Hello Archael,
Even though everyone around you may be doing bad things, safeguard your own heart. Do the right things and keep going. Training in this art is not about the rank. There may be times and long stretches were you will not receive any, and at other times it comes faster. You worry about your training and be studious, let those above you worry about your progress and where you should be. When it comes down to a real altercation, what hangs around your waist or a piece of paper on the wall is not what is going to save your life.
I would go talk to your teacher and see if you can find a solution with him. If you cannot, go above him to his teacher until you get the answers you seek. However, you may not like the answers you receive. If you don't, use them as an opportunity to fix the problem found and move on with your life or training or both if that is the course for your life. If your heart is good and sincere, there will be people in this art that will help you.

Mike,
Would you please private message me with an email address to you so we may speak in the darkness rather than the light?

Randy Sessions was one of my favorite teachers at B.A.D. as he was so painful. Pain is a great teacher but few want to attend its classes. Thom Humphreys is always telling me this.

Anyway, about the fish, its the same way here in Chattanooga. Catfish should be off the menu and other fish I think is two meals a month. 'round these parts, farm raised is best or farm ponds. When I do eat meat, I try to make it venison which I kill myself, no growth hormones. Also no fat exists in deer within the muscle as they store their fat on the outside.

Didnt want to start a flame war. Things I write about are based on my own experiences and I welcome correction and new knowledge always.

Hey Lance, YES,....Go DAWGS !!!!, I think they should have a good run this year.

The seminar was several years ago, I think the subject was Roppo Kuji, It was in a gym. Good seminar though; met allot of old friends from B.A.D.

No, I live, work, and occupy the universe in Chattanooga.

If I could borrow your pitchfork for a moment, and reverse roles... If you were obese you are going to lose weight by making any positive changes. Hell even the mental change of thinking you are doing something is enough for an obese person to start losing weight

(Yes you may borrow my pitch fork.)

The bigger challenge is not putting it back on, and the second challenge is blasting past your first plateau with weight loss.

I would also like to say that all that is needed to lose weight is to operate at a caloric deficit of about 500 a day. That would let the average person lose one pound of bodyfat in a week. You don't need to bake stuff on a rock to get thin, just look at Jared he was eating "low fat" subs with about 2000mg of sodium in them...

(not with or for someone with genetic blood pressure problems)



Sure, but what were you eating before? If you were hitting the value menu every day then pretty much anything you switch to is going to make you feel better.

(yes, and i do feel much better)

On the milk thing, I've known people who just can't handle milk, but I drink probably 2-3 gallons a week of the stuff a week, eat meat daily and manage to workout 2-2.5 hours six days a week. I think if I tried to do that on kelp and rice roasted on a rock I would fall over. Some people do well with milk and others don't, but most athletic people I know drink the hell out of it for the protein if nothing else.

(thats your choice, I choose not to.)


You can eat blueberries, which actually taste good, they fight cancer as well. Or how about tomatoes?

(I eat all of these)

There are plenty of fish that are not toxic, and if you are concerned about toxicity then get farm raised. If you are eating huge predator fish from a natural body of water every day then you might have some problems, but overall eating bigger fish can be fine as long as you do a small amount of research.

(am already aware of this www.noaa.com , and eat what is healthy I can find or go and catch my own, I am an accomplished fisherman)

Brown rice has fiber, but I can eat a bowl of raisin bran or a handful of figs and get more. Hell my morning bagel has 12g of protein and 8g of fiber, and I'll take the Pepsi challenge any day my bagel versus your rice on a rock any day of the week, the bonus being that no birds poop on my bagel and I'm not 100% sure about your rock...

(LOL, its not cooked on a rock and Im not starving. I trained 55.5 hours from a saturday to a saturdayin Texas in 80-98 degree heat and was fine, didnt pass out, or have any ill effects. But the problem with the processed stuff is exactly that, processed. They put in the preservatives etc I would not. Their choice not mine. Im not telling you you need to eat this way. I am saying these are my experiences to add to this conversation. Anyway, Im not saying im right and your wrong, the things you say are correct, but not for me. However, I would sit beside you while you eat your bagel and I eat my fruits or vegatables, and we would have a good conversation and probably training. We have met before at Wades seminar, and if memory serves me correctly, your a Dawg fan. Be good.)

I went and looked at the notmilk.com site and all my reasons for not drinking it are there. The growth hormones for baby cows is one, and the other that the acid content of the milk reduces bone mass to the point that it makes any calcium intake negligible. I had a girl I worked with for a couple of years call it "cow puss" which created a visual image that helps me not to drink it lol.
I find I'm healthier now since my diet is more natural. But the thing I have realized as papasan is always saying, "choices" and this one was mine to make. Yes, I occasionally eat world food, like last night on a date, but that may be once a week. I went through each component of the diet and researched its nutritional benefits and it is sound, IMO. The thing about farting is true but only if you don't do as soke says and eat too much, AND, don't give it long enough for your body to get used to it.
The thing is, with mad cow disease, and bird flu about to go pandemic, (www.birdflu.com) do you really want to be eating meat and chicken? Choices.

I can see all the points here, but let me play devils advocate. I have been studying this diet for quite some time (years) and over the past six months or so, I have lost 30 unwanted pounds and still have at least 40 to go.

This diet is a life change in eating habits. Some of the things I have noticed is increased alertness, feel nourished from what I do eat, takes longer to eat so i dont get as full, (the time it takes to eat seems to be equal to the time it takes for the stomache to send messages to the brain it's satisfied.), my fingernails are clearing up of ridges, (getting better calcium, milk does not do a body good.), no more indigestion, sleep better, wake up earlier having had better sleep with fewer hours, do not get as tired through the day, saves money, saves on the electrical bill, and this is just the beginning.

If one takes the time to study the nutrition gained from each component, there is a reason for it being there. For instance, red beans and shitaki mushrooms are thought to have cancer fighting elements, among other things, the sesame seeds carry very good minerals for the body as do the fruits and vegatables. Small fish mentioned in the diet are because they do not absorb the pollutants or poisons of larger fish as they are on the bottom of the food chain. Brown rice is loaded with fiber and calcium and is easy on the digestive system. Kelp, this stuff is awesome, because of some medical problems I have had in the past, I can see that it has very positive results. Tofu and miso are loaded in amino acids. No salt and no sugar for obvious reasons. there is much more to each thing and I have only hit a few highlights.

The way I would describe this diet is a macrobiotic pecetarian diet. These are my results, your mileage may vary.

Wow, talk about memory lane. I still have all the old ninja magazines I purchased as i recently found them in and old satchel I had when i departed from the Air Force. It was a good read and laugh at what was going on back then. I still have my old Shadows of Iga Ninja Society card and articles from that organization. Memory lane can be an enlightening experience. LOL

Anyway, I don't think it is as important as where we started as much as where we end up. A good heart will find its way. Yep, our notions and reasons back then might have been skued a bit, but i think the training is better, safer, and more fun now. The reality is that none of us would be where we are without each other, it has been a good journey, even with all its triumphs, hardships and misconceptions.
