Kaeru is right - you should get this from your teacher.

I know it's a bit 'lame' of an answer. But, the point is that there are many versions of the Tenchijin Ryaku no Maki in print and online, some with descriptions. However, even the best descriptions contain gaps and differences (some flat out wrong). This could cause you to actually go backwards in your training, so that's why it is cautioned.

As far as 'brown belt requirements', first off there is no official brown belt in the Bujinkan. That's a local belt rank/color your shidoshi has chosen to use. However, the kyu rank (likely ikkyu) is an official rank in the Bujinkan. There's nothing wrong with doing things like that, but understand every shidoshi sets his/her own requirements for each rank, so you need to speak to him/her about it.

The trouble with seeking training guidance through online mediums is that we don't know what path you are on with your instructor. You haven't trained directly with me, so I have no idea how you move or what you know. Therefore, I have no idea what you 'need' to know or what you 'need' to fix. So, I couldn't offer any advice to you in that regard.

To answer your Kukishinden Ryu question from your first thread, that's equally difficult. It would take volumes to answer and likely would only servce as brain candy instead of actually helping you develop good kihon. As I said already, there are volumes of such information already on the net. But, remember, these things can lead you off the path of development your shidoshi is guiding you on, so be very careful.

All the best!
