So... if someone told you to follow some advice, but that was not written out for you to reference later, you wouldn't follow that advice????



Not necessarily. For myself, following advice has nothing to do with whether or not it's written down; however, RULES are written down because it mitigates the effects of the "grapevine" (he said that she said that they said....).


Hatsumi Sensei has written about a LOT of stuff in his publications (Sanmyaku, Tetsujin, Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu, TenChiJin, Advanced Stick Fighting, Ninpo Wisdom for Life, etc, etc.). Why would he neglect to mention this point (i.e. no cross training with other kans) if it is so important?

And many things are written down.




p.s. Don't assume that because the doctor tells you to take aspirin, that aspirin is appropriate for everyone.

"Why?"

Answer: Noname, this is something you have to figure out yourself. I agree that it is a grey zone and thats why I wrote "in my opinion". If you know the situation you should act accordingly, if not, no blame should be put on you if you "break" unwritten rules no one told you about.

I know people who refuse to even look on DVD´s or in books if they are produced by some of the ex-bujinkaneers.

If one really have problems in judging the situation, I would recommend writing to Soke and asking for advice.

"If you know the situation you should act accordingly"

I agree. I think it would be disrespectful to assume one knows the situation by listening to the "grapevine."

"If one really have problems in judging the situation"

For me, it's more about questioning 3rd parties' judgements.

"I would recommend writing to Soke and asking for advice"

Nice call. I'm in the process of doing so.

p.s. Hey Shawn, when are you coming back to Austin? I enjoyed your seminar.


Not 100% sure yet - That depends a lot on the seminar organizer.

I was just about to recommend that you write to Sensei about your Buj/Jin training dilemma, but I see that you're already on that. (You've already had one Japanese Shihan tell you his direct opinion on here, but sure, go to the source if that's not good enough for you.)

Please let me know how Sensei responds to your letter. If there is still any doubt after having been told by a Japanese Shihan and getting a response from Sensei, or if you for some reason don't get a response from Sensei, I'll ask Sensei about it before I'm in Austin next time. Depending on what he says, I guess I might see you at the training and I might not...

Season's greetings,

Shawn

Why don't you just ask your teacher what he or she thinks?

Well, his opinion seemed to be that "chasing two hares" wasn't a good thing. To me, it is clear that Takamatsu sensei chased more than 2 hares.

In fact, many people would consider "mastering" 9 ryu-ha as "chasing 9 hares."

Just to clarify, the outcome of this debate (i.e. Soke's words) won't really influence my training all that much. I don't cross-train between the kans.

Merry X-mas!

I have. Personally, he sees no problem with it.

I think scientists are starting to do that nowadays. Maybe I can mail order one......
