for ****'s sakes let it go. Ditch the Bujinkan and focus on Kyokushin. If you want some grappling practice then join a judo or bjj club on the side.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
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.

I just started this, and I thought it was pretty cool and effective. I mean, it has real world techniques, the sensei tells us what is effective and how this and that wouldn't work in the real world, and what would work...isn't even the Taijutsu worth it?

People need to think more skeptically and more critically about these things. Trial-and-error, man. Not to mention, I would argue, humans learn much more quickly by actually doing something than simply watching, reading about, or listening to something.

Actually, I'm taking the classes, not the video course. I agree that videos are NOT the way to go.

Well, in the To Shin Do classes we actually do spar, at the higher levels...it's "Alive", if that's what you're asking. At my level (White Belt), we "spar", with people attacking us with what we've learned so far.
In the Jutaijutsu classes, it's all alive. They show techniques and we do them with no "hold back" instructions...of course, I've only been to one jutaijutsu class so far (I was choked and tepped out every time, of course).
