As we can say about his knowledge of japanese history so far:
We all don`t know nothing about things that happened in the past but luckily there`s a person calling him-/herself trunkssun (=almighty wisdom & knowledge).
I`m very thankful for trunkssun opening my eyes. Now I`m aware for example that in a person`s life the only important dates are the ones of birth and death and not the so many years in between.


About creating 5 Ryuha (if that`s true at all):
There are many differences in the many Ryuha, some containing just of a handful of techniques, some including a great variety of techniques, weapons etc. Therefore it`s possible that a single Ryu consists of more teachings than 5 other Ryu together.

I'm attending U of M Ann Arbor, and I'm planning on some sort of concentration in Greek and Roman history.

I've never heard of memorizing dates to attain knowledge of a period. Yes, they are important so you can know when something happened, but I've never heard of simply studying "the period itself". That would be like me studying Rome in the 1st century without studying how the people in that period like Gaius Marius, Gaius Julius Caesar, or Octavian/Augustus changed Rome and how that relates to our culture in this day and age.
Knowing that Octavian was given the title of "Augustus" in 27B.C. or that Caesar was assasinated in 44B.C. doesn't really do anything, now does it?


P.s. I'm new to the forum, fairly new at MA's too, hi everybody!

Howdy. The problem is that the person who has "studied the period" has done so on his own. He's not exactly part of a formal program of study. Not at all sure what level of education the person has.

The Shinsengumi ended around the 1860's. So it's not quite 200 years yet. More like over 100 years ago but not over 200 years ago.

Maby so, but we are not talking about wene they ended we're talking about The battle with the Shinsengumi and the four Hitokiri. which I belive was over two hundred years ago.

Well "Caleb's" profile says he's 14; he may be 15 by now. Just have to wonder where his study material has come from.

trunks, come off it already, all right? I don't know where you learned what you think you know, but your knowledge is certainly suspect, and I would think in many respects plain wrong.

Tanaka Shinbei was the first Hitokiri born during that period, in 1832. 2 years before Kawakami Gensai. Now, unless Hitokiri were fighting some 30 years before even being born, you're flat out wrong. You ought to stop reading whatever you're reading and get some real historical texts. I don't think your historical "facts" have much worth here.

Just to place a piece of Frederick Nieztche Wisdom in this hot little thread (Sorry if his name is spelled wrong),

"None argue more forcefully then the indignant."

Just paraphrasing so sorry if it is wrong but the main point was put accross.

And no, rurouni kenshin and related stuff don't count as historical sources.

LMFAO!!!!!

Wait...they AREN'T? But all my knowledge of fuedal japan is based on animes like rurouni kenshin and inuyasha!

Next your gonna say that half dog demon half humans didn't run around with impossibly large katanas that could slash an object 20 meters away with energy!
