This topic reminded me of a short story I rode from Ninpo-Ikkan website some time ago.

A young boy traveled across Japan to the school of a famous martial artist. When he arrived at the dojo he was given an audience by the sensei.
"What do you wish from me?" the master asked. "I wish to become the finest karateka in the land," the boy replied. "How long must I study?"
"Ten years at least", the master answered. "Ten years is a long time", said the boy. "What if I studied twice as hard as all your other students?"
"Twenty years", replied the master. "Twenty years! What if I practice day and night with all my effort?"
"Thirty years", was the master's reply. "How is it that each time I say I will work harder, you tell me that it will take longer?" the boy asked.
"The answer is clear. When one eye is fixed upon your destination, there is only one eye left with which to find the Way."

Yeah, it's pretty good. It's been about 6 months when I watched it but I still remember something about it.

Some of the stunts are pretty amazing considering the fact that there is no cgi used.

I recommend people to watch it.

as to the yellow belt, i haven´t a clue.


At our Dojo, people under the age of 15 (or 16?) use yellow belts instead of green / red.

"Master Yumio Nawa did teach Hatsumi the art of Ninpo and Masaki Ryu - manrikigusari (ten thousand power chain), kusarigama (chain and sickle) and Edo machikata jutte tornawa atsukaiyo (sword breaking and tying cord). These and 18 other kobujutsu categories were taught. Hatsumi finished his training in three years and seems to still share common interests with that instructor. Both Hatsumi and Nawa are martial arts historians, writers and T.V. network advisors."

Heh, few weeks back I was on Arnaud Cousergues seminar, the theme of the seminar was: Roppô Kuji no Biken - Tachi Waza.

Tachi is pretty cool weapon when used properly.

I'm not sure, where should I post this - But I'll post it here.

I would like to know, where can I order decent indoor tabis near Europe, since I live in Finland.


Thank you in advance.
