    I am not aware of the school or the instructors so am unable to comment beyond the contents of the website.

    I will confess to being a little dubious about some of what is there but again it needs further clarification.

    Spiritual Warfare and Spiritual self defence for example? Spiritual cleansing? Herbology? Christian teaching? (Turn the other cheek does not easily lend itself to concepts on combat.)

    Simple answer is -Insufficient information but there are some warning bells ringing for me.....

    euh, I don't want to shatter your dreams, but he's a 10 th dan in a 15th dan system ninjutsu system, that doesn't really mix with christianity.

    Use the search function on Hatsumi, sorry for what you're going to find :new_puppy

    I dunno, it looks pretty hippyish to me :\

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Ninjitsu is not a fighting system-It's a marketing ploy to extract money from people who don't know about martial arts but dream of being something they saw in a film.

    If you feel strongly about this I will tell you right now I went through a phase in my life where I wanted to fight every style I'd ever hear of, and fought a guy who taught Ninjitsu and he didn't come off well. I don't say this as a claim of how tough I am. Merely as an illustration that deluding yourself about a method of fighting can create more of a handicap than if you just threw haymakers. I will add around the same time I got a fair bit of punishment from a chinese boxer so I'm not claiming super skills or anything.

    Style wise I have serious doubts-There is a lot of "eye candy" there to get the ignorant to come in and pay money. That same eye candy however tells me if the style was good he wouldn't need to pad his advert out with so much bullshit.

    So as I said without actually seeing what they do I can't comment directly but the web site tells me it is likely to be bad.

    Putting that aside, I'm not sure what you'd expect us to say. There is nothing in the website (video clips or pictures) that can be used to make an educated opinion on what the school is doing.

    There are lots of things that sounds like hippie to me (the cleansing, spiritual this, spiritual that and a lot of mumble jumbo that doesn't say much. BUT, those are things of a spiritual/religious nature, thus (for the most part), they are not part of anything to base an opinion about the school's style or martial instruction (if any.)
