    At least it shows that someoe with 13 years of full contact martial arts training can dodge a lunge punch thrown from 6 feet away.

Doing it three times after class with a mate then thinking you understand it aint gonna do you any favours. But like I said, in the end it's what works for you. I'm not here to preach that ****. I just answered Viru's questions.

    In my old dojo.....I set the curriculum and we sparred a minimum of weekly but that doesn't mean the org isn't crap, just 'cause I used to work hard and get bloody and train with aliveness.

    Because in my opinion, the source of the martial art is corrupt...........

    No, you didin't

    The Bujinkan doesn't do Gyokko Ryu and Koto Ryu. They do Bujinkan Ryu sytle Gyokko/ Koto Ryu kata. Big Difference.

I haven't experimented too much with ganseki nage from it yet and only managed to pull out te makura once (the Nagato version that Shinbushi shared with me, which doesn't involve putting your hand behind your head like you're doing the Macarena). I need more willing partners though to work a lot more on it.

    I was at the dojo last night (not training of course do to my broken arm). However, Te makara was the technique of the night and the drill was to do te makara on a fully restisting opponent that would take you back and choke if you let them. Open the person up with strikes seemed to be the method of choice for opening people up for te makara. And we do the version that you put the hand behind the head. It makes it tighter and much harder to counter.

    Nope, it's just picking up the phone as you said it (which is a nice way to describe it).
