    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    A question to Bujinkan students.

    How do you "sense" a sword from behind?

    I've seen demonstrations of it on t.v. and I'm wondering if it's real or is there something ese to it.

    Don't worry, I'm not looking to try it.

    I'm alot of things but not delusional.

    I've heard of the Bujinkan reputation and am aware theres some serious Bullshido going on with aspects of it.

    I have done this. Its not really a mystical thing, it more of just using other senses then hearing to feel someone entering into your space. There is no training for it, its just something that developing as your train. Don't think of it as a sensing thing more of it as being aware.

    Honestly, I would have called it complete BS a year ago. However, I now believe you can feel when someone wants to bust you in some cases. (Of course, I could be hearing that little intake a breath before the strike.)

    Also, it does not work for me if the attacker attempts to hide the intent in the slightest. Therefore, I'm not betting my sixth sense will save my ass.

    Apperantly plants can feel this intent but research seems inconclusive. Polygraph says plants have the real psychic, other methods say no.

    People forget that they have quite a few more senses than the five classical ones (non of which are spiritual),

    Sakki Test is just a matter of luck, if you already know that there's someone behind you with the intention of hitting you in order to you evade it. Where the **** is the spirituality on that?

    That doesn't mean it luck, you meant to say it is fixed.

    Edit: LOL catch wrestling.
