Just what is going on with Kutaki? All I'm seeing is SPAM posts, one after another. Anyone know why this is happening?

Sir, this is a site for issues involving the Bujinkan. It is not for posting about football no matter how much a fan of that sport you are.

Well gentlemen, on that issue we do all agree! I do not see a time when I will not also still be learning this art! It is so huge in its scope and so adaptable to any situation that continued study and learning are a given.
On the opinion on the kata and the different ryu ha we may feel a bit differently. I look at kata as having only one purpose, that of transmitting in a visual active manner a basic and important principle of movement. I see our art as principle based, it is NOT just a collection of kata to be learned and catalogued. I don't agree with either kata or technique collection and memorization. What I do think is primary is that we understand the principle upon which that kata or movement is based. When we understand those basic principles we have the tools to adapt to any situation. That is what I feel is important. We need to reach the point where there are a thousand changes and we get no surprises. We just adapt to what is needed and can do this because those basic principles of movement are as ingrained, so natural to us that we just 'do it'. The term muscle memory is as close as I can come to describing what I mean.
My first trip to Japan was January 1988 and I went three years in a row before medical situations caused a break until 1995 and since that time I have gone every year for about 10 days of training and most years a second trip for the Daikomyosai until that was ended. Each time I get more insights which do change as time goes on, but what is really important to me now is what Dr Hatsumi is saying. What he does is just proof of the value of his words.

Giuseppe, there are "levels" of understanding on these things and while, at the beginning level, that may be true, there is MUCH more to these kamae then just one direction. What you were taught was a very beginning level, not the totallity of either ichimonji or jumonji.

This site is not for unpaid advertising. We also require that you put an actual name with your membership and I see you have not done that.

I would disagree with you James, what Darren wrote is not a 'bold assumption' it is a demonstrated fact. I also have worked with police and military. Those who are in those professions often look at their training as "life insurance" and many can relate experience where their training saved their butts! Many that I have worked with have come back to tell me about such experiences.
I am happy that you are finding value in your training -- good for you. However for you to presume that the organization deserves "a laughing stock" reputation based on your perceptions of the people in it is what is flawed. No matter what endeavor one looks at there will be a spectrum of skill level to be found and it is always the 'consumers' responsibility to check out that skill level before accepting it, especially if it will affect your own well-being. The people who most often, in my experience, disrespect the Bujinkan are those who really don't know it and are parroting someone else's opinion. I greatly value the training I have and continue to get --- in just normal life situations it has kept me alive. The benefits are NOT just about being the "baddest" fighter, they are about being the most successful at living.
Darren, I thought your advice to Joshua was excellent!

That's an interesting take on the oni-kudaki ----- I suppose it would really depend on the 'uke' or the one it was being done on and their muscle mass in both the arm and shoulder.

Think of the oni-kudaki as a 'leverage' technique. You are using the 90 degree bend of the elbow to put leverage on the shoulder joint and if done with purpose it WILL tear the arm right out of the shoulder joint. So no it is NOT just a take down but will destroy the joint. The only way to practice it is to do so very carefully and slowly or you will cause injury.
