Yeah, I spoke brashly and said nothing. I will delete, or request deletion of this login id.

To clarify something I mentioned, by saying "most fights are..." I meant most fights that I personally had experience in or dealt with in some manner. Different people may have different experiences. Also, by "mutual", I meant that all participants chose to enage the other until violence ensued, usually starting with back and forth comments, then threats, then standing up to one another. Then, it does physical. Or, in the case of an ambush attack, the victim goes after the assailant in a kind of revenge attack - justified or not, they are no longer escaping danger but attacking. That makes the whole situation "mutual".


There are exceptions, but they were the minority.


I this is the case, why are you still walking the streets, Mr. Dumas? Shouldn't you turn yourself in to law enforcement so that you will no longer assault people? Last I checked, assault was a crime.

What were you doing in Saudi Arabia, Mr. Martin?

Goddamn, it's gotta be hard participating in a discussion forum without discussing anything. Talk about a foolish perspective that you have, Mr. Duncan!

- so I did not get closer to knowing what the Test is like. So after a while I lost this curiosity and I gave up asking about it because I saw that it was useless for me.

Why did you choose to capitalize "test" in the quote above?

Hmm...
I would not have been able to go to Japan or to foreign seminars without the net. Just so that we don't forget that the coin has two sides...

Anyhow, in this article I see more of a suggestion to keep the balance, than bashing the net.

I must respectfully disagree.

If you have good relationships with good instructors, you will get the "good stuff". You will find your way to Japan, you can attend foreign seminars. The internet is bad the Bujinkan. It is not a "two-sided coin" IMHO. In 1993, when I started training, Bujinkan was really good, and Internet useage was limited. Everything I needed to know I learned from my instructor, whom I had entrusted to instruct me, when my instructor felt I needed to know it.
If you surf and surf around the net, you may find that you have accumulated more "scholarly" knowledge than your instructor has. 2 of the 3 Shihan and Shidoshi I have studied under consistently, (were my primary instructor for at least a year) were family men and professionals. They were great repositories of information reagarding budo, but they did not memorize densho. May Japanese Shihan are like this, no? Bujinkan Budo was not the primary focus of 2/3 of my instructors lives, they trained to be better people, not better martial artists, (I think, anyway. I do not speak for them.)
Back in the day, when even Kihon Happo was "secret", you didn't just let anyone "in the club". You shared information with people you trusted, people in whose hands you placed your life everytime you trained. Because things can go wrong in the dojo, and training in bugei is a dangerous thing.
I think the "free sharing" of information is wrong. I think it undermines the nature of ninpo, and the way of warriorship. There are many ways that Bujinkan budoka can reach out to their communites and our world, this is "Ninpo Ikkan", I think. I don't think that the way Bujinkan budoka "reach out" should be with .avi techniques of metsubishi/kyoketsushoge waza.
(Although those do rule)

Thank you for your consideration.

Top of the morning to you, Chap! Shihan Van Donk's HSC has been discussed at lenght on EVERY MA forum on the Web. I'm serious, every single MA forum on the Web has one or more threads dedicated to this topic.

A new innovation in data archival software was recently developed. It is called a search engine; with one, you can search for information on the inter-web by inputing "key words" in "search engine". BTW, (or "by the way" in Interweb palance) Kutaki no Mura contains a search engine. Using the search engine, you can find an answer to almost any question you may have regarding this Budo. Do a search, learn something, the search some more. You could literally spends hundreds of hours scouring Kutaki; but that time wouldbe better spent training, wouldn't it?
