    I prefer it too; sumo is almost always a traditional, chivalrous battle. Sumo wrestlers would get criticized for talking smack before a fight too not just for smiling too much after victory. UFC is a...

    Good question, I would have to weigh the totality of circumstances to know for sure what I would do but I understand your perspective.

    I think we agree, simply stated, that it's a shame those of...

    I meant violent and sexually hardcore. I don't think depiction of rape in a game will influence those with a strong mind to go out and commit the act in society. My preferred games nowadays are GTA,...

    Ole,

    Soke and Menkyo Kaiden are not the same...Japanese lineage is difficult. :D Okamoto San, I've read, uses a term "soshi". I'm not sure what that carries.

    A "few" in ratio of total members to "credible" members.

    I'm not criticizing koryu members or non-members; if someone is a koryu member and "expert" or "delegate" in that koryu, then by all means,...

    As an add to Dr. Abrams, the book also notes sparring is part of practice at Shindo Ryu dojo and describes how kata came through in sparring for Ushiro Sensei.

    I think the use of the term "liar" is too strong. Certainly, Ellis isn't calling Tokimune a liar since there is oral history claiming Saigo did train in Daito Ryu. Differences in accounts come from...

    Nat,

    I agree with Eric on finding a group of people you enjoy spending time with but I disagree that Tomiki and DRAJJ are the same game. For one, it depends on which Daito Ryu school your speaking...
