You don't want knobs on your belt - it'd hurt when you did a ukemi!

If you get the Japanese IME for Windows (you may need to download it from Microsoft depending on the OS you're using) then you can type the kanji quite easily.

Hi,
Can anybody please provide me with contact details for one/any of the organiser(s) of the Kaigousuru 2006 Taikai?

I've got a couple of questions, but there's no contact information on the website.

Thanks.

I would add that:

1) a medical doctor usually signs: Dr. Name

And

2) a person having a doctorate degree usually signs: Name, PhD.

So, Dr. Hatsumi must refer to a kind of medical diploma of some sort.

Regards

I would disagree on that point. Whether one has an MD or PhD the title "Dr." is still applicable [as an aside the traditional use of "Dr." refers to someone with a Ph.D.]. If someone is entitled to use "Dr." in my (relatively hefty) experience they do so.

However, in reference to the original question, Dr. Hatsumi holds a Ph.D., although I do not know in what field.

At least make it interesting:
years training

number hours training in Japan
etc..

You can then pair continuous variables and do linear regression/correlation analysis. With one continuous variable you're stuck with mean, median, SD, etc...

You could, but it wouldn't be valid. You've got to be incredibly bold to assume that your sample population can be extrapolated to the target population in this particular case. You also would need to have factors such as location as covariates (which would then lead to econometric issues in this paticular analysis) and I'm pretty sure that you'd then find that there would be significant location interaction issues rendering any non-piecewise distributional assumptions invalid - thus the analysis is invalid.

Hi,
Which is the correct way of writing hombu/honbu - and are there any accents involved?

Thanks.

Hi,
I've been approached by a friend who has asked me if I would be interested in doing (i.e. running/teaching/instructing) a self defence class.

I think their aim is just one or two lessons, but I was wondering if anybody else out there has any experience in teaching a pure "self defence" class rather than budo?
And if so, what sort of syllabus would you suggest?

Thanks in advance.

As far as I see it you have three options.

1. Do nothing. They'll either get fed up and stop bothering, or things will escalate to a physical confrontation - at which point I agree with YamaMizu (above).

2. You could "take the fight to them" as it were. Verbally parrying could stop the problem, but again it could excalate it, and this time you could be done for provoking a fight.

3. Never leave the house again. It doesn't matter where you go, because at some point there's always going to be someone or some group that's behaving in that way.

There's also Sengakuji (the shrine of the 47 rhonin), and I was most impressed with the Meiji shrine.
Both are easy to find and worth a visit.

I'll have to find it out (it shouldn't be too hard), but I have details of trains and times to/from Shinjuku to Ayase and Shinjuku to the Hombu.

I used them myself earlier this year.
