    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Following up on my hanbo through scrotum and out of belly ninjutsu impalement story I've got another couple of macho gems from that old club. I've come close to doing a full investigation write up on them a number of times but to be honest I bottled out because of a number of reasons).
    That club had a macho factor that was somewhere up in the stratosphere. Other than a couple of kata nothing we were thouht was actually from the Bujinkan, it was basically a Sho Kosugi fueled Hollywood impression of ninjutsu as demonstrated by a bunch of genuine bad asses. The crazy thing was even though they officially left the Bujinkan after a bust up with Hatsumi they insisted on calling themselves a Bujinkan dojo because they had registered the business name. A Bujinkan club that isn't even in the Bujinakan... the mind boggles!
    Anyway, macho things we did included - weekends camping in forests with teams hunting each other, archery including a student being shot accidently by a real crossbow bolt, knife fighting at a demonstration which turned bad and involved a black belt having his arm slashed by the head instructor after things went from friendly to serious in about 20 seconds, countless broken bones, teeth and senseless dislocations.
    Back in the 80's pre internet this was the coolest club to be in, even looking back I know it was complete bullshit but the memories are totally Enter the Ninja.
    Good times!

    I would be lying if there weren't days where I wished I could just gear-up like a ninja, stalk over to someone's house, under the cloak of darkness, and just let my "shinobigatana" do the talking.

    It wouldn't be that hard to combine hide and seek and sex. Just call it rape and have a nice day.

    Dude. Why does it have to be rape? Why couldn't two consenting adults just be having sex while hiding in the bushes? This whole "Rape. LOL." internet meme is sad.

    Ah, no. A robbery is an opportunity to kill a complete asshole without getting in trouble.

    OP, out of curiosity: How many fights in public places have you witnessed? How many shootings and stabbings have you seen in public places? For me, it's about 6 fights and no weapons in view. Not every person who gets pissed off and wants to hurt somebody is going to commit murder.

    for most bar goers martial arts is a necesity, you never know when you will be stuck in the middle of a bar fight or a drunken comfrontation

    on a different note hide and seek is loads of fun, especially in ninja outfits
