thanks for letting everyone know. Glad that Hombu and the Buyu near there are OK.

David, this is interesting, as our dojo has somewhat fallen into a similar pattern of instruction the past few years. We offer taijutsu classes every day, but each daily class has a different focus based on the instructor of that class. My classes may focus on Shinden Fudo Ryu and Gyokko Ryu kata, while other classes/instructors may focus solely on kenjutsu, ne waza, kihon happo, or yakusoku randori kieko. Each instructor is responsible for their class, so what I am working on now will certainly change in a few months. Do you teach all of your classes or do you have other instructors focus on kata-based or alive-based training?

I teach all the taijutsu classes. I have a Muay Thai instructor for the Muay Thai and a yoga instructor for the yoga. Eventually so I am not working so much I will have other instructors teach some classes but I like to teach most of them.

Before 2001 I ONLY trained in the usual methods and manner as the classes at Hombu and Nagato Sensei’s class. But we always sparred. What I soon discovered that the students and I never used waza from the kata and henka in sparring. In 2001 I went to a http://www.straightblastgym.com"" rel="external" title="">Straight Blast Gym seminar and discovered the piece that was missing ‘alive drills’. Alive drills are drills that contain timing, energy, & motion. You must move, have a sense of timing, and progressive resistance. Just to clarify resistance does not mean that they are muscling out of locks or throws. Progressive resistance means: that they are actively trying not to get caught with your waza, by using footwork, body movement and positing and counter measures. Once we interred them more and more waza came out in both isolated, full and scenario sparring. As I was implementing this new curriculum I continued going to seminars and then hired a BJJ instructor ( I am now a 2nd stripe blue) and a Muay Thai instructor ( a few years later). Learning their training methodology I leaned how to train Bujinkan waza for actual application. Also any waza that I felt jelled with taijutsu principals I incorporated. Originally I taught classes going from kata to drills to randori all in one class. The problem came with the fact that traditional (For lack of a better term) Bujinkan class waza priority and alive waza priority is different. Waza in the order of the Ten Chi Jin are to train movement and certain concepts that are needed to develop certain ways of moving, how to move and generate power and understand maai. For aliveness you need to first train high percentage waza, (techniques that have a higher percentage rate of success) For instance Omote gyaku is very important for learning about your own body movement, how to control your opponent footwork etc, but it is a low percentage waza once a conflict has become physical. While Osoto Gake is a High percentage move which is why in judo for instance it is one of the first waza taught. So now I have my Kihon, Ryûha Gata, and Shinken gata classes and my taijutsu alive classes. The other benefit of separating classes is if a student wants they can train ONLY kata-based classes or ONLY alive classes. Currently no one is doing that but it is possible.

Sean this is a good thread. I think that there are many people out there like the sender of the email. So I think that this is a good way to bring up thses type of concerns and questions to a broader audience.

Every time someone like you, Ralph or Stephen Hayes uses a term such as “traditional Ninjutsu” or “traditional Bujinkan Taijutsu”, I feel disheartened.
Antizen,
I can see where you are coming from and I agree that I have read articles from SKH and some posts (Though not all) from Ralph, that could be considered disrespectful. But this post by Sean I don't get that vibe. I myself teach classes that are more of a MMA training methodology and those that are more 'traditional'. And that is who I describe them. How would you have someone call it if not traditional. I know people in other arts that use similar terminology to differentiate them. I know a Taichi guy who regularrly competes in MMA I bet his approach looks nothing like traditional Tai Chi. Would it not be better for those training in a non-traditional manner to know this so when they go to a dojo or Japan, they know that the training methodology will be different. I would think to hide the fact or pass off the different training methodology as standard Bujinkan training would be wrong.

I have a student who is going off to Iraq in January and was wondering if anyone living in Tokyo, could send me a omamori. I will gladly pay for it. Is there a general protection one? The only one I have is for protection during driving. If anyone is interested in helping out please PM or email me.
Thank you
