Fifth Kyu

Published by at 3:13 pm under Other Stuff,Training at Home

Last night I ranked my second 5th kyu ever.  At our school you do not receive a green belt until you are 5th kyu.   The reason this is done is I want a clear distinction in Skill from a beginner to experienced practitioner.  This does not happen very often in the Bujinkan so you have no idea to whom you should look for guidance.  I will also go on to say that once you reach 5th kyu your training must change.  You are now one of the students whom will be chosen for techniques where there is difficult ukemi or harder hits.

Basically you become a personal Yabu-san.  Anyhow Congratz Marcus on your rank, for us it’s a big one.

    So, you guys don’t do patches and stars? I’ll bet you don’t bow or applaud after every technique that gets shown, either. Is that even authentic? Oh, wait… that pomp and circumstance is reserved for the blind and the insecure who demand recognition and not skill.

    Good on you, Marcus. Keep it up! See you soon.

    Now this is a reason to comment! Excellent work Marcus. I’m looking forward to training with you.

    Hmmm, difficult ukemi and harder hits. So that’s why everyone disappears after 5th.

    Personally I can’t wait, I think. I must give thanks to all my instructors who have brought me this far. Thanks Dudes.
