    Morning all, well its morning in England,

    I have recently started training bujinkan, its all very strange to me at the moment, after training kempo jujitsu for the last six years, although some of the locks and throws are the same its difficult getting used to the correct stance, as its very different from what im used to.

    I am thoroughly enjoying learning to use the bo which is something i have wanted to do for many years.

    Just wondered if anyone had any pointers for me as a new recruit, if not to martial arts to bujinkan.

    Before you 'burn the keyboard up' with questions etc, check out the stickies in the 'Ninjutsu' section of the forum. It will take some time to read but there is alot of good info there.

    It will answer many question it will, my young padiwan.

    Mind what you have learned. Save you it can.

    As a start, read through all the posts on this forum, past and present.
    That's what I did, and I learn't a hell of alot. It will get you familiar with certain terms in Japanese. You can always pick up some books too.

    Start with all of Soke's books...You can't go wrong.
    Above all else, relax and have fun.

    Gambatte !

    Smashed out of his head, Rubber Tanto leans closer to neil999 with a bottle of rice wine and whispers... "no it's a sake test!"

    Is that proper doors, or those slidey Japanese wooden-panelled paper ones that you can hear through? :D

    Best tips I can give you are relax have an open mind and an empty cup and fill it with the lessons of the day as shown by a good Instructor. Enjoy yourself have fun be playful, learn to be a good Uke. Forget all your what if questions as they will all answer themselves in time if your eyes learn to see. Use no strength or power as it will become a burden you don't need. Just as all the stances will just become spaces you move through in time. Gambatte
