    They're certainly not as sound as they could be, but the sparring is crucial to spatial awareness, timing, and whatnot; that gives them a leg up over most koryu. I don't know if there is anything beyond Toyama Ryu that attempts or least attempted to foster combat science, however.

    If the name of the art doesn't end in "do"' the costumes are probably ****.

    Let me translate Rock Ape's post for you -

    "Hi friend, please look at the date on the post previous to your initial post in this thread.
    Note that this conversation died about 5 years ago, and that you have done what is referred to as "necro" the thread. Furthermore, you added no relevant or new information which is considered a no-no. Presumably you haven't read the rules, or if you did you are blatantly ignoring them. So please, go and **** yourself. I say this disrespectful thing because you have been disrespectful yourself."

    That clear things up for you?

    Actually, yes that does. Thanks.
    I have always been rather bad about remembering to read the date on forum topics. It must be all of the smaller forums with less traffic that I usually visit.
