I was fortunate enough to train with him many times. My condolences to his family, students, and friends. Dick will be missed.

Rob was at our dojo (cyberninja is my current instructor) last night and taught class. It is excellent stuff. He has very good drills for teaching very subtle movement while controlling the attacker without setting off reflexive actions. His Shinnenjutsu seminar is excellent!

Two separate things.


Daniel, I certainly agree with the above, no doubt. But I believe there is more than meets the eye with the whole smiling bit.

I should have finished the sentence and said... "It does help relax while training."

Now... I firmly believe that one will fight how they train. :)

Call it what you want.

But you did say...

At the moment Im trying to put down all my bujinkan knowledge onto paper not only for my own study purposes, but so if i ever start my own club (a long long way off, I know, lol) then my students will have the benefit of a structured syllabus.


IMO, what you write today will likely mean far less to you in as little as 6, 8, or even 10 months. It will be even less useful to anyone else. Just my two cents worth.

Of course it will improve in accuracy over the years, and it will be interesting to monitor the course of my budo journey. Either way, surely it cant do any harm?

Thomas G.


if you want to look at your budo journey, just have a beer and reflect on what seemed to frustrate you in the past that you no longer even think about when you are doing it.

Again, just my opinions. Take them for what they are worth.

Rob's seminar yesterday in Orlando was awesome! There was a great turnout! I am guessing there was around 30 people there. I look forward to Rob's next seminar when he returns next year.

I just got back from a great seminar in Sacramento California with Rob Renner. The topic of the seminar was shinnenjutsu. I think Rob was especially good at translating the japanese concepts in to english. He was able to demonstrate the elements of shinnenjustu in terms of visual perception and proprioception. Through this approach he was able to bring the basics of taijutsu into a new light for me. It was really quite illuminating.

I understand Rob will be out in Ocala Florida giving the same seminar on the 22nd. I'd highly recommend you catch it if you can.

I'd also like to thank Joel Everett of the Bujinkan Martial Arts Center in Sacramento for arranging this unique event.


Thanks! Actually, Rob will be in Orlando, Florida Saturday Sept. 22nd. I will be there.

Now I wouldn't say that is artificially inflating "seeking" and "traveling" but those actions do put a value on the fruit of their labor. I think the same applies here.


I see what you are saying:

I am wondering if it applies to the previously mentioned "elite" group this thread is addressing. The actions mentioned in your post a bit ago don't align with anyone attempting to be placed in an "elite" category.

Maybe I am just not understanding again...

-Daniel


I really wasn't trying to indicate an alignment either way. I was just throwing out my opinion.
