Hi all,

For those who may not know, Quest has reissued Soke's Naginata, Nagimaki and Bisento video on DVD! At last the prospect of the Quest video series with perfect pause, chapter by chapter bookmarking and perfect slowmotion is just around the corner.

Just out of interest, which video do you think shoul dbe issued next?

A Big Thanks to Shawn
Deleted_
I would like to put a Big HUGE thanks out there to Shawn (Kouryu) for all of his hard work and endurance (nintai ) . I am sure this board was a challenge the first time and just a pain in the ass the second time around.

Shawn, we are all greatfull for this little piece of cyber-space to meet and enjoy talking about Taijutsu. It really is a unquie place.

Anyways, I guess what I am trying to say is, Thank You!

Take care and maybe see ya soon,

Re: Functional strength training
Deleted_
Lately, I have been asking myself the same question, so few months ago I started my personal training program and I've been upgrading it ever since. So, this is what I came up with.

You don't need physical strength for taijutsu, but your skill must be very high. Your whole body stands behind every punch, kick, throwing or leverage, and your body is stronger then any isolated muscle. But the problem is that you need to be very skillful (5 years of intensive training at least), so many people with little or no experience at all try with brute force, and don't get me wrong, many times it will work, but when you confront skillful opponent, you will see that strength may be a weakness.

On the other hand, agility, flexibility and endurance strength is what everybody should work on, especially on legs. These three are like triangle, there cannot be one without another. They are necessary for taihenjutsu (ukemi, kaiten, tobi,..). You have probably heard that Takamatsu sensei always carried twice as much water then other workers in matches factory when he was young (we are talking about few kilometers with 20 to 30 liters every day), and later he could run few meters up the wall horizontally with no problem. Takamatsu sensei probably never practiced weight training or power lifting.

Now after "wrote much, said nothing" here is answer to your question. My endurance training lists only three exercises: push-ups, sit-ups and squats. Why? They are the simplest possible exercises and you don’t have to train on machines. Push-ups train triceps, chest and shoulders, all very much needed for zenpo ukemi and similar techniques, sit-ups (or lift your legs while you are holding bar with your hands) for leg movement and good look on the beach ( ), and squats, because they work the biggest proportion of muscles in body (calves, quadriceps, abdomen, lower back). It is important to make as many repetitions as possible, and in the end, to stretch. With that you will lengthen and define your muscle and give it endurance and speed. (As you have probably noticed, legs are those that matters).

If you train like this (or similar, three times a week), you will see results in less than a month.
Your taihenjutsu, and maybe taijutsu will improve, and of course, your overall condition.

P.S. I would like to hear other ideas on this topic.

Welcome back everyone!

Here's a question to prime the pumps...

Have you found training w/ the kunai to be much different from training w/any other small bladed weapon? I.E. tanto, bootknife, etc..

Hello everyone! I was wondering what do you do for Functional strength training, just to be clear I am talking about strength training drills that add functional muscle for taijutsu and not just bulking up... anyone?

Welcome back to the new & improved Kutaki no Mura! Its good to be back up and running.

Here are some points to get people started:

* Registration
As mentioned on the splash page that was up for the last week, all members will have to register from scratch again. This is the biggest inconvenience in starting over, and we thank you for your patience.

* Signatures
User signatures will only work if you have the "Always use signature" box checked. Its under the signature setting in your user profile.

* Quote of the Day
Send me in some to use, and I'll throw them up.

* Karma
This is not set up yet, but look for it coming back in the next few days.

* Shidoshikai
The database was lost, so I only have records of some (not all) of the people who sent in their Shidoshikai membership card scans. If you want access, register as a user first, then email me from the same account you sent me your card from, and I'll see if I still have the email with your card scan. If I don't, you'll have to send it again. Hopefully you saved the scan.

*Backups
The server now has a CD-R drive, thanks to a generous donation from Nodakko. Backups will be burnt to CD-R once a week to prevent any further loss of data on the scale we experienced recently.

*Donations
I still have a record of those people who donated through paypal. The "onjin" kanji and the paypal link will be set up again in the next few days.

That's all I can think of for now.
Any feedback or suggestions can be posted in that forum under "Village Hall."

Thank you,

Shawn
