Since I was specifically asked to post this. . . There's a judan who's trained with me since he moved out here as a new godan, who now also has his own dojo about an hour away in Martinez. He has this student I'll call Juan, since that's his name. Juan has this sick habit of collecting 30-second video clips of himself attacking Bujinkan senior instructors and suffering the consequences. Last year he "collected" several Japanese shihan and a couple of Aussies; and back in December he finally got his own instructor and me. With Juan's permission I've had my WebMistress upload "my" video at my website so I could share it, and some of you might enjoy a look as it does capture the "fun" feeling of training in my dojo. (I love it when another student, holding the camera, tells him he still has 20 seconds to go.) This is totally unscripted, but there ARE constraints: Juan gets to do whatever he wants to try to take me out, while I'm making a point of not injuring him -- so I'm not striking, kicking, using joint-breaking locks or throws, or using weapons, which allows things to be drawn out much longer. (His specific request was "Just don't break anything".) Basically I'm just "playing with the space". www.bujinkansf.org/seago.mpg I think the really funny part is at the end, when he's still trying to squirm loose (until I put my fingertips suggestively on his eyelids) while muttering, "kill. . .kill. . ."
