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...
