    Only if "chaotic-neutral" intent.

    Thank you . . . I am here all week. . . .

    Anyways, this is an "observation" of sorts sent to me years ago from, of all things, an Aikidoist. I believe he got it from a magazine or usenet group.

    Imagine walking through a forest in Japan. [Cue flute music.--Ed.] You come upon a clearing and see two rows of Japanese men and women facing one another. Both sides are dressed up in cowboy/girl costumes--down to chaps and toy guns.

    Standing at their head is a "sheriff." He shouts "begin!"

    One side says, "This town is of insufficient size to contain us both. You must depart!"

    The other side responds, "no, you son of unknown lineage. You must depart."

    Then both sides draw their toy guns and start yelling "bang! Bang!" at one another.

    After a few reps, the sides switch.

    The article asks, rhetorically, if you would laugh at them.

    "What do the Japanese think?" Well first of all they would have to collectively think the exact same thing before before that question would even begin to make any sense at all.

    I have noticed that there is not a lot of Japanese involved with the BJK.

    From the last few years in Japan, I have noticed a couple of things about Japanese dojos that are outside of the BJK. I have visited several Judo Dojos, a few KK Dojos, Shooto, BJJ and one Koryu dojo. There is a ton of hard work going into training. No one goes to class and they say that we are going to get the idea or the flow, the teacher doesn't talk throughout class and the students are very serious.

    I got the impression that the BJK is the only place that allows such lax training. Maybe that is the reason that the Japanese tend to stay the **** away from it. Also, everyone I ever told about how much the BJK class is, they all have said that its ridiculous amount for training.

    Not to mention the 'WTF ARE YOU KIDDING ME' look I see when I say ninpo/ninja/etc.

    Here in Texas, we take our cowboys seriously. Those gussied up nancy boys wouldn't last a day on the trail. (And yes, we all ride horses to school, I have a cow skull strapped to the front of my pickup truck, and I have hog tied an animal.)

    Is the bujinkan very well known in Japanese MA circles?

    I don't know if things have changed but when I was in there saying you were a NINJA or training Ninjutsu in Japan may get you the O RLY? Look as you would if someone said they are Royalty in a SCA group.

    And TABI are common footwear and not just for ninjers. You could see workers, from construction to a guy work a cart on the street, wear tabi and there isn't nothing to it. In old school traditional settings pretty mucy everyone will be wearing them.
    It's too bad ninjers don't wear the open-toed boots like they do in Naruto. I'd wear the hell out of those.
