"Also, what are your guys opinions on the differences between a katana and these "ninja" swords I see so often. The way I have learned has always been with a katana, so what are the advantages/disadvantages of them?"

what specific type of "ninja sword" are you referring to? There are many.

I think at this point, it is really necessary that you speak with your teacher on this matter, and I think most posting in this thread will agree with me on that.

He or she should be the one to set you on the correct path.

I've heard some people say that the straight ninja sword (similar to a chokuto) isn't historical, and I've heard others say that it is historical and was used because they were much easier and cheaper to make than a katana.

That was pretty interesting to read, thank you. And as for my teacher, he said the straight swords were never really used that much. I was just looking for other people's views on it. Why am I being chastised for these questions? Why is it so bad to want to learn more?

I've only posted a few times here and I've found the replies to be very helpful. I think you are getting the responses you are getting, because you are asking questions on a public forum and expecting people to take time out of their day to answer you, when you could probably find out yourself with a little research or from your teacher. Maybe if you did some research and expressed what you discovered, but were still a bit confused you might get better replies. Just my opinion.

As for the kayakujutsu thread. These days, if I knew anything, I would be leary about giving pointers as well. I wouldn't want the authorities knocking on my door because I gave somebody pointers on explosives in a forum.

Dude, just because the advice you recieve isn't of a nature or delivered in a manner you wanted to hear, doesn't mean you are being chastised. If you take it in such a personal manner, it will make it harder for you to benefit from it. Just my opinion. Ok, with that, I will now mind my own buisiness....blame Peets Coffee, lol. Adios.

Sorry, I wasn't talking about this one really, I was thinking of the other thread in the back of my mind. Not about this, but in the other, they were saying I am the reason Bujinkan is looked upon in a bad light.
