    When I did Aikido I had trouble with suwari waza as well and a brace really doesn't help with this. I can't imagine whatever school you go to would have a problem with you sitting out on this if it...

    I guess maturity is dead, as well as mutual respect.



    What I am reffering to is the constant "ninja" jokes. Its obvious these guys are not doing ninjutsu.

    I'm familiar with the style but was under the impression it was not a koryu. I'm really looking for "old killing people sword work" if that makes any sense vs. a more modern, peace time form.

    Soke's Daikomiosai DVD's and weapon DVD's are amongst my favorite. If you are going to spend $40-$50 on a video why get any but Soke's?

    Its kind of sad the overall maturity of both sides on this issue.
