but am i 2 believe matt that by the "rolling eyes" u think i'm talkin nonsense?




Yes, absolutely. Even if you are telling the truth, that is one of the most idiotic things I have ever heard. How is writing your name in blood in any way related to martial arts training?

It does sound like a brilliant way to to injure yourself and possibly get a nice infection.




Matt: Not to say that I agree with this fella, but the "blood oath" or keppan (In which a thumbprint in blood is made next to their name by the person making it) is to be found at least in the Tenshin Shoden Kattori Shinto Ryu school of kenjutsu.
Again, I don't agree with where this guy is coming from , just providing a bit of information.




I don't think he was describing a blood oath though. he was more describing a "hey dude look I can bash my hands till they bleed!"

plus a blood oath is a one time thing. An interesting question though, if your instructor asked you to cut your hand for a one time "blood oath" saying you'll faithfully train to the best of your abilities, would you do it?
