Is there any official link as to the full text of that ban?

I havent thougt of it in a while, but maybe its better to take the collection of display.... I would be for either martial artists or with a license.

germany has a license if you own more than 2 swords or generalised cut and thrust weapons, you will need to purchase a collectors license with the police. then there are rules on how to secure the weapons so your visitors wont be able to "use" it for something

Hello, i am staying in japan next year for about a month and i would like to locate myself relatively close to a dojo.

Most i found so far are the ones in chiba but i heard there are others around, where one could ask for permission to train for a while.

generally spoken is there a list or something i could cross check with my accomodation possiblities?

What I would ask Soke if I ever had the chance of doing so?

For me quite easy. I wouldn't ask about technics or to be shown anything. I have never met Soke, so If I hade the chance and could muster the courage (don't ask me why, I am most of the times on the shy site, not wanting to embarass myself in front of a person I so highly respect), I would ask him to tell me about my favorite subject the kunoichi. There was only a small passage in one of his books and there is not much known about them and even asking here on the board didn't bring anything new. But he, I suppose, does know more about them. Then I would listen to all he tells me as he seems to be the only source I know of and I value his opinion and knowledge highly.

By the way, I plan to save and save so I make it finally to Japan this year , although I think the possibility to speak to Soke during that time is zero, but anyhow this question was hypothetical.

I do agree with the posts before. I personally don't care about grading, which is one thing that brought me to bujinkan in first place. No exam for grading, no competitions, as I hate to show off with everybody staring *arrgghhh*. So training only for me *happilysmiling* That were two of the main reasons for me, as i haven't heard anything about bujinkan before. I had a chat with the teacher in the beginning and he said, 'this is different to all the others'. I stayed and watched and I'm still here (not only watching anymore of course) anyway back to the topic. I was told grading is like putting a flower into a bigger pot not as an award but to grow into it. I still am growing *biggrin* and always wondering when presented another grade.

I don't know... I think i didn't mean taijutsu (everything without an actuall weapon other than yourself?) I meant something like the weapons kunoichi used in the past, like the fan, the hair pins or the use of poison regarding traditional female ninjas. As far as I came in my research the kunoichi had the same training as their male counterparts + some addtional things which they needed in their "job". I am actually trying to find out, or was at least what that additional stuff was and if today there is somebody who still knows. It doesn't seem like it, which is actually quite disappointing even given that todays female ninjas are nothing like the traditional ones, as they all have normal "jobs" (I asume at least) and are not trained as spys or something like that.

I have trained with many women in the bujinkan and there is absolutely no difference in the training as far as taijutsu is concerned. none of the women I have trained with had any problems with the training or preforming ANY of the techniques. Strength is a way to cheat in taijutsu, or make up for bad TDA. alos, Rumiko Hayes and Bonnie Malmstrom have at one time offered some kind of training for kunoichi no men allowed. also rumored,the physical aspects of ninpo taijutsu, because of the dynamics of the movement, that it possibly may have even been developed by a chinese princess.

You have to practice it on your own, because falling on your own, and being thrown or dropped are two different feelings, and the latter is shocking to your body, which is why your body panics.


@Areku we are converting our garage to a litte dojo so i hope to get some things done there. thanks for the tipp.

She also has a problem with a knee and has avoided building the strength to get low enough to roll properly or take good ukemi. People often do this reflexively to protect an injury.


@Fnord325 you got a good point there. In the beginning I hurt my neck while roling and the doc said I now am supossed to be more carefull as now that it happened once it could happen more easily. I'm always consious about it.
that could be a reason I guess.


yesterday in training i thought a bit about it and found that falling as a result of beeing thrown is easier with people I trust ( at least a bit) than with people I don't trust. sounds silly doesn't it? I think practice (and I guess alot of practice) it will ease and after your comments I hope it will go away eventually.
