    Why is that?

    Something really bothered me with what Reptileddp posted about proof that some of these guys never trained with Takamatsu Sensei. They don't have photos with him. Oh no deary me.

    Big deal dude.

    I don't have photoes of myself with Sensei Jan de Jong when he used to come to the Ju Jutsu school I used to be a member of. Oh no, no photo no proof. In all honesty if I trained with, say Randy Couture, I would not want a photo with him, personally I would be imbarrised. In all the years of my own training I have never felt the need to get a photo taken of me with an instructor. It is like autographs, I do not care about them, it is the training that matters.

    Photoes are for the fans.

    Some people are focussed on training and learning from their Sensei.

    CAPITAL LETTERS AT THE START OF EACH SENTENCE, and stop being blind to hero worship.

    One last thing, perhaps there is an legimate reason for Tenamura Sensei not mentioning past ties with Hatsumi Sensei, such as these ties being cut....or whatever. At the very least he has the intention to teach solid basics so that his students etc can grow as Martial Artists. What Hatsumi Sensei does is good for himself and his looong term Japanese Shihan but that is because they have practiced the basics until they are coming out of their arse.

    Phew, thats out,

    You're arguing over a thread which was last discussed to any extent in 2007 ??

    Sorry about that, I was not really paying attention to when the last post was made, just was annoyed with what ninjer fanboy was saying.

    I most definently NOT a ninjer/boojer/LARPER, just a dumbarse who did not notice when a thread was made last.

    I will pay more attention next time guys/girrrls. Once again, sorry about that,
