I have never responded to a forum attack or a youtube / video attack in anyway, I let them talk and I simply go about my business promoting good ethics and morals to my students. I have nothing to defend, the Budo Ryu is a school of traditional martial arts that trains and teaches 7 warrior traditions.
— SORRY BUT I AM NOT SO INSECURE THAT I HAVE TO TALK TO A WEBCAM AND TRASH OTHERS ONLINE SO THAT IN MY HEAD I CAN FEEL THAT PEOPLE WILL LIKE ME, AND LIKE WHAT I DO —
I have to hold a position that reflects the dignity of the school. If I am going to tell my students that you should not fight unless you have to, that if the bully is talking than just walk the other way. If I am going to say this to my students, than that is the action that I will reflect from the school too.
Fighting is always the last answer, only fight if you have too, and these kids are talking to a computer, they are not here on the mats, they are talking to a webcam all over the world. I spend my time training, teaching and dedicating myself to the study of the arts. That is all. None of this online hate and slander has anything to do with being a good person or helping myself, my family, my friends, the school or my students in anyway at all.
I hope that you all enjoy the video and understand why I do not take part, the Budo Ryu is a professional school of marital arts and will conduct itself as such.
“People need to grow up and be adults and quit talking about each other and spend the time training instead of talking. No one is good enough to be criticizing anyone else.” – Soke Masaaki Hatsumi
Stabbed in the Back!
What do you do when you know that it is coming?
You know that you are helping someone, because they need help and they asked you to help them, yet once they get the help, they are going to drop you and give you NO CREDIT AT ALL — NO RESPECT — NO HONOR.
Do you keep helping them? if so Why?
BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT NOT HELP YOU.
HELPING OTHERS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
Right now I am helping many people in the martial arts community in various different areas from teaching, administration, business, advertising, promotional ideas and video / photography design. I love helping them, If I can use my popularity in the arts to help others that is great! This just ads more positive energy in the marital arts community! 🙂
But as I write this there are 4 people that I am helping that I have found out from different sources are telling me one things and are going to be doing another. Even though I know that I am doing A LOT OF WORK for these 4 individuals & I know from very close sources once they get what they want from me, they are going to leave and not give me or my school any credit. I am still going to help them anyway,…and this is why.
#1 – Because I said I would, my word is my honor. Even to those that I ask for help, I always do what I say I will in the end. This is the only way to keep your honor.
#2 – Because my students, friends and fans will know that I am doing the right thing, and in the end, this is the correct thing to do.
#3 – When they show their real meaning — when they show what they are really worth — everyone will know that I knew that this was going to happen, and I chose this path anyway.
Because I can sleep at night knowing that I did the best I could to helping someone become better and stronger,I cant sleep at night knowing that I am not doing the correct thing.
—- If I don’t help them, that is me placing my personal gain over them as a person, so even though I know that I am not getting the same attention that I am giving them, a warrior does not place him/her self over anyone, they do the right thing in helping those that need help —-
There are those that are just about themselves and then there are those that are about helping others. All I care about is helping people learn these arts and spread the correct teachings of Authentic Ninjutsu.
This is the essence – We have to train hard and push ourselves in all three spirits of Budo (mind, body, sprit). The day that we stop learning, stop training and stop trying to make ourselves better as well as the others around us,…is the day that we get passed by and become a faint memory. Budo has to grow with the times, as do we.”
In the end, the ones that do not help anyone and just talk hate and are so fixed on personal gain they will be a forgotten shadow in history. No one wants to go to their grave forgotten. Help anyone you can, and let them choose their destiny. I wish you all the best my friends.
Take Care, Be Safe & Good Luck in your Journey of Budo.
