Thread: Anti-Bujinkan Scale

Bujinkan = an organization not a martial art.
Therefore your lack of even the slightest sembelance of a clue turns this thread into a steaming bucket of fail.

I fall at precisely 3.8 on the scale.And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

I like the descriptions of each rating. They seem to fall into a good categorization of arguments about the Booj. That said, I know nothing about it. Just thought I'd balance out the fail-wails.

I never studied ninjerism, but we share space with booj guys from Stephen K Hayes' place. Their "art" looked pretty goofy.

I feel like a Bujinkan Bullshit Matrix would work better than a scale.
As I see it, there are two major points of contention about BBT: it's effectiveness as a martial art, and it's historical authenticity. I've heard the sentiment expressed in the Koryu community that they don't care if it works or not, they're bothered by dubious history. From others, I've heard that they don't care where it comes from, just wether it works.
In my case, I am equally bothered by what a crappy martial art BBT is and how fake their history is.
Others, such as members of the Bujinkan, may place faith in both the history and the effectiveness of their art. It is my goal to deconstruct this misplaced faith physically and academically.

I would like all posts to start like this:
"I am number #4 or #1 on the scale because......"
This way we can have more clear results of our anti-ninjisity.

I would say 4 , because most of the schools have bad training methods and the techniques are scripted. I have never seen any sparring or training with resistance. There could be a good school with all these aspects but I haven't seen any,but Hatsumi...well I think he's good but just because of his (harder) training method or his Judo and Boxing experience.
