. (Huh???) I suggested a BJJ instructor for groundwork. She said there was no need because she was going to do a 6 week course on BJJ
People will come to them in the hope of learning an art that may one day save their life and you expect them to pin hopes to six weeks of experience?
I ask what other styles. There are no other styles. How the **** is that MMA? 90% Karate with 9.95% Aikido and 0.05% BJJ?
They think this is all they need. Sounds like your instructor.
What I'm saying is that when people get into a mindset that what they do is not only right, nut all they will ever need...there's no fucking changing them

Virus, this is an honest question for you. What, in your opinion, makes an art outdated? I hear this a lot, and I think people are using the word in an inaccurate way. Please explain what you mean.

Arts (Skills) do indeed become out dated. The prime example I use is any art that falls under the heading KUMIUCHI. These various arts deal with fighting while wearing yoroi. This isn't done anymore, thus it is outdated. Kenjutst or Bikenjutsu because a sword is not a primary, and thus not practical, weapon for the battlefeild or Self Defense anymore. No the arguement of replacing a sword with a stick doesn't hold water. Since the movements are designed to CUT instead of blunt force they don't translate over well. And if it was that simple why did seperate arts for stick fighting develop?
When it comes to other forms of Koryu JJ some are still outdated becuase they came up to address certian social needs for that particular time. Would you need to invest alot of time on seiza waza? No because situations where you might be attaked in such a postition are extremely rare nowadays. Kukishinden has many areas the focused around fighting at sea with a bo or hanbo. How much call is ther efor that? Considering the pirates today use rifles.
So yes arts can indeed become outdated.______

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
