    zimmer,
    please no Q on ranking and who is who or who was who.
    Q on my Training present and Bujinkan history only.
    Thank you for your understanding.

    yes.. suspicious.. sounds like the Bujinkan Dojo boys club police to me.. are you part of that club? What is the reason this is so important to you that you are willing to keep pounded it other than asking good, healthy, fruitful Q?
    Nope, not me.

    I actually came into this as one of your supporters based on what I have seen and heard.

    And to be honest I could care less about your ranking; BUT if you present yourself as having experience I.e dan grades in shotokan and judo as part of your resume, then it is not unreasonable to expect someone to ask who you got it from, when you received it, and what organizations they/ you were part of.

    mr. severe, I did some research on you and historical japanese MA systems and I found this discomforting:

It is a misconception that I teach Ninjutsu publicly just because I use the name ninjutsu. Most if not just about everything I have read on this forum tells me there is little or no knowledge of what Ninjutsu is or is not.
    sir, do you have menkyo in that particular ryu(like tsunehisa tanemura or fumio manaka)? or are you teaching with the certification of BBT? if you are not part of the bujinkan anymore then the certification of teaching is void, right? you cannot claim that you teach THAT ryuha according to the org. if you are teaching THAT ryuha as stand-alone, do you have proper certification?

    or if you teach it as your OWN interpretation, how is it different from SKH? is ninjutsu really open to interpretation? if so, then other 'historical MA systems' are too.

    and what do you MEAN by historical?

    besides bujinkan, have you studied other ryu/historical MA systems(preferrably japanese)?

    and lastly, you said that it is a misconception that you teach ninjutsu publicly. why is it that you NOW used 'kamiyamashinobi' as your handle? in all of the forums I'd seen you posted, you used just 'kamiyama'. why give signal to 'shinobi' if you do not want to be identified with ninjutsu teaching?

    thank you for your time reading and responding to this, sir.

    Mr. Severe's web site:
    http://www.artofcombat.com/instructors.htm

    Regarding the Bujinkan:
    In 2004 Ralph graduated from the Bujinkan Dojo with the highest ranking in the Japanese martial arts from Masaaki Hatsumi and has went on his own search for personal discovery, happiness and peace in his home state Texas. Ralph Severe is considered a "guide" at the Urban Combative Training although he has a "masters license" in the Japanese martial arts. His approach to training students is very relaxed with a lot of heart and energy. His generosity to his students with information is unusual when it comes to martial art instructors. He has a pragmatic straightforward personality that cuts to the point that has earned him the respect from his peers for being very honest. He is committed to his way of life, his art, his journey and to the students in the Dojo. Even though he is a student of Masaaki Hatsumi, he founded the authentic ninjutsu school called "Kamiyama ninpo happo biken dojo" in early 1985.
    I am assuming that the highest ranking, or "master's license" imply receiving a menkyo. Am I correct in this?

    Even with his 35 years of martial arts experience Ralph Severe feels he has just started to learn the hidden details of warrior arts. His research includes training in numerous other arts, ranging from Western Boxing to Muay Thai to Filipino to Russian methods. With his unique insight and innovative training programs Mr. Severe has been asked to trained many special groups such as, military specialist, security officers, body guards, border patrol, DEA, FBI, and law enforcement personnel.
    Mr. Severe, I am simply curious, does this mean officially sanctioned training, or do these personnel approach you individually to receive their training?

    Mr. Severe, is this man an actual instructor? I just want to be sure I understand correctly, and there are no misconceptions on my end.

    This is what you have stated at least three times. Or qualifies it as a question regarding your training and questions regarding the Booj.

    If you didn't want people task you should have stated "I will answer questions about my booj training only." You separated the topics into two questions all by yourself.



    If so please ask it.
    People have repeatedly asked you questions.

    If not then why keep posting BS messages I am not willing to answer Q?
    You keep posting BS messages yourself. You open the door and offered to answer questions. It is your right not to answer anything just like, it is their right to keep asking. If their questions are "BS Messages" then, by default and your own logic, your non-answers are BS messages.

    You are not willing to ask Q is the problem.
    Thank you,
    Ralph
    The problem is you can't control the questions.

    Because I keep justifying my reasoning for asking when/who/where he got his dan grades from; and because I keep asking, hoping to get an honest answer?

    Battlefield systems bona fides

    Quote Originally Posted by kamiyamashinobi

    I believe this would help me in answering your Q.
    Thanks.
    Mr. Severe, I'm not sure how my experience in historical Japanese battlefield systems helps to answer a question on why your school uses bad weapons techniques. I am also leery of this request being an appeal to authority. However, I am going to go on the assumption for now that this isn't a logical fallacy, and try and answer.

    I do not have much experience training in historical Japanese battlefield systems. I have experience in non-koryu jujitsu and judo, as well as training with the hanbo. The other "martial arts" weapons I have learned in formal martial arts training are the bo, the tonfa, the nunchaku, and the arnis and escrima sticks. Of those, only the bo is also Japanese. I also have practical, non-formal experience with more Western weapons like the quarterstaff, Scottish broadsword, and Bowie knife. I am an avid reader, and understand a lot about historical battelfield tactics from reading scholarly works on the subject.

    Now is the part where one of two things happen. One) You roll out your litany of experiences and training, and essentially use that to back up why your training is awesome, and disregard my specific points because of my percieved lesser training. Hence my worry that this is going to enter the realm of logical fallacy. Two) You understand that I'm not a complete neophyte on the subject, and you engage in a discourse with me on why your techniques are better than I'm giving them credit for.

    Really, a staff isn't much of a battlefield weapon. It's more of a personal defense weapon. This is not to say that a rokushakubo or quarterstaff or halfstaff (or 8-point staff, or what-have-you) won't kill the **** out of someone. George Silver (a noted English fight master) considers the quarterstaff a superior weapon. But it needs a lot of room to swing and maneuver to capitalize on momentum. You can't pack soldiers together weilding this. You add a sharp pointy end, have a yari, and pack them together to poke holes in opponents. A yari that's had its end broken becomes a bo. However, it now suffers from being less effective than a spear at poking, and can be grabbed. In the close confines of lines pressing, grabbing a broken shaft end is a good way to jerk someone out of line. Being jerked out of line is how you get stabbed.

    Now, your tecnhique puts the non-bladed weapon on the ground, controlled by one hand. The proper counter for your swordsman is to step on your staff. He's disarmed you, and can now dispatch you. It's a bad move. It's a gimmick move to try and attack a foot in a bad way.

    Yes, I'm focusing on one technique from your video. But it typifies the, to my eyes, sloppy staff work going on here. I see feet crossing, hands held close together, and none of the push-pull snap I should see from holding a staff in the half-staff (hands equidistant) position.

    So, what I'm asking for is for you to help me understand better what I'm seeing. I also hope you stick around this forum for more than a day. Forum-fuckery and asshattery aside, you can pick up nuggets of usefulness out of the dross. Plus, as I said before about the throwdown, it's a neat place to find more training partners.
