Muteki/Bujikan Training

Bujikan Training, my view

In Muteki the training varies day to day. It is a constant moving art. We who train in the Ninja or Bujikan must be able to adapt to our surrounding, whether it is pitch black or raining or whatever the case may be. Center ourselves and feel around and move past blockades. Adapt to our surrounding constantly being aware of where we are at all times.

One of the things we are learning is the importanc4e of a symmetrical line. How we move along it, whether we step off of it or stay on it. Sinking low with your hips into your stances gives you better balance. Your blocks come from your center stepping off the symmetrical line 45 degrees behind you, sinking into your kamae gives you more balance and makes your stance stronger.
You picture yoiur opponate opposite of you. Break his body down, look at the skeletal structure. How long is his reach for kicking and punching?

Kids are a never ending supply of energy. Ninja training will eventually
harness that energy. They will learn to respect. They will encourage others and have a great self esteem about themselves and the world around them. Sensei Craig really encourages and reaches out to those kids. He pushes them to strive fora higher level. He has developed a trusting bond with them as ahe has done with his adult students. His students will try that much harder and realize they could do something that they thought they couldn't before. It takes a while of coming to class and developing that bond but it is well worth it. Thanks to the never ending devotion of our own Sensei Craig, we have a place where we could call our own.
See you next class...

That's true, proper training can harness energy and put it to good use. It does not just build physical skills but it builds character as well.

Yes, being scared and carrying through with it anyway.. it does build character.. I'm glad that the sensei I have is 28 .. he is definately one that not does give me any excuses because of my age. He expects me to do it just like everyone else and he calls me up just like the guys and plays and does teckniques and doesn"t treat me any different. that alone is re building my character, because I was making exuses because I had a stroke, but now I don't do that anymore and I'm better for it. love training..

That's really wise of your sensei. Life does not distinguish between people - that's the job of humans LOL. More importantly don't think of your self differently. We are all the same learners in this world. What separates one from the other is character. Even then, we are all God's creation. Continue to enjoy learning through your training.
