    That's cause they're manipulating the "Kukan".
    Or it could be because they're all LARPing faggots, I'm not sure.

    That reminds of a bit that a comedian did one time. To paraphrase him, he basically said, " They came out with a movie called The Last Samurai that is starring a white guy, they came out with a movie called The Mexican that is starring a white guy, and they came out with a movie called The Lawnmower Man, and there isn't one Mexican in that whole movie."

    I'm not even Japanese and the Last Samurai pissed me off. You realize they could have removed Tom Cruise from the movie entirely and still had the same plot simply focusing on Ken Watanabe instead?

    Basically I just fast forwarded through the parts where ol' Tommy speaks and just watched the interesting parts.

    Paul Mooney also had a good one on Chappelle's Show:
    The Last Samurai

    The Bujinkan is a system which needs to do live sparring in its training.

    as opposed to dead sparring?

    From personal experience, Bujinkan implemented no form of sparring whatsoever.

    What turns me off to the Buj outside of ridiculous techniques, ninja LARPing, brain dead hero worship, black costumes, and all-around cheesiness is that *every* video clip I have seen of Hatsumi has him gloating around like he's some kind of bad ass. It was the same thing I saw in the nipple-twisting video with Hatsumi. (No matter what situation a ninja is in, a good nipple pinch will save the day.)

    From what Mongo has told me alot of people in Japan know the Bujinkan is bullshit, which is why there are few Japanese involved and most of the students are westeners.

    The Japanese tend to love the MMA,Judo,wrestling,karate,kickboxing scene. This is good news. But what puzzles me is why people are still attracted to the Bujinkan. For what prupose ? Surely after seeing a combat sport style, people would wake up and realise that sparring is essential.

    Fair enough if someone does not know any better. We have all fallen for bullshido at one point in time. But what puzzles me is why people choose to train in the Bujinkan instead of your full contact competition styles ? Surely they can see your sport styles give better conditioning.......

    Is Taijutsu taught seperatly in bujinkan?

    EDIT: Is taijutsu taught as a seperate style from bujinkan? Is it possible to learn only taijutsu?
