I was extremely sad to hear such a kind and giving human being as Dick Severance was passed away.
I always enjoyed my chats with him and felt very relaxed and at peace around him.

Hmmmm well thanks James..
I bet people think we are in love.. or better yet.. we know each other.. LOL.. now for the past 20 years or so.. Hmmm
This brings up a point..
It is always funny to hear on forums.. ""people close to Hatsumi sensei"" know me (Ralph) so well.. but.. lets be honest.. I have never met them or even know who they are.. but their opinions are manifested from greed, hate, fear and ego..
If I have met them.. then.. hmmmm what do they know about me.. LOL..

What a beautiful peaceful giving heart the world has..

I will keep to my path Markk........... Please be careful not to have preconceptions, and to always remember the idea of truth-and-falsehood.
-- Hatsumi Sensei

Yes, I agree.. Let's sum up this thread..
Shuriken need to be made correctly.. thrown correctly.. and thrown against a correct target..
My opinion.. find a good guide to help you..
Someone with experience.. not opinions.. not tested.

Well Markk..
Hmmmmm
Maybe so..
But last night for example I did discharge 3 - 12 ga rounds into a truck trying to run me over...

Life is full of experiences..

I just walk towards and join with the experiences that set me apart from none experienced people..

Are you like most people who do dojo combative skills against willing people and confess combative skills experience?

Jonathan Gillespie,
No dojo storming.. just boys being boys..

Markk, why not do some research, get results and share them..
I'm sure everyone would love to hear you some effeort to find pragmatic combatiuve skills..
Right?
If not first hand experience Markk.. well then you speak from a ‘theorist’ background.

Samuel Zavaletta,
No, the padded suit was made just for one person when we shot the footage for the DVD.
The suit was a major under taking. It takes time to put it on and it’s not very ‘user friendly’.
Yes, the movement is slowed down a lot.. but there is a great deal of stress related research manifested from the experiences with this type of training methodology.
I have been in three conflicts where senban shuriken were used and thrown at me.
I was hit twice during those three ordeals.
Not much came from it other than small cuts on the arms.
Did I learn from those experiences.. sure.
But it doesn’t help if you don’t witness these methods first hand.. as in filming it for others.
Yeah, the major challenge most forum masters and dojo masters can be seen from their lack of pragmatic results under a stressful demo..
Yeah anyone can beat a willing foe.. as well as hit a target that is not hitting back at you..
Hmmmmmmm trolls know this and don’t like being exposed because it weathers their belt color. .

During the shoots we used wood, plastic and steel type boshuriken.. against the padded target on the full body amour.
They all were very effective.

Sorry no animals or humans were injured during these test.

I would venture to say, aside from focus and skill this would also require incredible stupidity. Both on the part of the tori as well as the uke.

What possibly could the purpose for this be?

Markk Bush,
Pragmatic results Markk...
I understand many people training in martial arts don't feel the same as I do about pragmatic real time research.
The way we seek.. the path is different in us all..
You view things like research into pragmatic combative warrior skills incredible stupidity.
Ok..
Cool..
I understand your feelings and at times pondered my results and what I have taken from the research.
From my past almost 40 years of training I have found the research has given me peace and happiness.
This peace and happiness has been passed on to others in my "own" way..
If you view what has come from this.. honestly and openly.. you'll find in your heart I have experienced what many others seek.

Good luck,
Ralph Severe, kamiyama

Yes, I have used Mark Harper sensei target during seminars.. it is awesome.

I throw MANY different types of blades..
Needles, wire, razor blades, chop sticks, etc.. etc..
I use foam..
I agree..
Using hard woods only cause damage to the blades.

In a DVD on boshurikenjutsu I demo using pads which are taped to a human being attacking me.. the pads on a moving target are great..
He also wears a helmet with padded face..
Different..
But this takes time to put on and it's hard to wear too..

Using a pad on the hands and arms can be interesting as well without the body being padded..
This takes focus and skill not to miss as well as hit the other.. target which is a student.. LOL.. oh well.

I can tell you.. a moving target is far different from a still target.. duh,,

I wanna' know, as I'm a greenhorn in this, what sort of benefits can you reap from punching a heavy bag?

Ren Su, the heavy bag adds a great deal of research into 'power of motion' to your athletic endeavor as well as correct biometrics manifesting into the over all body structural positioning.
Most of the students in search of martial skills put aside the 'athletic training' of being an athlete.
The important issues with heavy bag training is to relate 'real time' conflict into the drills you are using while training on the heavy bags.
The drills can be just pounding away mindlessly or with a great deal of focus on the truth.

And are there any disadvantages in it?

Ren Su, yes, the major challenge you will have is it slows you down as well as creates a false feel for distance in 'real time' biometrics during a conflict.
Of course you can break your hand, foot or etc.. as well as knock you body out of wack too hitting the heavy nags.

In fact, should you punch it bare knuckled, or with wraps?

Ren Su, I would recommend using hand wraps.
The aid from these add to the enjoyment but are not necessary.
Hand raps also manifest a false feel too.
Adding a great deal of structure that is not there without them.
After years of hitting the bags I went to using work type gloves to protect the beauty of my manly hands too.


Which one is better for self-defence and overall combat?

Ren Su, the answer is in your training methodology not in opinions.

Like I've heard that kicking a heavy bag can harden or toughen your shins.

Ren Su, this is true.
Not only physically but also mentally and spiritually.
Kicking auto tires is pretty easy when you build up to it.
The body was made for combative adventures before we were brainwashed into submissive sheepeople living conditions.
You'll be surprised what the body can do over years of correct methodology.

Ren Su, always research the source of opinion and information you get from others.
Their back ground, training methodology and if they still do or just teach from what they did before in their life.
Opinions are many.. but few have the back ground with experience to back up what they say.
Example would be to ask to view them hitting a bag or kicking a bag or even cutting or striking targets of any kind to allow you to see their opinions in action.
There the truth awaits you...........

"black hole" - "mystical"

Hmmmm
There are no "black hole" - "mystical" stuff in pounding a human being into submission.. with or without a knife..

Many people outside fighting and into the "cool" stuff have a business to run, rank to wear, DVDs and seminars to teach.. maybe this is where the "black hole" - "mystical" skills come from.

Teaching "willing" paying seminar or Dojo students seem to be put at the same level as truth.. where skills are pondered.

Mr. Bill Atkins is better than a 5th dan under most... worldwide...


Jamie sensei,
Better at what?

If rank means nothing then why state 5th dan better or etc than another human being?

And if so or never the less then what are they better at doing than say the next guy?

Who makes this judgment call who is better than say ????
