  2. Yudansha9, this was a much better looking reply before I had to cut it up because of text length. And, then, not really being a forum veteran, posting the sections as I was cutting them from the top down, they now read last part, first.... But, I wanted to be honest and complete. That was my intent.
  3. One of their instructors was Fujita Seiko, who had the reputation of being in a family lineage of ninjas.
    I cannot certify Fujita Seiko. A lot of Japanese historians and researchers have mixed feelings about him, but because I am not a Japanese reader I can do no original research on him.
  4. My self-directed studies over the decades have really been focused on internal security unit training (East German Ministry of the Interior, etc.) and reconnaissance soldier skills of the 20th century across the major armies, which brought me back to ninjutsu via the Imperial Japanese Army and the intelligence officer training program of the Nakano Spy School (1937-1945).
  5. I am currently signed up for some classes on-line, but that is more for understanding method of the combat skill sets with the understanding I won't really get good that way. And, I do not consider that a sufficient level of practice to claim status. I am an Asian historian by training, with a military science minor. I spent three years in Japan, and did a lot of military museum hunting, castle hunting, etc.

About mrtnira

Basic Information

About mrtnira
Primary Style:
Other Interests and Information:
Studied (largely in an academic manner) the historical development of combatives taught to major military and security services throughout the 20th Century. This was a fascinating study of interconnected influences.
Martial Arts Experience:
1983-1985 studied under All Japan Karatedo Federation, while in Japan. Novice.

But, along the way in life since then, I have connected with various people with various backgrounds in traditional military skills and various combatives backgrounds and have enjoyed our time together. But, again, I remain someone of low skill level.

I never forget the myriad of techniques others may hold, or their better knowledge or abilities.
My kata looks like bad dancing, but it is my favorite part of training anyway.
