I love to watch Bujinkan videos by Hatsumi Sensei. They are always full of that something, that is kind of hard to describe in normal terms, perhaps magic of sort.
This particular video is more in a "lecture" category I guess, where Hatsumi Sensei shares some insights into his life, training and art, including an interesting lecture
on his teacher, Takamatsu sensei. Bujinkan has issued many videos and they vary greatly in their content and purposes. I recommend this one if you need to hear
more about the Ninpo in general, as I doubt you can get this information anywhere else.
In one of his videos Tai Kai videos, Hatsumi Sensei says something like "I have been teaching the same thing for many years - you are still here, which means you still
haven't got it". Although half in jest, I think his is right about that one - we probably wouldn't need anymore if we just got it once and for all.
