Shorinjikenpo

The principal of the school i went to today is also one of the few Shorinjikenpo masters in Japan, and i asked him if he would teach me the martial art, and he hooked me up with one of his students for lessons twice a week. This martial art is the oldest, supposedly, and was created by Daruma himself, the founder of Zen. It is like a mix between aikido and karate. I saw a video of my principle at a tournament and it looked amazing, like Jackie Chan. Lots of grabbing and throwing, as well as punching, kicking and blocking. it was beautiful as well. My principal/ the ninja master said I could be a black belt in three years. what the hell am i getting myself into.
