    toshindo

    I'm new here and I'v searched around to look for a thread that discredit toshindo. I've seen some members mention very breif information about this style but no true evidence of anything just from what we all see on my space and youtube. Can someone guide me to the appropriate thread so I won't make a mistake on my search for a good martail art.

    Check youtube, there are a ton of To-shin Do videos posted there currently.

    If you're interested in what the general teaching style is like check out

    If that is the kind of thing you're interested in, and you have a local group, consider checking them out. If you are thinking about doing their DVD program only, consider finding an alternative gym or school instead.

    Watered down? Thats funny coming from a Bujinkan.


    Anyway for the original poster. Toshindo is Hatsumi's Taijutsu mixed with Okinawan Karate.

    Toshindo is a "pun" on the nin kanji. To = blade and shin = heart where the nin kanji is two kanji "blade" and "heart"


    i am not defending toshindo, but the fact a bujinkan called something watered down is very funny. Bujinkan is a watered down as JMA gets.

    Hayes never claimed to nor expressed interest in mixing Okinawan Karate into his material.

    Got any proof to back up that claim?

    my school sometimes has some good sparring, but if you want to call it watered down your entitled to your own opinion. But besides that i spar with my friends like nuts outside of class all the time. But really i wasnt calling it watered down, i just heard it was watered down so i took their word for it.
