    batshiite crazy ninjer-Antony Cummins

    YouTube - How to Present a Decapitated Head to a Samurai Lord

    So I've been lurking on MAP for a while now and I came across this gem, apparently this guy claims to be doing a commentary on the shoninki but has no ability to speak or understand Japanese or have any qualifications that would make his commentary better than random guesswork, Also the guy'd made a video to prove that he'd trained in the bujinkan and apparently his definition of proof was a T shirt with a ninjer logo on it and a mention of his teacher in a book he's written and a book on the Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto ryu, which is available at most large book stalls sadly he removed it before people could laugh any more at him. interestingly his teacher Stephen Powell is supposed to be from the amatsu but they've never heard of him and there isn't any mention of him anywhere other than this guys book, and one of Antony's books on Hattori Hanzo's was researched (if you can call it that) entirely from the internet, plus he's been claiming that his other book "To stand on a Stone" is based on his experience in western martial arts (mainly talhoffner I think) then claimed its on karate, and presently claims it's based on ninjeritsu, Haven't come across a guy like this since I first heard of Ashida Kim,are all ninjer's like this?

    He has been discussed in the subforum of JMA. The links IIF provided are quite funny/worthwile reading.

    Oh yeah, I read about that guy the other week. He interviewed Risuke Otake (head instructor of TSKSR) over drinks and then claimed that he'd told him *everything* about TSKSR's ninjutsu curriculum - in violation of the first rule of TSKSR, which is basically "you don't talk about TSKSR" (seriously, look it up)...

    The guy's teacher whose name I found in that JMA thread is a fucking riot, too.

    edit: Dennis Bartram, I think it was.

    Was that the guy who taught Cummins ninjutsu on an island in the middle of a lake?
