I seem to recall Nakadai-sensei in Tokyo offering a course that included suiren. Interested parties may wish to inquire with him.

Shawn et al,

As one of the few people on this board who has trained in person with Mr. Sonnon, I feel compelled to speak up before this thread becomes a complete vortex of negativity on the matter.

My experience with his work has been overall overwhelmingly positive. He has developed his body of work for some time independently of his training in Russian martial art, and I can see specific improvements in his programs over the years.

Foremost, working with his Intu-Flow program (more or less, an evolution of and improvement on the Warrior Wellness program) has improved my joint health and mobility and eased my various hitches and pains, from knees that used to hurt to load and flex, to chronic lower back pain. I have personally made Intu-Flow the foundation of my own physical culture practice and training.

If you find yourself in Osaka, look up Ryan Hurst, a head coach under Scott Sonnon. The RMAX/CST media have value but they are no substitute for hands-on training (or doing the work oneself).

Feel free to PM me and I can point you in the direction of more current resources.

Dale,

I enjoyed that. Better taijutsu than some.

A nice article IMO on the drilling process here....http://aliveness101.blogspot.com/

Dom,

Matt Thornton's recent article is so good, it deserves its own thread here. Even though he is mostly discussing BJJ, one can read between the lines, IMHO. The importance of experiential learning should not be minimized.

Cheers,

Mr. Meik Skoss addressed this issue on swordforum.com. I would rate his as an educated response.

Would 'open the guard and back out' be considered a "pass"? Seems like a different mentality.

Ari,

I have had the pleasure of witnessing training in Katori Shinto ryu and the 2nd clip is definitely kata. The practitioners depicted appear to have a good sense of timing and rhythm. Nevertheless, it's predetermined, scripted kata.

Mods,

This thread has way drifted, as Doug's blog made no mention of strength training, power training, resistance training, or the like. Can we break this thread out?
