Giuseppe, I've seen several of your posts on this forum and they have a similar them. You are asking questions as if you are an expert in martial arts. Having study a lot of martial arts and been in lots of fights does not make someone an expert. You are asking questions about bringing in techniques learned in other martial arts to essentially fill in the gaps where you see there are gaps, but you haven't trained in the Bujinkan long enough to know really where gaps may or may not lie. Like Marty said, you will need to spend a lot of time training in just the very basic techniques in the Bujinkan before you can move on from there. I had the same issue, I also came from a background of studying a lot of other martial arts and getting in lots of fights and sparring matches. I thought I was hot stuff and when I started Bujinkan I thought I had the answers and thought that my previous training would give me an edge in the Bujinkan. Boy was I wrong. You say that Fudo Ken is too slow and long, that is because you are studying it at a basic, beginning student level. Maybe someday you'll understand the true nature of the Fudo Ken and it's practical use in a real fight. Given your knowledge and temperament at this point, it is a good thing you haven't achieved that knowledge because you would seriously hurt someone if you knew how to use it. After doing the basics for a long time, you will finally come to understand their true nature as I did after years of training and giving up my ego. Good luck, and keep training. Spend more time training and less time asking questions. The answers come from the physical training. In Japan it is kind of discouraged to ask many questions because you need to spend the time training. When someone asks a question about what was just shown, you can see the annoyance on the faces of the teachers. I like the motto: shut up and train.
