What is the reason that soke's assistants sometimes put 吉日 (lucky day) as the day on the (dan) certificates?

It is very easy:

If Hatsumi-sensei deceides that you pass the Godan test, you pass it.

If Hatsumi-sensei deceides that you're not going to pass it, you're not going to pass it.

Watch the videos again and you'll notice that (at least nowadays) he stops the cut and recuts. If he does not do this people get hit. This means no one would escape his cut without his help.

The second time it is written (as it was already pointed out) with the following kanji:



edited: I just figured out it is the same kanji Kotaro already indicated. But because his kanji is shown very small it looks like another kanji at first hand. You have to drag&drop it to another program first and enlarge it.

I‚Äôm sorry to interrupt but what we call "blinding powder" is called 目潰し(めつぶし)Metsubushi.

And never "Metsubishi" or even "Mitsubishi"!!!

Using false words over and over again (this is not the first thread about Metsubushi and therefore I already corrected this once) is a potential danger to the Bujinkan society.

You say: "and we all know they came from Gyokko Ryu".

A lot of us keep repeating this over and over again. Please stop it because it is simply completely wrong!!!

The Kihon Happo is not from Gyokko Ryu! But the Kihon Happo looks somehow like the Gyokko Ryu Kihon. This however only tells us that Gyokko Ryu probably is an important Ryu-ha.

戸隠神社 (とがくしじんじゃ)
火防守護

It's togakushi jinja (the standard to and not toh/tô/tou!).

The second part indicates in my humble understanding that it protects from fire. I'm sure others might help with the correct rômaji, right?

Perhaps there's even another meaning?

Yokutô and Shatô (both are from Kotô Ryû Koppôjutsu Shoden Gata) use a Boshiken to Yûgasumi but the details of the strike and the kata are somewhat different.

To the best of my knowledge that’s how Hatsumi-sensei wanted it to be. However what I don’t know is what his intenion was where to draw the line between child and „adult“ (male, female).

Original Bujinkan belt system:
Mukyū --> white
9th Kyū to 1st Kyū --> green (male), red (female), yellow (children)
Shodan an above --> black

As far as I remember this system is used in the 50 Jiraiya episodes, right?

As to when this started and why you had to ask Hatsumi-sensei himself. But I assume this is a very old idea. During the filming of Jiraiya this seems already have been established as mentioned above.

The first picture in the article about „Japanese Children in Ninjutsu“ clearly shows yellow belts. I was not able to find out when this article was published. Certainly not in 2002! Does anyone know when this article first appeared?
[Edited: Seems to have been in 1985 or 1986!]

@ radarblip: No, my knowledge about the subject doesn’t come from such sources!

This is not correct!

Mukyū --> white belt (male, female, children)
9th Kyū to 1st Kyū --> green belt (male); red belt (female); yellow belt (children)
Shodan and above --> black belt (male, female, children)

[Women wear a red belt only from 9th Kyū to 1st Kyū!]

Today most Dōjō-chō decided that everyone after the white belt wears the green belt before they become Shodan and wear a black belt. This is valid for women and children alike. (We are all the same, right?!) Some Dōjō-chō decided to have a different colour for the different Kyū grades. Others use another colour (e.g. brown) for the higher Kyū grades. a.s.o.
