Hi, everyone!

It's been a while. :) I'm wondering, where can I find some history about the Tenchijin Ryaku no Maki? I'd like to know stuff like when did Soke release it and if he mentioned anything interesting about it. Tried google but couldn't find anything definitive...

Thanks in advance!

I have been thinking a lot about this too. FItness DOES provide some of a base for our taijutsu, there's no denying it. Just try standing in ichimonji for a minute and you'll see what I mean! :)

So, what would be the fastest way to build a novice's base without compromising the taijutsu? Good form? Constant drilling? I remember the Shinden Fudo Ryu video Soke released. It showed the Shihan playing around in the forest, headbutting rocks, hitting trees and all that, before it started showing us the ryu-ha waza. Maybe all that kind of training is the way to build the base?

:)

If anyone actually gets it and checks it out, maybe we could have an honest review? :)

I used to carry daisho (aluminum training blades) to class. I carried them to class in a guitar case... it worked! :)

Correct me if I am wrong - I get the impression that Soke's deliberate decision to not impose and enforce a fixed syllabus is to help prevent us from missing the wood for the trees.

If he ever DID decide to order us to follow something based on the 6 revealed ryu, we already have enough to occupy me for a few lifetimes or so.

So I cannot imagine another 3 more ryu revealed in lurid explicit detail. Much less if we actually had to understand them to grasp Soke's art.

disclaimer: the above is MY opinion, garnered from reading Kutaki for years and talking with my shidoshi. I have not yet trained in Japan, either with Soke or the Japanese shihan, and so gauge the worth of my opinion based on that... :)

I was just curious as to what many of you think about Soke's leaving out 3 of the 9 lineages in this book. As far as I can tell there is no mention of the 3 following schools: Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu; Gyokushin Ninjutsu; Kumogakure Ryu Ninjutsu. Maybe we might see another disappearing act similar to Fujita Seiko's Wada-ha?


I think it's entirely possible. Let's face it, how many of us think we've done well enough with the 6 ryu-ha we've got so far and can handle a few more? He may think the world isn't ready for those 3, and just let them die off.

Or he may have decided to handle those ryu totally ninja-like and entrusted them to someone who will keep them secret. :)

2 main thots: it's his ryu, I'm happy with what he's opened up to the world so far, so I've got no complaints.

2nd: I get enough motivation for training just by looking at what he's already shown. I still don't think I've truly understood Gyokko Ryu and Koto ryu. I might freak out if the mystery 3 are officially part of the syllabus and grading requirements! :)

At the Taikai, when sensei ordered some students to do the kata, it was interesting to see. There were both correct acting and incorrect acting. The students who did incorrect way listened to translation of my reading. The students who did correct way read their own translated densho which was obtained from the other sources. Sensei smiled toward me, "Do you understand ?".

Well, I'd have been caught right there, I mean, if the reading of YOUR translation came out differently from what I thought it was supposed to be, I'd do it YOUR way.

Maybe I'm just a stickler for following instructions? Life seems to have grown a lot more complex now... :)

Hmmm... you're assuming my wife doesn't think I'm weird enough as it already is...

And thanks to an indulgent grandmother bringing my two sons to a screening of Kung Fu Panda, my boys are happily chanting 'kung fu fighting' all day while bouncing around. If they dare try that when she's in the middle of her korean soap operas I'll probably hear the screams all the way from my office.

I also remember those Ninja magazines of 80's, even from Turkey I somehow found some of the issues and still keep them. Harunaka Hoshino was the funniest with his skull figured Shinobi Gi.


There's just something about the ninja mystique that allows us to swallow pretty much anything. Glad those days are over! :)
