    I have no idea where he is now. Where ever he is he's probably isn't any wiser.

    No because they wanted to take their token credibility pictures with Hatsumi!

    It's rare for university students around here to do Martial Arts but i've noticed that Ninjutsu goes along with complete lack of understanding of hard sciences.

    I think think this is worse than any _ing _un science theory I have heard espoused.

    Oh and some of the responses were the biggest load of **** I have ever read.

    If you can't teach to your lowest rank student then, you shouldn't be teaching.

    I had very much the same experience in the Bujinkan, so I looked at the Genbukan, and I'm glad I did because it really changed my look at Ninpo, and I was pissed after the Bujinkan. On the other hand, I also train Franco Behring BJJ, so I get a nice mix as well. Anyhow, sorry that was your experience, but I hope you can maybe see what some other Ninpo orgs are doing to combat the flufiness.

    With this being said, it has got me thinking to a time when I was training on the odd Sunday with a Nidan (2nd Dan) Ninjutsu practitioner who was a student of the BBD (Bujinkan Brian Dojo). Brian McCarthy was an 8th Dan under Hatsumi who was ousted from the Bujinkan for questioning his training methods and lack of realism.

    Hence the reason he started his own splinter group called the BBD. Back to the original point, the guy I used to train with used to train full force and used to apply the techniques with gusto. Very interesting since IMO what he was doing was effective (albeit painfull).

    Makes you wonder why Hatsumi sent him packing.

    Good stuff.

    I am glad to see another convert from the world of LARPers to the world of fighters.

    You should see what the training was like when the place was empty!
