Nate, I agree that if one keeps training they will get better, but only if they train in a way that LET'S them get better.


So true, Mr. Martin. Something Bud Malmstrom told us during class really stuck with me: Practice doesn't make perfect; PERFECT practice makes perfect!

I have been thinking alot about what Hatsumi Sensei said in December about touching the opponet with one finger then striking. My take on it is that it is a way to search and confuse the opponet in a sense trapping him in a thinking process then striking when he is confused.


Is there a discussion on this board concerning this? Or, a video or other source? I'd love to learn more about it,

Dave

>>and I guarantee if you spend the time to go down there instead of snidefully looking down your noses as if were the expert on every ninjutsu lineage in the world, you'll learn something<<

Yeah, and just think of the wonderful photo ops which would be presented to Mr. Law when we do!

Seriously though, that's utter b.s.

I might be new to the board but I'm not new at all to scuffles. Having squared off with guys only slightly smaller than Mr. Slice, I can tell you IN GENERAL TERMS strategy which may work. First, if you're smaller and physically fit make him swing and miss as much as possible and also chase you around-- the big disadvantage to any big fighter is that he will tire more quickly than a smaller man.

Generally men this big are used to and expect to be striking and constantly moving in as we lesser mortals keep the distance. Moving deeply inside at the right moment could really mix up his rhythm and timing. I can tell you that should I have the grave misfortune of meeting Kimo Slice in an altercation I would probably try to move way inside and then grab that beard near the moustache and pull for all I'm worth.

Slice's opponent made some huge errors and can't box for shit, in my opinion. He consistently led with his head.

My advice would be to ask a more senior student before class about those things. My experience has been that Bujinkan students are invariably polite and helpful about such matters.

I meant no public disrespect aimed towards Mr. Munthe's contributions to the Bujinkan, I was merely surprised at the course of developments in his teaching since I last looked him up.

Well, I have the book in question, however it really wouldn't render a very good image, especially when it would be blown up.

ANY images of Hatsumi-soke would be good, however that one in particular is a favorite of mine.
