I consider this link (to the Onion, a satirical newspaper) work-friendly. However, the title of the article is "Disgruntled Ninja Silently Kills 12 Co-Workers" and I think I saw an ad for some Cuervo--so it depends on what kinda job you have, I guess.

The best sake is made to be cold, but you can get some very nice ones that you can warm.

Also to answer the original question. I train in the Bujinkan and have for years. I love it and how Crossfit has helped my training.

I don't know Mr. Pearce, but I have trained w/most of US Shihans. All are smooth in their own way. Ed Martin and Dick Severance will be out to W.coast this year doing seminars. Both are older Gentlemen and don't move more than needed. The younger Shihans are simply unbelievable. I won't even comment on the Japanese Masters. Hatsumi still spanks all of them like children. JMHO

Ahh, a buyu member! Yep, so I saw you're having some of the big guns out. There is a difference between old man taijutsu and the young taijutsu and the straight to the point taijutsu and the artistic taijutsu. Taijutsu!

Hatsumi is an enigma himself. For some awesome taijutsu, the old B&W videos of the shihan are awesome.

Interesting comment on Soke. Doug Wilson is doing most of his translating these days. I asked him about it. He said that many words in Japanese don't translate to eng. Also Hatsumi talks in a poetic flow, kind of like a Japanese rap. He usually starts talking before Doug has finished. He earns his keep. Everyone has their favorite instructor. Most feel that Noguchi has best Taijutsu and Nagato, he is Hatsumi's bodyguard after all.
I've been slapped around by most US Shihans. They're up there and I'm here, I have the rest of my life to get over it!

No, I have actually known people who either have stayed for long periods in Japan or partnered with Japanese SO. Their English suffers from it, quite, in that they start using Japanese grammar and tend to have a harder time explaining finite ideas in English terms.
Explaining things in Japanese and English are night and day.

Hatsumi is very much an artist, amongst other things.

On Sunday Soke does caligraphy for half the class. I was fortunate enough to get him to sign my purple Taijutsu book. They are rare enough as is. There were 200 people in the dojo. Just the stack of shoes and backpacks was unbelievable.
