Hello there,

there is lots of information on training and understanding the art buried deep in this forum. If you have some free time, it might be a good idea to start reading many older threads all the way through. Have fun!

Avraham, you seem very eager to learn.
Just keep in mind that to get good information and help from people 1.) let them know about you and where you're coming from (don't want to share info with the wrong type of person, etc)
2.) Ask specific questions and you will get specific answers! (ask your instructor first and google it 2nd... then ask on kutaki)

I would suggest that you read some of Soke's books beginning with 'history and tradition'.

Focus on your basics and build a strong foundation the rest will come later (I for one was very guilty of thinking that the basics were just basic THEY AREN'T they are the foundation on which to build)

As for your freebie ... The Kihon Happo are a set of eight basic techniques (Happo roughly = 8 for this purpose) anyhow, included are 5 locks and 3 kata. This has already been discussed on Kutaki ... try the search feature that shawn has installed.

good luck

Find a good teacher.
Stick with them for a while.
Who are you learning from now?
What do you like about them?
(These are not rhetorical questions)

I am sorry Eric san, but I cannot answer your quastion, since it concernd not only me but my teacher as well I was obliged to ask for premition before answering, it is my teacher's whish not to be discussed about on the web, and so I must respect my teacher's will.
It is not out of disrespect to you that I am not answering your quastion but out of respect to my teacher, I hope that you or any other memmber of kutaki understand and do not see it as an insolt, once again, I deeply apologize, avraham.

Avraham,
I am aslo a beginner compared to many of the buyu that post on this forum and I just have a comment or two in regards to your posts. You came to a place that can be quite a wealth of knowledge if you let it and you have posted your questions to quite a few people to see and answer which in and of itself is fine. If someone choses not to answer that is the risk that you take. My point is that you are asking for something and yet when you are being asked for something you politely refuse to share. I understand if feel you are paying homage or respect to your instructor but on the other side of that same coin how do you expect for people to volunteer anything to you when you offer nothing in return? Just a thought.

last time I was here this was a place to sheer not to trade. He wishes not to say anything bout his teacher , let it be .
But I side step from the main question: I agree with what the rest seed here try and find a book , perhaps your teacher can direct you to 1 or 2 or 5
Ask them , ninjutsu can get confusing at any time so just keep training and asking away .
