Here's a quick historical question out of sheer curiosity- Does anyone know what the average life span or expectancy of a ninja whowas taking active roles in espionage or war a few hundred years ago, from Iga or Koga ryu for example? Maybe during times of intense fighting or wartime? What sparked this question is I was watching on tv about the fighting going on overseas and how in some areas of heated combat, it isn't that long. Does anyone know?

A general definition of trapping is to prevent escape. Maybe focus not on hand trapping, but "whole body trapping" or "mind trapping", even "balance" trapping. Focus on the whole thing and not just one part.

Greetings!- Has anyone read the book Think and grow rich by Napolean Hill? The reason I ask is in the book it talks about submitting info to your subconscious mind and memory. One training method that has worked tremendously well for me is CONSTANTLY thinking about training. In the morning, at night, in bed, at work, at home, everywhere, all the time. Any problem we have in training, just submit it to your subconciuos mind by repeatedly thinking about it and before you know it, your problem will be corrected naturally. This works for anything, not just taijutsu. I personally have overcome many difficulties in training just by constantly thinking about it. Does this make sense?

Greetings-
Is Kodachi another term for a short sword, like wakizashi or shoto, or is a Kodachi a different style of short sword all together? Thanks alot. This question is geared toward anyone who can answer.

Greetings!
I have noticed sometimes after soke does a waza with the long sword, he occasionally will do this little spin with the sword. Holding on with the bottom hand and quickly pulling back with the top, cuasing the sword to spin in his hand. Does anyone know why he does this? Just curious, thanks.

Greetings!
I find it so irratating that so many people just HAVE to say something about others. It seems as soon as somebody does something, somebody else has to start complaining, or running their mouth like high schoolers. I agree that we are all in this together,or at least we should be. BUT, you've heard the joke: "Q:How many martial artists does it take to screw in a light bulb? A:One hundred and one- one to do it and a hundred to say he was'nt qualified."

Hi Carl-
The best way to start is to learn from a qualified Shidoshi. There are a few Bujinkan schools in MI. There are also many books by Soke Hatsumi and others that go into great detail about the Bujinkan martial arts. A good teacher and studying those books is a good way to start, I think.

Speaking of videotaping, have you heard of Shihan Rich Van Donks system of video feedback from his training group called the "International Bujinkan Dojo" formerly the American Bujinkan Dojo. Upon becoming a member, you can videotape yourself doing techniques, and for a fee, it will be reveiwed by an instructor and they will critique your taijutsu and tell you what you need to focus on. This can be researched at www.Ninjutsu.com. I hope this helps.
