Does anyone have a quick discription of Ninjitsu? I'd really like to join a class.

Now or never.

I recognize I'm going to have to supply additional information otherwise your curiousity will remain piqued. So here goes; despite it being time for me to leave work and head to the gym.
What is ninjutsu? It is a martial art that is DEAD. There are fledgling people who will tend to claim they teach it but in reality what you will typically get (let's say 90% of the time) is some paranoid guy who did some karate here and there, read books on ninja, and now likes to shoot sand-tipped arrows at students or some other crap.
Yes you may get people who can still fight, or be stealthy and climb ropes, or whatever your goals may be. Bell curves and laws of averages dictate this.
But you have to treat these places on a "school-by-school" basis. They will teach wildly different curriculums and techniques.
Some claim that ninjutsu IS still alive a la Hatsumi Masaaki and people who have learned their ways from him.
Yet I caution you to take anything you gain from these types of places with a grain of salt.

Well all the "Ninjitsu" I've seen is kickboxing, karate, and gymnastics applied ineffectively.

... then why did you want to join a class? Wouldn't you be better off doing kickboxing and gymnastics?

Did you change your opinion because someone said it sucked Mathius?

its just a name though...depends on what they actually do. Whats wrong with kickboxing with dirty tricks, if the extra stuff is well intergrated?
Such as thou art, sometime was I.

I'm going to say this once...
USE THE DAMNED SEARCH FUNCTION!
From now on, I will be deleting any of these threads that I see unless I see that there is a substantive question within. You are deliberately cluttering up the board, and I don't take kindly to people taking advantage of our latitude.
Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog
