All sounds a bit cult-like to me. A bit far fetched I know, but it reminds me of the sort of organization you come across in fanciful nonsense like Man from Uncle films or Clive Cussler novels.

It would certainly be interesting for somebody to have a look at them, but that person would have to look better in a skirt than me.

I have a sister in law who studied Kixa for about a year. They were a strange crowd who made some claims to be the oldest martial art around and that they had some secrets scrolls that they found .In the end she saw the light .She went on some Indonesian training trip and came back double graded! She also trained in women only classes and freaked out when in a mixed class as she`d never been attacked by a man.

this is a MA but not as we know it but something between hard style Qi  Gong, "iron shirt", yoga and fakirdom - no fighting or actual "self defence" is intended or practised - Wikipedia has entry under the old name "Kateda" that does give fairly good impression what this is about.(this stuff is also known as Sindo and has other off shoots e.g. Nearu.) add a few power hungry and slightly loopy masters (at least in the past) into the mix and you get  something quite far out out on the cult continuum and what is not everyone's cup of tea - this is not to say it does not do what it says on the tin in terms of first getting the practitioners physically fit and then producing ability to perform some fakirish feats (seen it in very close quarters) - so do various other styles of meditation as well as hypnosis and self-hypnosis. the question of spiritual development probably needs to remain a question of personal experience. take your pick.

Ah, from that I infer that you mean a bit of light-hearted entertainment, but ultimately pointless? I was introduced to Clive Cussler novels by a fellow jitsuka back when I was an undergrad. I find them very entertaining, but I doubt anyone's ever taken them seriously.  :?

I still nominate Poca to infiltrate.  :P If the river festival doesn't clash with me going on holiday in July again, I could be persuaded to investigate.  :)

A lady dan grade would be ideal - is Prince Kickarse around anywhere still - she looks incredibly girly and inoffensive (until you try and attack her!).

Sadly, I'm working abroad this July, so will miss any fun myself.

When they say “self defence” with reference to real life they usually mean something similar to when others talk about “self protection” – this is to be accomplished by awareness and exuding attitude (lot of people would agree with that sort of thing) – and if worse come to worse neutralising the other guy by one “central power” fuelled swipe (there are a few set piece standard defences e.g. to straight punch or grab from behind) or withstanding their attack by your CP induced abilities – definitely no practice of sparring, amusing wristlocks or rolling around on the floor with your (giggling) partner as is the wont of jitsuka. As I said – MA but not as we know it.
