My training was in the mid-90's, so it's been a while. Made brown belt then got in a car accident that put me on the side-lines, and then an international relocation ended training.

I've started back into martial arts for fitness and self-defense but there are no taijutsu schools nearby. Of the internet resources, what are some good ones to refresh my memory and training while I look for an instructor?

Learning from a video is very difficult. My advice is to contact an instructor that you feel confident in and see if they could spend a weekend helping you with basics.If they are willing, fly/drive to their location for the weekend and receive clear instruction.

Go home, practice then return for more instruction at a later time and date. Maybe this can be determined by the teacher.

If you don't know of any instructors, post your location and I'm sure there are enough people on this board who can recomend one or two.

I live in Charlotte, NC. Haven't found any instructors in the local area, but then again, I've just started looking.

The advantage of books and videos is that I can go over and over them. Some times it takes me a bit to "get it". Even with an instructor I visit every couple of weeks I still forget stuff and get confused.

I just consider it a "flexible mind" state. :)

You can order books and videos here (but I don't know who runs this site):

http://www.budovideos.com/

(select the 'ninjutsu' category)

Not to mention there have been several books released over the last few years, which are very nice resources, that can augment your training.

Thanks cvbujinkan! Just got off the phone with one of the senior students and he seemed like a totally sensible and cool guy. I had google'd stuff some time back but I guess I didn't use the right keywords.
