I stand corrected on the geographical locations of the Shidoshis that I mentioned, as my information seems to be outdated. I certainly did not intend to spread any misinformation, I simply suck with maps. =) Good training to ya!

Garth agrees with the choices given already. He's now in S.F. also.

Wow, now that was a post! You must be very proud of yourself, and your interaction with your fellow budoka(s).

I won't waste time arguing with someone as tempermental as yourself as you obviously enjoy being beligerent, but I find it amazing that you compare someone asking for help finding a dojo to the list of information you posted above. It is really quite simple, if you chose not to help someone with this basic request then do not help them. How about the old motto "if you have nothing nice to say than say nothing at all?" Not only did you chose not to help this person, but you actually expended effort to type posts that did nothing more than belittle the person. It is interesting that this makes you feel better about yourself.

I will not even stoop to the debate of my background, which you choose to attack without knowing a thing about me (something a true budoka would never do), as I am a long term, dilligent student of budo, who succeeds in making life safer and better for those in my community on a regular basis. I do this through my training, through my work, and through my volunteer work.

Please, let us let this thread die. Kutaki.org is a quality forum, and the fewer non-helpful, childish, expletive filled posts it has the better. I think we could all benefit from remembering that we represent Soke when we discuss his arts, and your posts are so disrespectful that to continue this thread is only to disrespect the Bujinkan at a whole.

This will be my last post in this thread. Continue to embarass yourself if you chose.

Again, to the original poster, good luck in your training.


My post was so friggin' helpful it belies description! Everything else you said was just a repeat of what I said...are you uninitelligent, McDonalds, to not realise you just reiterated all of my points? You obviously have much to learn about life. Maybe you should read the Bible some, or pick up some of Happy-san's books. My conduct rules the world. It is my sincere hope that someday you realize the error of your ignorance, and can begin to live a life "in the middle of now", unfettered by ego.

Keep moving or die,

Thank you.

Now that the information on Dojos in San jose has been presented, I vote that this thread be locked so ignorant people don't waste our time posting anymore than they have.

Again, to the original poster, I apologize for the behaviour of others.

Cheers,

James

This sort of behaviour is inappropriate in any social context (behind a keyboard or otherwise). I comment because you're affecting others by your actions.

Or perhaps I should just publish all my material on the Web? I doubt anyone will mind. Hmm...about 400 ryu-ha kata (starring me) in compressed mpeg,


It's not for me to comment on publishing your own material on the internet (all 400 of them, starring yourself...), though I suppose your argument is appropriateness (?)

Quote:

all of Soke's (english) books in .pdf, all of Soke's vids except Hidden Weapons "ripped", a 4 Japanese tranlations (Ima Ninja, TrNT, Hiden Togakure and Sojutsu .pdf).


I've never heard of soke's books being published electronically - so assuming you've performed this transfer of material to another format yourself (like the 'ripped' videos), this a violation of copyright. I can understand people wanting their own backup copies of valuable material, but again I think there is an issue of appropriateness. The question of whether this is necessary (giving that you are breaking the law and violating other people's rights in doing so) must be asked.

Quote:

And all my notes, henka etc.. I'll just post 'em all on a website, free for all! Won't that be "nice and easy" for the diligent student of budo? Budo before the mass proliferation of the Net was silly! I remember, back then, you had get out from behind the keyboard and go meet people, you had track down dojo, and to do that you had to build relationships with your "buyu". What a waste of time. POOP, I think I'll just download a Godan, you can do that at Ninjutsu.com, right?
It's a shame that (deleted explitive) kowtow'ers like you exist, "Jim McDonald", (IMHO)


I don't think the nobility of suffering is all that important myself, the easier way and the smarter way of doing things are not totally exclusive imo.

I believe that the way you have so proudly listed all of the material you own, as well as the conversion of these materials to another format (that's assuming you own the original copies) are classic signs of a 'collector' syndrome.

Ed, I don't think he meant any of that literally. It seems to be a sarcastic expression of a belief that too much Bujinkan information is given out too easily these days; but it can be a bit hard to read between the lines because he seems unable to express himself without being profane and insulting, which he appears to confuse with kyojitsu.

It is highly innapropriate to be insulting or profane, even for sake of sarcastic argument, as Mr. Seago recognized, no matter the context. I offer this thread on Kutaki to validate this.....

Oh, wait...
