Shawn, an admin asking him to put his name in his profile is one thing. It is, after all, a rule he agreed to when he joined. This, however ...

Quote:

...you must be a little more forthcoming. What is your full name, where do you live, do you train with anyone? I know I'd need to know a whole lot more before I'd help you out.


.... was completely unnecessary and elitist.

Marty, you discouraged him by telling him he needs an introduction and someone to vouch for him as "worthy" in order to train at hombu, which is not the case. Plenty of people show up without introductions and nobody is ever the wiser. It may be good to have an introduction but it's not "required". Part of helping him might have been giving him some advice on what to expect and how to conduct himself when he's there so as not to offend anyone.

In any case, I don't want to argue. I just think his two simple and seemingly sincere questions required two simple answers, not two pages and being told to stay home.

The guy failed to provide his name and he was deleted. Since he could read the terms of service here how would he begin to understand how to do things in Japan.


You have to be a member of the Bujinkan to train at the hombu unless you live here and plan on joining. Visiting is not an option really, the hombu is not a vacation spot.

He should stay home if he was coming to Japan just to show up at the hombu once and get his picture taken.

It prevents future frauds as well.

No it does not. The last 19 times i've gone they've never asked for proof of membership.

Not asking for membership doesn't mean that you are not supposed to and expected to have it.

You have to be a member to train in the hombu dojo.

I understand the reasoning and the rationale behind it. I am of the opinion that that alone does not prevent frauds.

It "helps prevent" one timers visiting the dojo to have their picture taken with Hatsumi sensei then running off doing their own things. But that hasn't stopped a few people in the Bujinkan from doing it as well.

Nothing we can do I suppose.

So now training in Japan is for people with a good comprehension of the English language?

Just how are things 'done' in Japan anyway?

Hehehe..remember when you were 17. I was only chasing girls, that is good that he can save his energy to other nice things. Do not slap him!
Still Japan has very stricted rules,maybe he should wait for a little more.
