    do booj ninjitsu practitioners spar though? i was under the impression they did not. i also youtube'd for a good while and found nothing but very slow drill videos.
    Generally speaking, no they don't spar. There are some exceptions, but in most clubs, sparring is a minimal part of the training, if it's there at all.

    As to the 'taijutsu school' thing, I dimly recall reading about a JJJ based group in the UK referring to themselves as 'taijutsu'. I don't know anything more about them, though.

    We had one of them on here recently:

    An eminently respectable-sounding full-contact jujitsu style that calls itself taijutsu. No ninja links.

    We do have ninja, even Bujinkan ninja, who train hard and alive and can fight kicking around this board. shinbushi, dweidman and Rubber Tanto spring to mind. Given this, it's not too hard to believe that your friend had the experience he did even though the majority of the Bujinkan appears to suck ass.

    Just because the guy got beat up during training doesn't mean it was good training. I did a few months of Bujinkan a while back and it was pretty rough. They bent fingers and wrists and threw hard and hit each other hard enough to make bruises.

    But the thing was- it was all totally compliant training. Just stand there and let yourself get hurt.

    again, according to my friend at least, it was sparring. the students were instructed to got at him, strike lightly, but grapple at full speed. and they didn't stop till submission. not to mention in a dojo where you apparently get good judo players, in this ninja couldn't grapple, he'd of probably got thrown around like a rag doll.

    i shall have to investigate more into the matter.

    Thanks for the link. It looks like a typical ninjer school, and there really isn't a whole lot of information on the site, although that might be due to my poor Spanish skills.

    I train at a 'ninjer' school, which calls itself taijutsu. I would say that it is also a blend of many styles.
    We do proper sparring, though we do normally separate standup from ground fighting
    ie standup -> throw, and then another time train throw->submission
    It all gets put together at higher levels.
