Real fighting experience may occur in more places than on the street. I worked as an orderly in a psychiatric facility, in the ward for criminally violent people. I was attacked often, and most frequently with weapons, improvised and otherwise. This can offer some good training, I think. Although you must restrain these individuals from hurting themselves and others, you must also do so in a controled and humane way. This offers a parallel, I believe, to the things that Soke teaches, on many levels.

Please excuse me, I thought that it might be appropriate to continue to manitain my membership for seminar purposes and to continue to support the Bujinkan Dojo, much the way that this is expected in many koryu dojo. I have never had a problem maintaining my membership, even though I am neither Shidoshi or training under one. I wonder if the revenue generated by this would be worth Soke's assitants time? (If everyone who was ever a member, and remained in good standing, continued to support the Bujinkan)

I do not think that this topic is appropriate for Kutaki no Mura; I agree whole heartedly that the membership is only valid if you are training. However, I remember in "Togakure ryu Ninpo Taijutsu" Soke's account of a student who was leaving the country, and who came for lessons in sojutsu, and recieved techniques of aruki. In so doing he recieved the feeling of sojutsu.

Once again, I only hoped to recieve advice on the culture of the matter, to try to ascertain what was most appropriate within the Bujinkan.

I would also like to reiterate that this topic should not be posted in a public forum, in my humble opinion.

Thank you to both respondents; Gambatte.

If you have trained in the Bujinkan for a number of years, but you have not trained under a shidoshi in a number of months do to a move, life change, etc... is it recommended that one continue to maintain one's membership year to year?

I was wondering if someone could tell me who performed the tameshigiri and the Kikkoman Nodashi Embu?
Thank you.

Brief aside, but not so off-topic.
Relating to THIS thread, there is a Bujinkan Dojo, which has been operating for over 15 years by a 20+ year Bujinkan veteran, in Bloomington, IN. Even active koryu martial artists in the area have no idea that there is a ninjutsu dojo in their city.
Just a point of interest.

I have heard rumors that the 2006 theme may be Shinden Fudo ryu iaijutsu. Of course Soke could change the theme at any time so speculation is purely futile and a complete distraction from training diligently, but has anyone else (who attends Hombu regularly) heard anything about this.

Has anyone seen Shinden Fudo iai?

I really like the great variation in uniform in Bujinkan. Long gone are teh days of matching black gi with uniform patch, outdoor tabi on the tatami with kyahan and (those wrist guard things). Go to a daikomyosai, and you'll see vinage t-shirts for Tai-kai long past and gi pants of all colors, each adorned with a kenjutsu obi, and maybe a rank belt, too! But nobody does it better than this guy.
