Hatsumi in Action - THIS martial art sucks
I went through various Buj thread and couldn't find this.
Suprising, really, when it's possibly the ultimate video of disaster. Hatsumi himself pulling off the same complete bullshit that everyone else in the Bujinkan does.
It's over 3 minutes (skip the first 50 seconds) of joy.
What happens at 1:50-1:55. It's like a circus act.
The 2:00 to 2:10 part. Just horrible. Look at the compliant partner grinning and flinching for no reason. I guess if he does this and makes Hatsumi look good then he gets a new dan rank?
3:08 to 3:17 ish. Brilliant ground stuff. Hatsumi seems to sweep his opponent and finishes him with a DOUBLE retard leg stamp to the sternum. This sort of stuff is fatal to grapplers.
Oh, and check out the defence against jumping to guard. I'm convinced.
How can anyone defend this crap?
It saddens me that there are humans on this planet that will stick up for this bollocks. No I will NOT accept their methods of training, because their methods of training are purely abysmal.

Hatsumi seemed to go the way of Ueshiba. He was badass in his day, then became a hippy old man with a hippy cult.
Budo Taijutsu the next Aikido?

Previously, I thought the level of delusion in the Buj and in Wing Chun were about on the same level. After watching this, and considering that he is the top guy in the organisation, I would say that the Buj is on a new level.

whats with all the ninja nipple twisting techniques?Eduardo "Why'd you stop."
Me "I was kicked in the head by the guys sparring next to me."
Eduardo "Ino what happened but i didnt say you could stop."
Me "Um.. I guess I keep going."
Eduardo "You dont stop until i say stop, you dont get tired until i say your tired, keep going."

My cousin gave me some tapes of him doing tkd. I learned from those tapes. When I beat up an Akido instructor, and made him take rest breaks, I used TKD. I learned Bjj from watching ufc and pride and then I copied them and wrestled my cousin for practice. I choked him out and he tapped.

Well Hatsumi was a pretty good Judo-ka when he was younger and there was a video floating around with of his dojo sparring in the 70s (when it was only one dojo). I'll see if I can dig it up when I get home.
Look like he gotten old/likes $$/doesn't care. He basically become a showman and a symbol for a large cult. I honestly don't know. Maybe him is his Japanese shihan go into back room and rip each other to shreads and laugh the silly Gaijin LARPers. Or maybe like Ueshiba, he just went insane.

That vid has been posted before and people actually did try and defend it. If you want a laugh, get onto Emule and download a taikai. That's where the most retarded stuff comes out. Even Steven Hayes says that Hatsumi is a showman putting on a performance. What's sad is the people who think that watching and trying to imitate is the way to learn to fight.
The actual core bujinkan curriculum isn't that bad, I don't much agree with a lot of it but you could do a lot worse as far as TMAs go, but that stuff you see there is showmanship, he doesn't teach basic sensible, retainable techniques. As far as real fighting is concerned that's utter rubbish.
I think it was Tanemura who said that Hatsumi's techniques are miracle techniques, becuase you would need a miracle to pull them off.

As I said the first time this was posted, the closest thing to legitimate techniques he does are purple nurples and the noob sweep.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
