Excellent post. The kihon happo is the alpha and the omega of taijutsu.

Do you mean a good plane fare to Osaka and then trek to Tokyo? The difference in plane fare would want be fairly substantial to warrant doing that. Personally I would not.

I've done the Tokyo to Osaka trip twice, and on the Shinkansen. It's a long way to go by bus and do you really want to spend a whole day travelling (when you could be in Noda training) on a bus?

I think if you are going to spend some time in Osaka (which is cool) and then get the SKS to Tokyo, then go for it. Otherwise I doubt it's worth whatever you are saving in plane fare for the reasons abobve.

P.S. If you go to Osaka and you have time, you should go to Kyoto too.

Yes I know Alan and I would recommend going to see him. You have nothing to lose right? :)

Perhaps e-mail Alan about training generally and the seminar in particular, I'm sure he'll be more than happy to tell you about both.

As for the seminar, I guarantee you will not have seen anything like this before, however you should contact Alan as he is the organiser and host of the seminar, not me. It's not really my place to talk about it.

Regards,
Gerard

Hi there,

You should try Tombo Dojo http://www.tombodojo.co.uk/

In fact, there will be an excellent seminar there at the end of January. See details in the link.

Gerard

Hi there,

Can someone direct me to a blurb about what the film is actually about. Is it a documentary? How long is it etc.?

Thanks,
Gerard

"Anyway, because we face no serious challenges or competition outside of what we set as our own personal goals there probably will never be a push as an organisation to create exceptional (elite) practitioners"


Interesting topic (and idea). My instinct is to say that the organisation does not really matter, only transmission of the art(s).

Ultimately you fight yourself and the only person who can/should push you is yourself. If it takes an organisation to push you then you are probably never going to be that good anyway because you don't have the desire and perseverance to get better or seek out the right teacher to help you do that.

I'm not sure Duncan's suggestion would work for the reasons I have set out but also the fact that there are so few people outside Japan good enough.
