    Seriously dude, use the search function here. There's a summarisation on almost every thread regarding the Bujinkan, Genbunkan, ninjutsu, etc.

    Fat people disgust me in every way imaginable. I was at Freindly's with my girl tonight and saw a bunch of fat fuckers. I felt sorry for the pavement they were killing and the people who had to see them. .

    If you can find a school that holds the lineage of Shoto Tanemura, that'll be ninjitsu. I'm only personally aware of one organization that teaches it, in Colorado.

    Ninjutsu is neither fact, nor fiction, as much as it is stupidity.

    Styles are neither effective nor ineffective. Everything is dependant on how the individual trains. People win despite their style, not because of it. Invite this guy to a Throwdown. Its the only way to really know if he is talking crap or not. *shrug*

    ninjas taste like chicken.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Seeing as how ninjutsu per se is not concerned very much with combatic situations, I fail to see how you could "kick someone's ass" with it.

    Or, is this yet another case of someone collapsing ninjutsu and happo bikenjutsu? Again??

    How do you describe the difference between ninpo from ninjutsu? I asked a friend of mine at work who trains in ninpo, but I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

    In working out with this guy, we're both a little surprised how similar our two styles really are.

    Well, I'm not going to pretend to be some kind of expert or authority, but I can tell you how it was explained to me.

    Ninjutsu, as I understand it, are those arts and practices concerned with things like espionage, stealing-in, stealth, escape, evasion, unconventional strategy, and "esoteric" practices (like how meterology or geography can be applied to battles).

    Ninpo, as I understand it, is a sort of philosophy or way of looking at (and handling) situations. Hayes called it "the higher order of ninjutsu", but its not really specific or unique to ninjutsu schools. Gyokko ryu, Koto ryu, and Kukishinden ryu all contain some Ninpo.

    Well, that's my take anyway. :5emoticon
