Medical question.

Hi.

I'm looking to start training in Bujinkan and suffer from tremors in my hands.

It is a neurolgical condition, I can't remember the name of it, but it doesn't normally stop me from doing anything anyone else can do. The best way I can think of describing it is like shivering slightly, and it isn't actually noticable unless someone actually watches my hands or something brings attention to it, like carrying a full cup of hot coffee.

Can anyone see this being a problem, or should I be okay to train?

Ashley,

Your profile doesn't say where you are. Perhaps you should go see budo taijutsu in your area and make your own decision based on your knowledge of yourself and an observation of what we do. Talking to a local shidoshi will help you, too, I imagine.

There are many people doing budo taijutsu, all shapes and sizes and abilities.

Good luck!

Don't worry about your condition, we are all humans and have lots of problems we even have people with missing legs,hands etc. doing Taijutsu and most of them are really good. So yours is nothing actually, still Liz is right that you should ask your sidoshi about it, at least you should let him know about it. I also must say that I am not a Doctor and this is only my idea.

Sounds like essential tremor... If you have doubts, maybe you should discuss it with your (potential) teacher and/or physician, but the answer to your question is probably:

Within the Hichi buku goshin-jutsu of our system, there is a path of protecting oneself.

If you have no knowledge in the health-defense of oneself from Hatsumi Sensei, Then you should never post again as a representative. If you want knowledge in this field, then ask a Sensei...

Yes, there are ailing members of the Bujinkan that have health threatening ailments and yet still train... Yet, they also have access to Hatsumi Sensei that no one here can rival. They do not need you to speak for them.

A lack of knowledge breeds bad habits... If you do not help your student's, then you are harming them.

back to that 'shut up and train', thing...

And yes, Hatsumi-Sensei means YOU...
