What's the deal with all the secrecy? You sent me a PM with directions to training along with the instructors first name only. Is there something wrong with either him or his credentials that he needs to hide all this information? Maybe it's just me but I have a problem with either showing up to train or recommending someone to train with a person who doesn't provide information about himself.

You took the initiative to post about training on a public forum so it seems that proper Netiquette would require you to be a bit more forthcoming on the particulars. Then again, I'm quirky like that.

Depending on who this anonymous instructor is, whom you claim is both cool and good, I may.

Not very familiar with Seishin teki kyoyo, but if you're looking for meditation within the Bujinkan, try Dr Glenn Morris's Hoshin organisation. www.hoshin.com

Once again, im not too familiar with Dr Morris's organisation, save to say that he is ranked within the Bujinkan, but i believe his Hoshin organisation is more about meditation and such, rather than Taijutsu.

Hope this helps


How does hoshinjutsu classify as meditation within the Bujinkan?

Cheers David.. I've done all I can in terms of monitoring this and gave my Shidoshi the admin password too.

Should things get hectic, well, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. All entry fixes (3) in my inbox have been sorted. Hopefully this will grow even more.



Cool. Maybe in the map intro, you can include a support email address to that people can easily notify you (and your shidoshi) if there are any issues that need to be addressed.

Keep up the good work

This is a great idea with alot of potential. If you are going to manage it then you need to make sure you have the time resources needed to handle change requests in a timely manner. If you can't handle routine requests now, how will you handle it if and when the system starts to be abused? This is especially important since users are unable to modify their own entries. If its too much for you, then maybe you need to recruit some co-admins or hand the reins over to someone else.

I hate to burst your bubble but if you don't "do schools" then your going to have a hard time legally living and working in Japan for more than three months at a time (tourist visa) unless your a national from one of the countries (Canada, UK, Australia, etc) that Japan will allow to stay in on a year visa. Unless you have a BA/BS your not going to be getting a work visa.

This is what I have read and been told by several BJK members living in Japan. I could be wrong but I doubt it.

For those don't feel like dealing with ITunes or are having trouble with it, I installed both the Kutaki and Podgy'sPod podcasts as feeds in Opera which is working fine. You can easily download from there. I haven't tried this as of yet with Firefox but would imagine one could do it in there as well.

---edit---

In Firefox using Sage extension it works for me as well.

So which is it? Your second post you said you were a doctor in this thread.


No, what he said was that he has been doctor FREE (meaning, I assume, that he hasn't been to a doctor). Maybe slowing down when reading posts would be helpful either that or you need to visit your eye doctor.

Speaking of one's English not being as good as they think...

Aren't you really trying to say that people have their BLINDERS on? I may be mistaken, but as far as I know, blinders are what are put on a horse to keep it from seeing what is to its right or left while blinkers are what most of use when driving to indicate the direction we are turning.

...but i was wondering seen as i have never attended an actual TaiKai...


Quote:

so i suppose when a Taikai does near should i just ask my Shihan for some information in regards to what the theme will be, the location and the exact price, obviously excluding travel and acomodation fees.


If by "actual TaiKai" you mean the big seminars with Hatsumi Soke, then the only one your going to be able to attend is in Japan. If your question is in reference to seminars in general, then you should have plenty of opportunity to attend one in your "local" area.

In regards to asking your Shidoshi/Shihan... Some of your questions on Kutaki might get you better, quicker, more personalised answers if you were to ask him/her instead of the general populace.

I appreciate your enthusiasm for the art and hope that your month turns into months, years, and decades. Given that you are new to both the Bujinkan and this forum, my suggestion to you is that you make liberal use of the 'search' function as there is plenty of discussion on here to keep you busy for a very long time.
