I worked at a cutlery supply store and we sold some live blades. I asked the same question when we had a guy who used to sell the Cold Steel blades how they stacked up against the Paul Chen Practical series which was what we had. I was told for the money and durability that the Cold Steel ones where the way to go, I was acutally recommened the chisa katana being a little bit smaller of a build. Anyone heard anything about their Dragonfly series?

Sorry, I didn't realize that this was a touchy subject. The reason I asked here was because I don't really have anyone out here who's teaching me. The only time it seems like I'll be able to train for the forseeable future is when I go back to Colorado for a few weeks on summer vacation. Once again, I apologize.

When I was training in Colorado last time some people were talking about what was going to happen with Soke passes on. One of the people expressed some concern for the art and said that it might fragment and lose the art aspect of the martial art if that makes any sense. There wasn't ever any clear consensus on what was going to happen. Does anybody have any thoughts or opinions on this?

Hi. I've recently started looking into training in kenpo karate due to some difficulites with the only Bujinkan dojo in my area. I just wanted to know if anyone had any thoughts or advice for training in another martial art.

Hey. I was taking Japanese in college but since I'm also a computer science major I can't take the class anymore without killing myself work wise. I had the Rosetta Stone software recommended to me as a good resource to learn Japanese by myself. I was wondering if anyone had used this software and could tell me anything about it's merits and problems or if you could recomend something else that works. Thank you for ya'lls' help.

A thought for this, one of the things they might be talking about is sorta the way I was told I was supposed to be doing the sanshin no kata. Each techique sorta coresponds to one of the five elements, earth, water, wind, fire, void. Right? So ichimonji can take on a diffrent feel when you do it with an earth feeling(solid, low, immovable) then with a water feeling(flowing, smooth). Sorry bout the spelling and if I'm way off then I apologize. Hope that helped if I was kinda on target.

Sorry david. It said in the rules on the sticky that we aren't supposed to advertize dojos here so I wasn't sure if posting all the information would violate those rules. And this is gonna sound kinda bad but I've known Bryan for a year and don't actually know his last name. lol. Sorry if I seemed like I was trying to hide anything. If you have any other questions just let me know and I'll try and answer the best I can.

Hey, Is anybody here still looking for a dojo in Colorado Springs? I trained with a guy who's opening his own, really good instructor and a cool guy besides. Message me if you're interested or know somebody who is.
