    "Doshu" also claims to have trained with Oyata Taika. If I were one of his students I'd be proud to put up such photos, unless there is something amiss.


    Looks like there is supposed to be a sort of training session in Phoenix! I could check it out, but there is no contact info. I don't really have much expertise in this sort of thing anyway; I'll leave it to you guys, heh.
    Kem, look up George Palruski on e-budo's search function, you'll find a ton of stuff. None of it good.

    Hello everyone. Shintaku Doshu is my instructor. He is from Wakayama Japan, and now lives in Maryland. I live in Kansas City, but Sensei comes down every month for 5 days to train with his students here.
    I am not for sure about the naginata stuff but I have heard that this is cerimonial/dance. The women is his wife Mrs. Shintaku, she is a certified Onoe-Ryu dancer. Doshu did train with Taika Oyata for 14 years. He gained a Nanadan (7th dan) from him. Doshu holds him in a very, very high regard. However political, or personal, I am not in a position to go into details Shintaku Sensei left the Ryu Te Renmei (or Zenkoku Ryukyu Kempo Karate Kobudo Renmei) back in 1998. He has a 4th dan in Goju ryu. in Japan he was a student of Hikitsuchi (Michio?) Hanshi, a 10th dan student of O'sensei Ueshiba. For pictures look under the Photo's page then in training photos then in then click on the thumbnail with Doshu seated with Hikitsuchi Hanshi.
    Doshu also holds a 4th dan in Iaido (Eishin ryu I think, but it was gained under hikitsuchis Hanshis direction as well. I dont recall Doshus rank in Aikido.
    As far as the Parulski thing goes, I dont know what that was all about and dont care to. I think Doshu heard of him through Stephen Grayston (shindoryu.org) and invited him to teach at his training camp he holds yearly in maryland. To my knowledge parulski has not been invited back. Many training photos are in the Phots section. I hope you enjoy them. If you have questions you can email me at ryukyukempo @ gmail.com if you would like to get into touch with Doshu Shintaku to ask questions yourself, he is very friendly, so you could write a letter or call the Ten Shin Ichi Ryu office I suppose. Doshu does not do email really.
    If you want to know what he is really about you could also visit his dojo in Maryland,m feel free to email me with questions I perfer email over PM.
    Thanks!
    --Josh
    and oh some one mentioned a Ryu Te practicioner on this forum, his name is Tashi Jim Louge (9th dan) he is Taika Oyatas most senior student, and lives in South Carolina. His username is "kenpukan" his website is www.kushu.com Louge-Tashi is also very friendly, and a very kind man.
    Yours in the arts,

    Well...

    1.Tracing ones lineage back to the Hieke clan baffles me. There was a similar thread on another forum with claims of being a direct descendant to Oda Nobunaga. I can trace my lineage and a coat of arms back to the Battle of Bloodmoor but that does make me a knight. Being a yoshi does not make me samurai either!

    2. Kenbu is....... Kenbu. One of the HNIR members is a Kenbu no sensei. Some of what they do looks better than some iai I have seen. Nevertheless it's kenbu. The bu is from Buyo as in dance and not the bu in Budo.

    I cant see any relevant certification that relates this to sword arts, so I will move it to karate.

    1) Well me little Leprechaun you are right, there is something amiss. Mr. Shiro was booted out of my teacher’s association, and seems to have bumped himself up to 9th dan and taken on the title of “Doshu”. Cute.

    1) LMAO.
    Josh,
    You told me your mom wouldn’t let you train because she hates martial arts (religious reasons wasn’t it?) and you said the short time when you did train was only once every couple of months.
    Many of your previous posts were constructed in a way that lead people to think you were connected to Mr. Oyata in some way.
    You are not.
    You associate with several folks that were kicked out of Mr. Oyata’s association for misconduct. Any connection you think you might have is indistinguishable at best.

    2) NO, Shiro was BOOTED out of the Association for something he did.
    You have posted more than a few things about Mr. Oyata, his teachings, his lineage, etc that I have taken you to task on. This matter seems to be yet another.

    1) My wife can trace her linage back to the Emperor of Japan. Their family temple has been in the same spot for about 600+ years,(the mountain it sits on bears their family name) in fact Nobunaga actually tried to burn it down, the burn marks are still there. Does my wife’s family consider themselves part of the Imperial family? Hell no. In fact I tease her and tell her she has Korean blood. (some of you in Japan will get that one)
    2) Argh…..how about baffling budo instead of Karate?

    Yes, but it's not really germaine to JSA or Karate, it has been revealed to be baffling budo, simple as that.

    Rousselot Sensei,
    I am not going to get into a mud slinging contest, but I train with many people pretty regularly now, (yes it was religious reasons btw, she is a Jehovahs Wittness, I am not) not that it is at all relevent to the conversation.
    I mostly train in Tang Soo Do (MDK), but I do study from Shintaku Sensei,
    Wells Sensei, Amor Sensei, and several others. It is really none of my buisness of the doings of the Ryu Te association, you are correct I AM NOT A MEMBER, and I HAVE NEVER BEEN A MEMBER. Yes I was considering it at one time, but it did not work out, schedual etc.

    I have nothing but respect for MANY people withen the Oyata Shin Shu Ho and the Ryu Te Renmei, men like Tashi Jim Louge, and Kyoshi Stark. I have tried to sort through the politics, and have heard stories on both sides, and its not worth it. Kind of like making argument on the net, its not worth my time, and I have better things to do, like train!
    Have a nice day,
    --Josh

    1) Well it seems as if it is worth your time since you continually post information on that subject and have asked me about it in the past on more than one occasion.
    As for “politics”….there are none. Two of the folks you mentioned were “kicked out” of Mr. Oyata’s Assoc. for things they had done. (for what might be called "ethics violations") That is a fact, no politics involved.
    I have nothing to gain by telling you this.
    The only political part is when one of those members you mentioned trash talks a member (Mr. L) that actually left for personal reasons and wasn’t booted as they were. You know which one I am talking about because we have discussed it in the past.
    In a way I feel sorry for you because if they are saying they “left on their own” then they are being less than honest with you.

    Dear Rousselot Sensei (Renshi?);
    I have done a bit of research into the whole mess, and I just dont have the time and or place to deal with it, I need good Karate, thats it. I respect (highly) a great many people withen the current Ryu Te org. (btw I think you are a student of kyoshi L.) I did not leave him out intentionally I just have had NO contact with him...ever. So I cannot within reason say either way, but I have no problem with anyone really, because well they have done nothing to me. I thought that Shintaku-Sensei did leave on his own? Ah well.
    Anyway, I know Mr. L left of his own accord, but I have not and will not associate with any of them again, (long story I would not mind explaining in private email). He is a good tech. man however, I will always give him that, his bunkai and tuite was among the best I have ever viewed or experienced.
    Anyway, I am done dicussing this issue in a public forum, so feel free to email or PM If you feel the need ot desire.
    Whilst at this point I can not nessicarily agree with ALL of this, I do value your imput.
    Regards,
    --josh

    1) There is no need to use any title to address me since I am not your teacher.
    2) That is not the person I was referring to as “Mr. L”.
    3) Why? You piped up as if you knew something. Don’t get me wrong I am not trying to be little you but you have followed this same pattern on other forum. Posting replies about Mr. Oyata, members/ex-members of his association, things related to his training, history, etc when you actually don’t have all the facts.
    I am not trying to “convert” you or tell you to quite training with the people you are presently training with. Just be aware of all the facts. Both folks you mentioned actually trained with Mr. Oyata and were given rank by him and have some skill. In Shiro’s case I only know about his Karate…his kata looks fairly decent....I am not/was never interested in his sword skill or Aikido so I won’t comment on those aspects. However, I do know when someone is playing the “Asian Card”* and to me it looks as if he is doing just that. Also, considering the fact that he was only a 7th dan in my teacher’s style and a 4th dan in Goju I wonder where and from whom he got his 9th dan. But of course nobody asks.
    I also wonder why he is giving out ranks in jujutsu since to the best of my knowledge he has never trained in that art.
    (I think I will give out some rank in XXXXX art today....anybody wanna buy some....I'm "Asian" so don't worry the rank is legit. )

    *The “Asian Card” is when an Asian instructor get’s away with saying/claiming/pretending to be all kinds of crap that he knows just would not fly in his own country but that same garbage gets eaten up by non-knowing, gullible westerners.....and nobody questions it no matter how stupid it sounds because he's "Asian"

    Hello again,
    2.) I know who you were referring to (I studied with him) it was bad wording on my account I guess.
    3.)No problem, I have been familer with some people and thought I had the facts but did not, in some cases, and you live and learn. I have alot of learning to do in many areas, so I will keep from commenting on these issues unless it is cold hard facts. No offense but I have no intention to stop my study under the people I study from, I only want the karate, none of the crap that comes as a package deal.
    I am familer with the afformetioned "Asian Card" its really big in Korean MA world. I am not blindsighted by such nonsense. About the rank to Kevin Pell, dont ask me, I have no clue, I raised an eyebrow too, but its not my buisness, I think rank is crap unless you can back it up, so I dont worry to much about it, show me what you can do and that will earn you my respect, if you are deserving, not what color cloth you keep your dogi closed with!
    Anyway, Ill climb down from my soapbox, *hmph..looks like I might need a ladder...lol*

    1) Well so far it seems you have only associated with the folks that have gotten booted out of the organization. Based on this and the incorrect information you commonly post tells me someone is not being truthful to you.
    2) I have never tried to make you change your dojo. As for “crap” well you seem to be involved in it whether you like it or not.
    3) You don’t seem to be, since you “claim” to be training with a guy that obviously* seems to be playing the "Asian Card". (*not just to me but others as well). As I have read your posts in the past I can see that your knowledge of things “Asian” is pretty limited.
    4) You don’t seem to be as I have stated in #3
    5) This is an example of playing the “Asian Card”. Here is an “Asian” guy giving out rank written in Japanese, in an art he doesn’t train in and most likely doesn’t have rank in. I think if it was a photo of Pell getting rank from an Aborigine from Australia it wouldn’t have the same feel to it as getting it from a real live “Asian” Doshu
    6) Obviously your “Doshu” pal doesn’t think so since he bumped himself up a couple of dan ranks and now runs around calling himself “Doshu” . As for backing it up…..I know there are several folks in Mr. Oyata’s Assoc. that there only fear of training with “Doshu” would be that they might break him in half. Comparing “Doshu” to other members of Mr. Oyata's Assoc. there is no way in hell he would qualify as a 9th dan.

    It is sad to read the lame comments aimed at because some people saw the photo and made 'their' impressions of what was happening. I guess some of you are very proud...
