    The Ninja Master Next Door

    At my local liquor store to buy some beer and Bulleitt Rye (Great Bourbon for for about $25.00) and I remembered it was Tuesday, the day when the local free paper comes out. I look at the paper rack and low and behold who do I see staring back at me then none other than Mr. Steven Hayes & wife Rumiko, ninja'd out and ready to kill.

    After procuring a copy, I rushed home and assumed the proper position for reading what I knew would be a page turning biography of one of the most dynamic MA masters in the western hemisphere.

    I was held spellbound reading about the struggle of a tall, white guy from Kettering Ohio who after spending years training in sports Karate, became dis-enchanted with corporate life in America and followed his childhood dream of recreating James Bonds trip to Japan in "You only like twice" to become a ninja and marry a Japanese woman from the sea cost of Kyushu.

    I felt his frustration as he wandered around Japan, looking for the elusive Ninja master to train him. I basked in his triumph as he finally found Dr. Hatsumi, who allowed Steven to start training with him in his small home Dojo after just one interview.

    I could continue with the emotional roller coaster that was Steven Hayes' setbacks and triumphs, but I do not want to take the pleasure I had discovering them from you, the reader.

    I feel graced to live in the same metro area as this great man, I only wish I had the exorbitant amount of money he charges to learn his great art at his Quest Center here in Centerville, Ohio.

    . . . "Dragon Body Ninja Yoga"? And people think she is teaching anything legitimate or authentic?

    There's a book, a DVD, and even a Facebook page. (Also, apparently this "Dragon Body Ninja Yoga", or 'Ryu Tai', was developed scientifically.)

    Wow the Great White Ninja is getting older.

    Look at his level of skill, half his face is invisible by default.

    Her knowledge of wielding Nihonto is fucking shocking judging by that photo.

    Techinically she is. In the Buj there is a think called Ryu Tai Undo. Ryu Tai literally means Dragon Body. And it is a yoga, I guess more pilates, type of routine. So it is "authentic" as it is a practice that people will find if they go into the Buj looking for ninjutsu but the authenticity outside the Buj might be up for debate.

    Yes. Rumiko has been training with him for decades. Also keep in mind "bikenjutsu" in Buj groups is not the same as main stream kenjutsu schools. They're NINJAS! after all.

    And this is why I came to bullshido. I would never have learned about ninjas in Ohio, or dragon body ninja yoga. Here I have been wasting my time jumping in with the non dragon body yoga guys who use the gym after we do.
