Shintaido???

Hello all,

Last night I came across a programme on TV (BBC 3) talking about martial arts in Asia and one martial art in particular really caught my attention : SHINTAIDO.
It was developed by Japanese master Hiroyuki Aoki who makes his students train under ice cold waterfalls to enhance their sixth sense, and use their 'kiai' to knock opponents over. Watching their demonstration was most fascinating and almost unbelievable.

It made me wonder if Osensei himself used the Shintaido method for his incredible 'sixth sense' - thus he always knew what kind of attack was coming, he always knew how to deal with it, and always beat his opponents.

Has anyone ever heard about this? Did anyone see the programme? What are your thoughts? And if anyone could tell me more about this art I would be very grateful.

Thank you very much,

Andrew

Re: Shintaido???

Hi Andrew,

Hiroyuki Aoki was a karate teacher and Shintaido is a very new martial art. On the other hand, doing religious practices under a waterfall is very old and the Founder did it. I really can`t comment on Shintaido, but I feel that one must be aware that there are a lot of nuts in Japan trying to make money by establishing martial art groups, charging membership fees and selling videos.

Re: Shintaido???

Thanks Charles!

going by the number of replies to my question I don't think many people can comment on Shintaido!!

I tried looking for more info on the web, but nothing much came up, and what I did come up with pretty much summed up your point about the nuts in Japan!!

Thanks again

Andrew

Re: Shintaido???

I would do a search on www.e-budo.com. If anyone knows about it, then there would probably be some discussion there.

When I was in Tokyo I saw a tv show on ki/chi masters from China and Japan. It made you wonder if it was all a setup and a lof of the stuff they did looked straight out of a Streetfighter game throwing energy balls at each other and trying to make clouds dissapear by projecting ki/chi. These kinds of nuts are all over Asia trying to take advantage of people's superstitions.

Re: Shintaido???

I can make a candy bar disappear by focusing my KI on it! Or is that my lack of KI?

Re: Shintaido???

yeah i saw the programme, In my opinion, I Think that Shintaido is one of the martial arts where u have to feel it... fair enough the guy being knocked down by a Ki-ai but it would be something that i would have to feel for myself to believe... Then i would consider taking up the art.
The programme itself is a very interesting one... quite entertaining if i do say so, i particularly like the phillipino stick fighting part... rather impressive...

Take care everyone.! *thumbs up*
