The idea is: not in class, not a student, not worth a student visa, no title to stay, go home! The scholarship is minimal, it's only for room rent and (a little bit of) food. Everybody who finished high school and is in good health can apply for the bekkasei program. Most sought after bekkasei quality is a very good sense of humour and a stable mind.

      what do you mean,good health?? I have various foot and kneecap problems.(sometimes i do old woman style -kendo ) sometimes i cannot practice from the pain,and of course,no fumicomi.is it worth for me going there ,you think?
      and,how much do you need(apart from the scholarship money) per month?

      thanks in advance for your precious information!

        IBU is a sports university, sports is what they do every day. So if you are not in excellent or at least a good health, you have nothing to do over there accept for drinking shochu and beer. You go to IBU for kendo or judo, not for the academic studies. Making a chest x-ray, a health check by your family doctor and providing a medical rapport signed by your doctor is standard procedure for applying to IBU. You will also get a health check at IBU soon after your arrival. They probably just don't want you to drop dead, because of a hearth attack during practice.

          Thanks for the Bekka Manual Gonzo. Looking back at my first 28 days I can really say it has helped. Beeing prepared for the worst has made the problems I have encountered easyer. The second year exchange students tells me this has been a trouble free year so far. I thought call the cockroaches in the bekka itchen was a myth since nobody had seen the this year, but to night the invasion started

            Thanx! The cock roaches have their own season, just like the hurricanes. Don't worry they will come, they will come and than they will never leave. But, as your lawyer, I advice you to make the best of it and turn this dramatic situation around into good old fun. Buy a bb-gun at the hyuaku-en store down town and shoot the little bastards into pulp! Nothing beats the joy of stepping into the kitchen late at night (early morning) armed with a fully loaded high power Dessert Eagle or Colt 1911, switch on the lights, stemp the floor and than: Hello, hello, it's Jigeiko!

              Heh,

              Last year the american just bought 10,000 yen worth of chemical agents and sprayed the entire kitchen, nothing survived.


              Until he did that though, I had tons of fun running in there at 5am, drunk as a polish sailor, cooking ramen and wackin' the 'roaches. It was a great stress-relief.

                  What a waste to kill the roaches with poison! I killed them with anything I had, pans, lighters, shinais, news papers, bb-guns, slippers and sometimes I chopped them in two with a big chef knife, just practicing for the perfect cut! I wish they cock roaches in Holland, but we don't. I have to get back to Japan!

                            At last the qualities of the initiator of this thread are being valued for his perseverance. The moment he will read this his head will grow and grow. Pity that we have to deal with it and not you guys. Just wait until you meet him and his bone breaking waza. You have been warned!
