    Koto,

    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.

    But do you do any training with them though?

    Crap!!

    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?

    Heh, reminds me of a debate I had with a friend recently who had done TKD for most of his life. He did very little sparring, and so I asked him, "How do you know what you learned works?" His rsponse was only, "Well, because our teacher said it works."

    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.

    That's not my point. My point was: How much free sparring do you do? Do you actually test what you learn against a fully-resisting opponent, or do you simply take what the teacher says for granted?

    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).
