What qualifications do you need for yellow belt in Zen Do Kai?
Where I am from, you are required to do 5 push-ups, 5 sit-ups etc. and are required to know '5 self-defence moves' ('streetfigher's five') and 'punching routine'. You are also required to do some shadow sparring, but not much. Mostly, you will need to know all of the basic punches and some other hand strikes used in Zen Do Kai. I hope that helps.
Asked in Buddhism
Are there any books to follow the Zen noble path or Theravada Buddhism noble path for self study?
The MANUAL OF ZEN BUDDHISM. Daisetz Teitaro SuzukiI, D.LITT. Professor of Buddhist Philosophy in the Otani University, Kyoto.  is a prime source for Zen instruction. It is not written in the cozy style of many Western self improvement books. One of the first things is that there is noPath to follow in Zen and attempts to find it are meaningless.

What does the Japanese word zen-ken mean?
This is a term for Japanese martial arts. Zen ken without the hyphen refers to exercises for Japanese Swordsmanship or iaido practice. See also Zen Nippon Kendo Renmei Iaido. The word Zen is for Zen Buddhism and "Ken" is "fist" (for karate) or "sword"(for iaido). See also the philosophy of Ken Zen Ichi, where fist/sword and the zen, meditative aspect of the movement, or the fight, become one (= ichi).
Asked in Buddhism
What does Zen mean in Buddhism?
As an initial point - Buddhism does not have its own language. In the same way, Christians use a text that was originally written in several middle Eastern and Mediterranean languages, but does not speak in "Christian". The Japanese word Zen comes from the Chinese word Ch'an, which comes from the Sanskrit word dhyana (Pali: jhana), which means "meditation". Over thousands of years, the Zen school has diverged considerably from some of the other schools of Buddhism, and the word Zen has many nuances of meaning to the Zen school that are not contained in the Pali word jhana.

Asked in Pokemon, Nintendo DS
Which move is better zen headbutt or extrasensory?
Extrasensory. Zen Headbutt is a physical type move so therefore it is subject to Pokémon that have Static, Rough Skin, etc, but Extrasensory is special type move. They have the same power so that doesn't mean anything. Also, Zen Headbutt has an accuracy of 90 while Extrasensory has an accuracy of 100. And they both may cause flinching. So therefore extrasensory is better.
