    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Bujinkan showed up in my city [YES HAHA]

    Hey guys,

    Just the other day as me and my fellow martial arts enthusiast were driving back from our introductory Tai Chi* class that was just set up at this new place in town, we notice another new place in town.

    TAIGUN it says on the door and I immediately hop out of the car (I ride bitch seat) and read the flyer posted on the wall:

    Bunjinkan
    Budo taijitsu
    Bikenjutsu

    Well, I immediately turned around to my buddy with a big grin and head back to tell him not to worry its only ninja's, (we're training/teaching at Ground Zero, a BJJ/MMA gym just two blocks down), when one of the ninja's pops their head out of the door and is like : I didn't scare ya did I? She didn't.

    Regardless, I checked out their website and they have the usual claims and bullshit; dropping the Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi lineage etc.

    Now my question is, since they're obviously bullshit, how do we deal with the Bujinkan ninja's these days?

    TL;dr:

    http://www.taigundojo.com/index.html

    opened up in my town.



    *Yang style Chen form taught by scholarly hippy, actually pretty good for weight/balance distribution and not advertised as self defense which is the main problem I see with these Bujinkaners

    You can go do an intro class at the Booj school & choke out the instructor. Or you can just ignore them. Or maybe your MMA/BJJ instructor can organize a friendly get-together, you can all dress up in your gis or whatever & take them cakes & pies. Or you can send them flowers, from "An Admirer". Just some suggestions.

    That seems most prudent.

    I prefer choking out the instructor, but to be able to sleep at night, I would have to go with the csharp.negative suggestion.

    If they really are Ninja, you'll never see them anyway.

    If you are planning on dojo storming, make sure you film it. There hasn't been a good gong sau video for a while.

    If you MUST bother them, please do this at least. Ninjas must live such lonely lives, what with being invisible and all.

    I'll just assume that you didn't read much further than the first line of my post.
