Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu

PostAuthor: QuietResolve » January 31st, 2007, 11:28 am

Hello Rangers.

I'm simply wondering if any of you have experience with bujinkan budo taijutsu, what used to be known as ninjutsu. I've been researching it quite a bit, I've even found that there is someone in my town that teaches it. I'm very interested in it because from what I understand, there is no focus on sport or competition at all within this martial art. It instead focuses highly on very real combat as it applies to life and death situations. If any Rangers here have experience with bujinkan and would be willing to share, I would be very much obliged. Would this kind of martial art be desirable in regards to what I will face in my future in the military?

Thank you Rangers for your time.

-Ninja's are common and are frequently found fighting in public.

Martial Arts isn't gonna get you through RIP. Read more, post less... You need to learn what a military crest is, and how not to skyline yourself. That'll get you further than throwing stars and caltrops.

BTW... whats with the sig line? Go to the bookstore and pick up "Gates of Fire".

***fixed the BUDS part, some jacknuts got me all confused, then you mentioned Ninjas and I naturally assumed you were talking SEALs. :lol: Tell you what, I'm going to the gym right now and I'll stare at the treadmill for three more minutes for that.

Veteran borebrush,

I in no way believe, nor did I mean to imply, that martial arts will get me through RIP. Rather, I am interested in the Rangers', or others, opinions of it. How do you feel it to compare to other martial arts? Given the choice between bujinkan and any other, which would you choose? I'm just trying to get a feel of whether I should bother with lessons or not.

A military crest is the shoulder of a hill or ridge rather than its actual crest. It is the highest contour of elevation from which the base of its slope can be seen without defilade.

In regards to how not to skyline myself, that information is not readily available online, but I will continue to research both this and more on military crests, and will post a more acceptable definition to each.

The first sig line in an abridged version of the Litany Against Fear, taken from the novel Dune, written by Frank Herbet. The second half, the best advice I can remember being given in a long time, is a quote from my introduction thread by Ranger GSXRanger. And thank you Veteran borebrush for telling me about "Gates of Fire", it sounds incredible. I will go pick it up when my next paycheck comes in.

Facts:



1. Ninjas are mammals.

2. Ninjas fight ALL the time.

3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.

To better answer your question... I don't fuckin know, I'm not a Ranger. :lol:

IMO, train smarter not harder. Whatever you learn goes directly into your kit for use possibly later, but I'm not saying Ninjistu is gonna help. The military crest comment was a rhetorical question, but since we are there now I'll give you some gouge on the Skyline. You patrol along the military crest to avoid silhouetting yourself against the sky. Having that in your OODA loop (feel free to look that up too) is useful in all kinds of places. Especially when you are the junior troop in the A/O. This is the situation that I was referring to. Skylining, as in drawing unwanted or undesired attention on yourself and your TL and SqdLdr.

I never had any boots claiming ninja status, but when training new squires at the Castle it was amazing how many went to Samurai training of some sort. :roll: They loved to throw that out there like, we would make exceptions for them. The response they got... "Thats great, now STFU..." It only brought more smoke on them, because they had to learn it our way. That and they were out of shape and full of shit.

So, in other words, there's no way to prove that their techniques work or that the instructor is worth a shit.

As Matt Larsen was fond of pointing out, systems that don't include provisions for competition are usually flawed as all hell, because there is NO way to know whether or not the training you are recieving works until you try those moves with someone else trying to kick your ass while you do it.

If you're going to learn a fighting style because you want to be good at fighting, you need to pick one that's fucking proven. Learning "secret" styles doesn't get you fucking anywhere. There's a reason why in the first few UFCs they had sumo, savate, ninjutsu, kung fu, capoeira and a lot of other flashy or popular martial arts and they don't any more. Because the shit doesn't work.

You want to learn how to fight, learn how to hit people and learn how to grapple. It's that simple. Boxing, karate, muay thai, wrestling, judo, jujtsu are what work for that. You get a solid foundation in them and you're fine.

And never trust a fighting instructor that can't kick your ass. If the instructor doesn't compete regularly in martial arts competitions, it reflects poorly on what he thinks of his abilities.

I did Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu for quite a few years, I loved it. My favorite art thus far. PM me if you'd like any info.
Somewhere someone is training to kill you. He trains with minimal food and water, in austere conditions. The only thing clean on him is his weapon, and he made his gear. His ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when you stop chasing him. He is not concerned about how hard it is he knows either he wins, or dies. He doesn't go home, he is home.

You do realize that you're replying to a dude that hasn't visited the site in over a year, right?
