Gracies
Deleted_
I would also like to point out that, just because a Gracie fights one way in the Ring, doesnt mean they fight that way on the street. The Gracies have there background firmly rooted in street fighting as well as JuiJutsu. Like how we pratice Randori with each other, and how we would really apply taijutsu in the "real" moment of need.

Not to mention, they do have something most Bujinkan members dont, they are tough as nails and because they fight in the ring, they are confident at using the majority of there skills at full speed and contact. (Though I do agree the UFC has too many prohibitive rules to call it "real" fighting).

It all comes down to the person, not the art.

My 2 yen,

I'm sure you have trained sakuhi from Koto-ryu.
And Fubi from Shinden Fudo-ryu dakentaijutsu.


Do-jime is not the same as the guard used in BJJ. In grappling the guard is a defensive position in which the most basic strategies involve gaining control of their upper body (sankaku jime or arm bar) with your back on the ground. Any variations I have seen in Japan with soke have involved creating space for kicking, knocking the opponent back for leg control or sweeping to get above the opponent. The "space" is different.

From my experience in both, the style of mount you want to use is very different from the one used in grappling styles.

You missed the most important elements: timing, distancing, balance control etc
Hastumi-sensei once said that if you gain an understanding of these your can win even in a nuclear war.

At what rank does Hatsumi teach Kumogakure Ryu? Is it true that he used to teach it more openly awhile back?

I'm looking for information about this man. Everbody seems to know things about Manaka and Tanemura. What about Muramatsu? From the info I have gotten his training methods are different and hear he is really good. Does anyone what he focuses on in his dojo. I would just like to know a liitle more about his background.

Duncan,

So we don't use the "guard" position? What do you call do-jime with the legs?

I'm sure you have trained sakuhi from Koto-ryu.
And Fubi from Shinden Fudo-ryu dakentaijutsu.

What about the kata calling for "umanori" in Shinden Fudo-ryu and (I believe) Takagi Yoshin ryu? What is that if not a "mount" position [umanori = literally "mounting a horse" or "riding a horse"]?

In the Bujinkan I have encountered various overall strategic goals in different taijutsu exercises such as:
* escape
* restrain the adversary
* hurt the adversary
* knockdown or takedown/throw the adversary
* do whatever is necessary to protect life

I have seen this accomplished tactically through such means as:
* strikes (e.g. kosshi sanpo)
* grappling (e.g. torite goho, and the above mentioned "guard" and "mount" techniques)
* taihenjutsu (e.g. tonso kata)
* all of the above with weapons
* various combinations of all of the above

Can all of these be held to the test of "multiple attackers against weapons?" I would also say that none of them work against an assault rifle at 30 yards. Is that any less fair?

Mantra/ Religious Warrior Poetry
Deleted_
Well, I wasent sure right where to put this post. So here it is. I will move it upon request.

I know for some Religion can be a bit of a touchy subject, but for me, its always a constant intrest. (PS, Im not trying to convert anyone, lol).

Here is a Shingon (Buddhist) mantra from Fudo Myoo(Acala Vidy√¢r√¢ja) who is

" He is portrayed holding a sword in his right hand and a coiled rope in his left hand. With this sword of wisdom, Acala cuts through deluded and ignorant minds and with the rope he binds those who are ruled by their violent passions and emotions. He leads them onto the correct path of self control."

Nômaku sanmanda bazaradan senda makaroshada sowataya un tarata kanman. (Japanese)

Homage to the all-pervading Vajras! O Violent One of great wrath! Destroy! hûm trat hâm mâm (English)

Many mantra is like good poetry to me. It holds a wonderfull image in your mind.

Does anyone have a good passage from the bible about warriorship and christianity??

Hi Mario,

Probably the most well known books around the world (that and sokes) are the books written by Stephen Hayes. Im sure you might have already heard about him. For many people in the west and europe as well, this is how people first found out about *ninjutsu* and then about the real art of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu.

I have a few of his books from a years back and in my opinion they are great for fun and general intrest. Sometimes they even have some decent info in them for the beginner but try not to believe everything you read in any books (even if it was written by a Bujinkan/or former Bujinkan member). In general they are written (Hayes books) for the un-experienced person and alot for enjoyment value, not learning value.

One intresting thing in some of his books I did find, was his interpertation of Gogyo and Godai in Taijutsu and strategy.

Remember, its better to figure out rather than be told.... the same goes for reading something in a book. A good teacher guides you to the answers, not tells you. Give a man a fish and he is fed for a day, teach a man to fish and he is fed for life. ( or something like that)

Ask your Budo teacher for homework and train train train.

thnx for the reply and your wise words; I know that the black belt is not the goal (at least mine isn't) I just said i to make clear that I'm really enthausiastic about it, it's a way of life I want to live !; sport & live in harmony with yourself and your surroundings.

Every book or video from Hatsumi Sensei is good. For other authors I'm not so sure, maybe if someone read or watched it, they can suggest it to you.

And more importantly, Ninjutsu isn't about getting a black belt. It's not a sport and your goal mustn't be getting ranks so you can say: look, I have a black belt, I'm so powerful now. Belt only prevents from your pants falling down.

You said that you are new so think about it or maybe talk with someone who has more experience. Anyway, ninjutsu is the best because it's different.
