I couldn't agree more with this original post. I just returned from Japan also, and training with Rob really brought home many concepts about timing, distance, and the right ways to affect your opponent's balance. I have already recommended his articles and website to everyone at my home dojo.

Quote:

To answer some questions, the letters are mostly written in kana so I'm not sure which 'kara' is meant, but I'd imagine it's 'empty'.



Is this normal? Why would a Japanese person in the 20's looking to:

Quote:
establish Karate-do as a single unified art and organization on the mainland modled [sic] after the Kodokan
use the kana and not the kanji in his writing?


Surely a person like this would know the appropriate kanji.

I am not trying to call Mr. Johnson into question. I am honestly asking (as a non Japanese speaker/writer) is it normal for fluent people to write primarily in kana?

I know only enough to know that that seems like a lot more writing and effort.

Mr. akoufalis,

You should find someone at your resident dojo to beat the living snot out of you -- just to make sure you're good and ready.

When I Google "DHE" as you suggested, should I be primarily interested in the Department of Higher Education, Design Human Engineering,Dependable Highway Express, or Defence Housing Executive?

For "NHR" should I focus my reading on National Health Realty (whose portfolio, by the way, seems to be doing well), NHR Essential Oils, or the National Hot Rod Association?

I did find this reference for NLP: "Sanghera, a columnist for Financial Times (London, 2005) writes, 'critics say NLP is simply a half-baked conflation of pop psychology and pseudoscience that uses jargon to disguise the fact that it is based on a set of banal, if not incorrect, presuppositions'"

And also this one: "Extraordinary and unsupported claims have been made by some NLP promoters, including claims of the heightening of perception to allow a novice martial artist to beat an expert"

Apparently the guy who formed DHE is a gem. He was tried and aquitted of 1st degree murder. I bet he envisioned being aquitted in a dream like state. Too bad he didn't visualize winning when he lost his Supreme Court trademark infringement case with the NLP people.

Were these the references you wanted me to Google?

Fish,

I'm not going to offer you any platitudes. Instead I'll actually attempt to answer your question. Follow this link:

http://www.winjutsu.com/winlinks.html

It lists dojos in California. Email these dojos or call them or visit them or whatever. Explain your situation and ask them if they are interested in taking you on as a student.

Fish, I see your interests aren't in My Daughter, Verdandi but in My Daughter "Verdandi".

I am making an assumption that your use of quotations is intended to set off words specifically referred to as terms (eg. I know randori isn't "real" fighting, but does anyone really care that much?).

Verdandi

One of the Norns from Norse mythology. She handles predicaments in the present.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verdandi
In Norse mythology, Verdandi (ON: Verðandi), also known as "Verthandi", is one of the three norns, along with Urd and Skuld. Her name literally is the present tense of be or "to be" and is commonly translated as "in the making" or "that which is happening/becoming". She is the present moment. As one of the Norns she is a guardian of the World tree, watering it from the sacred well and keeping the deer of the four directions from chewing the branches, as well as a component of man's destiny.
