I guess what I'm thinking of is (in the new "batman begins" movie) when bruce wayne is training at the temple in the mountains for 7 years with his master and ninja cult (I forget the name of it, and I apologize). He learns everything to perfection before they think he is ready to use it to help the world. I mean, when you're living there and accustomed to that lifestyle, you'd practice hours upon hours a day because it's so intense.


"Batman Begins" is a movie. It is a fictional story based on a fictional comic book created for entertainment purposes. I really liked, "Batman Begins."

I really love movies. They really entertain me when I am not spending time with my family and friends, working, or training.

Can any of you give me advice!! Should I try to get a job in Japan through the US or what? Also, what else should I do?


Hi there,

Do yourself a favour and do your homework! Get very comfortable with Google and the internet. Research a lot of companies who offer jobs in Japan. Some English Schools (Aeon, maybe) do recruiting outside of Japan on a regular basis and some companies (Geos and the JET Programme, maybe) only hire outside of Japan. There are many chat groups and BBS's about jobs in Japan - search for "Dave's ESL Cafe" and "Gaijinpot.com".

It would be a very good idea to really study the geography of Japan as to where good places are for work and training. Google maps can really help out here!

Eva has some awesome advice of trying it out here on a training holiday first to see if you are cut out for it. If so, you can also do some really good research while you are here and make some contacts too!

Good, then you have lots of time to make best preparation! Good Luck!

Hi there,

This is a very good point that Marty brings up here. If one trains how to use a knife, then one will probably also train how to defend against a knife as well. Now if one has trained for quite some time and has acquired some skill with a knife, then one most likely will not need to carry around a knife at all.

I was once asked by a friend of mine if I thought it would be a good idea for him to take a knife for 'protection' while travelling. You see, this friend of mine was planning on travelling by bus accross the whole country over the summer and would be doing a lot of camping. This friend of mine had had no prior knife training and only a brief exposure to some martial arts.

I advised strongly against this idea of carrying for protection. I believe that it would actually be more dangerous to carry a weapon if one doesn't know how to use it.

To illustrate my point, here is something that happened about six years ago in my home town. A fight that broke out during the day time on a sidewalk right down town in front of a seedy bar. The aggressor was unarmed. The other, who decided not to run away, pulled out a knife in hopes of scaring the aggressor off. Unfortunately, the aggressor was more skilled at using a knife and was probably more willing to use it. He quickly disarmed the other person and proceeded to slash the man's face diagonally from top to bottom.

If you are skilled, you do not need to carry a knife. If you are unskilled, please do not carry a knife. And if you are in between, please keep training and do not carry a knife.

Hi there!

I have not yet met Ari but what it looks like to me is that he is renting space out of his (jujitsu) dojo for Bujinkan classes with two skilled instructors twice a week.

For those who are interested in Bujinkan training in Victoria, this will be a great opportunity. When I began training in '99, Brian C had already trained in Japan and I have personally trained in Japan on many occasions with Brian B. They are both good guys who have experience in the Bujinkan.

I am looking forward to training with these guys whenever I am back in Victoria for visits.

Hi there!

Good question. I would think that if someone was interested in really caring for a sword, in order to preserve it, then putting blinding powder inside the scabbard would not be a good idea.

However, it might be possible that in times of war and combat, swords were more readily available. Possibly from lost victims and from discarded, broken nihon-to (hence the shorter and straighter blade of the ninja-to). I have also heard that one method of poisoning a blade was to let it rust. Applying clove oil could prevent this.

Therefor, caring for and preserving a blade might not have been such a concern as it could have been regarded as just a tool.

Hi there!

There is a video available called, "Foundation of Togakure Ryu " by none other than Hatsumi-souke! I think that would be the most beneficial to you in seeing the types of techniques. I think it would be quite hard to describe techniques in text only on a message board.

Hope that helps!

Hi there,

I moved this thread since I didn't see Hatsumi-souke's name mentioned in the write up for the film.

$35 Million, Sho Kosugi, 60% Japanese funding, and the scriptor of Die Hard?!?

I am excited!

Hi there,

I would suggest first getting in contact with the publisher of the material you wish to have translated. Ask them if they have any plan of offering an English version of that material. If yes, then you can ask when and simply wait until the pre-order date.

If you receive a negative response, you could offer a suggestion that there might be a market for an English version of that material. You might also go so far as to offer your help in a project where you would find someone willing to translate the material for them for a good rate. You never know, they might just go for it. If not, then at least you tried.

Hope that helps!

Hi there,

using the 'search' function for sword cuts on the front page I found a previous thread where some people were talking about that a while back.

Have a look here and see if it helps at all.
