Damien, I think you may be missing the point of Darren’s post. I don’t mean to speak for Darren, as he does a good job for himself. But what the hell, here it is. Yes, if the art you are studying works for you, the efficacy, etc., then terrific. If however, you discover that the people directly teaching you either made up the their art’s background/history, made up their background of study/teaching credentials, say they are teaching one art but are actually teaching another and knowingly lied to/ deceived their students, what would you think of their character? Forget the effectiveness of what they are teaching for a moment. If you want to buy a duck from a salesman and he gives you a chicken and tells you it’s a duck, do you think he is someone to be buying from?

If your tengu is big and has a very long nose then it should be that much more easy to catch and throw!

I like the Ronin Brand Super Heavyweight 16oz. Karate gi. It holds the black color fast forever. They do tend to over cut a bit so there is a little extra room, not a bad thing though.

Good luck.

Isn't it also an obligation for the senior partner to let the junior know how to practice (and to also feel the practice) of a harder way than the junior partner wishes or is willing to train. Some may not be willing to feel this, however this is budo and you need to feel it.

I do not post much. But I must say, Jimmy, you need to relax a bit. You really are coming off heated and attacking folks, rather than having an honest discussion, debate, discourse, etc.

Things like your Kutaki "conspiracy theory", post #60 "...your boy, Mr. Roley...", and other comments, don't help how others perceive you.

I think, and it looks like others too think you have some interesting topics and points for discussion, but you may want to take a look at how you say it. You may not care how people take what you write but that doesn't really matter here. If folks consider that you are coming off aggressive, even personal attacks, that's how they take it and are not going to want to have a discussion with you.

Just something to consider. Happy posting.

Going to keiko when you are not feeling up to it, has happened to me many times and continues to happen on occasion. The end of a long work day, and the long drive ahead to the dojo, can impede one’s path. Every time though, after practice I say to myself, how did I even contemplate not going? As Dale said, “support of your buyu thumping on you can help immeasurably.” True words my friend.

Ganbatte.

Getting to this a little late but, Tim Bathurst makes really nice fukuro shinai. These are probably higher quality than you were thinking of, at least as I interpret from your posts, but I figured I would put it out there.

My training partners have taken a beating with my Dai-Sho...er, I mean my Dai-Sho have taken quite a beating.

Good luck.

But when you train in your backyard or in the garage, outside the comfort zone, you find out who the more dedicated students are. Besides, how many students do you really need anyway in order for you to practice this budo?

There are benefits to both types of learning environments.

Doesn't that bring other problems with your learning Japanese, unless you like your gender?


Sorry. By that I mean gender specific language.

You can find bamboo at the retail store Pier 1 for relatively low cost.
