    I can guarantee that I will not even read your post and reply by quoting the first 2 paragraphs. Or I will make a 1-2 sentence reply which is either a badly conceived retort or a joke only the "bujinken" community understands. Finally the other times I will quote every paragraph and make a comment to sound like they are actually trying to form a rational thought.

    And to answer your question the Bujinkan is singled out because everybody knows what it is, but Ignorance is not a martial art.

    Aren't you late for your meeting with Bear1980,

    so you can brainstorm your next round of Bullshit?

    As a related question, just how good is Hatsumi really?

    I get the distinct impression that people here are not impressed at all with the quality of the Bujinkan training or with the ability of many (most?) of the members.

    But how about the Man himself? He got his training in a very different generation and in a very different way to most of the students today. Is he himself the real deal?

    For example, in his prime would he have been a match for top MMA fighters or one of the Gracies? He looks like he moves extremly well and makes it look effortless when he takes out people in demonstrations. But how much of that is real and how much is cooperation?

    And what about his weapons abilities? Is he considered to be in the same league weaponswide as other koryu teachers. For example the head of Yagyu Shinkage Ryu or Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu?

    It might look like that the bujinkan is singled out but in reality, yes it is singled out.

    In my opinion it doesn't matter which dead art you do. Bujinkan, taichi, hapkido, karate, kempo they all suffer from the same thing. It doesn't matter if you do big circular blocks against a lunge punch or you do bong sau against a _un punch, neither of them really work. You can practice clapping the punch between your hands if you want, it doesn't matter.

    From what I have heard, Hatsumi was a high rank in Judo and in a number of other arts and in his youth was quite a hard ass. Takamatsu his sensei was a hard ass. So I will assume he was a hard ass. But Hatsumi is in his 70s now and I think he has adapted his training to suit. Sometimes, from things I have read on forums, its as if people want to be like Hatsumi, as he is NOW and not get to where he is now by going through the motions he did to get there...

    But in the end, this question is redundant because no matter how good your sensei's sensei is...it doesn't justify your own abilities. If my sensei could armbar the entire machado family while eating a hotdog...it wouldn't represent my abilities if he never taught me how to grapple, yeah?

    Anyway...its 10am and I still haven't had coffee...I'm rambling!

    Please feel free to justify these statements. I did do resisitve training. And where are they "over the top"?

    ****, that the Booj is FAMOUS for.
    I have never ever heard these claim from people within Bujinkan. Not ever.

    Plus, please come to a throwdown and show me how you can handle up to three people at a time. That I would like to see.
    Of course, you will do like most BJK people do and simply make up some excuse, such as the aforementioned "lung problems".
    So now I have to prove myself to you? Why?

    I honestly have no idea what you are waffling on about. I liked the first one and I liked the second one. Both were interesting.

    If you do a single pushup in martial arts training you are wasting your time and money. Do it outside the dojo.

    Please list these techniques. Most of what I learned was plain common sense.

    Whatever.

    So your whole argument has gone out the window.
    You are just plain weird. Why did he have to be a ninja? I thought he was a ronin. Aikido and kendo did not exist when Musashi was born. They were invented 300 years after his death.

    I don't have anything to say about your comments but this one is wrong.

    I understand what you're saying, martial arts is a set of techniques and skill set and that physical strenght and endurance are the "fuel" so to speak to drive the engine.

    But

    You can't separate them completely like that.

    Conditioning and stamina are just as important to a martial artist.

    The arguement that it's not important enough to train in martial arts is often used by people in bad physical shape.
