    Umm, the most recent post on your website refers to the honden as 'Otake-ha'... this is not wholly appropriate.

  2. Gagaku and Tibetan liturgical music...

    Once you get past the overt dissonance (which can be painful to those of us trained in the western musical tradition) they can be rather... tolerable...ish (though as a friend who has been...

    It was some (ninjitsu if memory serves) site that spoke about training in, or maybe preparing to fight in, the'swampest places'... dang, that was rather a long time ago.

    Inference vs implication

    In this case, it would be implied (meant to suggest) as opposed to inferred (drew from an implication).

  8. Poll: From the Amazon link

    Kiraku?

    It sounds like chigiriki from at least one ha of Kiraku-ryu (the school that I have seen seems to favor a kusari that is 1.5x longer than the jo/habu, which is itself sized to the zyphoid process of...
  10. Pai Mei/Pak Mei

    Different regional/dialectical pronounciations of the same name (White Eyebrow), so yes, same from the Shaw Brothers' movies.

    This assumes that kata is merely a performance of rote drills. While that must certainly be the case at the beginning, it is the prerogative (and duty, to some extent) of the uchidachi to not allow...

    Not so much with the connection based on that clip.

  15. Rest well Mark

    Wow- life has been busy lately, so I haven't been checking E-budo that frequently- the news hits hard.

    Though we never met in person, Mark was unfailingly generous via E-mail and PM... we have...

    Sparring

    If you (and your friends) don't have background in sword arts, 'sparring' is a bad idea for at least a couple of reasons:

  21. Hello again Mr. Lanza

    It would appear that you have invested some energy (and research?) into this topic, and don't wish to be swayed from your held beliefs. If you are soliciting geniune reaction, the fact that there is...
  22. Probably not the best challenge...

    Many folks here have a fairly broad range of experience and could not only tell you what 'branch' of the tree, but who the specific instructor of the demonstrator was... the 'aiki' world isn't so...
