I've been wondering for ages what does Hatsumi's finger posture in this photo mean:

Can someone explain?

Im not the best person to answer this since im far from an experienced taijutsuka, but here's what i think about bujinkan after my 2 years of karate classes.

bujinkan is more versatile, compared to the style of karate i used to practice. It has it's soft AND hard techniques(+ it's countertechs) and many weapons. The atmosphere is more relaxed i think - so are the instructors. I remember the first day when we trained ichimonji kamae and one of the instructors said to me: "Take it easier, think reggae!"

We dont train as much different katas in bujinkan than in karate, (karate=kata=karate)
and i think that's a positive thing.

I'd suggest you compare some local dojos, what they teach and how, just ask if you can
come watch they train. Some dojos might let you train for a couple of weeks for free so that you can see how it suits you.

would like to hear someone else comparing
bujinkan to his/her former (or present) art!

Despite Soke's reply, I've always found myself wondering about what training was like in the past, when they used to go at it 'hammer-and-tongs.' Does anybody know?


I read that in Japan they used to punch trees, making their hands bleed but eventually toughened. old style makiwara i guess..

i would like to know more too.

f we might not know about him, then why post a question asking about him? Hm...


Well,

if you wouldnt have known him, you would probably have read the pdf file, and then posted your opinion about it thus creating a conversation. You are right though, I'm convinced about him being a fraud. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

take care, ben

3) Which leads on to my next question. Would cross training in other martial arts then screw up the taijutsu?


That is what happened to me, I used to train karate at the same time with taijutsu, but finally abondoned it because of everyday practices that would only confuse me in the long run. Total dedication IMHO on only one art is more fruitful.

You should really consult with your Shidoshi before asking questions like this on the board.


Umm... Why?

Stick with Hatsumi-sensei's books for now. They'll keep you plenty busy.


That's my intention... There were plenty of opinions against ashida and opions praising him at amazon.com, he was just interesting in my opinion. Thought some of you would not know about him.

Well I just noticed you can download one of his books free at http://www.ashidakim.com/sotn.pdf

Any comments about Ashida or his teachings?? Is he a fake trying to cash with "ninjas"?

Any of you know any other quality sites where to discuss about bujinkan? All the links I found from google dont exist anymore or dont have any users

Thanks.
