View Full Version : Schools in North Carolina

14th June 2006, 05:45
I am looking for a martial arts school, and I have a particular interest in Bujinkan Taijutsu. There is a school very nearby taught by a Mark Murdock. This is a link to his dojo's webpage: http://www.manabi-masho.com

It would be appreciated if anyone could provide information or observation on the school mentioned above or provide a suggestion for another martial arts school in North Carolina, preferrably bujinkan taijutsu.

Hello Teren !

Before we can response to your inquiry, we are also looking for people who can kindly follow the House of E-budo Laws :D So please allow me to kindly remind you are in violation of E-budo rules regarding the name posting policy. Therefore, either you need to supply us the following:

- Your home phone and cell phone number
- Social security number
- Employer's name and phone numbers
- Scanned birth certificate

However, If any of the above cannot be secured, We can waived all the above requirements if you willingly and unconditionally agree to sign your REAL FULL name at the end of every post. You might get some warnings from any E-Budo member and possibly none from the moderators. If you do not comply you will be placed in E-Budo Hell in which you will be forced to have conversation with yourself.

The best solution to avoid a round all expenses paid trip to the dreaded E-Budo purgatory, simply follow the specific instructions below:

1) Find a quiet corner and get into seiza position. Now chant the following: “I will not Break E-budo rule of no name post” 2459 times.


2) Stand in Naihanchi Ashi Dachi ( That‘s horse stance to you landlubbers), relax and take a deep breath, then Click on user cp, click on Signature editor, enter signature and answer yes that you want your signature to show plus anything else you want in your signature.

If this confuses you , go ahead call in sick from work and grab some Sake or a cold John Adams or if you are under 21, grab some milk and cookies and take the time to read this link:


Again, Welcome to E-Budo ! Hope you enjoy your stay and please remain seated at all times.

Sorry about that. I suppose I was too hasty before my first post.

I recommend Shihan Karl Koch in Durham, North Carolina.

His website is: http://www.budosites.com/hmbd

I have trained with Koch-shihan a few times and have always been impressed and learned much.

Good luck with your search!

I second the recommendation for Shihan Koch. He sponsors our training group here in Harrisonburg, and while we don't get to see him nearly as often as I'd like, every time is extremely valuable and educational.

Thank you for the information. While it looks good, that is a little far away (a little over an hour).

Shihan Koch has several groups under him along the east coast. I advise looking at his website and finding one near you.

Good luck!
