Yeah...the topic pretty much sums up what I am looking for. I know there are several dojos in the state of North Carolina, but everyone is at least an hour or more away from Davidson College, and I do not have access to a car.

Being that this is college, I can't wake up my hung-over friends so they can drive me to a dojo on Saturday morning. Help! Please!

There are also small groups around the state, in Asheville, near Chapel Hill, Cherokee, Maiden, to name a few. Most of these do not advertise and so it is hard to find them.

While keeping an eye out for any nearby dojos, I recently discovered a Toshindo dojo only 18 minutes away from my school. I'm pretty sure that Stephen Hayes's Toshindo version of Budo Taijutsu is virtually the same as the Bujinkan's.

Any thoughts, recommendations?

Toshindo is NOT virtually the same as the Bujinkan. They are two seperate arts altogether IMO.

Yes, SKH based his art Toshindo from his past training within the Bujinkan. However what the Bujinkan has evolved into today is way beyond what Toshindo is and ever will be. Again, IMO.

All I can say is ( and I tell everyone this ) go try it out and if you like it then great. However I also suggest trying ( if you can ) a Bujinkan class as well. You may like one over the other.

You asked and you have received! :) Good luck on your endeavor!

Michael has said it very well! Dr. Hatsumi has also said that you should train with someone who trains with him. When was the last time SKH trained with Dr. Hatsumi? That might be rather good to know before making your choice. I will be near Raleigh, NC this next weekend and a lot of the instructors of groups in the area will be there. It would be a good time to meet those that are training in the Bujinkan. If you want contacts etc just pm me directly.
