The idea here is that folks remember what they heard much better than what they saw, giving you a better defence in court should you get sued or arrested for the fight.
    Yes, saying stuff like "I don't want to fight", "Stop", and "Please don't hurt me" while you are pounding your attacker is a common tactic taught in RBSD circles. It has to do with the fact that if/when the cops show up, witnesses do not have to have had a direct line of sight to remember hearing what you were shouting, while only a few, if any, people will have had a good view of what actually happened.

    Hmm, when I go to Ann Arbor in September,maybe I should infiltrate ninja camps. There seems to be a few of them on google maps.

    The finger flicks are not a strike. If it's the same as I was taught, they're never meant to actually make contact. It's literally just wiggling your fingers right in front of a guy's eyes to distract him away from the stomp kick or punch coming. It also makes him lean his head, neck, and spine back, hopefully unbalancing him.

    Maybe this is a stupid question, but if you can get your fingers that close to the guys face, why not just go ahead and hit him in the face? wouldn't that unbalance him pretty well?

    Bujinkan is usually cheaper and more "ninjery" then Toshindo, which is more a Ninjutsu/Okinawan Karate hybrid.

    The 'finger flicks' is a training device. They are likely meant to mimic eye jabs. Punching someone in the face with a closed fist is a good way to break your hand, hence the open hand punches. In level one classes they probably focus on developing that and move on to closed fist variety at higher levels when motor control has developed further. Studying martial arts casually does not demand that one be in peak physical shape. You will see fat or out of shape black belts in just about every level of every art.
