Hmmmm...Not so sure about this Shoto Tanemura cat. His bio, aside from being generally ridiculously padded, mentions that he was an exponent of "Shindo muso ryu kenpo." As far as I know, no such animal exists. Shindo/Shinto muso ryu is the school of jojutsu founded by Muso Gonnosuke Katsuyoshi. A search for this 'style' of kenpo only turns up Tanemura's page, and SMR related sites.

Guys, I must come clean with something about myself. I am a ninja. Since a child I learned to climb trees, hide in bushes, attatch hooked objects to ropes in hopes that I could scale my garage, I even had a ninja mask! I made shurikens out of wood and sharpened them. I skipped school on many occasions to go down to the lake and focus my ki power and throw roundhouse kicks at mosquitos that flew by. I honed my skills until ......... HAHAHA I can't go on. There are no ninjas guys. Please stop before I fall out of my chair.

"Taijitsu" was a fighting art that many ninjas knew. "Hojo Jitsu" was the art of rope use/binding. (Samurai actually knew Hojo Jitsu, for there were no handcuffs back then). I could bore you with tons of ancient history but I will stop here and just ask you guys to refrain from embarassing yourselves anymore.

Ninja don't exist in the context you have put them, with the exception of in the movies. The art of ninjutsu however is still widely practiced.

I'm happy to see new guys come in and feel they can be so condescending to others in the forum. Feel free to continue though. Hopefully you will establish some credibility and be a valuable addition to the forum.

I don't fall into that category, do I laf? I don't try, it's just that outright stupidity bugs me. Especially when one is sitting by a computer to think through what they happen to be posting. It's not like you can type a slip of the tongue.

Wow, I just went into another rant, I guess I do fall into that condescending newcomer category.

From what i can tell the only "issues" i've seen in your post are simple misunderstandings. So no you’re not in that category. We all have our moments. The question is do we intend to be a horse’s hindquarter all the time or are we going to make some sort of contribution? For some it may be both.

I just wished people would start being more open minded about things like this. If anyone questions anything anyone else believes to be true and practices than instead of using your knowledge of movies and tv shows how about trying to do your own research. Open mindedness will actually bring you further than you may ever know. If anyone has any questions on ninjustu just ask, I will try to help out the best I can.

It is pretty sad how people won't use google to learn a bit about the art. Google is an incredibly useful tool guys, try it out.

I wanted to step in here and mention that the poster Immortaldragon is on the right track (Not entirely, but he's got the idea).
Ninjutsu tends to use a lot of techniques that involve using the centerline. For example someone may throw a punch at your head, you'll move the top of your body out of the way just barely, then do the appropriate footwork such as stepping in to the inside of their leading knee with your own knee, or stepping behind their leading leg.

Both of these footwork positions leave you in perfect position to perform a throwing technique, because they put the opponent off balance in relation to your stance. I won't go into the details of what you need to do with your arms to get the throw going. The footwork is what's important.

As for ukemi being similar to Aikido, yes this is true to an extent. However, in ninpo taijutsu, our ukemi tend to be MUCH quieter and softer than in aikido or judo. I don't think I would want to try a sideways roll on concrete from aikido. I'd probably break myself.

I live in Rockville MD, and i was wondering where to find a legitimate Ninjitsu school near me which teaches both the armed/unarmed fighting techniques and the stealth, climbing, etc. techniques. If anyone has any info about a school locator site/an actual school, please post.

Use the search function, and make sure to google for Bujinkan, Genbukan or Jinenkan, in Maryland. I believe Jinenkan made its US headquarters in Maryland. There should be several Genbukan dojos there as well.

Please spell it ninjUtsu, or ninpo, and forget about stealth and all that other nonsense. If you start talking about climbing trees and such, the instructors will laugh at you. You will learn it on your own and as a part of your regular training. If you really want to be stealthy just practice it by yourself at home. You don't need to be taught ninja techniques to be very stealthy. Besides, ninja techniques won't make a noisy person quiet anyways.


Also, the post at the beginning of this page which sort of attacked Shoto Tanemura's credentials is bogus. Go watch a video of him. I've seen the scrolls, he is everything he claims to be.
