Hey noble mate, it looks like you and I have Ninjutsu in common. I've just checked out your site. Its pretty cool.noble said:I've studied Shorinji Kan Jujutsu and Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (ninjutsu) although I recently had to quit jujutsu due to time constraints, I'm hoping that budo taijutsu will be beneficial to becoming a royal marines commando.

To my knowledge theres only one 15th dan in this part of the country and he was one of my sensei's for a while. He was made a Master in his own right by the Japanese Grandmaster. I also studied Amatsu with him, which is a japanese healing therapy.Ste Preece, I used to do bujinkan in south london until 2 years ago, my instructor, shidoshi/shidōshi-ho Rob, I'm sure mentioned you once or twice (my memory is a bit faded but the description of a 15-dan northern, ex-marine is somthing that stayed in my mind)
That's always a good sign, you want your club to be focused on teaching you what you need to know, not just mindlessly going through the same syllabus for every student to get you through the belt factory or "McDojo".And my club is the same Steve, gradings aren't particularly emphasised. they are carried out, but not as if they're the be all and end all.
