Posted in: Japanese university awards first-ever ninja studies degree See in context

Nin Japanese means Body and Jutsu as you all may know is Technique. Ninjustu is the art of mastering your body, now in practical terms this means learning how to jump and fall rolling forward, rolling backwards, self balance and many other topics. But the main point to convey here, is that Ninjutsu is not a martial art. Ninjutsu is the study of old Japanese warfare techniques, including the Ninja. It has been criticized by many people Japanese and non Japanese on the learning and practice of this fighting technique. And after so many movies bad one and good ones, I understand it does not really rhyme well with a major in an University. But is taught in special military units in US and other countries. I love Japan's culture and I think this is part of it and no need to think bad of it, sure we can make jokes, but this at one point in time in history of Japan did actually exist and is still practiced Today globally.

Awful news about child's death again never stops to saddens one's soul. May the child rest in peace. My prayers go to the parents and family. I lived on 6th floor also and I never stopped stressing about the doors being shot with securtity locks at the top of the doors. But even if one is too careful, things like this happen. I am very sorry for the loss, and I am sure the child is in kids heaven, always as special place for them. Perhaps the government can take a more proactive position to educate on children's security, I am sure that there are plenty of other risks other than the building. God bless children of Japan and the World.

Posted in: Beating the bullies: Tackling 'ijime' in Japan See in context

I believe bullies have always been there but if you try to be involved more with a since of humor and get more into the group likely this issues reduce. I have seen this growing up in hostile environment. So for young people this may help, get out there be authentic and engage. Now being in Japan and during Ishihara's Tokyo regime, as a foreigner I have to say racism and bullying at the workplace, banks , hospitals and unless you are trying to go out with a J GIrl is hard to make friends, and the main reason being here is getting a pay check and enjoy Japan but no Japanese friends. This is my case, not generalizing here. Everyone is unique as a foreigner and so are their experiences. In my case bullying ar work place it goes up and down given my weakness that I can't stay silent, I generally speak out , I normally get into trouble. But I simply don't take ST from anyone. Specially if is racism, or xenophobia. Sometimes I have open sites to propose boycott all purchases from Japan so the economy gets hit, that is where it hurst them most. And some times there are good times and make good friends. But I gave up trying to understand them, o make them understand me, Japanese mainly will always be close minded. And I had to accept it. So either between their own race and or with foreigners bully on , bully on, will continue. Just learn to play with them enjoy the bad and the good.
