My martial arts is based on Shaolin Kung fu. Apparently, my style (not telling, guess) originated from a chinese swordsman. He was challenging every swordsmen in the nation, and won them all. He heard that the Shaolin monks, were undefeated. When hearing this, he wanted to witness it himself. He went to the Shaolin temple, and challenged them (I am not sure if it is hand to hand combat, or with swords). In the end, he lost the duel. He then stayed in the temple as a disciple (monk or something like that) and after a year or so, he challenged the monk again. He lost. Feeling miserable, the swordsman secluded himself in the forest. During his seclusion, he met different type of animals. The one that he had the most interest in, was the praying mantis. Curiously, he witnessed a fight between the mantis and a snake. The snake being the predator, was most likely to win, but the mantis never gave up. Eventually it held its ground long enough, that the snake gave up and left. The swordsman, immediately captured the mantis and put it in a cage. There, he learned the movements of the mantis and imitated its moves. Some time later, he was sitting on a rock (meditating, or just relaxing) and he caught sight of some monkeys (something happened, and he started chasing them), when he was chasing the animals, he was surprised about how fast they ran leaving him in the dust. Fortunately, he was able to learn something from this. He learned the way of how the monkeys ran in a galloping motion, and incorporated into his own. Some time later, he went back to the temple and challenged the monks again (swords or fists, I have no idea), and this time, he won with ease. There is more history about the style, but I rather not continue, because some of the info stated is not entirely correct. If anyone shares the same style, please fix it.

if anyone has any doubt taijutsu is any type of hand to hand combat in general ex.karate, shaolin fist,aikido,judo but it would be more effective because taijutsu gives you the opportunity to create your own style of battle

You didn't mention that it used to be a more deadly martial arts known as Muay Boran. It was a technique used to kill people. It became Muay Thai when the people started to use this type of fighting as a sport and the poor used it as a way of getting money.

My style is Muay Thai but it is leaning to the ancient ways of Muay Boran. In another words, I use mostly knee and elbow techniques that will most likely leave a person down on the ground twitching and foaming from the mouth when it is in a street brawl ><

Hello. I've been in martial arts for about 18 years now. I'm an instructor of koryu bujutsu (old flow of warring arts)
I am an assistant instructor of Muso Shinden ryu Iaijutsu which contains in transmission the traditions of three koryu arts:
Omori ryu Iaijutsu was created by Hayashi Morimasa in the late 1600's.
Shinto Munen ryu Kenjutsu/Battojutsu was created by Fukui Yoshihara in the early 1700's.
Hasegawa Eishin ryu was created by Hasegawa Chikaranosuke in the early 1600's.

I am also an assistant instructor of koryu Jujutsu, being trained in Kito ryu and Takenouchi ryu.

Aside from these I have taken the following throughout the years: Kyokushin Karate, Traditional Fencing, Academic Fencing, Yagyu Shinkage ryu Jojutsu and Kenjutsu, American Kempo, Kickboxing, Jeet Kune Do, Bataireacht, and Boxing.

I have also taken at the local police force: Pressure Point Control Tactics, Empty Hand Control and Handcuffing, CRMIPT, Spontaneous Knife Defense, PR-24 Baton Certification, Weapon Retention and Disarming, and G.A.G.E.

I have trained with notable martial artists such as David Lowry, Joe Craig, and the great Ishido Shizufumi.

Someone mentioned Kyokushin being hard and brutal. It isn't as such. It is a full contact art and far harder than the franchise TKD or Karate, but it doesn't take a candle to koryu Jujutsu. You don't know pain until practicing ukemiwaza on hard wood.

In addition;
Of the 9 schools of "Togakure ryu" which Masaki Hatsumi teaches, only three are verifiable and they aren't ninjutsu, they are bujutsu and the lineage is disputed.

"Ninjutsu" never involved any form of martial art of combat as the Jintonpo clearly states Disguise wearing, Infiltration, and Eavesdropping are the arts. Ninja or Shinobi no mono were spies, not assassins or warriors.

It was not until Hatsumi created the Bujinkan was such a distinguishment made.

Ninja were spies, Shikaku were assassins, and Bushi were warriors.

All but the blue ones are Bujutsu.
Bujutsu translated to War Art [Martial art] in that Martial means Militant/Military [Methods designed for mortal combat] and art being a stylized method to a means.

Ninja are more properly called Shinobi No Mono. Ninja were not samurai. Ninja were often peasants given some extra money to listen in on someone. That's about it. It was in the mid sengoku jidai when "Ninjutsu" came about and disguise wearing/acting/eavesdropping were employed in stylized methods.

Budo Taijutsu is not Ninjutsu. Budo = "War Way" Taijutsu "Body Art" or simply Taijutsu was a term used for hand to hand combat in general. Most specifically Jujutsu before the philosophical aspects [JU:Suppleness] were implemented.

Hatsumi has changed the name several times from Ninjutsu to Ninpo Bujutsu [A blatant oxymoron] to Ninpo Taijutsu to Budo Taijutsu. Plus he's often changed his story about how he came to inherit these arts which are likewise disputed [and even rebuked a few times] so all those red flags and the fact that such a thing spawned fraudulent pseudo-martial art nutcases like Stephen Hayes and Ashida Kim would lead me to be extremely wary of such a thing. Then again I prefer the authentic koryu martial arts which are actually certified. Hatsumi has no such legal certifications and therefore it can be construed that he runs a fraudulent practice if you look at it in a certain light.
