Sammy Franco sounds like he is a Grandmaster in the Soprano's School of Reality fighting. He has to be a real fatass. Does McDojo award a Dumbass of the Month? Does he bring his gay waiver to bars?

With all due respect he did manage to break the cement blocks to attain his goal. Maybe
next time he can try to break a stack of wooden boards with nails sticking out.

Bruce Lee (26) Not to be confused with the martial arts legend, but instead a deformed epileptic pyromaniac who legally changed his name in honor of his Kung-Fu-fighting hero. This British arsonist once torched an old man after arguing with him over what to feed the pigeons. He killed eleven more people when he set an old age home ablaze.
In 1980 British police arrested him in a public bathroom frequented by gay men while he was looking for a b*** job. He confessed to all his crimes and is now locked up in an insane asylum practicing his Kung-Fu kicks.

I actually trained under a student/contemporary of Mark Saito. While the legends are extraordinary, and somewhat hard to believe, the skills of the master are not. Shannon Phelps, a Master of Saito Ninjutsu, is a hell of a fighter. I would not want to mess with him. Saito and he were both trained in Hawaii by the Father you are referring to in your article.

Groganer, extraordinary? Try, BS and impossible for anyone with half a brain to believe.
You may need to be deprogrammed my friend.
Yes...certainly at one particular point in Fred Ettish's career, his students feared him as well.

What I said was that the legends are extraordinary, (which means out of the ordinary), and that they are hard to believe. I then went on to further state that Shannon Phelps is a hell of a fighter. What about that indicates that I need deprogramming?
I don't fear Shannon, nor do I fear his fighting skills. I have no need to, because I'll never fight him. I'm also no longer a student of his. That being said, I can still recognize that he is a hell of a fighter, and I can only conclude that this level of skill came from his master. Incidentally, Shannon started studying at the age of 3 or 4 because he had Polio, and it was the only way he was going to be able to live a normal life. I'd say that's pretty impressive, regardless of whether you think the legends of Saito Ninjutsu are true or not.
My guns bigger than Scrapper's!

I for one take Saito's Legends as NOT true.

I would agree with you. Learning from a ghost seems pretty ridiculous to me, though it's not out of the realm of possibilities. I personally believe that spirits, demons, ghosts, do exist, and thus why couldn't one learn from them?
That being said, it is a highly suspect legend. But it's a legend, and nothing more. It doesn't diminish the skills that the masters of this art hold.
