Takamatsu Sensei learned Kito Ryu in China from 大橋正明 Ōhashi Masaaki (one of his students that he taught in China who knew Kito Ryu and also taught at the Shinkoku/Nippon Seinen Butokukai ‘Manchurian/Japanese Youth Martial Arts Association’).

The Koshiki no Kata in Kodokan Judo are NOT the original techniques found in Kito Ryu. This is a very common mistake. They are EXERCISES based off of the principles of the techniques from one Kito Ryu scroll. The original techniques are much more realistic.

The Kito Ryu information contain in Sanmyaku comes from an old published book by Yokono Shizuji 横野鎮次. There were two editions of this book published in the Meiji period, one called Kitō Yūshin Hiden Jūjutsu 起倒雄心秘伝柔術 and published in Kobe in 1892 this seems to have been self published as no publisher is listed but the printer is listed as Oshima Yasunobu 大島安信; the other was called Jūjutsu Hiden Zukai 柔術秘伝図解 and published by the Shōbukan 尚武館 in Osaka in 1894.

The techniques described and illustrated in these two books are a sample of the original techniques of Kito Ryu and again are NOTHING like the Kodokan exercises of the Koshiki no Kata.

Kukishin Ryu has a connection to Kito Ryu when Kuki Nagato-no-Kami learned Kito Ryu from Takino Sadataka and created the branch: Kito Ryu Kuki-ha.

Both the Kukishin Ryu and Kito Ryu share a similar scroll. The Hontai no Maki. There are only small differences between the two in each Ryuha's version.

My old Jujutsu teacher Mike Depasquale Sr. learned a branch of Kito Ryu from Kiyose Nakae who had relocated to the United States. The techniques are again more like what you find in Sanmyaku and not in the Kodokan's altered versions.

For anyone interested in viewing the makimono of Kito Ryu there is a nice website here: http://bujutsu.jp/a18.html

Has anyone else been contacted by this site trying to sell a t-shirt with a supposed rare kanji from Takamatsu Sensei?

I asked the person to provide some background info on where he got the kanji and to show proof of his claim.

I am guessing the person used a dojo list on the net and contacted many schools.

The site is: www.seikobujutsu.com

Hello,

Thanks for the supportive words. Bu-Tube will be opened back up but for all arts soon. It will not be for the Bujinkan but any and all arts. The good, the bad , the ugly, heck even the funny! There will be channels for eastern/asian medicine of course.

I am going to mainly be posting from now on over on my thread on E-Budo from now on about Bu-Tube here:
http://www.e-budo.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40349

I will need to start a new thread for Bu-Tube over there where the Bujinkan is not the main focus. The old thread there actually needs deleted or locked as well so I can make a fresh start! I would like this thread locked as well so people do not distort it's focus any further.

I have asked a few times now that this thread be locked and closed but so far have been ignored. To post a stupid quote is not something I will waste time with. If people want to use the new Bu-Tube they can. If they don't want to use it then they don't have to. Bu-Tube will not be something for the Bujinkan again. I will however make a channel for the Bujinkan where site members can upload and share if they choice to do so there.

So people can continue to post retarded comments here. It won't matter anymore. Bu-Tube will be back soon just not dedicated in the way I would have liked to see it. So be it! At least my email inbox has drastically decreased with pathetic comments to me.

So if you want to find out about the new direction and development of Bu-Tube you will have to go over to my thread on E-Budo from now on. I wont be posting in this thread again.

Congratulations on being a coward and being deleted! Jerks like this ruin the Bujinkan!

Bu-Tube Closing Down

I have decided to close down the Bu-Tube project and website. I wanted the site to be something all of the Bujinkan could use and share together. Many people just do not think Bu-Tube is a good idea. Rather than continue the project and try to explain and defend my good intentions to people, I have decided that my time and effort will be better spent elsewhere.

I wanted to thank the people who have shown their support for the Bu-Tube project. I think overall a site like Bu-Tube which is geared all towards the sharing of martial arts could have been a good thing when monitored correctly.

I was just about to upgrade Bu-Tube with more features and security... However, It is not worth my effort to do a good thing when so many feel it's wrong.

Bufu Ikkan!

I will be upgrading the Bu-Tube site very soon to improve features, speed, and add a multi-language interface.

You will be able to select from 10 different languages. All the menus and text will then change into your desired language for ease of use.

Keep those member registrations coming!

REQUEST BU-TUBE CHANNEL

The real success of Bu-Tube is found here:

http://www.yotsumedojo.com/butube/request/

The more Dojos around the globe sign up for a channel to upload clips the better Bu-Tube will become.

I do understand there are some people due to the nature of their jobs will not be posting video of themselves on the internet no matter what level of security maybe in place. For example those with high level government positions.

So the "Bu-Tube Beta Test" continues with wonderful feedback so far from many people. Again, most of the feedback I have received has been what I consider good (which includes both for and against concepts). Just because I myself do not believe multimedia dilutes real training in a Dojo does not mean I am not listening to all the feedback that has been given to me here both in this forum and sent to me personally. With the feedback from around the world coming in I am able to make a better Bu-Tube site that includes everyones suggestions.

Question for everyone... Does the sharing of video clips constitute "spoon feeding"?

What I meant by this is rather straight forward. I have been in conversations with Hatsumi Sensei directly in Japan where he said he did not like open forum sites because it promoted more bickering between people rather then anything else. He quoted specific threads that were heated that used to be on E-budo. It was obvious that he had people report to him specific issues that were going down online. I'm sure others in Japan can add to this as well much better then I can. Again for me, a tool like a forum can be used in a good way or done poorly....

Quote:
As the proverb goes, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."


....Just saying that the road to hell is paved with good intentions is a sad statement to live by. To not try and create positive outlets in life because of that saying would be a strange way to live. Wouldn't the road to paradise also be paved with the same good intentions?

Anyway, so far I do not see how Bu-Tube is in any way representing the Bujinkan is a bad way. All members of Bu-Tube have a say in it's development and in it's content control.

Ok enough of the negative... Bu-Tube soon will be updated to the latest version of the software which powers it. This upgrade will bring even more security features. The need to have a general username and password will no longer be needed. To see the content of the site you will have to be a registered member. I am working with the software developers to make features that better fit the needs of a secure members only site.

Also, there will be a feature where you can upload MP3 (sound files) that are used in "podcasting". So if you have a Bujinkan related podcast you will be able to upload these files as well and share them.

The new upgrade will also allow you to quickly change the entire language interface of the site to your native language. So Bu-Tube will be available in your language soon. You will be able to access the languages in a drop down menu.

So again I will try and ask everyone to give Bu-Tube a try first before we all condemn it. A goal is achieved by taking steps forward...

You know I am usually a very quiet guy. I train just as hard as anyone else and I will have words with anyone who says otherwise. :)

The last post is way too much for me. Nope Bu-Tube like most websites all around the world does not have Hatsumi Sensei's stamp of approval. Hatsumi Sensei is very against forum sites and the like. You know like Kutaki no Mura. But Kutaki no Mura is not evil and it has rules and moderators. Kutaki brings Bujinkan members closer together from all around the world. Kutaki countered a bad mess that was on other forums. Now the Bujinkan has one forum that is Bujinkan only and run by great people. Bu-Tube is 100% the same. Bujinkan Run, Bujinkan Rules, Bujinkan Moderated. There is no video teaching allowed on Bu-Tube so before you come on an open forum, blast a good thing, and sign off. Maybe go look at the site first and watch it's development. Better yet learn how to share with more then your mouth!

The internet can be used in a good way or a bad way thchoice is ours! No where in the description of Bu-Tube did it advertise for a bunch of fools to teach through video! However, the main idea is to have a controlled environment that all of the Bujinkan can use together. I would rather have my son watch Bu-Tube clips then Sponge Bob! LOL

Anyway sorry for the rant but the tone of the last post was a bit to negative for me. A buddy in Japan recently told me something like Bu-Tube would just fail because he felt the best thing about the Bujinkan is the people but also the worst thing as well.

So really this Bu-Tube is a beta test of the quality of the Bujinkan who decide to use it. I feel that it could be an interesting site if Dojos from around the world register to have a channel to represent their Dojo and share "clips" from their training, seminars, or advertise their events. There are ads on Kutaki at the top for seminars.

How about we maybe agree to not be so negative before we let the positive happen! God forbid we do that right? No wait forget it... I say heck forget Bu-Tube or better yet forget the internet or better yet forget global communication and lets all go back to living in our own bubble!

My family loves the martial arts that I do. I am Italian. If you know us Italians our families are very strong. So before you throw a dig into family you had better know who the heck you are digging into! Bu-Tube is my way to give a little back to the Bujinkan which has given me so much. You see I do evil internet stuff for a living... like make and design websites, forums, multimedia... So If I can design a site that "we" can control and help people from all around the world communicate with each other... Well I am all for it. Hey ever hear of Skype... way powerful internet phone... lets people talk all around the world and see each other thousands of miles away from each other with video. Ok forget that stupid evil Skype! Close the whole Skype network down. I am sure our men and women living and dieing away from their family's wont mind at all! Because videos or photos can't capture anything right? Or maybe there is "In" and "Yo" to everything in life. Take a great idea like Skype and make a partnership with government agencies and we get what?... Opps!

Now I personally have thought hard about what Hatsumi Sensei will say about Bu-Tube. When I have a chance to talk to him about it directly I will. I will have real results from a beta test that has gone great so far! If he says please take it away, it will go away. So the life of Bu-Tube may be very short lived. If more so called "Buyu" from all around the world feel as the guy in the last post does then I am sure Bu-Tube will fail as a way to bring more people together.

Its just a website. It will represent the Bujinkan a hell of a lot better then many open websites do! LOL Anyway this is just my 2 cents back.

You said YouTube is doing fine?... DOH! YouTube has many illegal videos on it... Is that fine? You said all the time we spend programming... wow do you believe technology will just all go away some day? All programmers don't have a family that they love? Please!!! Anyway I believe the heart of an artist will find many ways to express itself no matter how hard others try to suppress it. I guess I am going to hell because I have good intentions and a clue on how to program a secure website with rules. WOW thats deep dude! Why don't you go fly on a plane designed by a programmer who did his job poorly! LOL Maybe you will love us "programmers" a bit more. DOH!

You know posts like the one I am responding to here make me want to hit the big delete key on the whole Bu-Tube idea... Personally, I think Sponge Bob has more intelligence!

I will give it to this weekend... I am on vacation with that family I never talk to and my son I neglect wasting my time "programming" another outlet for the devil to do his work. LOL

BTW you said you found this forum while you were looking for the new You-tube style Bujinkan site.... Shouldn't you be home hugging your family if we follow your mentality in the first place?
