Last night, many people left Hombu before the class started because they noticed Soke wasn't there.

If you do such a thing,

(1) It is against Soke's wishes.
(2) It won't help you develop your Budo.
(3) It is very rude to the Shihan who was asked to teach in Soke's absence (and all the people senior to you, too).

But the fact is that those who should study much more under Shihan often tend not to do so because they can't realize what they need. I think this is one of the most ridiculous things in the Bujinkan. Then, what will the future of the Bujinkan be like?


How can people like this be in Bujinkan? I am astounded by this.

From the input of so many other Kutakians, it seems that many Bujinkan members share my view that the bootlegging of Soke's (and any other Shihan's) videos is very disrespectful. It is so important that the Bujinkan community support the Bujinkan, you know? I am not Shidoshi, but I wonder if Shidoshi work actively to keep students away from this type of behavior?
I hope that Kutaki no Mura and and the entire Bujinkan community can remain active in stopping the spread of this abuse.

Hello, I seem to remember some Kutaki members who were good at dealing with things like this. Here is a link to an e-bay listing which I believe is suspect.

A fine example of these variations, and how kamae are not "frozen in carbonite", can be found on "Budo of Elegance" as well.

Gambatte, kudasai!

Hello All!

Now that it's been cleared up , let's make it murky again! If you are completely new to Bujinkan training, ignore the following and practice the 'basic form'. However, if you have been training for a while, you might keep in mind that these kamae aren't 'frozen in carbonite' (yes, I am a Star Wars fan, but please don't hold it against me ).I will refrain from including boring personal anecdotes and direct you to Hatsumi Sensei's Quest video 'Ken Tachi Katana' in which Soke demonstrates a few variations of Seigan, some of which have right foot forward, some have left and each with a variety of hand positions.

Ganbatte!

K.H.

Luisito, Soke offers a lot of Budo for the dedicated student, maybe more than can be learned in a lifetime. Train diligently and explore the Bujinkan as deeply as you can. I feel that there is more than enough to be learned from Soke.

Kindest regards,

I'm afraid my comments here, and below, may be naive.
The purpose of this budo is to preserve life, right? Further, I have not had a physical confrontation with an aggressor in many years. My training at that time was limited, but I am still alive.
Now, things are different. Though I know my budo is still immature, I could launch a soku yaku ken through a brick wall and I'm afraid of my shuto. (Human beings are as resilient as they are fragile, you know?)
I'm afraid of violence, not for fear of loss of my life, but what I could do to someone else if I actually cut loose.
i like the following analogy; a famous athlete, say Michael Jordan, challenges you to a game of street hoops. He wins, then laughing, exclaims, "Ha, ha, loser, I whipped you up!". Now, the outcome of the game was hardly inquestion, Mike trains (trained) incessantly, and will probably be remembered as one of the greatest hoopers of all time. If some drunk or some person who has a sick mind decided to try his luck, a budoka could just turn it on. This sick person doesn't constantly assess combat tactics, practice waza and koppo and all the things we do, how could he stand a chance?
Or maybe as Soke wrote in "Togakure ryu Ninpo Taijutsu", all fights are 50/50. (There's probably a hidden meaning there...)
I stay out of the way of violence, and seek to preserve peace and good will towards people.

Thoughts?

Or maybe your friend would like to train your budo?
