I don't train in budo taijutsu, but I've been to classes and seminars put together by the Bujinkan Yamaneko dojo. It is an extremely close, tight-knit, family-oriented group. Good people.

I like the art a lot. They don't spar (except for belt tests--watch out), but they learn how to move in their bodies very well, including how to fall/roll/etc. They move very well.

I actually found out about CF from folks affiliated with the dojo.

The focus can be different depending on what dojo you train at. I had an ex-boyfriend who trained in the Bujinkan for years - and at the dojo he attended, out here in SoCal, there was regular sparring (with and without weapons), live drilling, and they were incoporating BJJ into their training as well.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but Matt, I would pay good money to see you do the WOD in those Tabi boots.

I was going to add that this coming weekend is Daikomyosai, a celebration of Hatsumi Sensei's birthday, in Japan. A lot of different dojos celebrate it in some way or another. Here in Tucson, there is a free all-day seminar, followed by the best giant party I've *ever* been to. I can only make part of the seminar this year, but will definitely be at the afterparty. So if anybody's interested in taijutsu, you may want to call your local dojo and find out if they have anything going on around Nov 30-Dec 2nd.

Bring on the saki.

Awwww, the 80s. Ninja suits and home made nunchucks. The boots don’t work for crap on wood floors though. I slipped and fell on my arse at a Halloween party on time while trying to break dance in it. Good thing I was wearing the mask. My wife made me sell the Ninja suit at a rummage sale shortly after we were married.

Tabi boots are only sexy here in the states where it's NINJA to wear them. Too bad, they're fairly common wear back in Japan.

Bujinkan men are sexy as hell, and it has nothing to do with their footwear...}

Now for a somewhat serious post........

I went to a 3 day ninja camp (yes I took a lot of grief for that from my non-MA friends)a few years ago. It was put on by a group of people from Canada, I think the head guy's name was Park, but I can't be sure.

The guy talked too much so we didn't get much training, but their demonstrations were awesome. There was one guy taking a rank test and went up against a bunch of other students demonstrating almost 200 moves. I can tell you these guys had great techniques and were very serious about their training. If they had a school near me, I would be there.

Does anyone here happen to know these people?
