Whassup. I am unaffiliated with any martial art system right now but practiced Soo Bahk Do for three years; stopped five years ago. I'm a long time reader of this site. I live in the middle of nowhere, USA; there's no martial arts dojos , no gyms and it sucks. I'm hoping to move in a year or two.

I'm getting back into the martial arts after a conversion to Judaism because of the general anti-semitism in my area. Most people dont know I'm jewish cuz I dont go to a synagogue but I want to know how to fight in case someone bad finds out and "goes after me." I also miss my ol' favorite hobby .

I'm interested in bujinkan and realistic self-defense.

I am considered very eccentric by friends and family for several reasons (rap battling in public, inventing my own language, etc)

I'd love to search better but the keywords I associate with the topic never bring up what I'm looking for.

Try searching bujinkan and/or RBSD ( reality based self defense ).

Oh not on that- I mean in general. Like I'm looking for Body Mass Exercises but no one uses that term.

Still look up bujinkan threads. Please. It'll be an eye opener if you are actually interested in realistic self defense. Just a word of caution, most people don't know what the **** they are talking about when speaking of Martial Arts, so don't listen to people just becuase they are normally a reliable source.

Hey man I am also new to the site and having lurked on the site for a few months I've found the critisism offered by the members here very helpful, especially when I was switching styles. Though I haven't met many "bujinkan" practititioners and believe there might be some legitimate schools out there I thought I'd share an enocunter I had with a single practitioner since I don't know enough about the art to comment on it in depth, hope it helps;

Very nice guy, mediocre wrestler at best, finds out I'm taking martial arts;

Guy: Yeah, I take something too (wry smile)
Me: Really? What?
Guy: I'm a ninja.
Me: A ninja?
Guy: Yeah, we learn all these deadly kill moves; (demonstrates some punch with middle finger closed but held further than the rest) this would stop your heart from beating.
Me: ....
Guy: We also learn these things with our mind in our style.
Me: Like what?
Guy: I can do this stare and a person will get so scared they won't want to fight me, imagine I could walk around Harlem (we both live in New York) all day and Id be fine.
Me: I walk around Harlem now and I'm fine.
Guy: Yeah but with this stare people will be afriad to rob me, I'll scare em off.
Me: Can I see this stare?
Guy: (looks at me intently growling under his breath, I break out laughing) Well it didn't work on you because we're friends.

Notice it's "walk around Harlem all day" and not "all night."
'Course, no need to look intimidating when you can just turn invisible.
