    Okay, that was funny.

    My only encounter with the booj (watched a class and trained one class) left a bad taste in my mouth...and I didn't even know that they were claiming to teach ninjitsu back then. Either way though, the smugness and sense of 'this is t3h u1tiMa3!' was palatable.

    I wonder who the OP trained with. I had a bit of experience with Court Elliott, who is now apparently a 10+ dan. He can in fact fight; I saw him handle a guy fresh off the street who wanted to see how good he was. Rumour has it that this is largely the product of having some sort of prior JJ experience.

    His students c. 1992-1994 I was not so impressed with. I have no idea about the current crop of megadans and others.

    Interesting,

    I know Court Elliott. I also know a lot of people who hate the guy. Seems outta shape and a bit of a strange man...but hey, I believe your story. Interesting.

    I'm not sure what his deal is. He used to teach for free, and that's where I met him. I honestly don't know much about him aside from the fact that he seemed to be good at what he did and his students seemed to be not so good.

    Wow for free? Very interesting!!!

    Kageyama Dojo, a huge dojo in Toronto, charges like 200 bucks a month, it's insane.

    He used to teach "self defense" in a couple of community centres but nobody showed up except his students, who used it as an extra training session.

    What have you heard about him?

    WRT Kageyama I don't know those guys, but I did know someone who took a UK-based modern JJ style in that space. 200 bucks is crazy. I can pay about a third of that for classes at TKMT.

    Kageyama has a lot of dorks in it.

    Toronto Ninpo Taijutsu is there...wouldn't recommend it.

    There is the main Ninpo school there...don't really know what it's like.

    There's Shorinji Jiujitsu or something of that ilk. Not sure what it's like.

    What have I heard about Court? Buj guys tend not to like him either. Apparently he's a good example of someone who has the rank but bad taijutsu. I don't know, I've never seen him practice. Furthermore, a lot of the guys who told me he was bad are probably some of the worst martial artists I've met.

    They're the Jitsu Foundation style. They're UK-based and do traditional-style stuff along with a bit of live grappling. I've met good and bad practitioners.

    What have I heard about Court? Genbukan guys hate him, they think he's crap. Buj guys tend not to like him either. Apparently he's a good example of someone who has the rank but bad taijutsu.

    On the good side, I first learned how to bridge out of mount from him. On the bad side, he tried to get me to use the awful Ninpo-style striking and talked about "not using strength" to hit.

    If I remember correctly he was initially a Stephen Hayes student. He did do the odd spooky misdirection thing. Frankly, I don't think he liked me very much because I made no bones about being a complete dilettante WRT his system. I'd already been doing another art for several years and viewed his stuff as icing on the cake.

    200 a month!? Even high end BJJ training which can be quite expensive usually doesn't cost that much. How many booj/genbukan/etc dojos are there in Canada? More than in the US?
