Shawn, has Hatsumi sensei been using it as a harden double edge blade like a spartan short sword or as a rope like movement of a Chinese blade?

Kaye, even if Noguchi sensei doesn't teach a basics class, look for the basics in his movement. You will find them there. Sensei will usually do each "technique" four different ways. You would get plenty of things to work on to improve your basics.

Ugh! I miss Noguchi sensei ;-(

I have concluded over the years that you can say KukishinDen or Kukishin Ryu, but not KukishinDen Ryu. The caveat is that our Kukishin Ryu (or KukishinDen) would be seen by other branches as Hatsumi-ha, and not necessarily the 'principal' lineage of the Kuki family's arts, although related in the past, and essentially the same art (or not, this is one of the many things no one in the BJK agrees on). These other branches are worth a look though, even if no more than a peruse on youtube.

As some of you may know, I also do kendo among other things. Martial arts (Japanese) share common roots and notions about discipline and training. Given this I think we can learn from other martial arts while training and perfecting our own martial art.

I personally like these two comments:

剣道は理屈じゃないんだ。自分から求めてガンガンやるんだ。やったら、ハッとわかる。
Kendo isn’t about theory. Its about seeking yourself through intense keiko. If you do this you will come to understand.

and

剣道は和なんだ。相手がいるんだからね。相手の気持ちを汲むんだ。一人でやるもんじゃないんだ。
Kendo is about harmony. You have a partner after all. You must consider your opponents feeling. Kendo isn’t something you can do on your own after all.

and one more lol...

守破離というもんは繰り返すもんだ。何段までが守で、何段までが破で、何段以上が離というものじゃないって、わしゃ言うんだ。いくつになっても基本に戻りなさいって言うんだ。
“Shu-ha-ri” is something you repeat over and over. Whatever grade you become “shu,” whatever grade you became “ha,” its not “once you get to x-dan” then you are now in the “ri” stage, at least this is what I believe. It doesn’t matter what grade you are, you must always return to basics.

Marty,

You have heard of the Gyokko Ryu (I think) technique about holding bees in your hand? You can't hold on so lightly or they could sting you, but you do not want to hold on so tightly that they are crushed and forced to sting you.

You could replace the "38" special with the bee.

Interesting that a bee is a hachi ( 蜂 )in Japanese and hachi is also eight ( 八 ) although with different kanji.

"Iaito" would be the actual sword used for iaido or iaijutsu.

So i would think he is talking about the sword lengths perhaps...

I have all the financial issues solved with the place.
Max I will have to pay a month is 500. I also have an arrangement currently with the location a 50/50 split of monthly fees collected. 50 to the location 50 for me.

I also get advertising and a person to answer phone calls and make appointments with that. Everything else is straight Bujinkan related.

Teaching newbies will be a bit of a challenge, it's difficult for me to decide a pace for the class, coming from Noguchi sensei's classes and all. I might have to slow it down a bit in the beginning and pick up the pace later.

I'll take what I learned from Noguchi sensei and my sempai cough* Mike cough* and figure out my approach. I am only doing it for my own training. If there were places closer to me, I probably wouldn't bother running a dojo at all.

I finally have a chance and a place to create a small Dojo for my own training. I have been a student for so long I don't know much about running a dojo or anything.


Are there things I should look out for?

I really only plan on teaching and having a dojo to further my own training and pretty much have an idea how I will teach, I just wonder if there are things I need to worry about when it comes to students.

20 years and finally starting a dojo...

Garbage is garbage no matter what the cost of something is.
Get something that has value from the get go is better than buying cheap and regretting that you have junk lying around.

Came across this discussion when looking for a practice blade for myself.

I'm a beginner with the sword and the unsharpened Musashi SS100 for $42.00 is a totally decent piece of equipment for studying the basics of movement, drawing, sheathing, and proper handling/etiquette. Not for cutting at all. When the time comes, and I am ready, I will invest in a good quality and obviously more expensive katana from a reputable creator.

Kind of like handling rubber weapons in military training and firing blanks during squad/platoon exercises before we pick up actual rifles and start popping targets from 25 to 300 meters with people running all over the place in the woods.
