Ok, here's a question....why should/do we care about what anyone else says? If you're speanding all that time and energy getting worked up about this, you're wasting time you could be using to train!
And what difference does it make if someone says bad stuff about the Bujinkan? Is it really that important in the great scheme of things?- only if you give it credance! We've been blessed to have this training available to us, just take advantage of it and forget about the others....after all, are you training for them, or yourself?

How was he received? I've heard Hatsumi has made the ruling that anyone training with him (Hayes) will not be welcomed in the Bujinkan.

Bushindo??? Only if you want to pay an arm and a leg.....I like Van Donk, but he's a bit pricey. Check buyubooks.com they have them for about $12

I think what they are trying to get accross to you is that what you are referring to is more hollywood than reality. Ninja didn't really run arround with swords strapped to their backs.

Here's a very low cash way I have used in the past....not the best, but it's cheap! Take your bo (assuming you have one) and get either some sturdy cardbord or thin wood (balsa wood) and cut out the shape of the blade. At that point you can either duct tape it to the end of your bo or make a slight cut into the bo and fix it that way.
Like I said, not the best by any means, but it's cheap and easy.

I would aggree...keep it simple! you want to keep any training as simplistic and natuaral as possible. I think what would be more important would be awareness training....being able to identify threats and evaluate situations and enviornments. Also, have your friend take a serious study of the local culture and customs....the key is to try to blend in, not stand out. Just my 2 cents

Well, I'm sure I'll get people argueing this point, but here I go.....along with my Bujinkan training I also do Xing Yi (combative internal chinese art) and they advocate striking at a post. Now the point to this isn't to "harden the hands" or anything like that, but when you hit something solid and stationary (not all out at first) you get used to putting more into it by trying (mentally) to move an unmoveable object. Now imagine if you're used to striking in that manner what would happen when you strike a person!
I guess the moral of this is that it depends on how you're using it.....the smashing the hands to make them tougher I disagree with, but if doing it to develop power and proper alignment, well that's a different goal.

When I did Iaido training in the past, the explaination that I got was that you could tell by the pitch whether or not you were keeping the blade at 90 degrees with the ground.
For what ever that's worth, there ya go!
