I am wondering what everyones opinions on makiwara training is, please dont just say" oh, I heard it was bad, so its obviously bad" or visa versa. I dont have enough room in my apt for a punching bag, so i figured a makiwara might be good. Also , has the makiwara been traditionaly used in ninjutsu for training? any other suggestions on conditioning of the hands and arms would be great... thanks

opps....


I live in the tokyo area, shinjuku to be specific . I was also curious about kendo, wether or not it would be benificial to my training... its quite expensive , but my school has it. Ive searched a bit lately and still cant find anything on the basics of kendo, I heard its only a few movements, so maybe Kenjutsu would be better for me. Ill take any links,thoughts , help, or whatever else anyone would like to throw out there. thanks alot

Recently I have been very curious about kenjutsu, I have this incredible attraction towards swords I have searched and searched and cant find much on the subject of Budo taijutsu and kenjutsu, I have many questions, such as do they compliment eachother? I realize that Kukishin Ryu is one of the schools taught in budo taijutsu, but what about other schools of kenjutsu? Also, where can I take classes at? Most of the bujinkan dojos in tokyo?

Thanks alot

Actually from what I have heard, it is a cure for severe
casses of epilepsy. Ive seen a really crazy video on it, very interesting stuff. About developing a balanced neural network, evidently meditaion works, and more so than that binaural beats , which can actually help induce a deeper state of meditation. This is not an ad by any means:) but it is very interesting info.

Actually I have been talking to Takeshi Yamamoto and think I will visit Nakadai-sensei no dojo. It is closer and I have already made a friend there.

So what you saying is by studying in Japan, from soke, and his direct students I will be getting less of the "chinese phone line" effect.(the childrens game in which one child whispers to the next a word such as "fire" all the way down the line, and the last child normally ends up thinking the word is "liar", "tire", "wire") Thus gaining a better understanding of the art?

AHAHAHA, I put my phones email add. as my email when I signed up, so now I know right away when some one reasponds to one of my post! Thats great! Anyways, lol.

I had no clue they always wear tabi. How much do they cost, I have a martial arts place right by my Apt.

I guess another thing I was kind of wondering is if you learn faster in Japan? I realize that its dependent on the teacher, but in general more teachers here are higher ranked than those outside of Japan. Any thoughts, examples? I'll be here for 1.5 years at least, I hope I get a good base by then.

thanks,
eric

PS, If there is anyone else in my area that would like to train outside once it gets warmer, let me know. Im 21 year old male, if that even matters. I would just like to meet some more people here in Japan.

Hello, this is my first post here. I was wondering what are the differences, if any, between the two? Also, since it has been a few years since I was last a bujinkan member, how do I re-register? Im locsted in the shinjuku area if that helps at all.

thanks alot,
eric
