Unfortunately no judo at JMU.

It's Ninja stuff. Chances are, it's utter garbage. Your son should be arm-barred for that.

"Dangerous activity will not be tolerated" I'm guessing they mean sparring.

There HAS to be something better than Budo Taijutsu...

The site doesn't make it look like an ideal place to train. Sites can be decieving to be sure, and one should not totally judge a dojo/gym by it's site completley. But things like:

" Due to the emphasis on effective technique and actual combat, tournaments are not a part of the training. Actual application of the techniques practiced could result in serious injury or death if done at speed. In the initial stages of training, all practice is performed at slow speeds until the student is comfortable with the movement. As skill progresses, speed and power are added to provide more realism to the movement. However, since all techniques are practiced with a partner, students must maintain control in order to avoid causing serious injury to their training partner. Although bruising is common in training, serious injuries are rare."

Things like that make me question the credibility of the place. I don't think tournaments are needed in training, but to say straight out "no tournaments, because they're no realistic enough" is a big red light of many bullshido "do forms and 1 step sparring" types of places.

I do not know about that man, Ninja schools tend to have a bad reputation. He is in a town of 40,000, are their no other alternatives?

In addition, some of the members are freaky lookin'…

And some are obviously “minor” demons…I will go inform Buffy…

Tell your son to watch out for a program called Warriorschool, its pretty suspect. Not to mention that that dojo seems full of freaks.

And, its the BJK so you can pretty much bank on it being ****.

Holy ****. Get out of there ASAFP. Based on what I saw at that website it is CRAPPPPPPP.

Let's take a look at some of those pictures.

Okay...what...the...****?!?! Thumb to the ribs? Oh yeah. Good one! Nerve strike perhaps? Yeah. Thumbing someone is much more effective that actually punching them. Because...like...its exotic and stuff.

Osama trains ninjitsu? Or is this some kind of hippy whacko trying to look tough. Either way I think he needs to be punched in the face on general principle.

This is a guy who wishes he knew how to do an armbar. He thinks he is doing something. But in reality he is being stupid. I hope he figures this out before he hurts himself.

I looked at the instructor page and a few links. This club needs to be nuked from orbit. Just to be make sure it doesn't spread.

Just dont train there, its looks utterly horrific.

Yrkoon's suggestion seems a little drastic though. Theres a substantial dollar value attached to this facility and college. :eusa_naug

Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is like drugs. Just say no. Everything I've seen and heard of it is utter garbage. If you a do a search, you'll find my story about when I choked a guy who was a first degree blackbelt in BBT. Granted, that's a pretty low rank when you have 20 degrees of blackbelts in your system (yet another red flag). Still, this was before I did any BJJ and I was just standing in front of him choking him with my hands. Everything I've seen of their stand up to stupid and their groundwork was downright laughable. Your son is at a university. There has to be something else either on campus or nearby.

I don't think it is utter garbage. In fact, when training realistically, I have found many of the techniques and principles to be very useful. I do think it can serve as a good supplement to other styles.

Oh, and that site is ****. I didn't see one effective technique on it.

If I had kids, I wouldn't want them training there just by the looks of some of those guys, they look like extras from a horror B-movie.

I think these guys are beyond saving, they're too far gone... multiple level 7 cases of inoperable ninjarrhoids IMO.
