I have wanted to do this for a while, but have been hesitant for various reasons. But peep_delta's thread has suggested that the following can be discussed openly, without rancor or childish name calling. What exactly are the differences amongst the three main xkans. In particular, what path did Manaka sensei follow which diverged from that of the bujikan. FYI, I practice bujinkan. I have no knowledge of the other two save what I have read on this forum. I've done some searching, but have not found a direct, let's compare, contrast and discuss thread. If there is one and I am being redundant, let me know. I will gladly read it and save you all the trouble.
