Yes, I was there and mcguirkm's account is very accurate.



Let's refer to the purpose of Kutaki no Mura:

What is Kutaki no Mura?
Kutaki no Mura is an online discussion board which focuses on the Bujinkan martial arts of Hatsumi Masaaki (Noda City, Japan). Anyone is free to participate, no matter the degree of experience you may have or the martial art (if any) that you may have experience in. Discussion is kept Bujinkan-centred, however.


I propose to close this thread due to trolling and non Bujinkan centered discussion.

MO guys, simmer dan nah! Benkyoka has been training and living in Japan longer than you have trained in the Bujinkan and like he said, that is irrelevant to the issue. What is relevant is his comment that your teachers movement and Soke's are mutually exclusive.

BTW, are you in the Bujinkan? Is your teacher certified with the Bujinkan also? If he is, does he seek consistent training with Soke and his Shihan(s)? Does he train with any teachers higher level than him so he can further his own study of the art? Good thing to know so you'll see why it's similar but not the same. If he's not, it's not a problem as its still martial arts. However, it's not comparing apples to apples. Just that tagging behind the coat tail of the Bujinkan to promote your own style is not cool. IMHO.

As for body alignment, Aikido, Judo, other martial arts....even dancing can use that reference as well. The study of Feldenkrais focuses on balance and movement as well. From the videos, I gather that what is done is how training is in the late 80s / early 90s.

Make comparisons by either going to Japan or go train with someone who does so frequently. Good luck in your quest.

Truly and awesome seminar at Anthony Brooks's Bushigokoro Dojo in Woodstock, IL. There was a good mix of practitioners of every level taking part.

Rob has the keen eyes and sensitivity to pick up the nuances taught by the Shihan and Soke. His method of relaying the concepts are very light hearted, hence making it easier to make it our own and blossom through it. If you had been following his series in the Kutaki no Ha podcast, training with him would demonstrate that the Primary Distance, Closing The Distance and Enveloping The Opponent is even more precise with proper timing and flow. As we all know, we really have to feel it in order to absorb and understand Hatsumi sensei's Budo totally, and Rob definitely did justice to it. There were other hints and tips that when place in writing doesn't make sense unless you are at that instance enjoying this tasty Budo.

There were also practitioners from other arts attending, including a visually challenged gentleman, and by the end of the seminar, their movements were pretty impressive as they flowed smoothly rather than being rigid. I can truly say that

A seminar to definitely attend if he is in proximity to where you are.

I own both the Oniyuri and the Onibasu but I have to say Oniyuri performs way much better.

The former was handed to one of my members and it was her first time with tameshigiri. No problem, cuts like a hot knife through butter. This of course was also backed up with proper taijutsu.

The video demos on the Cheness site speaks volumne http://www.chenessinc.com/video.htm Value of the blade exceeds the price if you are into practicality and not into cosmetics. I highly recommend it but also wished Paul Chen (not Hanwei's) would not use the Bujinkan name. It would be nice if he sends a few of them to Soke and the shihan as a gesture of gratitude. Perhaps we can suggest that to him, neh?

Ed,
I am sure your backlog is pretty long. Perhaps an estimated time of delivery would ease the minds of many of us. Congratulations, this just proves that your handiwork is much sought after.

David,

Kevin Clarke is in Lombard, so it's pretty close to you. His website in Winjutsu shows it as the Bujinkan of Northern Illinois. Kevin has a very good understanding of the art and trains regularly with other teachers as well. Hope this helps.
