Has anyone tried it out?

I met James during my trip to Okinawa and loved talking with him. Heís a very passionate person and VERY well connected across Okinawa. I think his platform for bujin tv is genius, but I donít really hear anyone talking about it.

Thereís TONS of bunkai, straight from high ranking Okinawans who, literally, are from Okinawa. With bunkai being such a hot topic, I figured people would be nearly obsessed with this.

So Iím curious why this isnít being talked about more. Has anyone tried it out? Was anyone disappointed or impressed? How so?

I've attended a couple of the openly-available webinars, but I haven't subscribed. There have been a couple people he has brought onto the platform who give me pause, but there are definitely some great ones on there, too. I suspect the lack of buzz about it is probably because of the target audience--people interested in classical and traditional Okinawan karate. It wasn't built for sport karate people, and although there have definitely been some solid bunkai sessions, it wasn't really built for practical karate people, either.

The people that generally leaves are, in my experience, the quietest about their training. They don't share much on social media, especially. I have thousands of martial arts friends on Facebook, for example, and while I know for certain that at least two dozen of them subscribe to BujinTV, I have MAYBE seen 2 of them post about it, before.

I had never heard of it before. My guess is that it has to do with the fact that Bujin TV has a price tag, and YouTube does not. Martial Artists are generally untrusting of any information that one can get online through video. We tend to believe that the only quality training is done in person. While this is not entirely true, it does carry with it a lot of wisdom. It is helpful for new students to have someone there to train out bad habits. Experienced students have an easier time with online learning because they've already had that instructor relationship and have developed good habits. I am an example of this. I no longer have an instructor to teach me new things. I learn new kata and techniques from videos and apply them to my training as I see fit. I just learned Hamahiga no Tonfa in this way. The thing about that is that I learned it for free via YouTube. Would Bujin TV have been a better place to learn that? Maybe. Am I comfortable paying $12.99 to find out? Not really.

I just subscribed, so I will let you know what I think. Give me a few weeks.
