The Grand Master Ninja and founder of Bujinkan Ninjutsu Masaaki Hatsumi Soke beleives that if the spirit is right can be. As he writes:
“when a child is born, nobody comciously teaches it to walk or feed itself; rather these things occur instinctively. Human beings are born with almost limitless capabilities and functions, and we really should make greater use of them. For example, if a child could develop the power to think for itself , even without attending school and studied from computers or the tv, it would become far more intelligent than the students who nowadays gain entrance to the top universities. Why should everyone attend school in an identical fashion? I have no doubt that sometime in the future, schools will become superfluous-those that have been built so far are no more than money exchanges.”
Studying for oneself and making one’s own discoveries is much more important than group learning and this applies equally well to the martial arts. Of course, nothing beats attending a Dojo and rigorously training there under a master; but even if you do not attend a Dojo and simply continue training by yourself, provided you do this with a sincere spirit, that place will become a Dojo. As I often say,”Life is all about solitary training”. This is because I want serious practicioners to discover the tricks of the trade for themselves.
The world is not made up solely of good people-nor of bad people alone, either. It is quite natural that there are good and bad Budoka too. Each individual is different. I was fortunate that such a wonderful person as Takamatsu Sensei still existed, so that I could learn from him how people ought to live. Having a true heart is so important for human beings. Above all, it is important to be able to maintain this right until the end, until the day you die.
In my point of view, a child can be educated without attending the school if his family has a very good education. In order to have education a family, is important to have received it somehow so can be able to trasmit, organize and program the education of the own child. Without doubt the education of the schools and universities today is planned from the governments of each nation due to they take personal advantages trying to control the mass of people. So the educational system want be complete.
To reach a complete education we would make reference to the past years, like to the Academies of the Ancient Greece, the Monasteries of Cina and Tibet and to the Egyptian priests. There we can discover the roots of the education whereis based the modern civilization. So, try to find the best masters for the appropriate education for you and your child. This, is enough.
